Tyler Childers’ Universal Sound
High lonesome and dark-hollered grit
DAILY Music  July 20, 2018, by Doug Freeman
"...Unloading lines that might seem too clever if they didn’t cut with so much truth, “Get me higher than a grocery bill,” he and his backing fourpiece, which included fiddle, pedal steel, and mandolin, worked a sound that appeals across hardcore country, string band jams, and sincere singer/songwriter audiences. Like Steve Earle, his slightly awkward and intense stage presence plays against a no-shit attitude and straight rocking style that rumbles through exceptional narratives...."

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot
Joaquin Phoenix creates a charming warts-and-all portrait of cartoonist John Callahan
Film Review  July 20, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...In the days between toothless, Family Circle-style funny pages, and the rise of the indie web comic, there was a brief, shining era when American cartoonists were unlikely megastars. Gary Larson, Berkeley Breathed, Bill Watterson – they were as much household names as the characters they illustrated..."

Izzy Gets the Fuck Across Town
Mackenzie Davis is a great traveling companion for this dull roadtrip
Film Review  July 20, 2018, by Danielle White
"...Izzy is propelled by a punky soundtrack (Axemen, Bikini Kill) that charges the air with the best of bad intentions as Davis grounds the film in magnetic narcissism. The action is interspersed with purple-tinged scenes of three versions of Izzy, acting as the Fates in this modern myth, as they converse in a spoken-word style..."

On the Trail of the Local Snail
Austin, in one way or another, has it escargot-ing on
Food Story  July 19, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Most were found in citrus fields and therefore ate a lot of orange or lime leaves. We'd do them in a Thai style or serve them with aged butter and garlic and grilled bread..."

Playback: Friday the 13th Reaps Austin Music
Joe Valentine, Ponty Bone, Fai Jow all pass on the same day
Music Column  July 19, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Fans missed Ponty Bone for several years before he passed at age 78. The once omnipresent accordion sage, whose feel-good style had prompted dancing for five decades, had been stricken with progressive supranuclear palsy, a brain disease that robs you of your most basic functions..."

Iron & Wine Comes Full Circle
Beam also hosts Sorcerer at the Paramount tonight!
DAILY Music  July 16, 2018, by Doug Freeman
"...The heavy banter left a race at the end through dark and bluesy “Arms of the Thief” and the closing swell of “About a Bruise.” That only left time for only a quick, single song encore of “The Desert Babbler.” The uniqueness of the evening prevailed in Beam’s informal style, welcoming back to Austin a familiar and joyous event...."

Ten Local Lunch Spots With Cocktails
Because you may as well have something to drink
DAILY Food  July 12, 2018, by R.T. Frank

"Jonathan Muzacz: Stained Slabs" at the Butridge

Arts Review  July 12, 2018, by Melany Jean

Food Story  July 12, 2018, by R.T. Frank
"...Bombay London Dry Gin Sapphire is their more well-known offering, but their classic London dry is a great representation of the original style: heavy juniper, hints of pepper and bitter citrus, clean finish. Distilled in Hampshire, United Kingdom...."

40 Songs to Make You Feel Better (or Worse) About Drinking
A sampling of drinking songs local, south of the border, and global
Music Story  July 12, 2018, by The Music Staff
"...All of this quintessential bluesman's works center on whiskey and women, and in that order as noted in the title of a 2004 collection of his best works: Whiskey Is My Habit, Good Women Is All I Crave. The Nashville-born, Indianapolis-raised pianist and Ray Charles precursor died from alcoholism at 30, leaving a smooth urban vocal style and sadly ironic songs..."

Playback: Love Us or Hiatus
Rare gigs and soft breakups from Iron Age and US Weekly
Music Column  July 12, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Ripping into "Dispossessed," driven by the twin guitar scrape of Wade Allison and Chris Ulsh – who leads Austin's Mammoth Grinder and drives Dallas' Power Trip from the drum riser – Iron Age's signature grip of early Metallica thrash, Anti-Cimex-style hardcore punk, and mythical themes rang everlasting. Singer Jason Tarpey, now in Eternal Champion, remains the chest-pounding metal Adonis, shooting invisible arrows while alternating between a hardcore roar and Mercyful shriek...."

Sherry Thomas Is Our Lady of Crime Solving
The game's afoot in a very different way in the Lady Sherlock series by Austinite Sherry Thomas

July 4 Murder, or Self-Defense?
What happened before Jason Roche shot Devonte Ortiz?
News Story  July 12, 2018, by Nina Hernandez
"...Austin Police obtained cell phone footage confirming that detail, and additional events in the altercation: Roche and Ortiz continued to argue; Roche pursued Ortiz around a parked Nissan sedan; Roche's father briefly intervened and started shoving with Ortiz. Police found an AR-15-style rifle on the ground by the front tire of the Nissan, but Ortiz was unarmed when he was killed..."

