"...Woe are the festival artists strapped with set times overlapping legends. Fifteen minutes into Purity Ring’s set, Depeche Mode’s constant throb bled into the Halifax-Montreal duo’s synth-pop...."
"...Finding a merry-go-round with a brass ring to grab is about as easy nowadays as finding an affordable two-bedroom in South Austin. But time was, those metallic hoops were common enough on carousels that grabbing the brass ring took root in the American lexicon as a way to describe the pursuit of a special reward, typically one involving some effort..."

"...The ambitious trio of corresponding clips, co-produced and directed by Ogden’s longtime video guru Will Martin and featuring animation by Luke Litman, were largely shot at Richard Lord’s Boxing Gym on North Lamar. The owner, a onetime Golden Gloves boxer, famously brought David Bowie to Texas in 1983 and trained him into shape via the boxing ring for his Serious Moonlight Tour..."

"...Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump blew through Austin on Tuesday with a three-ring circus featuring an interview with FOX News, fundraising, and a rally at the Travis County Expo Center. In typical Austin style, his roadshow was dogged by protesters throughout the visit..."
"...Before you dismiss Purity Ring as another disposable electronic act trying to ride the electro-hype wave, give their song “Lofticries” a listen...."
"...There's the fighting champ who never backs down from a brawl and is always out defending his title against all comers. Then there's the kind who holds on to the belt by never getting in the ring..."
"...Now, however, the local anti-toll-road group Keep MoPac Local has revealed that in January, TxDOT and CTRMA issued a bond prospectus for refunding the bonds on TxDOT's toll roads, promising Wall Street that Phase II of 45 SW would be completed by 2025, completing a western toll loop, and presumably guaranteeing a quantum jump in toll revenue by pushing traffic west through the Barton Springs recharge zone...."
"...I mean, last summer, our fair city hosted the Guitar Foundation of America's convention and international competition, for which the Austin Classical Guitar Society assembled a mind-melting week of concerts by both local virtuosos and classical guitar stars from across the globe. Then this spring, the temperatures started climbing early, what with visits from eighth blackbird, Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and Itzhak Perlman (playing with the Austin Symphony Orchestra), and the debut of the new early music choir Ensemble VIII..."
"...The press release goes on to say that “[t]he SXSW premiere will set the stage for the enigmatic duo’s first-ever official live album release on March 16, featuring 16 songs on both vinyl and CD, as well as the film.” We’re going to now kick open the door to Wild Speculation and Irresponsible Rumor-Mongering to wonder out loud if this means Jack and Meg will be making their way to Austin come March...."
"...These are people who are way too eager to have audience with rock stars. In my book, ignoring the celebrity status of those you're talking to is an effective tool to disarm them into saying things they don't say to every other media outlet..."
"...Like Justice Antonin Scalia, who snorted at the notion that Romeo and Juliet or Lolita ("A great work of art!" he sneered) might be declared illegal under the statute, the collected Texas conservatives vowed to "make sure," said Rep. Jones, "that any child pornography law protects our children from being exploited and that it is enforceable." But when pressed by reporters to describe what sort of legislation they had in mind, the House members were more than a little vague, referring only in general to San Antonio Congressman Lamar Smith's proposed "Child Obscenity and Pornography Prevention Act" as a possible model..."
"...With nearly 40 films in release this holiday season, it's harder than ever for a viewer to keep pace. Multiplying faster than partridges in pear trees, during the next five weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, these movies will vie with each other for our attention and ready cash..."
"...Sure, opera's an acquired taste; many find it hard to sit through -- much less love. After watching Jon Else's truly hilarious, Emmy- and Sundance-awarded Sing Faster: The Stagehands' Ring Cycle -- Wagner's opera from the stagehands' perspective -- even those who think a Ring Cycle is one of the choices on a washing-machine dial might be inclined to give opera a chance (if only just to experience this one as it's meant to be seen -- from a seat in the audience)..."

"...Simultaneously and bizarrely, the fighters and the fight became known, via the largesse of a byzantine network of managers, promoters, journalists, the “sweet science." But there was never anything sweet about Brooklyn-born brawler "Iron" Mike Tyson, whose ferocious fisticuffs and unmatched ability to psyche out his opponents were like some insane riff on Mandingo meets Piranha. In the ring, he was flat-out terrifying, unshakable, a thunderstorm of pain, his lightning-fast limbs corded like banyan trees, his face a lumpy, horrifying mask of endless hate..."

"...The first thing you notice when entering Vela's gym is a boxing ring in the center so huge it looks as if the place were built around it. Kids wearing white Hanes T-shirts shadow box in the corners..."
"...Directed by: Ron Shelton. Starring: Jack Carter, Richard Masur, Robert Wagner, Lucy Liu, Tom Sizemore, Lolita Davidovich, Antonio Banderas and Woody Harrelson..."
"...For Harry, that entails training and grooming the upstart, fresh-faced boxer wannabes who come to him seeking not only his profound knowledge of the sport, but also his frequent, seemingly parental advice. Most of it is common sense -- stay in school, hang tough, winning isn't everything, et cetera -- but Harry, with his piercing, haunted gaze and solemn tones, is offering much more: a way out of an increasingly perilous 'hood..."

"...Johnny Cash: a staple in any jukebox worth its salt, but not necessarily someone whose music one imagines burning up the Great White Way. Well, it sure didn't in 2006, when Ring of Fire landed on Broadway; "the Johnny Cash musical show" flopped, closing a mere month after opening..."

"...It seems like it's a good time to be Ron Hernandez, the mastermind behind rising Austin-based MMA fighting league King of Kombat. Saturday night, April 5, sees the third KoK event, World War III, at the Crockett Center, and there couldn't be a better time to be in the fight game. "Did you hear about Strikeforce getting a TV deal?" he said, as the eight-sided ring was being constructed behind him..."

"...In seeking new American fans, Lucha Libre USA aims to put their own twist on Mexico’s second-most-popular sport. By throwing American pro-wrestlers in the ring alongside luchadores from Mexico, their brand is attracting a lot of attention...."
"...Who says mass live theatre is dead? The WWE, the firm that invented the term sports entertainment, played out their particular form of physical drama and ring-shaking spectacle in front of an 11,000-strong crowd on Tuesday night at the Frank Erwin Center. For those that missed it, there's always the TV broadcast of Smackdown tonight...."
"...Twenty minutes earlier, he’d been wiped out by a chair shot delivered by Robert Roode. He’d then stood in the ring and signed autographs with fans..."
"...Gross proceeds from the brawls have jumped from $35,000 to $50,000. At the first mention of a brawl, ringside seats are snapped up by folks ranging from the old guard of Austin like Robin and Bud Shivers to a cyber vanguard like Origin Systems founder Richard Garriott..."
