    Lunar eclipse - The Moon Festival searches for chance's bright light

    The Moon Festival churns out an impressive brand of vintage pop music, but, apparently, they can't dance. At least not the delicately timed ballet required by the Dallas musical community, where their efforts to fit in resemble nothing so much as Sha...

    Reign of toads - The Toadies tell why Bush deserves to die

    A red warning light is glowing above the doorway at Last Beat studios, indicating that recording is under way. If you were to ease the door open, you'd find the Toadies camped around an ice chest full of Budweiser, and immediately feel a sense of eas...

    Come on feel the Noyze - Local group gets a gospel sound that's contemporary yet sanctified

    The grungy guy in the practice room talking to Sharon Brown, publicist for the Dallas gospel group Greg O'Quin and Joyful Noyze, is quite a contrast to the rest of the folks gathered for rehearsal. He's tall, lanky, and white; the sides of his head a...

    Vast stretches of miles between Jimmy LaFave is the kind of artist a category like "folk-rock" was invented for: a clever, empathetic artist who knows that if you lean into it, tried and true need not mean dusty. LaFave may be the master of exist...

    Pop mart - South by Southwest '97: Will guitars give up the ghost? Yes and no, but mostly no

    If you live in Austin, it's easy to grow weary of that town's annual South by Southwest (SXSW) music conference: Downtown becomes impassable, restaurants and clubs are clogged, and the myriad ways in which the shindig makes clear the differences betw...

    Soul survivor - Four decades after his first record, Solomon Burke is still in the studio and in God's arms

    The rain and cold don't stop Solomon Burke. He's an hour late for the rendezvous, in the parking lot of the red-ribboned church at the intersection of Franklin and Highland in Los Angeles in the heart of Hollywood, and he hastily apologizes for the t...

    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...

    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,...