World Cup Watch
The finals edition
Sports Story  July 12, 2018, by Nick Barbaro
"...Belgium had possession of the ball for almost two-thirds of the game, but could do nothing with it. (In fact, perhaps that hampered the counterattacking style that had so devastated previous opponents; you can't counterattack if you have the ball the whole time.) Croatia's Mario Mandžukić (set to welcome Cristiano Ronaldo as his strike partner at Juventus in Italy next month) will have to have more success than Belgium's Romelu Lukaku did in getting touches and holding up the ball in the middle of the attack. Who's Watching?..."

Bedroom Pop, Comfort for the Sad Unknown
Michael Seyer, Bane’s World & Inner Wave take back humanity
DAILY Music  July 10, 2018, by Jeremy Steinberger
"...The show’s contrast in styles and attitude showcased bedroom pop as less of a style of music and more so a reflection of a generation of like-minded artists with a DIY emphasis on song making. The common thread is a general desire to make music that looks, feels, and acts like those actually listening to it...."

A New ATX6 Ventures to Vietnam
Music scene ambassadors prepare for far-flung adventures
DAILY Music  July 9, 2018
"...This batch of sixers corrals Cory Reinisch, frontman of balladeers the Harvest Thieves; singer Nnedi Agbaroji, who leads electro-tribalists Trouble in the Streets; multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Jacob Jaeger, whose style could be pegged as Townes Van Zandt with jazz chords; Carrie Fussell, the colorful vocalist for jubilant art-pop act Calliope Musicals; journeyman indie rocker Michael Booher; and Georgia Parker, a young, Western Swing talent who plays upright bass, guitar, and sings...."

The Winner by Karl Stevens
Here's the latest from that Boston badass of sequential art and reverie
DAILY Arts  July 9, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Stevens’ comics, his panels, are painstaking representations of daily life – penciled and inked into delicately crosshatched realism, often brought to normal-vision verisimilitude with a subtle palette of watercolors. These are evidence of the sort of technical precision and graphic style that so many figurative artists only aspire to, the kind of things, when they’re in discrete frames and sans word-balloons, improve the walls of any hightoned gallery of portraits..."

Celebrate National Fried Chicken Day With Five Styles
Eat all five in one day and let us know what happens
DAILY Food  July 6, 2018, by Emily Beyda
"...because they’re serving both savory and sweet. We like the opulent What The Cluck, a baroque blend of fried chicken, fried eggs, fried bacon, and Sriracha mayo, testing the absorptive limits of those little waffle squares. Popcorn style:..."

Teen anime adds parallel timelines to a Romeo and Juliet plot.
Film Review  July 6, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...The latest feature from veteran TV animation director Akiyuki Shimbô. Fireworks is an unlikely adaptation of Shunji Iwai’s 1993 TV drama Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom? It was part Fuji TV’s If, a series of “what if?” -style stories, where the protagonists would get to play out an everyday drama with two very different results (so if there any pangs of reminisce of Gwyneth Paltrow’s sappy 1998 fantasy Sliding Doors, Fireworks beat it to the time-and-again romance punch)..."

Willie Nelson Unites America
A guitar-strumming Beto O’Rourke tries too
DAILY Music  July 5, 2018, by Kevin Curtin

I fell in love with a cup of hot corn
Food Story  July 5, 2018, by Jessi Cape
"...If you haven't seen it, get thee to YouTube.) My favorite dishes with the star of the show were the beet tostada with smashed avocado, peanut walnut yum yum sauce, and pickled onions, and the current taco special, the suadero tacos with tender confit brisket, black magic oil, and avocado salsa cruda. A glutton for punishment, we also ordered the mole carrots and the goat barbacoa, served with ramekins of charred shishito salsa, queso fresco, sungold pico, and escabeche-style green bean bits..."

Bob Livingston
Music Review  June 28, 2018, by Doug Freeman
"...Gonzo Band classic "Public Domain" swings impeccably tight, but duets with Eliza Gilkyson ("That's the Way Things Go") and Kelley Mickwee ("Cowgirl's Lullaby") shade tenderly, and Bud Shrake piano ballad co-write "We Should Have Stayed" serves up a late-album highlight. Livingston's song instincts remain impeccable no matter the style...."

“Regional Fictions” at MASS Gallery
This thought-provoking show takes on the educational system's traditional narratives by juxtaposing the familiar with images that challenge it
Arts Review  June 28, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...For Bulletin Board/Cartelera, the artists use education supply store bubble letters and scalloped trim to frame drawings and photocopies. These overtly, such as in a write-up of the damage sustained by vandalism of a school started by the Black Panthers, and at times cheekily, as in an elementary-style worksheet prompting, "Place the correct head in the space above," below a photograph of a man armed with a spear and a gun and above a set of black faces, none of which seem to be the correct head of a bereted Huey Newton, highlight the inherent racism of which narratives are commonly taught within and understood about the school system...."

NYC blaxploitation classic gets an ATL reboot.
Film Review  June 22, 2018, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Never fear: The new Priest, with his leather coat and slicked-back hair that someone refers to as “Morris Day-like,” has style to burn, just as the character did in 1972. In an attempt to update the man, instead of cheating on two separate girlfriends, Priest now has two live-in gal pals with whom he enjoys steamy bed and shower scenes..."

