Texas Book Festival: 'Station Eleven'
Emily St. Mandel's apocalyptic novel reviewed
DAILY Arts  October 24, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...In novels, films, and on television, storytellers can’t invent new grisly ends for humanity fast enough. Our ongoing obsession with post-apocalypse fiction isn’t going away (just ask the record-breaking 17.3 million viewers who fed on last week’s The Walking Dead season premiere); all we can hope for are superior spins of the wheel, as is the case with this newly minted National Book Award finalist...."

SXSW Film and IFC Film team up for a unique twin-platform release of Joe Swanberg's new picture
DAILY Screens  January 21, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...Despite my plea to the ether that no filmic breaking news happen while I was on vacation, the ether went ahead and broke it anyway. Like yesterday's news that SXSW posterboy Joe Swanberg would world-premiere his latest, Alexander the Last, there in a unique twin-platform release with IFC Film's Festival Direct – meaning, as the curtain goes up on March 14 at a SXSW theatrical venue, Swanberg's film will be available on video-on-demand simultaneously..."

Texas Platters
Music Review  April 11, 1997
"...The more recent recordings from the Continental and the tour show off Mencher and Young at their most harmonious -- a lot can happen in eight years, not all of it bad. Shaun Young obviously wanted to turn a trick by himself on the solo album, and although he takes Smith along for comfort, he goes for a fuller sound than his normal three-piece, kicking it up with premiere drummer Lisa Pankrantz and Chris Miller on steel guitar, while adding sax and piano to the mix..."

Texas Preps for Its Close-up
Two fall shows bring it on home
Screens Story  September 17, 2010, by Belinda Acosta
"...However, if there is anything intrinsically Austin in this series, it was not evident in the pilot episode, screened for a small but enthusiastic audience at the Paramount Theatre in mid-August. But does it have enough oomph to be noticed beyond Austin – and especially in the thick of premiere week? Final verdict: Being set in Austin doesn't help or hurt this prime-time soap..."

Legends of Texas Letters Reflect on 'The Gay Place'
ACC's Carnival ah! hosts a Billy Lee Brammer retrospective
DAILY Books  March 31, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...The panel kicks off with the premiere screening of "The Flea Circus," a short film based on an excerpt from The Gay Place, directed and produced by his daughters Shelby and Sidney Brammer. Next up is a panel discussion, and if you know the first thing about Texas letters, you know the lineup is an impressive one: Longtime Texas Monthly columnist (and one of Brammer's Mad Dog pals) Gary Cartwright; Brammer's first wife, Nadine Eckhardt, whose memoir Duchess of Palms was just published by UT Press; legendary curmudgeon Don Graham, who's perhaps the leading authority on Texas literature; Kaye Northcott, former editor of The Texas Observer; Texas Monthly senior editor Jan Reid (The Bullet Meant for Me); and former state legislator A.R..."

Texas Choral Consort
Double-barreled Requiem concert brings back Brahms and resurrects more Undead Mozart
Arts Story  August 16, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...Credit much of that to the concert's centerpiece: the massive, majestic A German Requiem of Johannes Brahms, which breaks with tradition by speaking not to the Lord on behalf of the dearly departed but to those left behind, comforting them in their grief. There's also the bill's premiere of a Requiem movement by a composer who's still very much alive – indeed, who just recently became the youngest winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music..."

2006 Texas Film Hall of Fame
Screens Story  March 17, 2006
"..."You'll find copies of the Kyoto Treaty under your chairs," quipped Texas Monthly Editor Evan Smith at the start of the sixth Texas Film Hall of Fame induction ceremony, a nod to Friday night's unseasonable swelter. If anything, the sultry conditions inside the Austin Studios soundstage seemed to loosen purse strings, among other things; what followed was possibly the longest benefit auction on record, with well-heeled film patrons, egged on by auctioneer and radio personality Bob Cole, jostling to outdo one another in the bidding over Marfa getaway weekends and A Scanner Darkly premiere trips..."

Texas Platters
Music Review  September 11, 1998
"...The Edwin Livingston Group In his first recording as session leader, Edwin Livingston, one of Austin's premiere jazz bassists, has reached out for a sound all his own, and with the help of four original compositions and one extended improvisation, he's pushed the envelope a bit. The bass solo in the first tune, "AKA Fiddy Jones," is all over the place, taking high thin to reverbing lows, Livingston hitting quick eighths and sixteenths at all points in between as if he had three hands..."

Texas Piano Professors
Music Story  September 15, 1995
"...On Friday, "Rock My Plimsoul" Peter Case brings the largely acoustic sounds of his wonderful new Vanguard release, Torn Again, to the Cactus, reminding us that Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar aren't the only songwriters with country twangs and contemporary takes on folk & roll. Saturday, Watermelon celebrates the release of Eric Taylor's eponymous debut on their label, and the Houston songwriter celebrates a couple of decades of craft that has influenced the likes of Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith. Whip out the acoustics, boys.

The Way Home
Zach Theatre gives Robert Schenkkan's All the Way its Texas premiere on LBJ's home turf
Arts Story  April 9, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...As Steakley has been working on All the Way's Texas premiere, he's become quite conscious of Johnson's many personalities, echoing Updegrove that "everyone has a different perception of who Johnson was because he was a master of transformation based on whomever he was dealing with." Steve Vinovich, who was Cranston's understudy but is only now getting to step into Lyndon's boots, was told by former Johnson aide Bill Moyers that "LBJ was 13 of the most interesting people he ever met." That makes Johnson "a remarkable character to play," says Steakley. "We hope we've captured the essence of the man through all of the interviews and research and footage and recordings we have been poring over for months..."
