Playback: The Austin Music Poll's 11th Hour
A final push to get out the vote in the Austin Music Poll
Music Column  January 28, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...I'm advocating for a real popular vote: 59 categories determining the top bands, musicians, recordings, and businesses in our community. If you haven't already voted in the Austin Music Poll – make haste..."

Playback: Make the Austin Music Poll Great Again
Getting the vote out for the 2016/17 Austin Music Poll
Music Column  January 26, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...And yet, here I am, trying to convince you your vote matters. The government may be a lost cause, but you still have six days to cast your ballot in the Austin Music Poll. How Big Is Your Inauguration?..."

Austin Music Poll Launches Wednesday
Now complete with “Music Industry Awards” section
DAILY Music  December 29, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Ballots for the 33rd annual Austin Music Poll can be found in both print and online that day. Like always, it’s based entirely on write-in (or electronically cast) votes, allowing the community – and not just those pretentious music critics – to choose who in our city deserves formal recognition for their work...."

Playback: Your Austin Music Poll Ballot
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..."

Playback: Austin Music Awards (On Everything)
Austin Music Industry Awards down, here come the 2016/17 AMAs and a slew of SXSW buzz acts
Music Column  March 9, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...Sun Radio broke KUTX's seven-year streak, seizing Best Radio Station honors at Monday's Austin Music Industry Awards. The community love-in, crowning winners from industry-focused categories of the Austin Music Poll, rolled primo acceptance speeches from the likes of John Kunz, who collected his 35th straight Best Record Store award and noted Waterloo Records has helped music fans survive the Reagan years, both Bush administrations, and they'll be here to get us through Trump's reign..."

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. Popular vote determines winners on the business end of the Austin Music Poll, so the write-in ballot means any trophy reflects true blue community consensus...."

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..."

35 Years of the Austin Music Awards
Living in a dream
Features Story  March 2, 2017, by Doug Freeman
"...From the outset, the event promised a memorable night. With the Austin Chronicle Music Poll now in its third year of open balloting in honor of the local scene, and the inaugural Awards Show having proved a success the previous year, 1984’s lineup under the guidance of Margaret Moser and Louis Black hoped to encompass the eclecticism of the homegrown musical landscape..."

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..."

What Was Different About The Austin Chronicle's 2000-2001 Music Poll?
Music Story  March 16, 2001, by Margaret Moser
"...The number of musicians who would win the polls and appear on the covers throughout the Eighties was amazing; 50 or 60 musicians were being gathered annually, another couple dozen on the road and unable to attend. Some would go platinum and appear on MTV and in movies and win Grammys..."

Music Story  March 16, 2001, by Raoul Hernandez
"...For a town whose blood runs music, there's no lack of hipsters, scenesters, and next big things. And yet, somehow, year after year, and particularly in the past few Music Polls, the growing populace of the Texas state capital manages to ferret out the musicians who really are the best that Austin has to offer..."

Playback – Austin Loses Its Voice: Paul Ray 1942–2016
Paul Ray 1942–2016, and now, a time without twine
Music Column  January 21, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Paul Ray & the Cobras, which featured Jimmie's talented kid brother Stevie Vaughan on guitar, became local favorites, winning Band of the Year in the 1977 Austin Sun Music Poll – the template for the Austin Music Poll, in which you can currently vote for Paul Ray as Best Radio Personality and Twine Time as Best Radio Music Program. Ray also served as host for the Austin Music Awards for its first 25 years...."

Concerns With Restaurant Poll

"...Fellows, I have to say it flat-out escapes me how one can promote a so-called Texas Music Hall of Fame without Bubble Puppy in it [Music Poll 2008-2009]. Not only are we not in it, we have not been on the ballot after 27 years..."

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...."

DAILY Music  June 4, 2008, by Margaret Moser
"...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..."

Austin @ Large: New (and Improved)
The new Liveable City survey confirms a community consensus on development and governing issues.
News Column  August 8, 2003, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Last week I alluded to a new study by the all-star "quality-of-life nonprofit" Liveable City about the local economy. I don't know if the group knew that its survey -- conducted during June by local pollmasters Opinion Analysts -- would hit the streets at exactly the same time as the much-feared FY 04 city budget (see p.24)..."
