The Blanton Museum of Art
"...After studying art and architecture at Texas Tech, he fell in with Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Tommy Hancock, Terry Allen, Butch Hancock, and bandleader Joe Ely, whose group he joined in the late Seventies and toured the world. In 1980, Bone moved to ATX, where his soulful voice led Ponty Bone & the Squeezetones..."
"...Lord of the Highway and AMA Hall of Famer Joe Ely made a bonfire of his road maps, a spark famously lit when he picked up a record-packing hitchhiker named Townes Van Zandt. Only appropriate, then, that Ely follows fellow West Texas iconoclast Terry Allen in receiving the second Townes Van Zandt songwriting award, celebrating a half-century of carving his own distinct brand of Texas-twanged rock & roll..."
"...We had rented a house on Cape Cod but only had a couple of days to open it before we were off to Ohio for Sandy to shoot some footage for her documentary on the Church of the SubGenius. Then on to Marfa for Jo Harvey and Terry Allen's 55th wedding anniversary: "It's amazing how long two people can misunderstand one another." [inset-1-right]..."
"...Thus, what was then dubbed Flatbed World Headquarters was as much an arts community space as a new home for the printmakers. (It currently houses Gallery Shoal Creek, CAMIBAart, Photo Méthode Gallery, Austin Book Arts Center, 26 Keys Inc., and six artist studios.) The venue can be seen as one more bold Flatbed experiment, and one that's succeeded as richly as its extraordinary prints, created with artists that include Robert Rauschenberg, Terry Allen, Julie Speed, Keith Carter, Melissa Miller, Luis Jiménez, and Michael Ray Charles..."
"..."He was so multi-layered," says the guitarist. "Without being pretentious, he could sit down with Terry Allen and talk about what artists he loved, or talk about poetry..."
"...Darden Smith's new record is beautiful. Terry Allen, Kelly Willis, the documentary about Mark Hallman and Congress House, John Doe, Hayes Carll, Mike Flanigin, J.J..."
"...Lone Star song whisperers (octogenarians Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson), their inheritors (septuagenarians Terry Allen, Butch Hancock, Billy Joe Shaver), and great grand inheritors (sexagenarians Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen) left a palpable void for the half-century set: Slaid Cleaves, Bruce Robison, Darden Smith. Out of the lot, the longtime local latter from the East Texas town of Brenham still falls between the singer-songwriter cracks..."
"...“Don’t be intimidated,” challenges Kerr to the crowd. “We’re not.”..."
"...We nabbed some of the best Texans ever to emerge from the Lone Star State for a Moody Theater blowout Sunday, March 12. Masterful panhandle poet Terry Allen, who recently put on a mind-blowing performance at the Paramount Theatre, receives a new accolade honoring excellence in song: the Townes Van Zandt Award..."
"...Their take on Roky Erickson's "I Have Always Been Here Before" would've fit right in on the 1990 Erickson tribute, Where the Pyramid Meets the Eye. The EP's strongest suit lies in reconciling Willie Nelson's "Night Life" and Terry Allen's "I Just Left Myself Today" with a rage bomb like the Dicks' "Dead in a Motel Room." A six-minute immolation of Doug Sahm's "At the Crossroads" makes an appropriate fin de siècle for one of Austin's most irrepressible musical characters...."
"...Flatbed Press at 25 shows how the printmaking facility has pulled off that astonishing trick for a quarter of a century. Brimberry and Smith selected 36 artists to serve as case studies for the Flatbed process, introducing each with text providing background on the artist as well as the challenges thrown at Flatbed's team by each and how the printers met them with a blend of creative ingenuity and technical expertise..."
"...Terry Allen (12/19/03)..."
"...Standing ovation. Lucinda Williams’ blues cry “Howlin’ at Midnight” and Terry Allen’s congregational kick in the pants, “Gimme a Ride to Heaven,” barreled like a freight train bound for glory ahead of a two-song encore in Hancock’s elegiac “If You Were a Bluebird” and raucous Flatlanders’ walk-off favorite, clanging/twanging/banging roots ancient “Sitting on Top of the World.”..."
"...Mauldin, Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, Bryn Merrick, Leonard Nimoy, Sean Price, John Renbourn, Slim Richey, Cynthia Robinson, Chris Squire, P.F. Sloan, Percy Sledge, T Bird & the Breaks, Dallas Taylor, Phil Taylor, Clark Terry, Allen Toussaint, Scott Weiland, Reverend Gean West, Thom Wilson..."
"...Alongside his producer and champion Brian Beattie, he accumulates quite the cast of local characters to bring his songs to life, including Sahara Smith, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Dana Falconberry, Grace London, Craig Ross, and Dony Wynn. He delivers stories with the same wry affectation as James McMurtry, yet his songs bear the poetic artistry of Terry Allen..."
"...Terry Allen kicked out “I’m Not that Kat Anymore” on keys, and Australian duo Luluc testified to Sahm’s international influence with “Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day.” Bill Kirchen and the West Side Horns established a mid-set musical groove before Cajun rocker C.C. Adcock dropped “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights” and the Iguanas rolled Tex-Mex with “Nitty Gritty.” Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez burned a dark and bluesy “Hey Baby Que Paso” with his Del Castillo offshoot Chingon...."
"...8:25 Terry Allen..."
"...There are also hyper local events like our Austin Music Awards – tonight, Wed., 7:55pm, at the Convention Center's Austin Ballroom – featuring the cream of the local scene: Gary Clark Jr., Patty Griffin, Billy Joe Shaver, Shakey Graves, Gina Chavez, Charlie Sexton. And Austin's old school is throwing a Doug Sahm wing-ding (Sat., Paramount Theatre, 7:30pm), stacked with Texas talent: Steve Earle, Terry Allen, Texas Tornados, even local film director Robert Rodriguez & Chingon. 5 Austin Zip Codes..."
"...Doug Sahm's "Groover's Paradise" doubles as the Paramount Theatre on Sat., March 21, for a musical celebration of Central Texas' greatest genre blender (1941-1999). The concert, spurred by Joe Nick Patoski's documentary Sir Doug & the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove, which premieres at SXSW Film on Thu., March 19, includes a full reunion of Marcia Ball's Freda & the Firedogs, Steve Earle, Terry Allen, Hole in the Wall gang the Bizarros, Patricia Vonne, Roy Head, Robert Rodriguez's Chingon, the Texas Tornados, and many more...."
"...Marcia Ball’s cosmic Freda & the Firedogs, Steve Earle, Roy Head, Sahm’s beloved Westside Horns and Texas Tornados, Terry Allen, Robert Rodriguez, New Orleans’ Iguanas – the poster goes on and on. A gathering of tribes they call it..."
