Don’t worry, Rod Lacy. I never bathe without my favorite guitar, either.

Show Up!

Dixie Witch

Rock out in crunch country

Like many musicians, Clayton Mills of Austin's Dixie Witch doesn't want his band to be pigeonholed into a single musical category. He seems especially perturbed by the name of the genre in which his band is most commonly placed.

Music Interview

Danzig on Danzig

Glenn Danzig talks with his MySpace alterego

I’m not a journalist. I'm a local musician, who, like a majority of my generation, has a MySpace page. I have my own personal page, sure, but I secretly maintain a Glenn Danzig page. You see, I'm a huge fan of Danzig—from The Misfits to his solo career to his Verotik comic book line, he's a rad and hugely influential artist.

Sonic Reducer

Grand National A Drink and a Quick Decision · Otep The Ascension · Jay-Z American Gangster

Grand National makes the kind of soft electro-pop you'd hear in a Sushi Samba restaurant or an upscale hair salon. But there's more soul and quiet beauty gliding through the tracks on A Drink and a Quick Decision than on most of the ruthlessly smug releases in the genre. Like a drug-addled New Order with acoustic guitar, African drumming and lyrics that float in one ear and out the other, Grand National's sophomore release never does any dazzling aerial tricks but stays at a comfortable cruising altitude, ensuring a relaxing and ultimately fulfilling ride.

EVENT HORIZON ()

“Gonna wear no socks and shoes”

World Beat Spectacular • Wagogo • folk, Latin, jazz, World • Da Terra Meiga • Celtic folk, flamenco • Rev The Music • variety

Black Friday can a time to sit back and ponder the grand mercies of one's life while quiet music plays in the background, a roaring fire warms one and plates of Thanksgiving leftovers lull your desires and dull your senses—that is unless you're one of those Alibi-reading folks that likes to rock out on the weekend. Active listeners can have their pumpkin pie and eat it too on Friday, Nov. 24, at Burt's Tiki Lounge! The big island of a club—in conjunction with Mariposa Music—presents a World Beat Spectacular that will help happy eaters dance away some of those turkey sangwiches and tamales that might otherwise render one unconscious for the rest of the weekend. Your blood will bubble and your feet will frolic to the sounds of legendary Burque band Wagogo. They'll be performing with Da Terra Meiga (a Celtic/Flamenco hybrid) and multi-media psychedelic outfit Rev The Music. The musical feast begins at 8pm, y'all.
