Come & Take It Live
"...Bar eavesdroppers might have gotten an earful back in September when Bonnie Bishop recounted her music industry version of "I quit." The conversation had all of the hallmarks of a 100-proof confession you only share with strangers. Two UT grads at a near-empty Threadgill's World Headquarters, sipping margaritas and wondering how the hell the Longhorns – playing on the screen mounted in front of them – could be losing to Cal for the second year in a row, deepened their dialogue commensurate to their consumption of tequila...."
"...Americana music is so dominated by men that last night’s Austin City Limits taping featuring Bonnie Raitt and Mavis Staples was as refreshing as it was celebratory. The range of styles and deep-seated emotions made it memorable, but also demonstrated why both women have been revered for so long...."
"...Bonnie Cullum of The Vortex: The world did not end, but it is changing. Now is the time of great opportunity to transform the way that we relate to one another and the planet..."
"..."In my mind, the promise of a place where that won't ever happen is the ideal record store experience. That would be a destination for me." But Why Bonnie?..."
"...Last Labor Day weekend at the Pedernales Recording Studio, Whitlock overdubbed finishing touches to "Got To Get Better in a Little While," from Derek & the Dominos' aborted second LP and now residing on March's deluxe Layla reissue. In his new memoir, A Rock 'n' Roll Autobiography (see review), the local legend remembers the Dominos' precursors, Delaney & Bonnie, whose frontman was later married to CoCo Carmel..."
"...Why BonnieBarracuda, Sat. 5 Why Bonnie's pearly dream-rock teeters between gauzy simplicity and the shadowy ache of plunging into the darkest parts of yourself..."
"...Director-screenwriter Araki taps into something very primal in the film's depiction of its two opposites that attract - the sedate Jon, a writer who lives his life according to the rules until he tests positive, and the seductive Luke, a hustler who takes him on an existential joyride that presses the envelope of so-called rational behavior. All comparisons to Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma & Louise aside, these lovers are thrown together by freak circumstance and divine providence: their seropositivity and what it might mean for them in the future..."
"...“You're not even old enough to know how bad life gets.” To which Cecilia flatly responds, “Obviously, doctor, you've never been a 13-year-old girl.” At the root of this shimmering, confident debut from director Sofia Coppola is a profound sympathy for what it means to be an adolescent - the unspeakable pain and forbidden lust, the mystery and morbidity of it all. The Virgin Suicides follows a year in the short lives of the blond, toothsome, and impossibly complicated Lisbon sisters --Cecilia, the youngest, is followed by Lux, then Bonnie, Mary, and the eldest Therese (I'm not giving away anything to say that their lives end sadly; much like American Beauty, their fate is sealed at the film's outset)..."
"...Dancer-choreographer Bonnie Cox and I are trying, over the phone, to define "psychological trauma." "I see it as a spectrum," she says. Physical abuse and rape are discrete traumatic events, while psychological abuse and negative body image – any "experience or pressure that has taken a toll on the person," she suggests – result, over time, in a trauma not unlike post-traumatic stress disorder..."
"...Team building punks Big Bill gather a whopping, 13-fold gaggle of Austin music goodies. The wacky organizers front the whole shebang, which includes Why Bonnie’s bedroom pop, Très Oui’s determined dreamscapes, Leather Girls’ garage scuzz, the Reputations’ snarly soul, and Zoltars’ smartypants psych..."
"...Initially the bedroom recording project of Blair Howerton, local fourpiece Why Bonnie now pulls back the covers and squints into the outside world. In Water floats a sleek, dream-pop EP tinged by lingering melancholy, which quivers around the glaze of its bright, glittering sound..."
"...Annabelle Chairlegs, Deep Time, Caroline Says, Why Bonnie?, Robby Sat., Jan. 6, 9pm, Hotel Vegas..."
"...Why Bonnie, Nightgown (Sports Day)"Invites you to quiet your thoughts, shed your stress, and immerse yourself in the infectious sounds. Perfect for dancing around a sunlit room."..."
"...In March, the Vortex – yes, the home to all those ritual-theatre spectacles and homegrown musicals about fairy-tale heroines, goddesses, and elementals – obtained a liquor license for its in-house lounge, the Butterfly Bar, and now you can sip a mojito or martini with your next cyberopera. Theatre founder and Producing Artistic Director Bonnie Cullum has been working toward this for several years, steadily upgrading what was originally a bare-bones lobby area into a cozy venue for enjoying libations..."
"...There was the Western carnival for the Rude Mechs' I've Never Been So Happy, with dozens of folks each night indulging their inner Ernest Tubbs at the country karaoke mic, getting their mops cropped by a bona fide Lone Star barber, having their "pitchers took" as Bonnie and Clyde, making crank calls to Yankees, and sipping margaritas, among other activities...."
"...Directed by: Doug Ellin. Starring: David Schwimmer, Jason Lee, Mili Avital, Bonnie Hunt, Vanessa Angel and Kari Wuhrer..."
