Festers, Plan Away! – 2012 ACL Music Festival Schedule Released

It’s incredibly amazing to me how quickly time flies and months rip through the calendar. All of a sudden, I look up and it’s the end of July 2012. That said, however, all is not lost on the swift movement of Father Time, considering the onset of the latter half of the year means two […]

The Gospel According To Maria: Sunday Hippie Church

There’s no secret that I have a hankerin’ for the different, the bizarre, the off-the-beaten-path and certainly the humorous and entertaining. Well, that said, I stumbled upon another experience this past weekend in South Austin that pretty much wraps’em all up in one big ass celebration of life – Sunday Hippie Church at Maria’s Taco […]

Celebrating Austin’s Home Of The Blues

One of my favorite live music venues, not only in Austin, but quite possibly anywhere in the world, Antone’s, is celebrating its 37th Anniversary throughout the month of July here in 2012. Proudly known as Austin’s “Home of the Blues,” legendary local promoter, Clifford Antone, first opened the doors of his prized property, then located […]

Sensory Overload

That is until Saturday evening, June 23, 2012 at the […]

During my time spent working as on-air talent at KGSR Radio Austin, one of my favorite experiences has been catching acts in the intimate setting of the KGSR Music […]

30 Years of Greatness…And Still Rockin!

In our current society, progress and technology have, without a doubt, taken over many experiences in our lives enjoyed in years past, when we existed in a simpler time and place. However, one staple in my world that will remain, as long as this world will let it, is the beauty and thrill of visiting […]

Ain’t Nobody Feelin’ No Pain…

As many of my closest know, I absolutely love “the road trip.” The freedom of hopping in the car, crankin’ the tunes, windows down and heading out to wide open spaces. One of my favorite locales to visit in the great blue yonder near Austin is the “hill country hamlet” of Luckenbach, made famous by […]
