"...Antone's, January 9..."
"...Even amid all the other controversy about the club, the record label, et al, you must've wondered why the big, bountiful new Antone's nightclub still doesn't have a sign -- just that big ol' banner a' flappin' in the breeze. Susan Antone notes that a very nice sign from Neon Jungle was ready in time for the club's grand opening, but that due to some sort of city regulation, they were not allowed to put it up..."
"...Antone's, Friday 29/Saturday 30..."
"...Antone's, Friday 1..."
"...I just wanted to rave about the new and improved Antone's. It is great to have them downtown again..."
"...I rely on the club listings, but for the last several months, they have been riddled with errors. For example, for several weeks (including the February 21 issue), you list Shat Records/Earthpig & Fire on Tuesday night at Antone's..."
"...Once again, a ass pocket of whiskey and blues loses out to retro nights and Sex on the Beach. Meanwhile, if you want any blues in this town at all, head over to Antone's this Sunday, where the club is having a fundraiser to pay some bills and make up for income lost during the club's brief closing last month..."
"...A beautiful example of something I came to really like was Lou Ann Barton's Read My Lips. I was working with Antone's, sort of the first big cool record for me, and between Paul Ray and Derek O'Brien, we got this very ambient, traditional-sounding record...."
"..."He's talked to everybody from Shanachie to Sony," says Susan Griswold at Bismeaux Productions. "Nothing's been inked," she adds, but, referring to the sort of arrangement that has served Jerry Jeff Walker very well, she adds that, "He'd be happy if he could have his own record label." Benson's hardly twiddling his thumbs in the meantime; he's got the Manhattan Transfer (!) coming to Bismeaux Studios at the end of November to record with the Wheel, and is talking about possibly recording a live album later this fall. Mickey Mouse's Willie The world's most famous mouse may have gotten his start in the cartoon Steamboat Willie, but who ever thought he'd be associated with another Willie by the last name of Nelson? Well, the Red-Headed Stranger will be shooting part of his Disney special, Going Home, not at Steamboat, but at Antone's later this month..."
"...Saturday: Stretford, Ms. Galaxy, Paranoids, Blue Flamingo; Webb Wilder, Antone's..."
"...So pony up your $13 to see Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Shawn Colvin, Robert Earl Keen, The Austin Lounge Lizards, and Ed Miller demonstrate why Austin is synonymous with singer-songwriters. Should be a great one! FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS Backyard, Friday 6 Nothing wrong with either of Kim Wilson's last two solo releases on Antone's records, yet the T-Birds new release, Roll of the Dice, sounds like Austin's heppest harpcat is happier than a pig in shit in the group's latest incarnation..."
"...Rumors are on the fly about the potential fate of Antone's Records' hard rock subsidiary DMZ, and even of sister label dos. Following on the heels of a series of "personnel changes," as owner Harry Friedman puts it, there's a buzz going around regarding the closing or possible sale of the Antone's subsidiaries..."
"...Other in-stores this week include Charlie Robison at MusicMania (also Friday 5pm), Jeff Buckley at Tower Records at 2pm Saturday, and the Austin Lounge Lizards at Waterloo next Thursday (5/4) at 5pm... Well, there was no Tom Petty appearance at Antone's last week, but his drummer and keyboard player showed and joined in onstage with Stephen Bruton, whose new Dos/Antone's album is due momentarily..."
"...187. Dave McClinton Antone's, 305 E..."
"...As dumbstruck by the lack of photographers present as by the music, Casey soon borrowed a Pentax, enrolled in photojournalism at UT, and documented the music he enthusiastically pursued around Austin and the state. Born of loud nights at the Armadillo and nascent Antone's, clear-eyed Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Ray Vaughan images eventually illustrated box sets and museum exhibits..."
"...Tex Pop Presents Robert Johnson in Texas 1936 - 1937. Upstairs at Antone's through July - 305 E..."

"...Guitars interpreting an apocalyptic swarm of bees ("The Nab Munch is On")? A two-minute hardcore blast that might, on the right days, actually drive you crazy ("Vapor in the Orphan Loop")? Fun, but not for the faint of heart, and maybe a tad insubstantial. (Fri., 2pm, Antone's)..."
"...Girls Rock Camp Showcase, Saturday, June 22, Antone's..."

"...Dear Editor, Those of us so lucky as to grow up amid the legends of the blues at Antone's knew we were witness to a history never to repeat itself. Hubert Sumlin stood out among all of them, not just for his unique style and phrasing, but for his genuine and open heart that embraced us all without a second thought..."

"...Thankfully, for those a bit a slow on the uptake or hoping to beat the heat, C3 Presents announced its official afterparties this week.

"...As detailed this week in Off the Record, the new Western swing collaboration between Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel, fittingly titled Willie & the Wheel, has been more than 30 years in the making. In preparation for the album’s release this week, and the Wheel’s appearance at Antone's on Saturday (with “a very special guest” in tow), OTR spoke briefly with Ray Benson...."

"...Pinetop Perkins opened the evening sporting a snazzy red suit and matching fedora.

"...Other nightstops included the Black Queen, La Cucaracha, Buffalo Gap, the Lamplight, Sit-n-Bull, the Gig, and Flight 505. Within a couple of years, Antone's opened down the street from the Ritz on Sixth Street..."
"...Only in Austin can you get away with this sort of contrived, exhausted, glittery pseudo music. A mishmash of Latin beats, electronica, and Antone's weekday rock, Austin three- to fivepiece the Rivercity Seven are McDudes who get together on weekends and record pointless tracks for their girlfriends/wives to listen to..."
"...The only foreseeable problem is that the lacking member is former vocalist/keyboardist Erika Forster, otherwise known as the charm in the soothing pop band.

"...The Neville Brothers & Wild Tchoupitoulas, Club Foot, 1983 Yet another act to cross over from the Armadillo to Antone's to Club Foot, no Nevilles show was complete without an appearance from their tribe, the Wild Tchoupitoulas.
