Music Story  December 4, 1998, by Jay Hardwig
"...They came back to Austin whenever they could, and in 1971, with Godfrey's influence waning, they returned to Austin to stay.

Music Story  August 13, 2010, by Margaret Moser

DAILY Screens  June 24, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...I rang up four different local video outlets and got nowhere, fast.

You Do Not Tear Down Landmarks
Music Story  February 4, 1999, by Raoul Hernandez
"...In the looming shadow of the massive Texas State Capitol, it's easy to miss. The bus stop on the corner might call your attention to it, or the benches nearby if you need to take a load off, but if you're at the intersection of 11th Street and Congress Avenue, you're probably there for one reason only -- to conduct business at the headquarters of the most Republican state in the union -- so chances are you just walked past this historical landmark..."

Violators Will Be Punished
Music Story  September 12, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...While Shelton moved to San Francisco and let the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers run amok, others hung onto Austin's nascent poster art business as long as possible, eventually forming a locally owned and operated poster art ad biz, Directions Company -- by the hippies, for the hippies.
