A Room With a View
Steve Wertheimer prepares to open a second Continental Club -- in Houston.
Music Story  May 26, 2000, by Christopher Gray
"..."It basically feels like a grown-up version of what's in Austin." Steve Wertheimer is standing on the debris-strewn platform that in a few weeks -- knock on plywood -- will host the likes of Mojo Nixon, Jon Dee Graham, Jimmie Vaughan, and maybe even the Jayhawks. It's soon to be the stage of the Houston Continental Club, which, provided all goes according to plan, will bring a touch of South Congress to the nation's fourth-largest city. With 50-foot ceilings, 4,300 square feet, 25 tons of air conditioning, and a 28-foot bar, the building at 3700 Main certainly has the potential to be a nightclub emporium the likes of which Wertheimer's beloved Austin establishment only hints at..."

Austin soldiers on beyond SXSW with hot rods, SPAM, and puking
Music Column  March 28, 2003, by Christopher Gray
"...If there's anything Continental Club owner Steve Wertheimer likes better than Toni Price or Jon Dee Graham, it's tricked-out, custom-built hot rods. He can often be seen cruising to and from the South Congress venue in his ground-hugging "Black Dahlia," and this weekend Wertheimer and his compadres in the Kontinentals car club are once again hosting the Lonestar Rod & Kustom Round Up..."

Maintaining the World's Most Expensive Record Collections
Austin's Small Label Scene
Music Story  September 15, 1995
"...Usually, a friend of a band sees his pals struggling unsuccessfully to scratch the itch to make a record, and finds himself volunteering to issue the slab himself. Undone's Christian Caperton was a Sound Exchange employee caught up in the excitement of co-workers Craig Koon and Roger Morgan launching their respective Rise and Unclean imprints, and inaugurated Undone with johnboy's initial 45, "Calyx." The Continental Club's Steve Wertheimer used the Naughty Ones as an excuse to initiate Continental Records..."

The dimly lit club, which will specialize in soul, blues, and R&B, features an upstairs lounge, back deck, and a tinsel-backdropped stage for weekend entertainment..."

Music Column  July 27, 2001, by Ken Lieck
"...As intimated in Stephen Moser's fashion column last week (of all places!), there's a good chance that playing the Continental Club may soon net you a much larger audience than can fit into the beloved South Congress venue itself. As stated therein, Die Krupps founder Juergen Engler, currently of DKay.com, owns the old recording studio next to the club, and this week, Continental owner Steve Wertheimer confirmed he's interested in the idea of opening up the wall between the venue and the studio to produce live recordings from his club..."

California's Smoking Ban... Coming to a Club Near You?
Music Story  February 13, 1998, by Michael Bertin
"...Based on the figures from those nights, Continental owner Steve Wertheimer corroborates Luneberg's stated correlation between drinking and smoking. "It's been my experience in the past that when we've done smoking and non-smoking shows that the ring is bigger on the smoking shows," says Wertheimer, adding, "I'm talking $1,000 to $1,500 difference between what the first group imbibes versus what the second group does."..."

Rock and a Hard Place
Balancing the Austin Music Ledger
Music Story  December 1, 1995
"...While it's important to note they are the exception, and that they both admit their technique is based more on emotion than smart finance, it's interesting that the two clubs most often cited by musicians as the most consistently cooperative and straightforward payers in town, the Continental and the Hole in the Wall, both feature untraditional payment methods that often lead to dipping into bar sales. So although bands at the Continental work for the door, the bands and owner Steve Wertheimer say the club believes in its bands' drawing power so strongly it's not in the business of sending bands home with dismal payouts...."
