onstage. According to reports, late in his
show he shouted “Anyone got a beer?” One
fan quickly obliged him by tossing a full can,
which Green caught. As the singer lifted it
for a quick toast, another full and unopened
can was thrown — hard, apparently — striking
Green between the eyes. Initial reports that
the singer was knocked unconscious proved
to be false; Green left the stage under his
own power, suffering only a small cut and
some swelling. He performed at the Iowa
State Fair the next day.
Willie weaves western yarn
Griffin helps KUT celebrate 50
she and her band — including Austinites Ian
McLagan on piano, Michael Ramos on accordion and Michael Longoria on drums — performed an intimate, hour-long show of stunning tunes that left even previously unacquainted fans with no doubt why she
deserves even more recognition as one of
the top singing/songwriting talents of this
era.
Instead of “what would Willie do?” the question should be “when will Willie rest?” This
year, the man has already released a box set
and an album with Wynton Marsalis, and
now his debut novel is coming out on Sept.
3. A Tale Out of Luck, co-authored with Mike
Blakely, is a classic Western tale complete
with Texas Rangers, cattle rustling, Indian
warriors, saloons, shoot-outs and more. The
book is based on a back story Nelson put
together for his Western town built on his
ranch outside of Austin named “Luck,”
which has served as the backdrop for various events and productions, including the
music video for “Beer for My Horses.”
DSO violinist is new director
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra AT&T
Opening Gala on Sept. 10 will feature both a
new music director and famed violinist:
Jaap van Zweden. Born in the Netherlands
in 1960, van Zweden entered The Julliard
School in New York at age 16, and by 19,
was named the youngest concertmaster of
the Royal Concertbegouw Orchestra of
Amsterdam. The opening gala will be the
first and last time the Dallas audience will
get to hear van Zweden perform violin
before he takes over as director. For tickets, call 214-871-4065.

Fifty is a lot of years for a radio station to be
on the air with no call-letter changes, no radical structural changes, no shift from public to
private or “quasi-public” (read: agendabased) ownership. But Austin-based KUT-FM
(90.5) has reached that milestone, and
kicked off a series of celebrations with a private performance for station friends and
ticket winners by red-headed thrush Patty
Griffin, held Aug. 22 in the Austin City Limits
studio of sister station KLRU-TV. Texas Music
Matters producer/host David Brown expertly
steered Griffin into discussing her reasons for
moving from Boston to Austin (a guy, natch),
how she began singing (she discovered as a
child that she loved it more than anything
else) and some of the ups and downs of an
impressive career that’s still blooming. Then
As if Texas wasn’t big enough, Kimmie
Rhodes takes off on a European tour with
Emmylou Harris on Sept. 9 in support of
her new record Walls Fall Down. The longtime friends have written songs together,
recorded together and even appeared
together on Austin City Limits. Rhodes, a
Lubbock native, may need to brush up on
her German and French, not to mention
Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Dutch as
the tour makes its way through 14 cities in
nine countries in less than a month.

What better place for a songwriter meeting
than a coffeehouse named Dosey Doe? The
Nashville Songwriters Association
International (NSAI) has created a new Texas
chapter, the NSAI Houston North Metro
Chapter. Beginning Oct. 1, the group is scheduled to meet in The Woodlands at Dosey Doe
Coffeehouse on the first Wednesday of each
month from 7-8:30 p.m. Each meeting will
offer educational programs and group critiques and will conclude with an open mic format for local writers to perform their original
music. More info can be found at

New Mexico music fest
The folks in New Mexico should prepare for
a Texas invasion — of the musical kind —
since a variety of Texas artists have been
picked to play Michael Hearne’s Big Barn
Dance Music Festival in Taos, N.M. Sept. 4-6.
What started as a “neighborhood two-steppin’ party” for Hearne’s band South by
Southwest has turned into an annual event
and is now an official music festival (but of
course, the festival name South by
Southwest was already taken!). The threeday event features such Texas-based artists
as Terri Hendrix, Lloyd Maines, the Gougers,
Susan Gibson, Kevin Deal, Shake Russell
Band, Tom Faulkner and Gary P. Nunn. For

Hard Rock goes country
Houston-area honky-tonker Cody Kouba
earned a serious career boost on Aug. 15,
winning the Hard Rock Cafe’s Next Big Star
competition. It was no ordinary battle of the
bands, though; the prize was an opening gig
in front of 60,000 fans opening for country
music superstar Kenny Chesney at Reliant
Stadium the next night. The panel of judges
selected the Cody Kouba Band from a field
that included regional artists Bleu
Edmondson, Zane Lewis and Bill Archer.
Kouba may have had experience on his side.
During his days with the Texas country band
F-Co, he opened for big names such as
Sammy Hagar and Pat Green.

