"...In the chaos of Katrina's early aftermath, when relief was still disparate and unorganized, Scott Crow traveled from Austin to New Orleans to look for his missing friend. Robert Hillary King, a former Black Panther released from solitary confinement only a few years earlier, was found alive and well on his front porch, and soon afterward, Crow, along with Sharon Johnson and Malik Rahim, founded the Common Ground Collective with the goal to deliver basic aid to poor and predominantly black neighborhoods that were being neglected by federal response..."
"...Paul police searched the trailer without a warrant and seized the shields. The next day, two of the van's passengers, David McKay, 22, and Bradley Crowder, 23, were arrested for disorderly conduct..."
"...This guy wears bad luck like the grimy trenchcoats of his protagonists, only his zipper's stuck and he can't seem to shake the damn thing off. It's been four years since his stunning debut with The Crow, and by all accounts Proyas has spent much of the intervening time trying to come to grips with the tragic on-set death of that film's star, Brandon Lee..."
"...Brandon Darby is no stranger to media attention, but he's new to the kind he's been getting since a St. Paul Pioneer Press article identified him in October as the informant who had "infiltrated" Bradley Crowder and David McKay's "protest group." A few days later, Darby's friend and fellow Austin activist Scott Crow passionately defended Darby on indie media site www.ntimc.org, calling the report an "absolute COINTELPRO lie." Crow was ultimately proven wrong by Darby himself, who proudly admitted his informant's role in a December open letter..."
"...Hart's War is at times genuinely affecting; Farrell, last seen in the locally shot and all-but-forgotten American Outlaws, pulls off a straightforward performance that does neither himself nor the story any disservice. Likewise Willis, who's playing on his crow's-feet more and more as time goes by..."
"...Ever since his sudden and premature death in 1973 at the age of 32 only a few weeks shy of the debut of his most successful film, Enter the Dragon, Bruce Lee's demise has been shrouded in mystery, rumor, conspiracy theory and whispered lore. Now twenty years later, this loving film biography fashioned from his widow Linda's memoir, Bruce Lee: The Man Only I Knew, is scheduled for release only a few short weeks following the apparently accidental gunshot death of rising film star Brandon Lee, son of Bruce and Linda, while working on the set of a movie called The Crow..."
"...Listen, my children, and you shall hear of those glorious daze of yore when Alvin Crow & the Pleasant Valley Boys were kings of the scene in the 1970s. Any night Alvin laid his horsehair bow to catgut strings was a good night but there was something about his brand of country that skirted the progressive tag while still being as subversive as it could..."
"...Certainly some traditionalists will look at the bands on here and take exception, but what’s amazing is that so many young groups have put out truly impressive work the past few years. Groups like Old Crow Medicine Show, the Steeldrivers, and especially Punch Brothers have contorted the genre without sacrificing the integrity of the tradition, ushering in a new generation of artists that have revitalized bluegrass in the 21st century. 1) Old Crow Medicine Show, Tennessee Pusher (Nettwerk)..."
"...AUSTIN ZINE FEST Radical DIYers show you how print media is not dead. Liberty or Death Industries, the Yellow Bike Project, Austin Creative Reuse, Scott Crow, Valerie Romness, and yours truly, Kate X, will all put it in black-and-white..."
"...Friday’s performance at the No Zone (5809 Alsace Trail) promises rebellion beyond music. After a very loud bill of various homegrown and touring noise crews, Austinite and political activist Scott Crow (generally not capitalized) gives a PowerPoint presentation on creating collective power to confront capitalism..."
"...SCOTT CROW will talk about his new book, Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy and the Common Ground Collective, which takes on post-Katrina FEMA and radical activism. 7pm..."
"...On Slusher's other battle front is Crow, whose critics have portrayed him as part of the extremist fringe, out of step with the political times. Indeed, such are the circles Crow runs in that he considers the pejorative "social engineers" to be trite and overused, though it's a put-down not often heard in the halls of progressive Austin...."
"...Amparo Garcia Crow describes the end of her relationship like this: "When you're young and in love, never been kissed, you fall in love with love, the idealism of it. But after you've broken up a few times, gotten a divorce, the alimony woes, your kids are now old enough, they're criticizing you, they've got opinions, they're like, 'You're a terrible mom!' -- after you've done all that, then you're thinking, I'm never getting married again!"..."
"...Under a Western Sky, Amparo Garcia Crow..."
"...Late one sweltering Friday afternoon about six weeks ago, the residents of River Woods apartments, a converted 1950s-era motel situated smack-dab in the middle of the South Congress "revitalization zone," came home from work to find this ominous notice taped on their doors: "The Riverwood [sic] Apartments are scheduled for demolition on September 13, 1999. At midnight on September 13, 1999, all utilities and services to the Riverwood Apartments will be discontinued -- It is extremely urgent that you begin to seek alternate housing arrangements immediately." The letter was signed by Jana Ellis, district manager for the residential services division of Trammel Crow, which is planning a 256-unit luxury apartment complex for the site..."
"...When he's in town, that is. Generally, he's on the road, backing Sheryl Crow, Mumford & Sons, or contributing to combustible blues-rock juggernaut the Tedeschi Trucks Band, which has kept him living out of suitcases since 2015...."
"...No doubt his UT graduate degree in merchandising comes in handy when studying voter demographics, but Hernandez also has an uncanny knack for writing brochures and designing the look of campaigns. "Almost every logo you see out on the street, we've had a hand in," crows Hernandez, who has a finger in each of the council race pies this time around..."
"...Teatro Humanidad, the company that spawned Petra's Pecado, Watsonville: Some Place Not Here, and the Latino Comedy Project, has a new artistic director. Filling the shoes of Founding Director Rodney Garza, who resigned the position to pursue more opportunities as an actor, is Amparo García Crow, the actor, director, teacher, playwright, and longtime member of the Austin theatre community known for her work with Big State Productions, Zachary Scott, Mary Moody Northen Theatre, and currently, the UT Department of Theatre & Dance..."
"...ROUGH MAGIC D: Clare Peploe; with Bridget Fonda, Russell Crow...."
"...What it does do is tell a familiar story in a fairly fresh and definitely humorous way, thanks to co-screenwriters Jason Katims and Reeves. An eclectic soundtrack featuring Al Green, Sheryl Crow, Herbie Hancock, and Neil Young rounds out a number of scenes, and the lack of a pat ending makes The Pallbearer a fun and somewhat surprising romantic comedy...."
