Butterfly Bar at the Vortex
"...•Austin Beerworks’ Flavor Country wins bronze in Australian-Style Pale Ale and they also received third place for their Super Awesome Lage in the Light Lager category...."
"...WK: Two bands that I feel are moving the music forward are Tank & the Bangas from New Orleans, a terrific combination of poetry and very sophisticated music, and the other would be the Dirty Projectors. They have their own take and style on music that’s very well done..."
"...All he can do is hope to warn enough people, and then run to get everyone he can out of collapsing buildings. And, no, there will not be any San Andreas-style theatrics..."
"...Accompanying Ollie is Nikolai (Sheehan), a Russian immigrant possessed of an outsized and ingratiating personality. The film’s prologue is packed with background about the fictitious Sway family history, although its jumble of visual styles and wealth of information may prove more disruptive than welcoming to viewers..."
"...It was also Pearce who designed the village itself, a rough-hewn settlement that was deliberately not supposed to be of one specific style. Evans said, "We didn't want it to feel purely British, so there's that American Gothic feel, houses on stilts, houses we can get under." That reflects the community, who were driven there by desperation and religious ecstasy, not because of a desire to be pioneers..."
"...How I Hope to Die, a tripartite piece, fills a wall with the artist's preferences for her final exit in pop-up-style patterned paper and pom-poms. "Alone if possible." "Quick and quiet." "With my mouth shut tight." The words are sprawled in painstakingly push-pinned black pom-poms..."
"...L: There’s a slight difference. In practice, I’m refining my style and technique with the instruments and voice – breathing, using imagery..."
"...But he can only do so much, especially with so many baffling decisions – interchangeable supporting nuns, inexplicable accent choices, painfully laugh-resistant jokes delivered by dashing village handyman Frenchie (Bloquet), and a denouement that peddles in medieval-style Catholicism as a bundle of superpowers and trinkets. At least Hardy seems to know that this is just a 90-minute fun house ride...."
"...Unfortunately, it’s not enough. Morel's parkour-driven 2004 film District B13 is often named as one of the best action movies of the young century, but none of that style is on display here..."
"...At this point, just strap in, because A Simple Favor's plot isn't just twisty: It's so labyrinthine that you expect a minotaur to pop up. With more red herrings and American Gothic hijinks than should be seemly in polite company, the murder-mystery influences are obvious in this homage/spoof of Gillian Flynn-style femmes fatale..."
"...51 Rainey #110 If heritage grains, fermentation, and seasonal ingredients are your jam, you’ve probably already discovered the wonder that is Emmer & Rye. Chef Kevin Fink weds a love of forgotten flavors with a Scandinavian ethos, culminating in American-style dim sum on Rainey Street. [image-1] Kebabalicious..."
"...The film is his homage to the classic, somewhat campy, sometimes menacing era of suburban murder mysteries, where dark secrets are revealed between widowed mommy vlogger Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) and the enigmatic Emily (Blake Lively). And, of course, there's that Hitchcock-style background appearance from Feig himself..."
"...In 1992, Canadian singer k.d. lang released her monumental breakthrough, Ingénue, a defining moment both in style and for its role in the LGBTQ rights movement..."
"...• Create a "pizza-tracker"-style feature (like one you see on Domino's website when you order a pizza) so complainants know the status of their case..."
"...Although September "budget readings" are officially scheduled for three days, prior to the 10-1 Council the occasion was mostly ceremonial, with the first day – even morning – serving to officially ratify decisions that had been incrementally made in the previous weeks. Although the debates over final details in both eras have often been similar, the change has been more than a question of style..."
"...McElhaney, Ken Featherston, Nels Jacobson, and Sam Yeates. “Known for his iconic laconic style of drawing, his work was unmistakable..."
"...Jack Sanders of Design Build Adventure designed the "I'm So Gonna Vote" sticker, which has popped up guerilla style around town and on social media...."
"...There are a couple of examples at this year’s festival to woo you, like Brazos Valley’s Greetings From Brenham and NXNW’s Brutylicous. But if you really insist on having that ancient relic of a beer style, this festival is still loaded with great NEIPA options, like Last Stand’s Fuzzieluscious, Hi Sign’s Hi-C, and Great Heights’ Fruity Pellets...."