Apparently one person can make a difference
— at least when it comes to the 4th Annual
BATFEST! in downtown Austin on Aug. 30-31.
Gege Cordeiro, manager of a local furniture
store located on the southwest corner of the
Ann Richards Congress Avenue Bridge, has
voiced her opposition to the Roadway Events
festival, claiming the bridge closure prevents
customers from reaching her store during her
biggest weekend for sales. This means that
even though the bats actually live under the
Congress Bridge, this year’s festival will be
held on the First Street Bridge instead. So
while you’re checking out the bats from this
new vantage point a quarter mile down the
road, check out the 30 live bands scheduled
The Democratic National Convention is in full
swing in Denver, and Texans were on hand
this week for the nomination of Barack
Obama as the party’s presidential candidate.
Marcia Ball brought her sassy keyboard
stylings to appear with some Louisiana music
stars, including Cyril Neville and Randy
Newman at a DNC kick-off party on Sunday.
Alejandro Escovedo performed on Tuesday
before Hillary Clinton’s speech at the Pepsi
Center. This was Escovedo’s first time
appearing at the convention. He begins a
West Cost tour in San Diego on Sept. 8, continuing to support his latest release, Real
Animal. Escovedo returns to Austin on Aug.
28, along with Ian McLagan and the Bump
Band and The Reivers, to play at Antone’s
benefit for the Austin Child Guidance Center.

METV cuts back
Danny Young, 1941 - 2008
On August 22, Music Entertainment
Television, better known as METV on Time
Warner’s channel 15, launched a round of layoffs affecting all production and administrative staff. The channel, known for promoting
local musicians and artists touring through
the area with videos and interviews, will continue playing videos on the air with a skeleton
crew while station management seeks new
investors. In the meantime, shows like Tex-Mix
and Hill Country have ceased production.
Originally a City of Austin project called the
Austin Music Network, METV became a private, ad-supported venture in 2005.
Danny Roy Young, longtime washboard player for
the Cornell Hurd Band
and, prior to his retirement in 2006, the proprietor of the now closed
Austin landmark Texicalli
Grille, died on Aug. 20 at
the age of 67. Dubbed the
unofficial “mayor of South
Austin” in the ’80s
Photo by Winker
because of his crusade to maintain the
funky integrity of his favorite part of town in
the wake of a (thwarted) plan by the city to
widen South Lamar Boulevard, Young
moved to town in 1975. Soon after, he
opened his restaurant (which had two prior
locations before settling in to its East Oltorf
digs in 1989). The eatery was as well known
for its jukebox and walls covered with Austin
music memorabilia — not to mention
Young’s colorful, friendly personality — as it
was for its namesake sliced beef , mushroom, jack cheese and jalapeno sandwich,
which Young first started serving at his family’s cafe in his native Kingsville.
Young’s music career started in Kingsville,
too. That’s where he spent his teens playing
drums in a rock ’n’ roll band. But in Austin, he
was better known for his lively rub board
playing with the country & Western preservation society known as the Cornell Hurd Band.
Young joined the band 15 years ago and was
a fan favorite at the group’s frequent performances at another South Austin restaurant, Jovita’s, earning a second nickname:
“Lord of the Board.”
“We are stunned and saddened beyond
words,” the rest of the Cornell Hurd Band said
in a statement on the band’s Web site. “He
was the heart and soul of this band for a long,
long time.”
Landmark for Continental Club
Many performances at Austin’s Continental
Club have made history, but now it’s official.
On Aug. 21, the Austin City council approved
the city planning commission’s unanimous
decision to make the Continental Club an
historic landmark. To qualify for historic
landmark status, buildings must be at least
50 years old. The historic landmark designation means that the building can never be
torn down or renovated without the permission of the city. The club will also receive a
20 percent reduction in property tax.
Originally opened in 1957 as a swanky supper club, it was transformed into the city’s
first burlesque club in the ’60s. In 1987, current owner Steve Wertheimer took over and
made the club a mainstay of the Austin
music scene. The Continental Club has hosted legendary performers throughout the
years, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe
Ely, Butthole Surfers, Will and Charlie
Sexton, Jon Dee Graham, James McMurtry
and Mojo Nixon, and has been the scene of
many of Austin’s regular music celebrations
like the Buck Owen’s Birthday Bash and
Tony Price’s Tuesday Hippy Hours. A satellite location of the club was opened in
Houston in 2000.

