Bullet the Blue Sky

Prolific Austin producer and musician Ron Flynt (20/20, Big Blue Hearts) fell off a ladder while hanging drywall at the new location of his Jumping Dog studio in September, shattering his elbow and upper arm bone. Although he has regained enough use of his arm to play guitar again, he may need further surgery, and his friends have organized an "Our Man Flynt" benefit 8pm Wednesday at the Continental Club; performers include Peter Case, Dwight Twilley, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Penny Jo Pullus, Jon Dee Graham, Fire Marshals of Bethlehem, and many more. Donations accepted and complete lineup available at www.ourmanflynt.com.

Popular East Austin restaurant and nightclub the Shack, located at 1167 Webberville and known as the "House of R&B," burned down around 5:30am Jan. 9. Austin Fire Department investigators estimated the damage at $150,000 but have not released an official cause. One theory was an electrical fire similar to the one that claimed Midtown Live in February 2005.

Oops: The volunteer call times in last week's SXSW item were incorrect. Returnees should report to the Hilton Downtown's main ballroom at 12:30pm Sunday; first-timers at 3:30pm.
