Music Column  November 15, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Up all night pacing the floor, sweating, jotting names down on pieces of paper, then crumpling them in anger, and screaming "This is all wrong!" – most people don't anguish this much over the Austin Music Poll. For me, it's an important annual ritual: contemplating who in Austin music gave me the most thrills over the last 12 months...."

Armadillos for sale, Free Week, and an Austin Music Poll primer
Music Column  January 8, 2015, by Kevin Curtin
"...Some of my favorites from Free Week's first half: the Jamey Simms Band's stylistic collision of MC5 and Jimi Hendrix, the Berkshire Hounds' clever, soul-infused garage rock, and telepathic fuzz punks Hundred Visions. Since our overachieving music scene stretches a week into 10 days, enjoy four more nights of no cover. Austin Music Poll Opens..."

Austin Music Industry Award Winners
Business and non-performer accolades precede the AMAs
DAILY Music  March 7, 2016, by Raoul Hernandez
"...We winced through the Grammys and slept through the Oscars, but Monday’s second annual Austin Music Industry Awards ran neither self-congratulatory nor constituted self-important ego worship.

What Changed on the Music Poll?
Postmarks  January 3, 2009
"...Dear Editor, I'm not sure if the exclusions in the online version of the Music Poll were intentional, but there is no "strings" section, no "album art" section, and there is no "write-in" area for the Hall of Fame. There may even be more areas I didn't notice at first glance, but is this how you wanted it? It's sad that such a dependable publication could drop the ball, particularly on the Hall of Fame area, since the choices offered are quite limited..."

Dicks Should Be in Austin Music Hall of Fame
Postmarks  March 19, 2008
"...To the Austin Music Poll voters, I attended the Austin Music Awards show and had a wonderful time. If not for the glaring omission of the Dicks from the Austin Music Poll Hall of Fame [Music, March 14], the show would have been perfect. The Dicks were cited as primary influences by everyone from Henry Rollins to David Yow to Kurt Cobain and can still bring down houses in Texas and California to this day..."

The Austin Music Scene's Spectrum of Sexism
From sexual assault to all-female bills, women musicians face myriad issues in the live music capital
Music Story  January 19, 2017, by Libby Webster
"...Turns out that's an idea that extends beyond booking. Local media remains guilty of playing into the "ladies' night" mentality with their coverage, including the Chronicle, which had "women" as an individualized genre as recently as the Best Albums of 2014 critics' poll..."

2005-06 Austin Music Awards
Music Story  March 17, 2006, by Greg Beets
"...Ditto for Walter Daniels, whose beefy whiskey growl and harp-blowing garners inspiration both from Austin's live venue past at the One Knite and its present at Emo's. Young Black Joe Lewis sang like his lungs were on fire with the spirit of James Brown at the Apollo in 1962, even falling to his knees at one point..."

Ray also served as host for the Austin Music Awards for its first 25 years...."

The Next Generation of Austin Hip-Hop
Young rappers reinvent the most streamed genre in America
Music Story  August 30, 2018, by Clara Wang
"...Eventually, Dirty Wormz and League of Extraordinary Gz cracked the I-35 wall between ironic cowboy boots and Wu-Tang logos (see "You Can't Bury Me," June 8, 2012), and current Austin institution Riders Against the Storm not only became the first hip-hop act voted Austin Band of the Year in the Chronicle's 2014 Austin Music Poll, they went on to three-peat. Nevertheless, the live music capital still reserves its boners for live percussion...."

Qmmunity is so proud of you!
DAILY Qmmunity  November 1, 2018, by Sarah Marloff
"...But as the paper’s Qmmunity editor, I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I’m extra excited to see so many queer winners this year – in both the Readers Poll and Critics Picks! We all know Austin’s queer community is brimming with talented, creative, and awe-inspiring folks, but it's always rad to see them get noticed! So, we’d like to give a big round of applause to all the queer’d winners in this year's "BOA"! (And to everyone who voted for me – thank you, it really does make the hard work worth it!)..."

Austin @ Large: Austin at Large: The Toxic Agenda
The Statesman's sensational report on Barton Springs is much less than meets the eye.
News Column  January 24, 2003, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Whatever else you might think about the Statesman's ethics, at least they don't rig their Web poll. The Sunday query on the "unscientific" and easily manipulated dot-com survey was "Do you feel safe swimming in Barton Creek?" The choices were "I haven't felt safe swimming in Barton Creek for years"; "I feel as safe as I always have"; and the one they would be glad for you to pick, "After seeing this series, I certainly don't." In Sunday's issue, the daily devoted hundreds of column inches to the stories, graphics, and editorials in its Barton-Springs-is-poisoned package, in which the Statesman compares Austin's favorite urban waters to Love Canal...."

Austin Heart and Chicano Soul

"...For those who don’t know, Van Wilks fell in as one of Austin’s favorite guitarists in the 1970s and never left that choice spot. Fools raked in local music awards well before the Chronicle started; by the time our poll got going, he was one of the first Hall of Famers..."