News Story  June 21, 2018, by the News Staff
"...Harding, who earns his living as an employment and ethics attorney, is staking his campaign on his experience at City Hall, which includes time spent on the Board of Adjustment, one of the wonkier boards and commissions. For Harding, who ruffled feathers with his leadership style at the TCDP ("Party of Some," June 15), the question will be whether he's learned enough from that experience to successfully represent D1...."

Point Austin: Who We Are
Treatment of desperate immigrants a stark test of the American idea
News Column  June 21, 2018, by Michael King
"...Nevertheless, since January of 2017, we have been ruled by a minority government, elected by a minority electorate reinforced by a combination of racial demagoguery and suppression of voting rights. That minority has continued to respond largely with enthusiasm to Trump's virulent racism and reflexive dishonesty, popularized by a Pravda-style propaganda media network anchored by Fox News..."

Austin's Barbecue Culture Is Well-Seasoned Thanks to These Pioneers

"..."The young people in Austin started putting creative energy into the food scene, including barbecue, and really taking things to another level," he says.

The Hidden Room Theatre Is Working With a Presidential Assassin
Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, we reckon you’ll really enjoy the show
DAILY Arts  June 12, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...It’s an incredible historical document, from somewhere between 1860 and 1863. It’s this really important moment in American theatre history, because the theatre is actually changing a lot at the moment – more people are going than ever before, the technology of the theatre is changing, and the acting styles are changing..."

Five Recommended Arts Events This Weekend
Just, ah, watch out for those big ol’ motorbikes, mmmkay?
DAILY Arts  June 8, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...3) How does “three acoustic robots singing to each other, round-robin style, mimicking a group therapy session” sound as a concept? Like it’s a sketch from SNL when SNL is actually worth watching? Like, maybe sometime after the Singularity? But, no, this is “Deliriums,” a legit art installation that's happening right now, and it’s created by that mechanical savant Matthew Steinke. The local and musically inclined tinkerer who’s delighted the city with robot-driven holiday concerts now brings us his latest exhibition – with a opening reception at Northern-Southern Gallery this Saturday night...."

DAILY Food  June 8, 2018, by R.T. Frank
"...Many Swedes prefer to drink apple or pear-based cider instead. Unlike a dry French cider, a full-bodied English pub style cider, or a funky Spanish cider, Swedish ciders definitely fall on the sweeter side of the spectrum. Switzerland Heavily influenced by its neighbors, Switzerland is home to both amazing wine and phenomenal beer..."

Ocean's 8
Sandra Bullock is the other Ocean sibling in this all-female revamp of the heist franchise
Film Review  June 8, 2018, by Danielle White
"...In a structure similar to Ocean’s Eleven, the bulk of the drama (and entertainment) rests on the setup as much as the execution of the crime, as each character is plucked from her straight life – though the third act drags when too much time is spent on the aftermath, and the wrapping is a little too tidy. Ocean’s fans may detect traces of previous films, whether in a seemingly stray bit of dialogue, a character cameo, or the sleepy yet charismatic wit of the lead – but director Gary Ross’ style is more along the lines of a high-gloss fashion spread rather than the red-light glow of Soderbergh’s sin-soaked underworld..."

Bob Schneider Record Review
Blood and Bones (Shockorama)
Music Story  June 7, 2018, by Doug Freeman
"...Settling into his 50s, Austin's musical chameleon now reckons with that reality, but also an appreciation of the subtle joys accompanying said mortal terror. Sixth solo LP, Blood and Bones swerves expectedly eclectic in style, bouncing from funked up raps to smooth pop, yet the moments of sincere reflection caught in Schneider's immaculate and surprising turns of phrase stand out most of all..."

La Fenice's Cthulhu Beach Party
This commedia spoof mashes up surfside love and Lovecraft for an incredibly fun romp
Arts Review  June 7, 2018, by Shanon Weaver
"...What do you get when you take a cheesy Fifties beach movie, set it in the Atlantic Northeast during Prohibition, throw in a Lovecraftian plot complete with Necronomicon and an appearance by a Great Old One, and tell the whole thing in the style of commedia dell'arte?..."

How to Talk to Girls at Parties
Neil Gaiman's short story gets an inessential musical makeover.
Film Review  June 1, 2018, by Marc Savlov
"...Where is anybody’s guess, even if you’re familiar with the short story by Neil Gaiman from which this honestly bizarre feature-length film is adapted. There’s bits and bobs of his otherworldly romanticist’s worldview scattered like tiny land mines of sanity throughout this otherwise bonkers film, but fans of Gaiman’s superb Starz television series American Gods will either be nonplussed or initiate outright anarchy in the theatre, UK ’77-style, when confronted with director and screenwriter Mitchell’s outrageous and defiantly over-the-top-and-beyond-the-fringe take on the author’s low-key love story...."
