Show Of The Week

I know that getting out for a show in icy Austin seems ludicrous right now, but the weather is actually supposed to be much more tolerable by tomorrow.  So, I believe that means you have no excuse to not go to Cheer Up Charlie’s tomorrow night for a rad local affair that features My Golden [...]

Quickdraw: Jay Som, Car Seat Headrest, Walter Martin, Jack White, Frankie Cosmos

Enjoy. Jay Som – Pirouette Jay Som became a big favorite of mine last year with her debut album, Everybody Works.  On January 26 she’s going to put out a 7″ with two unreleased tracks from the EW sessions.  The A-side is what I have today – it’s good. Car Seat Headrest – Nervous Young [...]

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

This time of year everything sucks. I mean the shiny bits of Christmas and the holidays are fading out and all that is left are the gloomy bits of winter. Metal, of course, soundtracks the season perfectly, but even that gets tedious in January, a few new albums, songs, videos or whatever, but overall kind [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Commuter (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s my first film of the year and though I know it’s another over-plotted, run-of-the-mill action flick by Jaume Collet-Serra and his elderly star, Liam Neeson, my optimism is high. Post-Screening Ramble: Jaume Collet-Serra has somehow carved a niche into the world of action-filmmaking based solely on the strange formula of his pictures. [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Post

Pre-Screening Stance: As much as I like Steven Spielberg when he’s in full on spectacle-mode, I really love his historical dramas.  If we’re lucky, The Post will be another Bridge Of Spies or Munich.  If he swings and misses here, at least we’ll get to see Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks on the big screen [...]

Show Of The Week

Due to timing and a post-Free Week absence of shows, my pick this week is actually for a show that’s next week.  Ha.  Anyhow, the great Destroyer is set to play the Mohawk on Monday, January 15, and that just seems like something you should definitely attend.  I can’t be there, so you’ll have to [...]

Quickdraw: Sufjan Stevens, Rhye, Lucy Dacus

Here’s a few gems that were released while the site was on break for the holidays.  Enjoy. Sufjan Stevens – Tonya Harding Over the last week I’ve listened to this pretty number from Sufjan Stevens (a lot), watched I, Tonya, and revisited 30 For 30: The Price Of Gold.  I think I may be obsessed [...]

Top 10 Films Of 2017

John’s Best Films of 2017 You know, 2017 was a pretty good one for film.  I know there were too many sequels, reboots and comic book adaptations, but overall I think quite a few good to great movies were released.  Hopefully 2018 will be as snazzy or better.  We’ll see.  Anyhow, below you’ll find my [...]

Titus Andronicus

Initially, I wasn’t quite sure what to think of the new single from Titus Andronicus.  It’s a heavy, punk ballad that’s nearly 10 minutes long, and it felt like a bit much here as I try to reacquaint myself with a post-holiday world.  I gave it some extra play-throughs though, and now I’m really into [...]

Movie Breakdown: Call Me By Your Name

Pre-Screening Stance: I haven’t seen anything but enormous praise for Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name.  Here’s hoping it really is one of the year’s best films. Post-Screening Ramble: Is it weird to want to note that if you like Brokeback Mountain or Moonlight then you’ll love Call Me By Your Name?  I suppose [...]

Movie Breakdown: All The Money In The World

Pre-Screening Stance: I no longer know what to expect from Ridley Scott.  It’s either forgettable stuff like Exodus and Alien: Covenant, or something award-worthy like The Martian.  All The Money In The World worries me a bit because it seemed to have zero buzz before Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey. Post-Screening Ramble: In case you [...]

Movie Breakdown: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

Pre-Screening Stance: Despite having a cast I generally like, I scoffed when Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was announced.  No one wants that!  Then I saw the first trailer and actually found myself chuckling.  Maybe I want that! Post-Screening Ramble: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is slow to start, but once it finds its footing, [...]
