Hikes and Boyfrndz Mosh McAllen
Austin twofer ventures far south on a Lone Star trek
DAILY Music  June 6, 2016, by Bryan Rolli
"...And yet, that was the predicament Hikes bassist Colin Jenkins found himself in on Friday night at the Yerberia Cultura in McAllen after popping the strap lock clean off his instrument during the cacophonous freak-out at the end of “Tenth Walk.” Thankfully, a fellow bass player came to the rescue with the loan of his axe for the remainder of the set. Order restored, the Austin fourpiece resumed their unique brand of technical, mind-bending math-rock, infused with nature-inspired soundscapes dubbed “math-folk.”..."

City Manager Toby Futrell says the budget won't balance without years of tax hikes and service cuts
News Story  May 30, 2003, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...At least one council member -- Mayor-elect Will Wynn -- has suggested that maybe the citizens would be willing to accept deeper cuts if Futrell offered them, in an effort to avoid those kind of tax hikes. But at least one council candidate -- Margot Clarke -- has suggested that voters proved otherwise when they approved Austin Community College's tax increase and that anti-tax pandering is not only unrealistic but may be unnecessary..."

"...(See “Leak No More: Paul Robbins on Austin Water” in the May 11 Chronicle.) Water saving gains belong to Austin citizens and businesses, not the incumbent.
