Come & Take It Live
"...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...."
"...XXI. Marjorie Baumgarten: "What is there to say about a picture hailed as 'the date movie of the summer' that leaves you cold and running for the exit when all those around you are laughing their heads off? That you're having an off night? That your date is less than ideal? That you are right and the world is wrong? That the world is right and you're a mess? Vacillating between these conclusions, I haven't yet been able to pick the right one..."
"...Duncan said, "Many of our traditional donors have been hesitant to give money to the party after watching Mr. Morrow's antics." With his exit, he said he will be calling those same donors to tell them, "Guess what? Mr..."
"...Place 9: So far, there's only one candidate filed to fill Kaplan's empty seat: former ACC student and Bernie 2016 organizer Julie Ann Nitsch, who also serves as a member of the city's Committee for Quality of Life for College Students. However, due to Kaplan's late exit, filing has been extended until end of business on Aug..."
"...On the men's side, the group stage is finishing up as we go to press, with one tasty matchup already set, Argentina and Mexico out early, and Brazil needing something better than their two scoreless draws so far to avoid another humiliating first round exit...."
"...Despite McCarthy's exit and Sikes' entrance, recent trends in the homegrown recording industry aren't openings and closings, but rather studio owners finding variant solutions to continue in an increasingly expensive city. For Chico Jones, that meant teaming up..."
"...Our group – half friends, half strangers – met in the cozy waiting area, where toys and brain-teasers are provided to warm up prospective escapees. When our time came, the gentleman at the front desk donned a satin cloak and launched into his introduction: For our final exam, we must complete the challenges laid out by the headmaster, unlocking a chest containing our diplomas and, of course, the key that unlocks the exit door...."
"...Punk magazine founder/cartoonist John Holmstrom contributed much to the Queens-bred chainsaw punks' graphic presentation, from the fumetti gracing the "Blitzkrieg Bop" 45 sleeve to the hilarious "Ramones map of the world" stamping the back of third LP Rocket to Russia. For Road to Ruin, a transitional record marking the exit of original drummer Tommy Ramone and debut of Marky Ramone, featured the closest thing they had to a hit single, "I Wanna Be Sedated." Holmstrom adapted a concept from Scottish fan Gus MacDonald, rendering it more Hanna-Barbera. – Tim Stegall Doug SahmGroover's Paradise (1974)..."
"...Resaca de la Palma State Park is northwest of Brownsville about five miles off of I-69 East at the Olmito exit. A tram takes visitors to the park's 15 trailheads..."
"...During our "exit interview," Nick Cannon assures me that he's never been rejected at any point in his life. "What's next for your band?" he asks with the kind of joylessness that comes from someone who must've had to watch Glitter a lot..."
"...By the time we hit midtown, the train was packed. Jodi and I had miscalculated the best stop to get us uptown, so we decided to hop off two stops before our planned exit for a better route..."
"...The book suffers from typos, fanboy superlatives, and the redundancy of following an explanatory paragraph with a direct quote saying the exact same thing. Still, Let's Go to Hell brims with plentiful drama as band members exit via fistfights and surprise bus tickets home, not to mention universally disastrous relationships with record labels..."
"...With July 1 looming, and closer than it appears, former Longhorn great Kevin Durant's tumultuous exit from playoffs – via a dramatic comeback by the Golden State Warriors – only puts the prolific scorer's future into full view. He's scheduled to become a free agent, where no less than six teams will vie for the 6'11" future Hall of Famer's services..."
"...Dear Editor, Michael King's column, "Point Austin: Pushed Out" [News, May 27] asks why many of Austin's African-American residents are moving out of the city. As someone who lives with one of those African-American residents, the short answer is that the policies pushed by your paper are a big driver of that exodus. One example: The Austin Urban League and the Austin chapter of the NAACP wrote an open letter before the vote that caused Uber and Lyft to exit the city, saying that the fingerprint requirement would disproportionately harm poor and minority residents of Austin..."
"...If the city does accept it as a valid petition, Council would need a three-quarters supermajority to pass the PUD, if it's rejected by the Planning and/or Zoning and Platting commissions. The lawsuit is just one avenue pursued by homeowners like Cat and Ryder Jeanes, who live next door to an ARG-owned house on 45th Street that ARG wants to tear down and replace with an exit to the development..."
"...At what he had hoped would be a victory rally in Indianapolis, the junior senator from Texas absorbed the fact that he had suffered a 16-point loss to Donald Trump. Cruz announced his exit from the race thusly: "From the beginning, I've said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory..."
"...Sadly, the wedding also marks the couple’s local exit. Like so many local musicians, they feel they can’t make it here anymore in the new Austin...."
