Arts Story  May 24, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...It's the artists, educators, patrons, and arts advocates who have devoted their time and effort into making the work, founding the institutions, and providing the support for the visual arts, classical music, dance, and theatre, over many years, who have made the difference. It's those individuals that the Austin Critics Table has sought to recognize in the Austin Arts Hall of Fame, and the five people being inducted this year all share a commitment to making art thrive here..."

The Luv Doc: Texas Film Hall of Fame
Columns  March 16, 2012, by Dan Hardick
"...That said, it seems that the Luvdoc is a natural-born volunteer whisperer, because I breezed through every security phalanx in the past few days like Jesus himself. This magic run started at the Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards last Thursday when, because of a rather intense pregame session that involved a bottle of mezcal and some amyl nitrate, I arrived 30 minutes late for dinner and didn’t have the time or sobriety to check in at will-call..."

City Hall Hustle: An F1 Piñata
Break it open, and out streams council confetti
News Column  June 24, 2011, by Wells Dunbar
"...Sure, the challenger who unseated incumbent Randi Shade didn't celebrate her birthday on election night, but on the Monday after – all the better to wind down from the frantic highs of campaign season. Now the question is whether Tovo will get to unwrap the issue partially responsible for her win – Formula One, the gift that keeps on giving (or taking, depending on your perspective)...."

City Hall Hustle: And So the Money Goes
Final City Budget Adoption Not Quite So Final
News Column  September 18, 2009, by Wells Dunbar
"..."They are going to have to pay a little more in taxes, and a little more in fees, to maintain the same services ... not bells and whistles." In City Hall's saner chambers, rather than disgust, there was recognition of what the budget actually is: one written for a city that, while doing better than most, still isn't doing well enough; one that's trying to maintain the services its citizens have consistently supported; one that struggles to reconcile Austin's ever swelling size with state-capped taxes perpetually lagging behind real expenses..."

City Hall Hustle: Ocean's Seven
When the joint is hoppin', the cool cats and kitties come knockin'
News Column  October 3, 2008, by Wells Dunbar
"...Noise and congestion were the specific issues, as some neighbors complained the center's current incarnation is quite large and loud enough; the PUD zoning that the "J" (as it is familiarly known) wants would enable it to build a second synagogue, day-care centers, and more. After some hallway negotiations among the various parties, the J's PUD was approved unanimously, with the proviso for expanded neighborhood notification of any additional future changes...."

Birdleggs, Strange Boys, Moonpies, Ed Hall / Gorch Fock / Brown Whörnet, and other weirdness
Music Column  July 19, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...Saturday's show at Eastside sawdust factory Delta Millworks (4701 E. Fifth) brings together a seemingly impossible lineup of Austin's veteran envelope-pushers, including Trance Syndicate alums Ed Hall, who break from their alter egos as Pong for a rare show in their lysergic, post-punk trio format, body paint, et al..."

Chicago Music Hall
Music Column  August 16, 1996, by Ken Lieck
"...Well, Peg Miller wasn't kidding when she said the new location for Chicago House would be a surprise; it's going to be located at the Austin Music Hall. Gone are the times when her best acts would get too big for the former Sixth Street club. "Now," says Miller, "I've got so much room it'll take 'em a long time to outgrow me!" The birth of the notion came when she got to talking to AMH owner Tim O'Connor at the infamous task force meeting on street closure awhile back, and its fruition came this Tuesday when the papers were signed..."

Weird Bands From Texas
Music Story  November 20, 1998, by Greg Beets
"...Continuous exposure to this "Don't-Worry-Be-Happy" pop placebo clearly demanded an overdose of mondo screeching cynicism to restore some semblance of psychic balance. As Ed Hall's drummer Lyman Hardy so eloquently stated, "When everything sounds like Wham!, there's going to be an equal and opposite reaction."..."

Cherubs Flourish in the Afterlife at SOS Fest
"We didn’t want to be a Cherubs cover band playing Heroin Man over and over for people"

Music Story  March 14, 1997
"...So what if there are over 700 bands playing this year's South by Southwest conference? You are only one person, with two legs, three days, and four nights. You couldn't possibly see every act you want to, so you're gonna have to make some hard decisions: Tony Bennett, Junior Brown, and Peter Wolf at the Austin Music Hall Thursday night, or the Grand Royal showcase at the Electric Lounge in the same time slot? And what about the Tejano Concert at the City Coliseum that same night -- all night? Matador showcase at Liberty Lunch on Friday or Amphetamine Reptile Presents... at Emo's? What's a person to do? Read the Chronicle's "Picks & Sleepers," of course, because herein are clues to nearly 300 bands playing SXSW..."

A Boy Named Emo
What was your favorite show on Red River at Emo's?
Music Story  December 30, 2011
"...The latter band in particular epitomized the best aspects of Austin punk in the Nineties. They challenged audiences to move beyond prog-punk archetypes (see 1994's Cinema Peligrosa) while embodying intrascene magnanimity..."

