    It's once again time for a Reverberation at Boondocks, so be there this Saturday, and be careful on the stairs. And if you're the sort who likes to start early (and what really constitutes "early" on a Saturday?), you won't do much better than sho...

    Mister Beebe Goes to Marfa

    It's official, the votes are in, and David Beebe is the newest member of Marfa City Council. He won by a razor-thin two-vote margin. Anyone want to bet on how long it will be before he's the mayor?

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: An Open Letter to Ed Shane, Publisher of Best In Texas

    HouTube: The Best Music Video of All Time

    Well, that's the way my dad put it when he sent it to me, and damn if I don't think he might be right. What we have here is the sedate majesty of pop-soul king Brook Benton, teamed up with a bevy of apparently benzedrine-addled go-go girls, that l...

    nelo CD release

    Austin newcomers nelo's press kit helpfully points that the sextet's names rhymes with "hello." A much better homophone would be "mellow," because their self-titled debut is about as chill as an October afternoon in Wisconsin without any long underwe...

    Mp3: Arthur Yoria's "The Libyans"

    Houston pop-rock king Arthur Yoria is giving away a new song called "The Libyans." As usual, it's catchy as hell, but Yoria's skillz in the studio continue to develop. The spare, skeletal intro blossoms into something as spacious, big-sky and vaultin...

    Fat Possum Records' business model would give second thoughts to anyone who thinks the proverbial deal with the devil is as much a musty museum piece as Muddy Waters' hat or Elmore James's slide. As the crotchety old folks like R.L. Burnside, T-Mode...