Rodney Crowell
Sex and Gasoline
(Yep Roc)
After putting out arguably the
three best albums of his life in
the last decade —2001’s The
Houston Kid, 2003’s Fate’s Right Hand and
2005’s The Outsider — Rodney Crowell was a
little overdue for a minor stumble. By no
means is Sex & Gasoline a wipeout or anything close to a disaster; it’s just the first
album the songwriter’s put out in recent
memory that doesn’t dazzle from start to finish. When he’s on his game here, Crowell’s as
good as he’s ever been: the sneering title
track, the crackling smarts and melodic wonder of “The Rise and Fall of Intelligent Design”
and the devastating heartbreak of “I’ve Done
Everything I Can.” But elsewhere (“Who Do
You Trust,” “Funky and the Farm Boy”),
Crowell and producer Joe Henry throw craft
aside in favor of ramshackle studio jamming.
There’s an art to that approach, too, of course,
but it comes off here a little more half-baked
than gloriously freewheeling. Whatever his
own beliefs are on evolution, Crowell’s craft
really is best served by the intelligent design
model. RICHARD SKANSE
Roger Creager
Here It Is
(Fun All Wrong)
Roger Creager has spent
almost a decade headlining
shows all over Texas and
beyond, building a fan base that is not only loyal
but patient — it’s been five years since his last
studio CD. The time in between may have
matured Creager somewhat as an artist; the
themes tend toward regret and complicated
love, and the only obvious party anthem (“I’m
From the Beer Joint”, co-written with Houston
maverick John Evans) doesn’t pander so much
as it sincerely charms. Creager leans into the
gravitas of his best material (including “Tangle
releases
artist q&a
chart
click here to read
click here to read
Me In You” and “I Loved You When”) with range
and heart. Though the album kicks off with a
Waylonesque stomper (“I Love Being
Lonesome”) this isn’t so much of an outlaw
revival as it is a more earnest and less patronizing take on what modern mainstream country
could be. Occasionally a track falls flat. “Habit
(Needle In My Arm)” shoots for intense, but
ends up kind of silly, but overall his fans should
find it well worth the wait. ETHAN MESSICK
Bruce Robison
The New World
(Premium)
Best known for his songwriting prose, Bruce Robison
delivers a group of ten original tracks on his latest effort, The New
World. With songs about bad girls, vintage
California wine and a girl named Echo,
Robison again proves himself a master storyteller. The track “California ‘85” is just
plain fun and though not the first track, sets
the tone of the album. The opening harmonica and background vocals provided by wife
Kelly Willis are reminiscent of the good ole
country you used to hear on the radio 30
years ago. In fact, the entire album has an
old-school country feel without feeling out of
date. Robison will keep your feet dancing
and your head bobbing with upbeat tracks
like “The Hammer,” “Only” (which features
some jamming banjo-playing) and “Twistin’”
(sure to be a dancehall favorite). But he’s
best as a balladeer, and those skills are featured well on “Bad Girl Blues,” a sultry, soulful tune as well as “Larosse” and “Hangin’ on
Hopeless.” And finally there’s “Echo,” a slow
rocker written after Robison heard Bob
Dylan mention an old girlfriend from
Minnesota named Echo and then found a girl
from the same place with the same named
mentioned in a love letter written by Buddy
Holly. Coincidence? Maybe. But it sure makes
for a great song. AMANDA PALM

Bonanza of Buddy releases due in October
With the 50th anniversary of his untimely death approaching in February, the music left
behind by pioneering Texas rock ’n’ roller Buddy Holly is sure to be widely celebrated and
revisited in the coming months. Universal Music Enterprises will release two expansive Holly
anthologies on Oct. 21. Memorial Collection (Geffen/UMe) will be a three-disc, 60-track
career overview, spanning his entire career from rare, early undubbed recordings Holly
made with Bob Montgomery, through all of his hits with the Crickets and up to last recordings, including selections from the “Apartment Tapes.” And for the real Holly diehards (who
probably already have all of the stuff on the Memorial Collection), Geffen will also release
Down the Line/Rarities, featuring the “Apartment Tapes” in their entirety as well as the
undubbed “Garage Tapes,” a set of tracks the Crickets recorded in Holly’s family garage. The
two-disc set will also include various other outtakes and alternate recordings of tunes by
Holly and the Crickets.
Q&A Roger Creager
Corpus Christi
native Roger
Creager has been a
steady presence on
the regional music
scene for over a
decade now. He was
among the wave of
young artists influenced by Willie and Waylon
and the boys who made country music cool
again for the college crowd starting in the late
‘90s. With a rangy, pitch-perfect baritone and
the sort of live-wire charisma needed to take a
rowdy crowd to the next level, Creager went
from show-stealing youngster to in-demand
headliner in fairly short order. While not the
most prolific recording artist (only four studio
albums in over ten years), he and his band
have been a touring machine since the beginning. He’s also been a mainstay on regional
radio thanks to crowd-pleasing anthems like
“Love,” “Having Fun All Wrong,” and “The
Everclear Song.” Now, with the August 26
release of his latest disc Here It Is, his fans
have a whole new batch of tunes to savor.

A few of your peers — including Radney, Pat
Green, and Jack Ingram — have had some
major label success. Is that something you
want for yourself, or do you prefer to maintain your independence?
You know, for now, I want to maintain my independence, but I’m not ruling it out for later on
down the road. If I do, I want it to build slowly
and gradually to the top. I just have this feeling that the faster you get there, the faster
you fall on the other side. Whereas if it takes
forever to get up, it takes you forever to get
down, too. Obviously Radney Foster and Pat
and Jack have been at it forever too — that’s
not a slight against them. They’re rolling their
bones their own way.

cover one of your songs, who would you
