    Drenched In Blog: Day One Da Nang

    Yesterday saw fires, three of them. One saw porta-potties and cars set ablaze by a propane tank. A speaker at the Bjork show started flaming. Then, my pants got on fire from all the friction. It was hot out here as Scarlett Johansson in The Island. (...

    Drenched In Blog: ACL Fest in Photos

    Someone got the bright idea to pair Paolo Nutini and Ray Benson from Asleep at the Wheel for an artist panel in the media lounge. They ask Paolo what it's like to tour in Texas, and so he goes off on this weird patronizing reply in his lady-killing...

    Memories of ACLs Past: The Halliburton Shirt

    As I head out the door to Austin, I'm reminded of ACL Fest 2003, back when the world was young and people actually gave a shit about the Polyphonic Spree. I was living in Houston at the time, writing for the paper version of Houstoned, and I'd come ...

    Drenched In Blog: Goin' Out West for ACL Fest

    So I've made the journey out west to discover celebrity gold in them here rolling hills of Austin. On the way here down Highway 71, I saw pretty little Jettas all in a row, with girlies rocking out to the new Rilo Kiley, smoking menthols. I lit a few...

    You Should've Been There: The Mathletes at the Proletariat

    Joe and his Mathletes (which includes all four Dimes) danced, jumped, joked and rocked their way through a set of original tunes and cover songs. Joe's style is like a combination of They Might Be Giants and Atom and His Package. His lyrics about abs...

    Joseph Zawinful, R.I.P.

    There have long been a handful of songs I assumed could have only been written by angels, not men. "Amazing Grace" tops that list, even though I know it was written by a self-loathing slave-trader. One of the others is "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," a stan...

    Drenched In Blog: Kanye vs. Fiddy vs. Black Lips

    I thought beefs went out with the XFL, but apparently in the rap world, they still linger. Today, two of its biggest stars, Kanye West and 50 Cent, are both releasing albums, much to each other's chagrin. The occasion is being trumped up by the media...
