    Roadshows

    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...

    Son of Blind Joe Death Few career arcs break the way Leo Kottke's did--starting out as a so-folk-he's-jazz prodigy on 6 and 12 String Guitar, his definitive (and once ubiquitous, though now out of print) 1970 Takoma release. Kottke was at first a...

    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...

    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

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

    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...
