Music Column  August 5, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...After leaking more names in social media listening room Turntable.fm – so packed that OTR was denied digital entrance – Transmission Entertainment dropped the full list Monday afternoon, anchored by Danzig Legacy (Danzig with original Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein), Public Enemy, Passion Pit, Lykke Li, a Hot Snakes reunion, and goth-punk kings the Damned replacing X. The bill's an ambitious assortment of FFFF hits (Murder City Devils, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Negative Approach, Brian Posehn, Big Freedia), South by Southwest 2011 breakouts (Tune-Yards, Odd Future), and local talent (Okkervil River, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, OBN III's)..."

Last night of SX handicapping
Music Story  March 18, 2011
"...1:30am, Kiss & Fly In the inherently queer subgenre of New Orleans sissy bounce (excuse me, sissies doing bounce), Vockah Redu stands out as particularly odd. If Katey Red is the pioneer and Big Freedia the flamboyant star, Vockah Redu represents the avant-garde..."

Fun Fun Fun Fest kicks up dust at Waterloo Park while Lyle Lovett closes down Studio 6A
Music Column  November 12, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...Elsewhere on the local front, Hatred Surge, featuring two-thirds of Mammoth Grinder, more than lived up to its name with an extreme grindcore assault with shards of tonal fury, and the fourpiece Eagle Claw mapped the instrumental blueprint for Mastodon's headlining Leviathan. Other highlights included NOLA bounce queen Big Freedia, the death-defying stunts of Monotonix and Peelander-Z, the monolithic bludgeoning of Florida's reunited Floor, and most surprising, the full-blown rave led by international neo-disco starlet Yelle on the Blue stage Sunday...."
