"...Camelot didn’t die with the Kennedys. Saturday at the 101-year-old Paramount Theatre, Terry Allen, Jo Harvey Allen, and their sons Bukka and Bale – plus at least one grandkid – held court like The Last Waltz..."
"...Terry Allen’s new album, Bottom of the World Comes, arrives 14 years after his last disc. He hasn’t been sitting on his hands all that time, either..."
"...I n an interview following the 2013 release Bottom of the World, Terry Allen told the Chronicle, "Visual art, theatre, and music are all pretty much one thing for me. Focusing on one can bring a whole clutch of the others..."
"...Juarez (1975): Allen's first album. Includes: "Cantina Carlotta," "There Oughta Be a Law Against Sunny Southern California." Originally issued on Fate Records..."
"...And Human Remains is definitely right. "Gone to Texas" is, after an 18-year wait, the followup to "Amarillo Highway," vintage Allen trying to explain the mystique of Texas highways and open spaces, before he finally gives up and decides that if you don't get it, you're either a "Yankee" or a "critic." And his duets with Lucinda Williams are an unexpected but extremely welcome combination that hopefully will be repeated often..."
"...Dear Editor, We, the undersigned current and former elected leaders of ACC employee organizations, commend the Chronicle's endorsement [May 5] of Allen Kaplan for re-election to the ACC board. The accusations against him quoted in a “Postmarks” letter [May 5] last week stem from misrepresentations by ACC's mercifully departed President Richard Fonte, who used them as part of a campaign to keep college employees from expressing their opinions to the board and to keep the board from evaluating him for his poor performance..."

"...It's a taut drama set primarily within the confines of two apartments in the same urban building complex and keeps the viewer guessing until the end regarding the reliability of its two central protagonists. The line separating civic duty from vigilantism is constantly shifting and challenging our allegiances to these characters..."
"...Typical Lubbock-style wit. You hear it from farmers, cooks, cowboys, and especially from the town's artists – musicmakers such as Terry and Jo Harvey Allen, Butch Hancock, Jo Carol Pierce, Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Spider Johnson, John Reed, Tommy X..."
"...Joe Ely presents the Townes Van Zandt award to Terry Allen..."
"..."Been in the dark/ All of my life/ Waiting for the Wake/ Of the Red Witch .../ Waiting for the Wake/ Of the Red Witch/ Waiting for the Wake/ Of the Red Witch" – I listen to this Terry Allen song over and over, surprised at all it evokes, and wondering why, at its end, he needs to repeat that phrase thrice...."

"...Directed by: Kevin Allen. Starring: Dougray Scott, Dorien Thomas, Rhys Ifans, Llyr Evans, Sue Roderick, Rachel Scorgie, Brian Hibbard, William Thomas and Jenny Evans..."
"...Worth, and in Dallas' South Oak Cliff appears to have been unremarkable, except for one episode that was formative in a literary sense. Hill tells the story of Southern's mother introducing him to the work of Edgar Allen Poe when he was in the fourth grade..."
