"...Toni Price's Tuesday night "hippie hour" at the Continental Club came to an abrupt end last week after a continuous run – except for a couple of years spent in California – that began in 1992. Club owner Steve Wertheimer didn't respond to an email asking the reason for the quick exit of the longest-running weekly residency in Austin..."
"...Lewis' exit brings a more familiar name into the fold: attorney Anne Wynne, a veteran of both Ann Richards' county commissioner and gubernatorial campaigns, and the founder of equal marriage rights nonprofit Atticus Circle. Wynne has already picked up several major endorsers, including Sen..."
"...A nightmare scenario like Ghost Ship could easily befall a tiny restaurant where an industrial-strength fog machine pumps such thick clouds that dancers can barely see their hands, let alone an exit. Or a bar that locks the doors at 2am and puts up a "private party" sign to keep the dance floor moving..."
"...Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, are calling on the federal government to release an undocumented 10-year-old with cerebral palsy from the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Border Patrol followed Rosa Maria Hernandez to a Corpus Christi hospital for surgery, waited for her, and made the arrest upon her exit..."
"...In the wake of Speaker Joe Straus declaring he will not run for re-election for the Texas House, another unexpected exit from the 2018 election cycle: Rick Cofer, the sole declared candidate to become the next chair of the Travis County Democratic Party, is withdrawing from the race...."
"...A grassroots organization opposed to the bill, Texas Works Together, did a study of how much money Texas stands to lose if SB 4 were to go into effect. An estimated 1.4 million Texans are undocumented, and Texas Works Together estimates that 10 to 15% would exit the state, leaving Texas short at least $220 million annually in local and state tax revenues...."
"...Even though Cofer only formally announced his candidacy a day after Harding announced his exit, he's already accrued endorsements from a marquee set of current and former county officials, as well as the Austin AFL-CIO Central Labor Council. He's said he wants to move the party left, and make it more impactful at the ballot box..."
"...During her time at Quickie Pickie, Pèlegrin constantly fought with Prasla and even quit on multiple occasions. After the final exit, Pèlegrin was able to collect unemployment because she proved her pay had been inconsistent..."
"...[image-1] The allegations came in the wake of the current scandal surrounding some aspects of the business culture within the Alamo Drafthouse. Those came in turn after it was revealed that disgraced former employee Devin Faraci (who resigned in 2016 after he was accused of, and did not deny, claims he had groped another critic) had been quietly re-employed soon after his exit...."
"...quartet and its mastery of psychedelic drone. As the amphitheatre filled to bursting, attendees hanging in the aisles and wings hoping to stake out a view of their gods, Warpaint earned their exit applause and instant converts...."
"...The spooky quickly gives way to the enticing as you exit the house's living room through the fireplace, closet, refrigerator, stairs, or hallway. The path you choose is a portal to alternative worlds of light, sound, and touch..."
"...5) Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. It’s like you’re taking a day trip, but without the trip taking an entire day to get there – just a little ways down MoPac on a Sunday afternoon, and there you are, wandering Lady Bird’s vast fields of petal-forward xeriscaping and outdoor sculpture of all kinds, stretching your legs along the manicured paths of environmental stewardship and Spanish-inflected architecture, and remembering to exit (as a cactus-disguised Banksy might remind you) through the gift shop...."
"...“Some of us against the [Iraq] invasion are not bleeding-heart one-worlders who want to embrace our most murderous brethren, hugging them as they repeatedly stab us. Some of us are worried that Iraq is a quagmire that we got into too quickly, still barely understand, and from which we will find no graceful exit (if, in the most optimistic scenario, a cohesive, democratic nation emerges, don't expect it to do so immediately after the first election)..."
"...And yes, after a month or so of hearing your wavering, waffling, wishy-washy voice vacillating over the most ridiculously insignificant decisions, any woman in her right mind would take the first available exit, even if you look like Cary Grant. And by the way, Cary Grant seemed to have some major therapeutic breakthroughs while undergoing LSD therapy back in the late Fifties..."
"...She's referring to the exit of original drummer Anna Lamphear, off to study law, and the addition of veteran Austin drummer Lisa Cameron, who brought a new edge to the threepiece...."
"...Rodriguez, aka Dave Tejas, has been a close friend and frequent tourmate of the Casualties since the late Nineties. In the wake of Hererra's sudden exit, they asked Rodriguez to fill in at Fuck You We Rule OK! fest in Tulsa this month and liked the results enough to keep him on for two months of touring in Europe and the U.S..."
