"Carl Block: Odd Pottery"
Block's ceramic monster-faced jugs with crooked teeth and varminty eyes are indeed odd but also colorful and delightful
Arts Review  December 28, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Sometimes, when you want a piece of artwork to advance the goal of keeping your own meager portion of Austin weird, your best bet might be to go to Waxahachie to get it. Except when Waxahachie conveniently comes to you – as with this new "Odd Pottery" exhibition by Carl Block...."

Native Texans
Arts Story  October 11, 1996
"...If you've only seen Bob "Daddy-O" Wade's well-known work -- giant dancing frogs, huge screaming iguanas -- you might be surprised to learn that he was formally trained to paint in the traditional Renaissance style. But one look at his work in this collection and you'll be able to see Wade's education at work. The paintings are clearly the work of an eccentric artist, but it takes a well-trained eccentric artist to create a blown-up, hand-painted photo of smiling cowgirls from the Thirties...."

Mike Egan: The Death of 1977
Egan's stunning, simple graphic images of skulls bring Yard Dog to life
Arts Review  September 30, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...This Egan show's got the spotlight right now, but it fits perfectly, comfortably part of the whole, in the well-stocked South Congress hall of American folk art treasure that is Yard Dog. To which emporium we'd recommend a visit soon, because life, as they say, is short, while art remains as long as ever..."

Tom Russell's Sound and Vision
DAILY Music  February 14, 2008, by Doug Freeman
"...Americana pioneer Tom Russell may be most widely known for his songwriting, which includes such classics as “Gallo del Cielo” and “Spanish Burgundy,” but his artistry spans across media. In addition to recording more than 20 albums, Russell has published a detective novel and a book of letters with poet Charles Bukowski, and is currently completing a documentary about his sister-in-law that will serve as the third installment of his "Americana Trilogy." He's also an avid painter, and when he comes through Austin tomorrow to play the Cactus Café, he'll visit the Yard Dog Gallery on South Congress for the opening exhibition of his latest folk art..."

The Saturday Is Bright and Not Filled With Terrors
And here's a plethora of recommendations for you
DAILY Arts  May 4, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...In fact, there's Todd Reynolds & the Golden Hornet Project doing something sonically strange and compelling near MoPac and Lake Austin Boulevard even before it's noon on Saturday. We're also going to point you again to this. Because if there's one sweet respite from the heat and the driving-around-town, it's a brief (and Topo Chico-spiked) sojourn in the home of some local writer. And Saturday is also Free Comic Book Day, wherein you can snag a plethora – ah, that word again – of paper-based sequential-art goodness at any of the several comic book shops around the ATX. And, later that day, edging into the night, where it may very well be dark and full of terrors (like, at the least, drunk college students hurling their semi-digested meals onto your formerly favorite stretch of sidewalk) … later that day, we say, it's a veritable visual-arts wonderland, with the Springboard: Deep East Austin Studio Crawl … Co-Lab's Teenage Wasteland … Lindsey Kuhn at the South Austin Popular Culture Center … and Camp Bosworth's 'Los Narcos' show at Yard Dog Folk Art. Oh, hey – there's also something called the Pecan Street Art Festival happening Downtown, we hear..."

Danny Crooks, down with the ship once again
Music Column  September 20, 2002, by Ken Lieck
"...So far, the switchover, which had not been completed at press time, has been astonishingly smooth -- with the notable exception of one Steamboat shareholder, who expressed concern about the proposed change of ownership. (Said shareholder, had given Crooks $75,000 in order for him to own the Steamboat moniker after the club closed down its Sixth Street location.) For his part, Oveisi says he's insisting that Crooks continues to make his presence known around the club as much as his health will allow..."

"...Our cabdriver is mortified that he's never heard of us but says that he had Sufjan Stevens in the back of his cab this morning and he got his guitar out and previewed a whole bunch of new material! Wow! Only in Austin, eh!? The floor of the cab is thick with fractured demo CDs, party invites, and vomit...."

Music Story  March 25, 1999
