    Los Skarnales

    Talk about a dynamite mix: Da de los Muertos, Los Skarnales, art crosses and MECA (Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts). That's the formula for Under the Volcano's annual Day of the Dead benefit. While local artists hand over de...

    Legendary Pink Dots

    A music store's status as "eclectic" is defined by one thing, and one thing only: Does it carry music by the Legendary Pink Dots? Quite possibly the most avant-garde of the avant-garde, the Holland-based psychedelic minstrels have never skipped Hous...

    What to do with a hopelessly pretentious but inarguably catchy band like Colourmusic? Though the Stillwater, Oklahoma, natives claim a bloodline to Sir Isaac Newton and a mission to make records based on the principle of synesthesia -- where hearing...

    Roy Orbison: The Soul of Rock and Roll

    The leg up Roy Orbison had on fellow founding fathers of rock Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly was that he could be all of them at once. His bodacious voice, mad guitar skills and nerd-chic look rocked around the clock. These combined powe...

    Calle 13: Los de Atras Vienen Conmigo

    On its self-titled 2005 debut, Puerto Rican duo Calle 13 was hilarious and musically innovative, vocalist Residente's lyrics poking fun at every aspect of contemporary Latin culture while his cousin Visitante's beats combined reggaeton, hip-hop and ...

    Zilker Park scenes from Sunday

    It's one thing to get a band tattoo. It's quite another to appropriate as your own makeshift family crest. In a sea of pirate flags and inflatable chicks, it's a welcome relief to see a crazy ass feather boa contraption that screams "Hey Gurl!" ...

    Against Me! at ACL Fest

    The closest the MySpace generation will get to its own Bruce Springsteen is Tom Gabel, lead singer/guitarist of Gainesville's Against Me! And if by any chance you aren't swayed by the comparisons to the Boss, then he and his band could also be the Cl...

    Erykah Badu at ACL Fest

    With all apologies to Beck and Sharon Jones, nobody I've seen has completely owned the crowd from beginning to end the way Erykah Badu did yesterday afternoon, from the raucous applause that greeted her as she slowly and confidently strode on stage d...

    ACL Day Three: Prone to Hallucination

    As the final hours of ACL tick away, we salute all those still standing. It's been a hot mess of a festival, and those in it for the long haul had to get creative if they could to keep cool, and keep conscious. In extreme situations like this, when y...

    Dispatch From the VIP Grove

    What do you know? I'm feeling much more civilized, and all it took was a brief trip to the VIP Grove to see how the other half lives. The festival's sponsors and other honored guests - as in people willing to shell out about 600 clams on top of the...

    ACL Sunday: Octopus Project, The Kills and Questioning My Existence

    Running on fumes, I'm pretty sure I've started hallucinating. I keep looking for tomorrow's schedule and can't seem to find it anywhere. Surely it has nothing to do with the Butthole Surfers scorched-earth reunion show at Stubb's - they closed with "...

    Beck at ACL Fest

    Beck opened up his closing set on Saturday night with 1994 watershed hit "Loser," the song that was his would-be one-hit wonder. That took some cojones, but when you have a catalog as maniacally diverse and innovative as his, it's a moot point. As ...

    Spiritualized at ACL Fest

    The last time I saw Spiritualized, five or six years ago at the Gypsy Tea Room, the light show was incredible. The choreographed strobes and beams of light cutting through the smoke were such an integral part of the experience that I wondered how a d...
