    I'm at something of a loss here, folks. To the best of my knowledge, no clubs closed down. As far as I know, no clubs opened. No bands moved to Austin, and nobody got arrested. The week was a huge spinning void of columnar nothing, punctuated by some...

    What a Long, Strange Trip... - The Missiles cap ten years with a farewell. Their manager remembers.

    We were snowed in in Flagstaff, walking on the ice. The Missiles and their manager, who was me. It wasn't the first time I'd considered killing them. Bill and Dave were several steps behind, and Ken was camped out in the shower of the Starlight Motor...

    Retro Grade A

    When North Carolina's Southern Culture on the Skids are hungry, they scarf pork and fried chicken. When they're at home, they're pickin' and grinnin' in a trailer park. And when they're feeling romantic, they write an ode to hillbilly love called "Pu...

    Musical Chairs - Clubs open, clubs close -- the only thing constant is change itself

    Yes, I'm getting tired of ringing this bell, but what's a reporter to do when his beat's infrastructure is self-destructing in a nasty, crumbling cycle of closure and doom.... The city's inner-Loop clubs are dropping like flies. First Goat's Head Sou...

    Yiddish Yahoos - The Austin Klezmorim's clamorous eclecticism

    "Klezmer," I'm told by Bill Averbach, leader of The Austin Klezmorim, is Yiddish for "musician," which goes some way toward explaining the wide-open eclecticism of the musical genre of the same name. Eastern European in ancestry, klezmer music is mor...

    Pure-D Purty - Don Walser's yodeling can bring tears, even to the eyes of a Nashville record exec

    There's a bunch of ways to describe a man's singing voice, but Don Walser's crying, yodeling, crooning pipes suggest an adjective that's hard to argue with. Don Walser's voice is purty. Everyone who's heard it knows it, too. The Butthole Surfers...
