"...Bernard AllisonAntone's, October 14 In blues today, a famous last name and 35 cents buys you a local phone call. So Bernard Allison, son and pupil of late Chicago guitar legend Luther Allison, does it the old-fashioned way: sweat and talent..."
"..."What we don't want," he finally decides, "is very loud rock & roll where you can't hear yourself." Given those parameters, I'm sure some local bands will be glad to do the job for the club. And no, Campbell himself won't be taking a hand in the musical selection, though he's often seen at Antone's, and rumor has it that certain acts at Emo's are exciting enough to make him lose control of his sausage...."
"...There's one memory of Stevie Ray Vaughan so powerful it comes to my mind whenever his name is evoked. A blues guitarist was onstage playing at the original Antone's some forgotten night around 1975 -- Albert Collins, maybe, Luther Allison? Buddy Guy, Fenton Robinson, whoever it was I don't recall, not because it was insignificant, but rather because I was watching Stevie..."

"...Onstage, she burns like a cigarette in the dark and her fiery intensity can be eerily bone-rattling. (Antone's, 11pm) -- Margaret Moser..."
"...When Jimmy Rogers played Antone's in the spring of 1997, six months before he died at the age of 73, the Mississippi-born/Chicago-based blues guitarist and last living member of Muddy Waters' first great band put on a show. It wasn't a Buddy Guy extravaganza, but then that was good; Rogers at least played his guitar, those old hands doing their best to coax the same electric fire he virtually introduced to modern blues and rock..."

"...Consider this: Many active participants of the local Raul's-era punk/New Wave scene say there were few outfits more significant than the Skunks, Graham's first notable Austin band; Lou Ann Barton's first Jerry Wexler-produced set was a local blues watershed, and when Graham made the surprising transition from the Skunks straight into the heart of the Antone's uprising by backing Barton, punks and blues purists alike took notice; what about the most discussed, dissected, and analyzed movement in Austin music history, the "New Sincerity" era? Yeah, that involved Graham too, this time leading the True Believers alongside Alejandro and Javier Escovedo; there are even folks willing to credit Graham as a catalyst behind Kelly Willis' recent run of newfound vitality. Getting Graham to confirm the significance of his accomplishments isn't easy, although he comes close when talking about the True Believers...."
"...Throughout the album, recorded in 1990, the loving admiration of Flores is obvious, adding to the big-name feathers in her duet cap, following last year's work with Janis Martin and Wanda Jackson. There's some worthwhile material here; the decision is just whether you also want to pay for the lackluster tracks as well. (Friday, Antone's, 9pm) 2.5 Stars -- Lee Nichols..."

Talking about the past, the present, the future, some amazing stories were shared..."

"...It's a bit disappointing that Flanagan decided to pull himself out of the limelight, because he's as much a part of the history of Largo as Clifford Antone was of Antone's, and you want to know a bit about the personality who helped bring this talent together. Still, the final product works beautifully as a concert film and as a tribute to what Largo used to be (Flanagan has since closed the location and opened a larger club nearby, called New Largo)..."
