"...So, what do James McMurtry, Terry Allen, Guy Clark, Peter Rowan, Bad Livers, and the Austin Lounge Lizards have in common? Well, since the Lizards signed a little ol' record contract, the answer is that they all record for Sugar Hill Records. The Lounge Lizards have finished work on their first album for the label, Employee of the Month, and are looking at a release date of February 17..."
"...At the Congress Ave. State Theatre, the Women in Jazz Concert Series runs both Friday and Saturday (see "Recommended"), while Stubb's hosts all those flatland folks (you know, Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Terry Allen, Lucinda Williams, Jo Carol Pierce, and many more) raising money for a statue of, you guessed it, C.B..."
"...(The label also reissued his first album, 1984's No Kinda Dancer, in 1995.) What you will find on all six albums are songs that catch like flypaper, songs that blend a mix of exuberance and loneliness as fundamental to Texans as the words `y'all' and `fixin' to.' And in Texas, the only state that matters, his potent live shows are second only to Willie Nelson's for inspiring native pride and shitkicking zeal. Keen may be the only man alive who can set frat boys stomping and hollering to a Terry Allen song..."
"...That's a good day to shop at the 'loo, because they're giving 10% of their Friday profits to the Capital Area Food Bank... Other albums out now or due soon: Terry Allen's Smokin' the Dummy/Bloodlines double reissue (out now), Velvet Hammer's Storybook (out this week), Marcia Ball's Let Me Play With Your Poodle (due 6/24), and Jon Dee Graham's Escape From Monster Island (out July 1)....."

"..."Talk to anybody at any label," says Rubin. "When you talk about new acoustic music and bluegrass music and progressive bluegrass music, there is not a finer label working!" Also in Sugar Hill's favor is the fact that the label has, over time, signed some of the Lone Star state's finer, edgier singer-songwriters, including Terry Allen, James McMurtry, and the late Townes Van Zandt...."
"...Hell, great country music is a given here -- as are singer-songwriters. Thus, Terry Allen's Human Remains, Lyle Lovett's The Road to Ensenada, Alejandro Escovedo's With These Hands, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore's Braver Newer World were all the work of seasoned masters..."
"...4. Terry Allen, Human Remains (Sugar Hill)..."

"...There are a lot of similarities, but I see all the institutions as having gone through a lot of change, too, in the last 10 years. The challenge for me is learning who the institutions are now and not assuming they are who they used to be...."
"...The film company and Reno both are baffled as to where this story came from, and Reno says that "Robert's a friend [but] there's no deal in the works or anything like that." Reno has appeared in films and on television before, notably as a band leader in Rodriguez' Roadracers, but insists he has got no film work coming up in the near future and that the project referred to in the posting, Hang Time, doesn't even exist. Reno adds that he's not surprised that the item appeared on Isaak's site, as he understands that it "attracts a lot of the fringe element." If you get up to Dallas, you can see Reno playing at the Terry Allen-designed Red Jacket on Thursdays..."
"...Omar & the Howlers have an in-store at Waterloo records Friday at 5pm and a release party show for World Wide Open at Antone's on Saturday... Terry Allen's Human Remains is out on Sugar Hill and features guest appearances by David Byrne and more Austin luminaries than you can count..."
"...None other than David Byrne, ex-Talking Head and renegade former Subgenius, hopped up and performed with the band. Byrne, it turns out, was in town helping Terry Allen out by lending his musical talents to his new album....."
"...At his best - the opening one-two punch of "Core" and "Grab" - Garza juggles both facets superbly. And even when he only concentrates on one lesson, he's a smooth enough balladeer and quirky enough rocker to pull off a genre-jumper that might not be entirely cohesive, but is something far more - part and parcel of his first consistently challenging record...."
"...Directed by: David Mamet. Starring: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Emily Mortimer, Alice Braga, Tim Allen, Max Martini, Rodrigo Santoro, Ricky Jay, Joe Mantegna, Rebecca Pidgeon, David Paymer, Ray Mancini and John Machado..."
"...Based on the book of the same title by renowned childrenÕs author Chris Van Allsburg, the movie follows the adventures of four players of the board game, Jumanji, a magical, slightly malevolent test of grit and tenacity. The very first roll of the dice unleashes the gameÕs power to conjure up animals, people, and forces of nature to challenge the players..."
"..."Well, it's kind of a mixture," says pianist Geri Allen about her compositions and style of play, a fairly dazzling modern mixture of free-flowing funk, blues, hard-bop, and jazz classicism that comes to fruition on her new Verve release, The Gathering. "Jazz is the launch pad..."