Get Over It
Hey, get this! It's another broken hearts & bubblegum teen flick! Based on Shakespeare! Featuring a TRL mainstay! Still reading? Then you probably fall into one of three categories: 1)...
Film Review  March 9, 2001, by Kimberley Jones
"...Get Over It is so relentlessly, gleefully dumb -- without being the slightest bit sardonic -- that you just can't help but guffaw … or groan … but probably both. There's also a pretty sweet love story going down between two appealing kids (Dunst and Foster, who looks to be all of 14 and does a mean deadpan -- hallelujah, no Freddie Prinze mugging in sight!) And don't get me started on the truly lovely fantasy sequences throughout (set in the Midsummer dream world and shot by veteran indie lenser Maryse Alberti) that's part Botticelli-beauty, part foul-mouthed faeries wreaking havoc with their pixie dust..."

Now You See Us
Your Band's First Video
Music Story  September 1, 1995
"...Heyd Fontenot, who has directed clips for Kathy McCarty, Sincola, Death Valley, and Ed Hall, is the antithesis of Shuman; though he doesn't shy away from the term "commercials," he bemoans the lack of risk-taking in videos and asks, "What music videos have you seen lately that you even remember?" In his perfect world, bands would step back and give him as much freedom as they themselves would expect from their record company...."

Conspiracy Theory #404
Music Column  February 27, 1998, by Ken Lieck
"...A couple of things have been brought to my attention recently that may seem unconnected, but taken together could bode ill for the city of Austin. First, Kent Benjamin, following a discussion with songwriter Marshall Crenshaw, sent me an e-mail detailing how in 1970, Beverly Hillbillies producer Paul Henning took a liking to the town of Branson, Missouri, which, as you all know by now, is the other "Live Music Capital of the World." Henning says he chose to center the show in the then relatively new Silver Dollar City, which the show presented as a real town, not a tourist attraction..."

Michael Barker endows Ed Lowry Student Film Program at AFS

"...AFS membership and proof of student status are required to get these Ed Lowry Tickets, either online at or at the box office. With AFS now screening films almost every evening at their relatively new location at the Marchesa Hall & Theatre, there exists no better one-stop shop in this town at which to get an education in film history...."

First Generation
The 2011 class of the Austin Arts Hall of Fame
Arts Story  June 3, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...For a decade now, the Austin Critics Table has sought to recognize our city's cultural heroes through the Austin Arts Hall of Fame, an honor roll of individuals who have made significant contributions to the community as artists, educators, and advocates for the arts. Most of the 71 inductees to date have been drawn from recent generations, but for the hall's 10th anniversary, the members of the Critics Table are reaching back to those figures whose artistic efforts go back 35, 70, 150 years..."

Live Shots
Music Story  April 15, 1999
"...When Beck's three touring musicians (bass, drums, rhythm guitar) unceremoniously opened with "What Mama Said," from the excellent, decade-anticipated, new Who Else?, the middle-aged crowd responded with expected applause -- applause that turned into a standing ovation when the British stringbox deus joined in after a few bars. If you couldn't see the 54-year-old, mop-haired string maniac, the Marshall-stack-emanated squawks, slides, and slurs made it loud and clear that Beck was in the house..."

Epiphanies for the Blind
Who's Teaching Who at the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired?
Music Story  February 23, 1996, by Mindy LaBernz
"...What is apparent, however, is that the music room Sanchez and I have finally reached looks like any other grade-school art room with paintings on the wall -- many of which are dedicated to Jon Sanchez. The only unconventionalities are the Ed Hall concert posters and a sign over the wood-pegged coat rack that reads, "For Canes Only." The Ed Hall boys have all been employed by TSBVI at one time or another, even naming an album, Albert, after an autistic student who also had a unique artistic vision, drawing pictures from odd perspectives, like the view from a menacing doctor's chair..."

The Least of These
UT professor Horace Newcomb reflects on the segregation South on the release of his friend and colleague Paul Stekler's documentary George Wallace: Settin' the Woods on Fire.
Features Story  March 10, 2000, by Horace Newcomb

Projecting an Image
In a city filled with artists and filmmakers, Luke Savisky is an original -- an innovative projectionist whose unique art has graced the surfaces of buildings, rock stars, video screens, and more for over 15 years.
Screens Story  June 16, 2000, by Bryan Poyser
"...He has augmented the work of artists of all stripes with his massive collection of film projectors and stretched the mental dimensions of cinema with his own multimedia performances. He appeared in Slacker; he has toured with the bands Poi Dog Pondering, Ed Hall, Stars of the Lid, Mercury Rev, and Sixteen Deluxe using slides and film loops as a counterpoint to the music; he has done installations for choreographers, dance troupes, theatre groups, and arts festivals like the Cinematexas Short Film Festival, FronteraFest, and Fringefest..."

Live Shots
Music Story  September 19, 1997
"...Gold could learn a lot from Sangre de Toro. The new quintet featuring two-thirds of Ed Hall (guitarist Gary Chester and drummer Lyman Hardy), Gold also sounds like two-thirds of Ed Hall: gargantuan riffs and tribal pounding, lumbering through long instrumental stretches until you get thoroughly lost in a groove..."