"...It is a sign of our times that a program on the down-list HGTV cable channel can generate huge audiences and traffic. The Gaines couple's show, Fixer Upper, entices somewhere around 35,000 visitors a week to exit the interstate to make the pilgrimage to Waco..."
"...Harding seemed to further exacerbate the situation on May 31 when he told the Statesman: "I do not think it would be wise for the Democratic Party to ask an elected African-American official to resign." That comment came in a broader context – that calling for Dukes' exit could be seen by her supporters as holding her to a different standard. Harding noted that no similar resolution had been broached when former Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, a white woman, was convicted of DWI in 2013 – to which Segura-Kelly reminded: "Rosemary had her legal issues, but she kept showing up for the job..."
"...But the question isn't whether to slow down, but how to move ahead. Most fundamentally: Do we want to continue with the three-part code (see map and key at left) that virtually everyone has slammed as overly complicated and hard to use, and that has no exit strategy? If so, Council needs to declare that and shut down the conversation; if not, they need to declare that, and start a new conversation...."
"...SXSW 2017 was a slight return for Byrd after a nerve-shredding 2009 tour led to his exit. No Soundcheck for him, either..."
"...Our local team is focused on making sure that Uber works for Austinites and helping our driver-partners earn. We know that we have a lot of work to do in the city, and we couldn't be more excited for the road ahead." Considine's company also issued a statement apologizing for its abrupt exit, as well as a number of email blasts to Austin users..."
"...Anyone who's observed the byzantine processes and procedures of academia will grasp how much time the navigation of those territories requires, and logged over more than two decades ...? So in February, Magnuson announced that he was stepping down as Michener Center director. In the months since, his praises have been sung (at a pair of UT events in early spring), his exit interviews published (Texas Monthly, Austin Monthly, Alcalde), and all that's left is to clean out his desk in the Dobie House, which he'll do in the next week, and find a place for all the books accumulated there ("probably a storage unit," he says, and it doesn't sound like he's kidding)..."
"...B" – Feathers, I hate feathers/ And I hate them so that I can hardly speak. Cole Porter's "Night and Day," written for the original stage production of Gay Divorce and brought to screen in 1934's The Gay Divorcee, was another pitch-woo song, but decidedly more sexy and thrumming, "like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom, when the jungle shadows fall." Berlin was a fan: In a 1933 letter to his friend Porter, he wrote, "I am mad about 'Night and Day,' and I think it is your high spot." Exit Music (for a Film)..."
"...And maybe that’s too far a drive, just an hour, to see the world’s largest bat colony? To watch the sky turn black as twenty million flying mammals exit their subterranean bedroom community and go all aerodynamically intense as they obscure the vault, the vault, the vault of heaven?..."
"...UPDATE: Texas Department of Public Safety officers handcuffed then released at least 18 activists, including CM Greg Casar and Austin Pastor Jim Rigby, after they refused to leave the governor’s offices today. Following an all-day sit-in and protest against anti-immigrant bill SB 4, DPS officers forced journalists to exit the building when it closed at 5pm or face arrest, and blocked the entrance...."
"...Parking in the park is difficult at best. Outfitters on either bank of the river are your best bet if you plan to take the 3- to 4-hour float trip from Wursthalle to the last exit from the river..."
"...Parking in the park is extremely limited. River outfitters are your best bet to take the three-to-four hour float trip from Wursthalle to the last exit..."
"...Besides the complexities of her last decade, Elkin also serves as a featured guest when noted Austin songwriter, iconoclast, and survivor Sam Baker performs. Meanwhile Schmidt's association with wildly successful podcast Welcome to Night Vale means the couple became part of the soundtrack to its touring edition...."
"...In his exit speech, Saldaña emphasized that there is now only one minority member on the board (District 1 Trustee Ted Gordon), and no Hispanic member, even though the majority of all AISD students are Hispanic or Latino. He encouraged the board to avoid an expensive special election, and instead do as they did when the late Robert Schneider died, and pick a suitable replacement to complete his unexpired term...."
"...Advocates say that move is overdue, as LASA is turning away many qualified students. Opponents believe its exit will damage LBJ and advance inequity...."
"...It didn’t help that the show lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours. Fortunately, Glasper righted the ship at the end with a snippet of John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme,” giving the title chant to the audience to use as exit music...."
"...Nearly two hours of death-defying feats and cowgirls rocketing their horses through a barrel race beginning at 7pm left no more than a 15-minute intermission before this year’s lead-off headliner hit the revolving stage at precisely 9:01. Same gate one-ton bulls, horses, calves, sheep, and Rodeo clowns enter and exit from opens wide for a series of tractors pulling a stage onto ground zero for the (wo)man/beast battle of wills and voilà!, instant pop-up concert..."
