"...Every year booked by the current Austin Pride crew – specifically, board member and entertainment chair Nathan Garcia – has brought pleasant, left-hooky surprises in the caliber of talent at Pride (Peaches in 2012 and Leslie & the Lys in 2011) to the human-scaled sweetness of the small concrete Fiesta Gardens stage...."
"...2012 Austin Pride Parade, Sat., Sept. 22, 8pm..."
"...Check out the parade shenanigans of 2012..."
"...Well, we hope we see you out there! We hope you don't miss out. Here are some words from the Gay Place Krewe about last year's Pride for anyone who missed it in 2012...."
"...Fiercely good and fiercely bad. That was the LGBTQ world in 2012..."
"...Flynn started her improv career with it in 1989 and stuck with it not only as a performer for much of its quarter-century run but also as its business manager when franchise owner Les McGehee opened ComedySportz Playhouse, the city's first improv club, in 1996. The venue shuttered in 2003, but the improv kept popping up in various venues through 2012, and a few of its mainstays (McGehee, Flynn, Owen and Jodi Egerton, Tyler Bryce) reunited like the Beatles of improv for The Pie and Ear Show in 2013..."
"...Stones to the Big Boys’ Beatles, incendiary punks the Dicks regrouped in 2009, joined by Jesus Lizard howler David Yow, while Monte Warden restarted new country hopefuls the Wagoneers alongside Joe Ely. Moser even coaxed Christopher Cross back to the stage, pairing the yacht rock icon with young indie orchestra Mother Falcon for 2012’s show..."
"...Hans' Pils is the official liver-softener of dadcore, and at least partially responsible for all the terrific dad bods in Austin. Spicy, herbal, and hop-bittered, Hans' won a silver medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival for German-style pilsners..."
"...Kohana and Chameleon both launched in 2010, back when most people's idea of cold brew meant hot coffee poured over ice (a cardinal sin for coffee geeks). Next came Cuvée in 2012 launching their Black & Blue, with High Brew joining the highly caffeinated party in 2014...."
"...I pride this city not only as being a hotbed of creativity and talent, but also as a congregation of people with great taste. It's time for you to show it off by telling us who the best musicmakers in town are via the 2012-13 Austin Music Poll..."
"...17, Hotel Vegas, 10:15pm Possibly the purest expression of late-Seventies domestic punk you'll hear this SXSW. 2012 cassette EP No Choice and 2014 single "Razor Wire" b/w "Stab in the Dark" tell the tale beautifully: vox in the key of "sore throat," nasty guitar distortion likely generated from pawn shop Peavey tube amps, hyperthyroid tempos, and a baaad attitude..."
"...The city commissions a fairly similar version of these surveys every year, with the intention of getting a handle on community sentiment about city services, about what Austinites think the city is doing well or badly, and about any trends they might need to keep an eye on. Responses seldom change dramatically from year to year, although this survey was generated late in 2016, and the consultants note: "However, overall satisfaction with City services has declined [since 2012]..."
