Jeff Liles has informed us as to the identity of "juabeaux," who's been posting all the archival footage of bands performing in Deep Ellum way back when. But till we talk to our YouTube'n archivist and find out what he plans on doing with what we hear is an estimable collection of footage -- including, Jeff tells us, silent Super 8 movies of the Red Hot Chili Peppers playing Theatre Gallery -- well, we'll keep it to ourselves. But "juabeaux" is back at it today, this time with footage of Shoulders and The Jesus Lizard at Trees. Shoulders ... Jesus, haven't through about that band since I went to the University of Texas in the late 1980s. Here's some Lizard -- Yow, y'all. --Robert Wilonsky
