"...Clay Moore Elephant Room, January 6 Though the performance hit a definite, rousing peak during a fiery rendition of Nat Adderly's "Work Song," played in tribute to the recently passed trumpet player and composer, local jazz guitarist Clay Moore and his group did manage to thread four distinct playing styles into a remarkably cohesive and compelling evening of jazz at the Elephant Room. Drawing largely from his release of last year, Meeting Standards, Moore and bassist John Fremgen, drummer Brannen Temple, and a saxophonist each threw his own strength into the ring for the others to play off of -- Fremgen's precise and intuitive bass lines dancing smooth and fluid with Moore's exacting guitar, while Temple's booming drums laid out hard-etched boundaries for the straight-ahead bleating of the saxophone..."
"...Clay MooreMeeting Standards (Viewpoint) Those who frequent Austin's handful of jazz venues know about guitarist Clay Moore. Although his name only occasionally appears on the marquee, he's often found enhancing the sonic landscape of numerous local ensembles as one of the most in-demand sidemen in town..."
"...In the beamed cave that is one side of the Museum of Human Achievement, dancers Alyson Dolan, Angie Johnson, Clay Moore, and Lisa Anne Kobdish, in Popsicle-hued separates, flexed their feet into the air, grooving expansively. They examined each other's pockets and appendages before calling out to no one in particular, "Where's my phone?" Along another wall, the band – composer Andy Nolte, the multitalented Leila Louise Henley, Garry Franklin, and Alán De León Uribe – morphed from rock song to ambient vibe to virtuosic improvisation and back again..."
"...But she meets a lovely stranger at the funeral of her friend's mother – the only scene in which the two storylines merge – and instantly falls in love. That very day, Cristina Maria leaves her fiancé (dancer Clay Moore) and begins a passionate relationship with her new love, known only as Girl, performed exquisitely by Sarah Annie Navarrete..."
"..."A key to successful collaborations is ideological alignment and Badgerdog's past collaborations with the Library Foundation have been very successful. We are thrilled to see the programs continue as part of the Library Foundation's robust program offerings," said Badgerdog board member and founder Melanie Moore...."
"...This happened a lot, and that state of is-it-art? confusion ran throughout the night, culminating as we gathered in an old airport hangar across the street from the recently-renovated Thunderbird Hotel to see Sonic Youth. By 9pm, people seemed to be flowing out of the hills at an alarming rate. Thurston Moore hopped onstage to introduce the hand-picked opening act, Black Leather Jesus..."

"...Terry Bowness(Aardvark) A local pianist/composer who currently works with drummer Ernie Durawa in Los Jazz Vatos, Terry Bowness, with the help of co-producer Mitch Watkins, has delivered as cogent an Austin jazz introduction as any heard in recent years. He's aligned himself with a cadre of fine local guitarists including Watkins, Glen Rexach, Clay Moore, and Monte Mann, plus San Antonio-turned-Bay Area standout Jackie King..."
"...Not surprisingly, the mutability of the playing space attracts other theatre and dance companies to play here, especially those giving birth to original material. Past Premieres: The Speaker Speaks (Clay Nichols), The Whimsy (Steve Moore), Crucks (Kirk Lynn), Flame Failure (Dan Bonfitto), American Arcana (Cyndi Williams), Blood:Shock:Boogie (Daniel Alexander Jones)..."

"...BRUCE ROBISON: With Tim McGraw's chart-topping version of his "Angry All the Time" and cuts in the works from Lee Ann Womack, Allison Moorer, and the Dixie Chicks, Bruce Robison represents a 6-foot-7-inch stretch of Music Row right here in Austin. He also makes fine albums of his own, last year's Country Sunshine being a collection of crisp melodies and vivid narratives..."

"...Hegemier allowed that frequent rainfall since January had created a near-constant pool of water in the pond, which delayed efforts to revegetate the area to prevent further soil erosion. Project engineer Ed Moore had hoped to finish repairs on the dam facilities by this week, and Hegemier said Tuesday that work on the riser pipe has apparently been completed..."
"...The 2012 Fusebox Festival was over, and I was in charge of the SVT lobby gallery – I was and am its curator, its organizer, its pimp, as I have been since Larson offered me the position in 2011. And the next gallery show after Beeler's "Food Porn" exhibition was coming in – as preceded by prints from Tim Doyle and originals by Chronicle Arts Editor Robert Faires and the patriotic array of the "Presidential Losers" show; as followed by the photography of Shelley Hiam and the surreal Old Mastery oils of Alonso Rey and the mixed-media portraits of Beth Consetta Rubel and the woodcuts of Laura Thoms, the abstracts of Roy Moore, the aquatic emplushenings of Kristin Hogan..."

"...My favorite film of this year's Sundance was The Kids Are All Right by Lisa Cholodenko (High Art, Laurel Canyon). Starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore as a middle-aged lesbian couple, the film examines what happens within their family when their two teenage children seek out their biological father (played by Mark Ruffalo)..."