"...Of his time working on the project, DiGiuseppe beamed, "I've enjoyed it and I'm going to miss it." That apparent amicability distinguishes his departure from other high-profile CodeNEXT shake-ups, most notably last year's resignation of project leader Matt Lewis, who split after the city's HR department determined he had harassed and retaliated against his co-workers. Nevertheless, DiGiuseppe's exit is not without its own wrinkles; it coincides with the early stages of the large-scale public outreach campaign launched after the CodeNEXT draft's recent debut..."
"...Pitts' exit, due in April after the city made him an interim internal consultant to ease the transition to a new manager, highlights that while Mayor Adler and City Council may aggressively champion efforts to bolster Austin's music scene, their impact can only extend so far against a limited budget, competing city priorities, and the necessary restrictions of bureaucracy...."
"...The writing’s on the wall, Rob: Austin City Council banned cruel devices in circuses, which shut them out, and you’re not wanted either. Many rodeos electrocute the animals in the chutes so they exit looking wild..."
"...Highland Mall proved a lot more property than the college needed, however, so the aim became to set up business incubators and secure a major tenant, one that could potentially provide workplace training and opportunities for students. Enter (and exit) Rackspace – though the company may now be less likely to serve as a destination for ACC graduates..."
"...Staged Reading of The Taming Fri., Jan. 20, 4pm, The New Movement, 616 Lavaca Playwright Lauren Gunderson (Silent Sky, Exit Pursued by Bear) has made her play The Taming available for free to any theatre artists wishing to read it as a protest to the inauguration, and thespians in more than 40 cities have taken her up on the offer..."
"...Guitar Town rises out of the working man's life epitomized by the songs of Bruce Springsteen. Earle adds a tangy Southern accent and Texas rockabilly sensibility that rides the back roads out of town on "Hillbilly Highway" with a stopover at the gas station attendant searching for something more in "Someday." Remastered, this Anniversary edition doubles up a second disc, a 19-song 1986 concert that reflects the album's attitude but also includes songs from the then-unrecorded but equally outstanding follow-up Exit 0 and Earle's now famous rendition of Springsteen's "State Trooper."..."
"...The ovals are large enough that a person could walk through. From just outside the installation, the structure is disorienting, like a hall of mirrors, offering multiple layers of entry and exit with no apparent beginning or end..."
"...Son of Texas – San Antonio – spawn of Austin (1981-2015), the longtime local hero packed up for Dallas last year when a sentry at the city limits nodded off. Willie Nelson spends more time on Maui than in his home state probably, but Escovedo’s exit still stung – like one of our unicorns got out..."
"...The play doesn't dwell on that bit of backstory, but it's notable because it makes this play hard for either side in our currently two-sided political catastrophe to embrace. Yes, a lot of people reading this review are likely to agree that we as a society need to wake up, turn off the entertainment, and exit the social media-induced stupor into which many of us have fallen..."
"...Some names may be familiar, many not. Consider Marie-Helene Bertino's "Exit Zero," about a woman having to quickly clean out the home of her estranged father..."
"...Those die-hards got their moment during his closer, a 10-minute version of “A.D.H.D.” off debut album Section.80. As Lamar made his final exit from the stage, he left the audience with a promise he made three years ago at the same site, and he wasn’t talking about his return to the same stage and time slot next Saturday during the second weekend of the festival:..."
"...In this historical drama by Lauren Gunderson (Exit, Pursued by a Bear), stars are Henrietta Leavitt's passion – a word she employs with specificity and purpose. The study of those gaseous spheres filling the cosmos inspire in her "a thrill – a bracing excitement," and she wants desperately to know how far from us they truly are – in measurable terms – so she can learn how large the universe is..."
"...West didn’t vanish in an explosion of lights or fanfare, nor did the song end with a thunderclap. Instead, a crew member released him from his harness and he walked through the nearest exit as the music faded – closer than ever, yet still out of reach...."
"...One major sticking point is the developer's plan to remove a house it purchased on 45th Street in order to extend Jackson Avenue and create another exit to the property. The BCRC and surrounding neighbors are concerned about potential commercial truck traffic and if the plans for a right-in-right-out on 45th Street are feasible..."
"...The festival’s third night, in which club shows commandeered a half-dozen venues, reunited the ATX6 for an evening engagement at a combination record store/coffee house called Exit Music For a Drink. Even in what sounds like it could be a dud of a show, the revue of Austin songwriters again found themselves in a small space packed with attentive spectators..."
"...When filing for the race closed on Aug. 23, Sosa was off the ballot, seemingly confirming her exit from elected office...."
