    Dan Robinson must be the scourge of Shepherd Plaza by now. First, as the proprietor of the Voodoo Lounge, he goes public about his spat with fellow tenants and the complex's Trammell Crow management team. He alleged that professional jealousy and ...

    Out of Africa

    Well versed and well traveled, Randy Weston defined "multicultural" with his blend of jazz and African traditional music decades before the term became a divisive sociopolitical catch phrase. As if the 72-year-old pianist ever really had a choice in ...

    In the Black

    Everyone wins at an all-day, live-music marathon like Fall Jam IV. The radio station (in this case, KLOL/101.1 FM) gets plenty of publicity, and listeners get to see a lot of acts -- perhaps even a few of their heroes -- at a reasonable cost. Even be...

    Juliana Hatfield Bed Zo/Rounder You could say that Bed is an experiment of sorts, a time-killer on a small label as Juliana Hatfield searches out a permanent home. The former Blake Baby turned moderately successful solo artist admits that ...

    Big mouth strikes again... It was too good to be true. A phone call conceding defeat; a broken, bitter DJ out of a job once again -- and before he could even mutter a single insult in Houston. Without question, the voice on my answering machine was t...

    To hear some of the more underground night owls tell it, you'd think Club Some -- Emo's infamous after-hours alter ego -- has sold out. Not quite, says co-owner Neil Heller. "In essence, the crowd hasn't changed at all," says Heller, who foun...

    PatiencePays - Decades down the line, Sherman Robertson has finally made an album he likes

    In a city where several storied blues guitarists still play gigs regularly on local stages, eastside resident Sherman Robertson remains relatively obscure. And, in a sense, he has no one but himself to blame. Since the early 1980s, he has only occasi...

    Teddy Remembered

    Man or Monster?

    Whoever would've thought Barbra Streisand was such a Rob Zombie fan? When Babs wanted those pesky paparazzi to keep away from her recent wedding, her tactic was to spray them with aural artillery fire courtesy of Rob's band, White Zombie. Luckily for...

    Made to Suffer

    It's easy to see why Richard Buckner is such a fan of the Pacific Northwest's clammy climate: Rainy days are a legitimate excuse to sit around the house, dim the lights and brood. As if he needs a reason. Buckner could find the black-slate lining in ...