"...["Laura Pressley Rocks On," News, Sept. 7] I couldn't find the site with the quote you cited – "In the 1940s … no one questioned the right to bear arms or to have paper ballots." Yes, she does seem to be channeling Bonnie Parker, who with her partner in small-time robbery and murder of innocent, usually low-income citizens, loved guns and could never get their hands on enough high-power military-style firearms..."
"...Hooper’s distinct style, drawing from Indonesian, Australasian, Japanese, tribal and Tibetan art, is inspired by the people of Austin in his work and how they make the city what it is. “My work draws its influences from many things the sanctum of nature and natural forms,” explains Hooper in his Rock of Ages website bio..."
"...Faraut culls most of his footage from Gil de Kermadec, who was tasked with filming the French Opens of the late Seventies and early Eighties for use as instructional videos. But de Kermadec became obsessed with McEnroe: his play style, his tantrums, his presence..."
"..."Cheese is a big part of what people experience Vino Vino as – a wine and cheese bar," said Ben Schwartz, executive chef at Vino Vino. For his selection process, he looks at milk type, aging process, style, weather, and geography, and tries to create a balance without alienating styles or palates..."
"...Easy Star All-Stars Sunday 9, Relix stage, 6:45pm Now 15 years in, this NYC troupe re-creates classic albums in vibey dub style: Radiodread, Lonely Hearts Dub Band, Thrillah. Their strongest send-up, 2003's gravity-defying Pink Floyd reinterpretation Dub Side of the Moon, gets Sunday's focus...."
"...After stays in Atlanta and Brooklyn, both etched into his R&B-infused rhymes, the hometown hero returns triumphant. Opener "Day 1 Freestyle," produced by ATX's own OVO rep Eric Dingus, twists Drake's signature "Run around town with my woes" into "Run around town with my ex," a nod to Jones first gaining notoriety at North by Northeast in Toronto..."
"...Inducted into the Austin Music Awards Hall of Fame in 2009, Hargrove employed a guttural, rootsy style of blues around Austin for nearly 60 years, thoroughly studied by Bill Campbell and the Vaughans, Jimmie and the late Stevie Ray...."
"...Moments that made you want to dance were as vast as those that made you want to squeeze your squeeze, as many did when he came out for an encore performance of “River.” Similar to his delivery of the Coming Home standout in 2015, Bridges, his guitar, and backup singer Brittni Jessie held the stage alone. Three years ago, he couldn’t meld such a wide range of feeling, style, and emotion...."
"...Born out of the back room of a San Francisco club in 1992, Mark Farina’s fusion of Eighties hip-hop beats and deep house became its own style. The resulting mushroom jazz cassette series embraced rave culture by focusing on elements of downtempo, boom bap, Latin, and other soulful flavors..."
"...Blood Fest is the name of a Renaissance-faire-style horror festival – a secluded, outdoor gathering for the world’s largest gorehounds. Dax (Kay) has been obsessed with horror ever since his mom was murdered on Halloween night while they were watching White Zombie..."
"...Milly (Kravitz), a pole-dancer with a heart of gold, joins them after the blaster impressively blows out a wall in her place of business. All the while, the brothers are being chased by a couple of ray-gun protectors, otherworldly enforcers who dress Terminator-style and zoom toward its signal on motorcycles seemingly fueled by the speed of light...."
"...Quick to form loosely knit Wu-Tang-style collectives, the League of Extraordinary Gz, founded in 2009, rap/rock blend Dirty Wormz, and more recently Team Next dispersed into solo and small-band acts. Even the Southern battle rap scene, which used to be headquartered in Austin, is now disbanded..."
"...Watson, a Cal graduate transfer, has rare shiftiness while freshman Ingram comes in ranked as the top high school running back in the state. Combining elite vision with a tall and strong downhill running style, Ingram is the freshman to keep an eye on this season...."
"...3. Whiskies of the World We begin to suspect that Fair Market's some kind of boozy epicenter at this point, as now the venue plays host to this prestigious gathering of connoisseurs, distillers, mixologists, and bona fide whisky-expert celebrities presenting hundreds of different styles from all over the world – Scottish, Irish, American, Texan, Canadian, Indian, Australian, and so on – and with masterclasses available for those who are called to deeper knowledge, and with VIP options including that whole cigar-celebrating side of the culture..."
