"...The "tree" of the title, played at the start by Susan Peterson, Bird Caviel, and Blake Robbins (and later joined by most of the remaining cast), was constantly in motion, blown both gently and ferociously by the winds of Toni Bravo's stunning choreography. April Perez Moore effortlessly embodied the girl, whose protective relationship with the tree and the forest (along with other characters throughout her life) was the core of the story..."
"...Frontman Jesse Moore growls aggressively to the soaring vocals of his wife, April Perez, on keys. Guitarist Blue Mongeon, trombonist Blake Bernstein, and Phil Patterson on mandolin all shout harmonies in response..."
"...Local critics have put their heads and pens together to recognize the year's most exceptional work in theatre, dance, classical music, and visual art. The nominations for the 2005-2006 Austin Critics Table Awards, covering the period from May 1, 2005, to April 30, 2006, were assembled by an informal affiliation of arts writers, consisting of the Austin American-Statesman's Michael Barnes (arts), Jamie Smith Cantara (theatre/music), Clare Croft (dance), Randy Harriman (music), Erin Keever (visual art), Sondra Lomax (dance), David Mead (music), Tommy O'Malley (theatre), Joey Seiler (theatre), Jeanne Claire van Ryzin (arts), and Holly Williams (dance); and the Chronicle's Elizabeth Cobbe (theatre), Heather Barfield Cole (theatre), Rachel Koper (visual art), Nikki Moore (visual art), Barry Pineo (theatre), and Robert Faires (arts)..."
"...The local outfit led off its opening SXSW showcase slot with a blistering statement of intent, Mario Savio’s 1964 “put your bodies upon the gears” speech broadcasting into the explosive “Robin Hoods Rise” from standout 2013 sophomore outing For Sale. Likewise, frontman Jesse Moore pulls no punches in railing against predatory loans through “Sallie-Mae,” cast as a bitter lovers ballad...."
"...“The bill on Capitol Hill, hanging lifeless and alive, screaming, ‘Please don’t make me go in there, to the House where everything dies,’” sings Jesse Moore in the song’s refrain...."

"...A year before the county began its comprehensive look at its facilities, a simmering dispute over both managerial policy and personal disagreements between former head of Administrative Operations Alicia Perez and then-Human Resources Director Linda Moore Smith boiled over into a full-blown war, ending in lawsuits and county settlements. The dispute eventually forced out both officials and left an outsized question mark hanging over the upper levels of county organization...."

"...Johnson Two Step is a fast-paced Texas thriller in which the lives of James, a directionless college dropout, and Webb, a career criminal with his back against the wall, violently collide. Cast: Beth Broderick, James Landry Hébert, Skyy Moore, Jason Douglas, Ashley Rae Spillers (World Premiere)..."
"..."We've got to do something different," exclaimed David Garza when approached about the Chronthology release party. So the effusive pop chameleon assembled this one-time-only collaboration with folk wallflower Abra Moore and Poi Dog Pondering mainstay Frank Orrall, anchored by what he called "the police lineup for acoustic 1990s main offenders": bassist Bruce Hughes, drummer Chris Searles, percussionist John Nelson, guitarist Adam Sultan, and cellist Mark Williams. The Crack Pipes..."
"...D: Neil Jordan; with Ralph Fiennes, Julianne Moore, Stephen Rea...."
"...Abra Moore just got back from a sweet gig, performing an acoustic set along with Lisa Loeb, Lyle Lovett, and Duncan Shiek as part of the first Sundance Film Festival Music Studio, a concert filmed and audiotaped by the Sundance channel for release as a CD and possible video. HBO and VH1 have also expressed interest in the show sight unseen, and their interest is liable to increase, says Moore's management, as the footage "turned out much better than anyone expected." If nothing else, look for the show sometime in the future on the Sundance Channel (if you move somewhere that actually carries it) and the album on the Beyond label (current home to Blondie and Mötley Crüe)......"
"...Of course, it's the town's distinctive natural resources -- successful old movies and TV shows -- that are being recycled. Slated for release between January and May are modern updates of McHale's Navy with Tom Arnold and Disney's That Darn Cat, Jungle 2 Jungle's Americanization of the inexplicably successful French film Little Indian, Big City, and Val Kilmer's reincarnation of The Saint (a character played in different decades by George Sanders and Roger Moore)..."
"...The iconic Velvet Underground pioneer was a no-show for Alejandro Escovedo and Okkervil River at Stubb's and Roky Erickson at both the Austin Music Awards and his Ice Cream Social, all events rumored to be on Reed's short list of possible guest spots. Composer Steve Reich conversed with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, and fresh from recording sessions with Brian Eno and U2, Daniel Lanois premiered his new album and documentary, Here Is What Is..."
"...11pm, Maggie Mae's Rooftop With last year's eponymous debut on Peek-a-Boo Records, Austin's Peel laid down a set of slacker anthems worthy of Pavement. Allison Moore's keys birthed pop slathered with the distortion fuzz of Josh Permenter's guitar and shouted harmonies of Dakota Smith..."
