"...Meanwhile, a strong local element to RSD continues thriving. Austin’s the only city we know of that puts on a simultaneous Record Store Day Crawl that encourages people to shop all ATX vinyl emporiums by offering them a 10% discount if they have a receipt from another store..."
"...Rainey-Deer Holiday Crawl December 16th Meeting Spot: The Bungalow Bar..."
"...It's free, but raffles – including one for a signed Jimmie Vaughan Fender Strat – fill the coffers. Consider it a preview of Stout's Eastside Kings Fest, a 12th Street club crawl honoring the progenitors of Austin blues, on Sept..."
"...Queer Zombies Pub Crawl We know some of you take the "crawl" part of pub crawls very seriously, so plan ahead. This is a fundraiser for PFLAG, for gosh sake, so behave..."
"...Hence Guantanamo Baywatch, a feral trio that plays blown-out surf-punk with the tremolo riptide of Dick Dale and the Cramps' B-movie sleaze. 2012 debut Chest Crawl is an instant party LP, but Surf N Turf, a recent split EP with Natural Child, proves the band's equally capable of bleary-eyed ballads..."
"...Crawl past the restrictions of a super-low-budget production from quasi-pros, and this is a real surprise. Of these three recent creations, it's arguably the one that would give Murnau most pleasure...."
"...Recalling the Chronicle’s own Dead Club Crawl, each episode pairs an aural history, provided by a venue representative, with a live performance by the scene's local (albeit questionable) successors, like the Brothers & Sisters’ cosmic country filling the parking lot of what once was the Armadillo World Headquarters as former proprietor Eddie Wilson looks on. While not incredibly detailed, it's a thought-provoking snapshot of this city's "development" and works well as a crash course music tutorial..."
"...21) at the Paramount Theatre, had a rapt audience for their brief tutorial that concluded with a stark rendition of Ingram's "Seeing Stars." Grounded in Music, which was founded in the summer of 2007 and has become the signature music program for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area, helps provide instruments and training to kids and hosts 10-week courses on hip-hop, songwriting, and studio production. "Our real mission is not necessarily to crank out the next big thing," says co-founder Joe Stallone, who hopes to expand the program to other cities, "but to provide that initial spark for these underprivileged kids to turn to music." For an interview with Griffin, see austinchronicle.com/earache. Dead Club Crawl..."
"...New Club Crawl, Part 2..."
"...Fellow New York foursome Crystal Stilts' debut, Alight of Night, detunes and distorts behind big 1960s girl-group beats. The night's rounded out by the sugar pop of Cause Co-Motion!, the mellow quirk of Woods, the lo-fi crawl of Air Waves, and the cats and rats of local trio YellowFever, which purrs like a Slumberland band from 1991..."
"...Not to sound like a brown-noser, but when it comes to keeping in the know, the Chronicle is still the favorite for any local live music lover to go and find out what's going on and where. Yes, in this regard, the "old-fashioned" rag keeps pace with more tech savvy folks who may be pulling up the same info on their tech toys on- the-go (possibly pulling up the Chron listings?) And isn't it curious that almost any time of the day or night, if you flip over to ME Television, the crawl will be club listings -- culled from the Austin Chronicle?..."
"...The payoff comes in a song like "Swallows of San Juan," a latter-day "Surf's Up." The surfers "crawl up on the shore, roll in the mud and the clay," and behind them the surf is "breaking bigger and harder than anyone's ever seen." It's a song about going back, except you can't. You can't stop trying either...."
"...12mid, Maggie Mae's Giselle Webber has a voice as ferocious as it is precious, and on Montreal quartet Hot Springs' debut LP, Volcano (Quire), she lets loose. Less pickled than Grace Slick, Webber runs her intense vibrato hot and cold, and she's not afraid to freak out, crawl around, howl in the mic, and gyrate..."
"...The Back Room's new matching $5,000 (each) Intellibeams creep and crawl around the wall and ceilings and over the crowd, like a police helicopter searching for a fleeing fugitive, or perhaps the skylight at a red carpet soiree. It feels a lot like that tonight...."
"...It was a beautiful thing, watching people turn out in droves to watch all these great local bands, but it's worth pointing out that their shows rarely cost more than five bucks anyway. Now, if you'll excuse "TCB," he's going to crawl under a rock for a very, very, very long nap..."
"...TRAILER BRIDE: Don't take Melissa Swingle's weary warble for apathy. Chapel Hill's Trailer Bride is one of Bloodshot's stranger acts: bits of country, bluegrass, and a creepy crawl through the pine trees to where ghosts reside..."
"...I use the pre-dawn hours to drink coffee, get caught up on cable news, and generally jump-start my nervous system. Two days before Christmas, a God-awful storm was beating Austin, and as I tried getting my brain in focus, I glanced up and saw the Fox News crawl move across the bottom of my TV screen, "Punk Singer Joe Strummer Dead at 50." Surely that couldn't be right; I waited 10 minutes for the headline to cycle back through again, and when it did, I sent off an early-morning e-mail that read, "Joe Strummer Dead," not knowing what else to say..."
"...Club Crawl 'Til You Die..."
"...The Jesus on the crucifix stares wide-eyed and baffled at the behavior of humanity. Ants crawl in his eye sockets..."