"..."He's a real prodigy," said Bryant, "and one of the things that differentiates him from other cartoonists is that he never branded himself. A lot of the advice that he got when he started out was 'pick a style,' and the whole idea of branding himself was sickening to him."..."

"...This summer’s stoney sequel to Rolling Papers stacks atop an already hazy stash of baked gems for Wiz Khalifa, while co-headlining brethren Rae Sremmurd promote their SremmLife-style via superfluous trap with whimsical debauchery. The kids will be out for Kimetrius Foose, aka Lil Skies, a face-tatted 20-year-old Auto-Tune crooner, while O.T..."
"...In hindsight, it's a perfect pairing: Devolver's Reigns (developed with UK-based studio Nerial) is a swipe-style app-based game about ascending to the throne of a fantastical medieval kingdom - and then hanging on to it, balancing out the demands and needs of the peasants, aristocrats, clerics, and warring factions under your rule. Part of the appeal is that you can take a ....."
"...Constantly on the move, Rosarito's Baja-style taco and ceviche trucks are making fresh waves in a scene grown somewhat stagnant with oversaturation. In 2014, when Carlos Acosta and his cousin Mauricio Davila first parked their brightly painted taco truck alongside the other food trucks then lining the empty lot at the southwest corner of Fifth and Colorado, they were just hoping to find their place in Austin's crowded taco scene, and to offer, as Acosta says, "a different kind of Mexican food from what [people are] accustomed to in Texas."..."
"...The present can be seen in companies such as Aztlan Dance, which evolved out of Maria Salinas' folklórico company under the stewardship of her son Roén; Latino Comedy Project, which got its start in 1997; Teatro Vivo, founded by Rupert and JoAnn Reyes in 2000; and Olivia Chacon's A'lante Flamenco. Their productions are contemporary in style and the world they present, even when the forms they use may be traditional..."
"..."Lucynda" lilts with galloping rhythms that evoke early Paul Simon, while "Nod of Knowing" sweeps the country dance hall floor and "Jesus #9" kicks like John Prine. Even the cover of Don Williams' cheesy "I Believe in You" works with Stewart's style, especially next to deep album gem "Yellow Umbrella." With Renaissance, Stewart steps up into an elite tier of local songwriters even if his eclectic sound makes him difficult to pin down...."
"...Geeks on Fleek Things are going anime style at this month's nerdy cosplay-inspired drag show. Thu., Aug..."
"...Oddly enough, none of the district Council races appear quite so packed with wannabes, although I presume that's because you don't get as much ego-inflation in a district race. I know, I know – the national political obsession with amateurism means every last one of us is qualified to be "Mayor of Austin" (one dubious candidate, to be nameless here, has already fashioned himself a wrestling-style championship belt carrying the title)..."
"... [image-5] IN FABRIC D: Peter Strickland United Kingdom, 2018, U.S. Premiere, 118 min. Peter Strickland (The Duke of Burgundy, Berberian Sound Studio) returns to Fantastic Fest in full, flourishing style with In Fabric, a film that’s part surreal thriller, part giallo love letter, part fashion collage, and all hypnotic originality. THE INNOCENT D: Simon Jaquemet Switzerland, Germany, 2018, U.S..."
"...AC: Were there any particular Southern Gothic influences - literary or cinematic - on the story and the style?..."
"...Instead of managing a factory style hive facility of their own, Austin Honey places their bees on local organic farms within a 30-mile radius of the city, where they have a symbiotic relationship with the crops pollinating the produce and supporting a holistic approach to creating strong Austinite foodways. They also devote time to educating consumers on planning bee-friendly landscapes, homes and businesses, and supporting a thriving community of wild pollinators for generations to come..."

"...Elizabeth Street Cafe The Gin Dragon (Glass or Carafe): Drawing from all corners of the globe, the Gin Dragon mixes London dry gin with tiki-style sweetener velvet falernum, and spices it up with jalapenos and Thai basil...."
"...His proximity to the material makes for some rather questionable directorial decisions (he sometimes frames people’s faces too closely), and he’s an unassertive presence behind the lens. There’s a scene where Zach asks him if he wants to act like Bing is there or isn’t, and Bing replies, “Just do whatever you want.” The way he speaks to his interview subjects has the calming tone of a therapist or counselor rather than the probing or investigative style we are used to in documentary filmmaking..."
