Bullet the Blue Sky
Meanwhile, back in Austin ...
Rumor of the Week: Atlanta wastrels the Black Crowes, who played one of their last shows at Auditorium Shores in 2001, are interested in re-forming, but the vibe between the brothers Robinson is so dysfunctional and Kinks-like no sideman will take the gig.
The Texas Rollergirls would cordially like to offer Social Distortion, who plays Stubb's Sept. 27, VIP passes for their Sept. 26 semifinal bout. SD reps should contact email@example.com.
Sunday memorials this week are for late local jazz guru Martin Banks at Laguna Gloria Art Museum, 5:30pm, and Johnny Cash at the Longbranch Inn, all day.
Celebrating a decade of "Wasted Days, Wasted Nights," the Rock & Roll Free for All returns to the Hole in the Wall every Sunday in September. This week's installment is Matt Hubbard and the Superego All-Stars. 10pm.
"TCB" Correction Corner: Tim Kerr is producer, not engineer, of Attack Formation's album-in-progress. Bryan Nelson owns some equipment at Sweatbox, but not the studio. The band's free show at the Whisky Bar with the Sword is tonight, not last Thursday. Apologies.
