    Pill poppin' - Tablet calls it quits

    Though many were surprised by the unexpected break-up of Tablet last week--including some band members--it did not come as a surprise to Tablet frontman Steven Holt. "It was something I'd been thinking about for a long time," Holt says. "It wasn't an...

    Roadshows

    Action-packed There are artists who carry with them a sense (and sensibility) of time and place, like a living time capsule. In Muddy Waters, you can hear the great migration from the Deep South to the factories and mills of Chicago; in Dick Dale...

    Card sharp - Twenty years without bluffing at Poor David's Pub

    You'd think after 20 years, a nightspot would acquire ambience. Not Poor David's Pub: The day it opened at 1924 Greenville, it looked like storage space for broken restaurant furniture, and it still looks that way. There is no jukebox, no pool table,...

    Town and country - Whiskeytown and No Depression pour into town

    This is country music? An institution so distanced from its past that it won't allow living legends such as Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings airplay and ignores the heritage of past masters like the Carter Family? An industry that paves over its roots...

    R.O.C.K. in the Americas If you ever wax nostalgic for rock the way it used to be--concerts as major events, music that isn't afraid to act like it's willing to assume a major role in your life, passion rather than posing--you should look to the ...

    Economies of scale - Cake hopes that cutting a deal won't interfere with keeping it real

    What a difference a year makes. Last June 13, when Cake played the Galaxy Club, there were perhaps two dozen people in the audience--if you count each person who came and went and came back again twice. Local act UFOFU played an absolutely ragged...

    Can't see the forest - Tree-hugging compilation album takes on a Texas conglomerate

    Beercan boys - Pop punkers Pansy Division love sex, so they sing about it. A lot.

    Another dead hero - The gospel according to Bill Hicks

    I was lucky enough to first see Bill Hicks in a comedy club in Austin in the early '80s; he was a fresh voice in a medium already going stale and self-indulgent. Nobody else so perfectly captured the rage that came with having a brain during the Reag...