"...No, the road to hell is paved with good intentions and you – quite wisely might I say – are looking for an easy exit ramp. There isn't one..."
"...It's all over the place. That design has this exit point drawn into it..."
"...Horace Trubridge, Assistant General Secretary of the British Musicians’ Union, accurately described it as an “attitude.” He then later so destroyed his own credibility to speak on the subject with any authority by dismissing U.S. punk as “too pretty and commercial” that he caused ex-Gang of Four drummer and loyal SXSW attendee Hugo Burnham to violently shake his head and exit the audience and room...."
"...It is a truth universally acknowledged that an Anglophile audience must be in want of something to bitch about, from Reign to Downton Abbey, which both end this year. In the latter case, perhaps awful Edith's vague romance with a mysterious cousin was one possible reason to exit Downton Abbey, which comes to its American close on Sunday, March 6, 8pm...."
"...The Horns were never in the contest, as Kansas played loose and without pressure, as they already had at least a share of the Big 12 regular season championship. Short an early exit from the conference tournament, the Jayhawks have likely wrapped up a No..."
"...Buck Pollard's speedy and peculiar exit as longtime chief leaves the position in turmoil for the former city-dwelling FBI agent McBride, who steps in unaware of the generations-deep web of good ol' boy secrets. The story starts off with a double murder, and the plot just gets twistier – terrible for McBride and his angsty (but likable) teenage son Ethan, but great for the reader..."
"...Her death is not an excuse for the main plot or a day in the life of a jaded detective. Her exit from the world is a profound, shattering event to those who loved her, changing their lives and demanding of their all-consuming attention, 'til they find purpose only in their search for the truth of her life and the facts of her murder...."
"...Every March, the spectacle of South by Southwest rolls into town like a carnival caravan: building stages in parking lots, erecting towering shrines to brands, transforming taverns into tech studios – an installation here, an activation there, magnification everywhere. Then, nine days later, exit the extravaganza and what's left? Besides millions of greenbacks in tourism dollars, that is...."
"...Cupp's Drive-Inn is at 1424 Speight Ave., just north and east of the 17th Street exit off I-35 in Waco. The grill serves a full breakfast menu from 8:30-11am, and old-fashioned hamburgers until 3:30pm, Monday through Saturday..."
"...I could've lounged at those picnic tables all day, but the morning-after was beginning to stretch into afternoon; it was time for me and my pup to gracefully make our exit. Important side note: Both spots we visited were dog-friendly..."
"...He brings 25 years of cumulative experience at the D.A.'s Office, returning as an assistant D.A. in 2008 after endorsing Lehmberg in the primary run-off following his exit..."
"...With Paul Ray’s exit this morning at St. David’s South Austin Medical Center, Austin has not only lost one of its unique voices, but also one of its great characters..."
"...Rick Perry – officially becoming The-Longest-Serving-Governor-in-Texas-History – finally stepped down in January from his endless regime, then took one last swipe at a presidential run, to a predictably early exit. It's some comfort that the national electorate isn't as credulous as that of Texas – although among this year's field, hard-right Perry was just too moderate..."
"...Elliott Naishtat, D-Austin. Her exit means a vacant seat on the Nov..."
"...I admit – their exit plans have reminded me of liberals' threat to move to Canada if Dubya won the presidency back in 2000. Of the presumably few who actually made good on the promise, I've genuinely wondered: How'd that work out? Is the poutine as good as they say? Is there still room for the rest of us?..."
"...A week ago, it looked like it would be slack times for state candidates and campaign operatives in Travis County, with few contested primaries on tap. But a flurry of last-minute filings – plus the unexpected but unsurprising exit of an incumbent – means crowded state races for the next three months..."
"...That Cage picked this material is less bizarre than the fact that it was directed by Uli Edel, responsible for serious art-house fare like The Baader Meinhof Complex, Last Exit to Brooklyn, and seminal Berlin heroin drama Christiane F. However, as oddball, low-budget, and straight-to-VOD as this is, there are flashes of excellence, including one shot that is truly haunting..."
"...Po Po Restaurant is just north of I-10 on FM 289 at the Welfare exit. Reservations are recommended at 830/537-4194..."
"...Serenaded by Verdi, Puccini, and other composers whose operatic works she treasured, a treasured friend of the Austin arts scene made her final exit from it Thursday. Jo Anne Christian, a crusader in the campaign to build the Long Center and a passionate patron and advocate for many cultural causes, died at Christopher House..."
"...Then on Nov. 3, the COTA board announced the exit of CEO Jason Dial, saying they were “going in a different direction.”..."
