Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
Nic Cage delivers one of his best and most outrageous performances in Werner Herzog's cops-and-iguanas drama.
Film Review  December 11, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Odd scenes lead to even weirder scenes; the character and the movie seem to be on the constant verge of going off the rails, and it’s a gas to watch. By the time a pair of hallucinatory iguanas start singing “Please Release Me,” you’re either in for the whole ride or not..."

The Blue Butterfly
The Hallmark homilies are all there in this family-friendly feature about a cancer-stricken 10-year-old searching for the elusive morpho butterfly, but when the principals arrive in rainforest country, the film shifts gears and begins to breathe.
Film Review  February 10, 2006, by Kimberley Jones
"...The Hallmark homilies are all there, but they're couched in a neat little nature doc. Skirting through brush, spying on dart frogs and iguanas and rhino beetles, The Blue Butterfly breeds a sort of contagious marveling at the world of green at large, and Pool's film is at its best on these long romps (who knew butterfly-net action could be so breathlessly entertaining?)..."

SXSW Picks and Sleepers
Music Story  March 14, 2003
"...IGUANAS: Somebody wake Huey Long! Everybody knows the Iguanas lugubriate the Continental Club annually Wednesday night of SXSW, not Thursday. There's also the small matter of a new Yep Roc Plastic Silver 9 Volt Heart, the lizards' first since 1999's Cajun confectioner's delight, Sugar Town..."

Guide to Austin Improv
The venues, events, troupes, and individuals who have transformed Austin into a "Yes, and" boomtown
Arts Story  August 25, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...It wasn't that everyone had a score to settle, just that this Methuselah of improv has done so much for so long that he was a natural choice. He arrived in Austin in 1992 with his "yes, and" chops honed in Houston with the Comedy Workshop touring company and in San Antonio with the Oxymorons and the Stucco Iguanas..."

DAILY Music  March 22, 2015, by Doug Freeman
"...Terry Allen kicked out “I’m Not that Kat Anymore” on keys, and Australian duo Luluc testified to Sahm’s international influence with “Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day.” Bill Kirchen and the West Side Horns established a mid-set musical groove before Cajun rocker C.C. Adcock dropped “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights” and the Iguanas rolled Tex-Mex with “Nitty Gritty.” Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez burned a dark and bluesy “Hey Baby Que Paso” with his Del Castillo offshoot Chingon...."

DAILY Music  June 2, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...In David Garza’s charismatic lockdown of all things Capital City rock y roll, including Nina Singh’s lioness beat and Suzanna Choffel’s “trial by Tejano fire,” manifested the musical side of the festival’s melting pot. His 10-minute closer, a cover cumbia of New Orleans’ Iguanas, steamrolled like Latin rock’s Lynyrd Skynyrd, Austin’s True Believers..."

After a Fashion
All style, all the time, from the Houston Ballet Ball to the Oscars
Columns  February 27, 2009, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...I wore black leather and cashmere with a white fur; my jewelry was on loan to me by the talented designer Shayna Weeden (, who was repping this particular collection for her teacher, Nacho Gomez. I'd fallen in love with the jewelry upon seeing it – enormous life-sized iguanas, horny toads, and other reptilian motifs whose tails wrapped around the neck and wrists in chunky silver..."

The Gospel According to Austin Vol. 5
Record review
Music Review  July 21, 2006, by Robert Gabriel
"...Spirited by local acts of country, blues, folk, and bluegrass backgrounds, this fifth volume of KGSR's The Gospel According to Austin stretches the word into the goodwill of neighborly interaction. While Billy Joe Shaver's original "My Mother's Name Is Victory" comes to terms with the solemn side of Christianity, Ruthie Foster triumphantly rejoices that "there's joy on the other side." Resurrecting Blind Willie Johnson's "It's Nobody's Fault But Mine," Papa Mali utilizes the Iguanas' rhythm section to elicit feelings deep down in the gut of introspection..."

Music Column  December 30, 2005, by Christopher Gray
"...Later, disaster struck much closer to home, and Austin opened its homes, municipal facilities, and checkbooks to those stranded by hurricanes Katrina and Rita; Willie needed the Erwin Center for that one. Relocating here were members of the Neville family and some Iguanas, who reconvened as the Texiles..."

While the city keeps dogs and cats on a tight leash, monkeys, along with other wild pets, swing under animal control's radar
News Story  August 5, 2005, by Cheryl Smith
"...Although Austin/Travis Co. requires owners to register their dogs and cats locally, exotic animals like monkeys don't have to go through a registration process, "so we wouldn't have any way of knowing how many iguanas, crocodiles, [or] monkeys are out there," said Dorinda Pulliam, shelter director for the Town Lake Animal Center and Austin/Travis County's assistant director for animal services..."

Mexico and Mariachis
Music Review  April 9, 2004, by Raoul Hernandez
"...That sets up my nomination for latter-day Latin standard: Antonio Banderas and Los Lobos' castanets castaway "Cancion del Mariachi," which opens Desperado. Los Lobos' live "Volver, Volver," New Orleans' Iguanas, and more Del Castillo shake it all the way home with an assist from Rodriguez's firebrand hermana, Patricia Vonne..."

Local promoter and legend Tim O'Connor is retiring (well, he says he's retiring), and I want only to praise him. Hell, look at his accomplishments -- Castle Creek, Austin Opera House, Backyard, Austin Music Hall, La Zona Rosa, Willie, Farm Aid, and that's just the beginning.
Columns  June 1, 2001, by Louis Black
"...There had long been an understanding that most clubs didn't book strong acts against the Awards Show, and some clubs even closed. There were still traditions like the Iguanas at the Continental Club, but these complemented the event..."
