"...3: “His Name Was Gary Poulter” (April 11, 2014) [image-13] Another deep cut from the archive, this time with Joe O’Connell’s posthumous biography of Gary Poulter, the homeless Austinite who tragically died before audiences could witness his amazing acting debut in the second of David Gordon Green’s Austin trilogy Joe (read the full story here)...."
"...We also learned this year that you can still become millionaires from throwing shows. Austin concert promoters ScoreMore, who built a grassroots empire listening to the youth and staying ahead of the curve on burgeoning hip-hop and trap artists, sold a controlling stake to Live Nation in May – just as C3 Presents had in 2014. Ins-and-Outs..."

"...Paul International Film Festival, but the hat he wears most frequently these days is multicolored, as festival director for aGLIFF, the All Genders, Lifestyles, and Identities Film Festival.

"...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."..."
"...Aside from Ravals' opening night presentation, he'll be screening another of his award-winning features, 2014's Before You Know It. However, he's not the only director getting a double bill, as aGLIFF celebrates another Texan filmmaker, Yen Tan, as the recipient of its first ever Tribute Award..."
"...That was writer-director Kat Candler's quandary in 2015. A stalwart of Austin's indie film community, she was riding the breakout success of her award-winning 2014 feature Hellion, an adolescent angst flick starring Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Juliette Lewis (Whip It)..."
"...Variety foreshadowed the phenomenon with the article "For SXSW Music, Bigger Isn't Necessarily Better," in which music festival general manager James Minor revealed he's been focused on quality over quantity the last three years. And indeed the hysteria whipped up by SXSW has ebbed since 2014's overblown year of Lady Gaga equating Doritos dust with "bold" lifestyle choices, but last week played out especially manageable..."
"...While it's known for horror, Blumhouse has been built on experimentation and diversity. However, its BH Tilt sub-label was founded in 2014 to extend its portfolio even further; now revamped through a deal with Neon, the imprint is pushing even more boundaries..."
"...Yet director Finlay Pretsell deliberately avoids any details of what and how and why. It's enough to know that, in 2014, Millar tried to get back on the road to the Tour de France – his nemesis, his greatest victory, his defining achievement...."
"...And that's only the top of the order here. Nomura DIPA took third place in the Alpha King Challenge in 2017, in addition to their surprise runner-up placing for Fully Adrift in the 2014 competition, back when Pinthouse was still an underrated prospect...."
"...Rae Sremmurd, whose explosive South by Southwest appearance in 2014 precipitated the Tupelo rap duo’s rise to fame, returns to the festival Friday for a showcase that includes frequent collaborator Mike Will Made-It, producer of their chart-topping single “Black Beatles.”..."
"...Serial, released in 2014, reached 16 million people in season 1, a number greater than the opening viewership of many successful TV shows and movies.

"...Mason Endres remembers very little about being hit by a drunk driver who plowed through late-night crowds on Red River during South by Southwest 2014. A concussion wiped out most of her memories from that evening...."
"...14, Swan Dive Patio, 10:20pm Since forming in 1994 behind Jason Reece and Conrad Keely, TOD proved remarkably consistent in generating concert chaos, crackerjack songwriting, and an explosive fusion of prog ambition and punk's middle-finger thrust. After living in Phnom Penh, Keely's return to Austin finds him and Reece working on a follow-up to 2014's IX..."
"...In 2014, I advised you to check out brothers from Tupelo with a confusing name (Rae Sremmurd). The following season, it was a little-known Canadian pop singer with a weird dreadlock tuft (the Weeknd)..."
"...14, Hotel Vegas Annex, 9:35pm "You're a feminist until I won't fuck you," scowls Eilidh McMillan in a thick Scottish accent. The Glasgow trio's been churning out fearless, no frills, sociopolitical punk since 2014..."

"...In 2014, Charlene deGuzman was already an indie-cool YouTube and social media star (she describes her route to fame as "telling sad-girl Twitter jokes") when she hit rock bottom in her sex and love addiction journey. She sought help, entered a 12-step program, and forced herself through a difficult period of abstinence...."
"...Residing in outer space with a green card for Amsterdam, Olf van Elden produces a clean galactic sound, echewing cosmic noodling in favor of the crisp gunmetal of a house music starship. Disco reigned on his memorable play of 1985 Italo classic "Baja Imperial" during a 2014 Dekmantel appearance. Catz N Dogz..."
"...2014 sophomore platter All or Nothin' broke out Nikki Lane as part of the new wrecking-ball crew razing the Nashville establishment. 2017 follow-up Highway Queen on New West paired the South Carolina native with producer Jonathan Tyler for a more rocking rebel twang. Red Shahan..."
"...Of course, it wouldn't be South By without the Zellners, and brothers David and Nathan ride home with their latest, offbeat historical comedy Damsel. Mumblecore pioneer Andrew Bujalski takes a glimpse at the bizarre world of breastaurants in Support the Girls, while Austin director Michael Tully (SXSW 2014's Ping Pong Summer) deals in the supernatural with our SXSW cover star Anna Margaret Hollyman in Don't Leave Home..."
"...He knows too well what many presume to understand. Coming home from Delaware during the early hours of June 7, 2014, a Wal-Mart long-haul truck driver who hadn't slept in over a day struck a Sprinter limo-van Morgan was riding in, off Exit 9 on the New Jersey Turnpike..."

"...After a brief festival run in 2007, MGM had it lined up for a wide release, springboarding off the recent and unexpected success of Paranormal Activity. At the last minute, it was inexplicably pulled, and aside from a bizarrely brief 2014 VOD release, it has been invisible for a decade..."
