    Drenched in Blog: March Madness, Rock-Style

    Look, I know nothing about basketball. When the Rockets were in the middle of that winning streak a few weeks back, I asked where Hakeem was. I'm sorry, but my knowledge of the sport ends in 1996, when a little thing called puberty knocked on my door...

    Meet Paul Ford, the 763 mp3 Guy: He Covered the Waterfront like No Other, from Over 1,000 Miles Away

    It's probably safe to say that nobody's South By Southwest experience this year was as comprehensive as that of Paul Ford, an editor at Harper's and a blogger at the Themorningnews.org. And here's the thing - Ford never left New York City. Instead,...

    Reverberations: The Rippers, Thee Exciters and Brimstone Howl

    Which is a bummer, since I saw the Rippers play a fearsome set at the Mink on Saturday and very few of you were there. I know this because, until Uptown Bums - who played immediately before the Rippers - went on, it was me, my girlfriend, the barte...

    Hayes Carll

    I suspect there is a contingent that will howl long and loud that Hayes Carll's third album (and first on the Lost Highway label) is too slick, too Nashville, not raw enough. In their way they will be right, but I don't want to get into that argumen...

    British Sea Power, with Film School, Colour Music and the Watermarks

    UK indie-rockers British Sea Power were Ivy League smarty-pants way before Vampire Weekend came on the scene. On their 2003 debut, The Decline of British Sea Power, they penned melancholy songs about old-school Russian literature and obscure histori...

    Dionne Warwick

    Dionne Warwick has disproved that old "no second acts in American lives" saw famously. With a voice both honeyed and dusky, Warwick was frontwoman for one of the greatest partnerships in pop history, Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Their 1960s chart r...

    Streetlight Manifesto, with Dan Potthast and Zox

    Everybody indulges in a guilty pleasure or two. For some, it's eating mayonnaise with a spoon; for others, made-for-TV movies fit the bill. For my wife it's the emotional trash of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Some noble souls choose to brave the judgmen...

    The Bobcat Benefit

    Local bands love benefits. In fact, like the kid in class who needs to pee, they'll hold up their hands and scream "me, me" until they are booked onto the thing. The reason is simple: benefits pay the same as most of their regular gigs, but at least...

    Sitting Down with La Porte's Buxton

    Monotonix Rules South By Southwest 2008

    As everybody knows, South By Southwest has gotten huge. Overwhelmingly so, if you let it. Every hour, from about noon to two a.m., across a swath of Austin from Cicon in the East Side barrio through downtown and then way down South Congress, there ...

    SXSW: Fourteen Bands in Eight Hours

    As I set out Saturday night for the last of this year's SXSW, little was set in stone. My assigned bands were at venues unlikely to be merciful to rock journo trash with only a wristband adorning his arm. Meaning that this night would be one of gra...
