    Out Here - The Nixons

    The Nixons Latest Thing (KOCH Records<) MCA Records should be kicking itself right about now, because Latest Thing, for worse or worse, should be a hit. Not that much of it is any good, but hey, that's what's called quality these days. I...

    Critics' Picks - Warren Zevon

    Warren Zevon Only a few weeks ago, Warren Zevon released his finest album since, well, let's just say 1987's Sentimental Hygiene. (There have been great records since then, among them 1991's Mr. Bad Example, and songs better than the albums on whi...

    Critics' Picks - Suicide Machines

    Suicide Machines There has always been grumbling about the Suicide Machines. After releasing two demo cassettes, Green World and The Essential Kevorkian, in their native Detroit, the group shortened their name from Jack Kevorkian and The Suicide M...

    Plain folk - Roger McGuinn, still a Byrd man, doesn't wanna be a rock 'n' roll star

    There are more people outside the club than in it. Dozens of them loiter about as they try to catch a whiff of what's cooking behind those closed doors. They lean against the outside walls, putting their ears to the bricks to hear just a little of wh...

    Forever got shorter - Braid's too-brief history is remembered on Movie Music Vol. One and Two

    No one told Bob Nanna that trying to watch 365 movies in a year was a good idea. In fact, most of his friends attempted to talk him out of it by trying to lure him out of the house and the theaters to do something, anything, else. But for Nanna, who ...

    Thanks, but no thanks - D Magazine has an interesting take on the local music scene

    The saying goes something along the lines of "no press is bad press," but that maxim is surely put to the test by the cover story in the April edition of D Magazine, "Dallas City Limits." Hey, no reason to argue with someone claiming that Dallas' mus...

    Scene, heard - DOMA 2000 (of course), Baboon takes it live; Elliot Smith helps The Toadies; and much, much more

    To set the record straight, no, it is not a mistake if your band or venue does not appear on the 2000 Dallas Observer Music Awards ballot. What it means is that you, as deserving as you think you are, were not nominated. It does not matter if you adv...

    Out There - Lou Reed

    Lou Reed Ecstasy (Reprise Records) Last time out, Lou Reed played the sweetheart and crank. Set the Twilight Reeling -- the title felt cozy and not a little defiant: Here's Uncle Lou, growing old and soft, his worn edges now tattered by t...

    Out Here - Gropius

    Gropius Indelicate (Self-released) I am not completely convinced that Gropius' new album isn't one long song, one tiresome, meandering, second-encore rendition of "Gold Dust Woman," or maybe "Gypsy." (Actually, anything by Stevie Nicks w...

    Critics' Picks - The Flaming Lips

    The Flaming Lips A few weeks ago, the Dallas Observer came into possession of an e-mailed memorandum, ostensibly written by Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, describing plans for the band's sets on the second leg of its North American tour. At ...

    A mother of a father - Bo Diddley created rock and roll -- now, where's his check?

    The history books are written with his blood and the blood of half a dozen men just like him, fathers sacrificed on the altar. They created this thing called rock and roll, snatched it from thin air and gave it shape and breath and voice, and then th...

    SXSW Diaries - A thousand bands + a dozen parties + one cigarette lighter = average South By Southwest

    You can go home again, but chances are you'll get lost, turned around, embarrassed that such simple directions can result in an hour-long marathon of wrong choices and missed streets and an overbearing amount of cursing. You can go home again, but ho...

    SXSW Diaries - The smell remains the same

    It was only appropriate that my South By Southwest experience end like this -- stuck in the rain and hail, waiting for a cab, praying to God the lightning would strike me dead before the band inside finishes. Inside the Continental Club on South Cong...

    SXSW Diaries - Get outta here!

    The storm blew in and rained down on Austin with a swift fury, for the second year in a row, on the second day of the South By Southwest musical dog-and-pony show. Perhaps it was a warning from above to the festival organizers for trying to shoehorn ...

    Northern devils - Did local bands make good at South By Southwest?

    Best Case scenario - Rhett Miller makes Wilonksy's shit list

    I had my chance, and I blew it. Actually, Rhett Miller blew it for me. "Robert, Janeane. Janeane, Robert." That's how he introduced me to Janeane Garofalo -- in a split second, in so little time she barely had time to acknowledge my trembling presenc...