The Big Bang
The Fragmentation of Austin's Underground
Music Story  July 11, 1997, by Greg Beets
"...In a sense, this fragmentation brings us full circle back to the days when local purveyors of what would become the "Emo's sound" began coalescing at the Cavity. Before the Cavity opened on Red River (right between the Blue Flamingo and the old Naked Grape) in October of 1991, the motley bunch of punks and weirdos that made up nascent bands like Stumpwater, Lather, Chaindrive, and Warthog 2000 (an early edition of the Fuckemos) were the ugly bastard children of Austin music -- cast out and largely ignored by the dominant venues in much the same way as bands like Ed Hall and the Pocket FishRmen had been during their mid-Eighties teeth-cutting days...."

No Law & Order
Music Story  March 11, 1999
"...Last year, Tommy Tutone was making nostalgia with a capital "N" at Bob Popular after Austin's annual Prom. With showcases heavily weighted toward the locals, Wednesday nights are a good opportunity to support some of the best talent in Austin, from the ultra-wry country witticisms of Charlie Burton, to the chaotic pop brilliance of Daniel Johnston, Ed Hall-sized stomp of Pong, exotic desert rhythms of 1001 Nights Orchestra, and the always affecting songcraft of Ana Egge (see "SXSW Record Reviews")..."

Reality Check
Sixteen Deluxe
Music Story  January 16, 1998, by Christopher Gray
"...But reality does intrude -- even in the lives of Sixteen Deluxe, which still fields three of its four members (in addition to Smith and Clark, there's also bassist Jeff Copas and drummer Steven Hall) at the venerable Austin boho grocery and hippie shrine, Wheatsville Co-Op. Actually, today, January 16, is the day the band stops punching their time cards at Wheatsville, because starting next week, when Sparks fly, another "W" will be signing the band's paychecks..."

Manhattan Romance
New York-set indie rom-com just goes through the motions

Film Review  October 2, 2015, by Josh Kupecki
"...At one point, the main character Danny (again O’Brien, who also served as a producer on the film) quotes the prolific filmmaker directly. But while Allen, in Annie Hall and Manhattan specifically, was a bundle of overarticulated comedic neuroses, Danny is just a confused and insecure nice-guy man-child who comes off as bland and whiny..."

New Wave Schtick of the `90s
Just Can't Enough
Music Story  July 18, 1997, by Ken Lieck
"...Still, getting local music scene types to see a cover band would seem to be a task worthy of Hercules, but it was actually performed by a guy (well, a band) named Ed. King Cheese had been around for approximately a year when Ed Hall asked them to open a show for them at Emo's "As soon as we did that show," recalls Bluejay, "people were all over us..."

The Mighty Macs
This film tells the story of rookie basketball coach and future Hall of Famer Cathy Rush who led the women of Immaculata College to three consecutive national championships from 1972 to 1974.
Film Review  October 21, 2011, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...That’s especially good because there are a lot of nuns around for the dispensation of holy passes – Hail Marys and otherwise. The Mighty Macs tells the story of future Basketball Hall of Fame coach Cathy Rush who, as a rookie at the Catholic, all-women Immaculata College, led her girls to three consecutive national championships from 1972 to 1974..."

Wednesday Night SXSW Picks & Sleepers
Music Story  March 10, 2000

The War Room
Political campaigns and cinema vérité make strange bedfellows. Spin doctoring and strategic planning seem at odds with the documentarian's reveal-all approach to filmmaking. Given these inherent tensions, it's no surprise...
Film Review  November 26, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Spin doctoring and strategic planning seem at odds with the documentarian's reveal-all approach to filmmaking. Given these inherent tensions, it's no surprise that the hand-held cameras of husband and wife team, Pennebaker (Don't Look Back, Monterey Pop) and Hegedus (Town Bloody Hall), found their way behind the scenes of the 1992 Clinton campaign..."

Texas platters
Music Review  February 18, 2005, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Materializing out of the fog machine with 2001's Killer Lifestyle, one of America's great post-punk spawn, Austin's Ed Hall, added keys, a second guitar, and gave itself a New Millennium makeover: Pong. Fun replaced fury with funky, a lithe, robotic bounce – They Might Be Giants as opposed to Trance Syndicate..."

Heyd in Plain Sight
Austin painter Heyd Fontenot exposes more than himself in his new exhibition.
Arts Story  December 14, 2001, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Maybe it was this early struggle that shaped Fontenot's adult amiability, that taught him how to deal with the vicissitudes that are part of all complex art projects -- even when the rest of the team is more certainly on your side. Maybe that (and his multifaceted skills, of course) is why he was able to direct the music videos for Ed Hall's "White House Girls" and "Weirdo," for Sincola's "Bitch," why he's credited as editor or art director on films that have made the festival circuit for years, even traveling as far as Brazil's Festival de Manifestacoes das Sexulidades in '94 and '96..."
