A Humble Request to Live Music Archive Patrons

To anyone downloading or streaming shows from the Live Music Archive (site):

If you listen to something and you like it, give it a rating and a few words about your feelings on the show. On the flip side, if you don't like something, rate that too. Feel free to rate the artist's performance or the recording quality itself. Rate them separately, rate them together. It doesn't matter. But, damn it, just rate it. That's how other folks can figure out what's good and what's not.

Thanks in advance.

Deke Dickerson @ The Continental Club

Deke Dickerson (site, myspace) brought his rockabilly/surf show to Austin backed by Austinites Billy Horton on bass and Lisa Pankratz on drums. The trio put on a great set at the Continental Club last Thursday, April 24th. Have a listen. Really enjoyable set made moreso by Deke having to apologize to Lisa for the songs on the setlist.

Will Kimbrough @ The Stingaree Music Festival

Will Kimbrough (site, myspace) had a set at Hayes Carll's Stingaree Music Festival in Crystal Beach, Texas over the weekend. I've always loved Will solo stuff especially tunes like "Piece of Work", "I Don't Like It" and "God Send". He really comes through on this set with a few newer ones like "Another Train", "Hill Country Girl" and "Wings That You Can't See" and wholly reaffirms his status as a great solo performer and fantastic songwriter.

If you don't listen to anything else, check out the last track which is the aforementioned "Wings That I You Can't See."

Quotes From The Show Part III

"Thank you for being you. We hope that you live forever. We would argue that you already have if that not be your wish. Too late. You're screwed."
-Shane Walker (of the Gougers), 2007.06.07

Quotes From The Show Part II

"Folk music is just kind of a short abbreviated name for thievery."
-Danny Schmidt, 2008.04.09

"It's hard for us to imagine because we come from a civilized place, America, where here you just learn the guitar and the money comes in."
-Paul Curreri, 2008.04.09

The Goings-On in The ATX This Week

Lots of great shows in the line-up this week in Austin. Check the calendar above for the full details but I'm planning hitting about 1/2 of what's on the calendar.

Here's the deal(s) for me at least:
Monday 4/7 is a day of mowing the lawn but if you like Waylon Jennings
830p @ The Saxon Pub is the Waymores (Waylon tribute band)

5p @ Waterloo Records w/ free Shiner
8p @ Stubb's BBQ (inside), Scott Nolan is playing after Hayes (and he's definitely worth hearing)

Wednesday 4/9 I may check out Danny Scmidt
830p @ The Cactus Cafe, tickets are 7$

Thursday 4/10 is my day of rest

Friday 4/11 has plenty of options but I'm going to Flipnotics
8p Damon Bramblett @ The Dry Creek Cafe
9p Brock Zeman & Dan Walsh @ Flipnotics on Barton Springs
9p Butch Hancock @ The Cactus Cafe

Saturday night 4/12 I'm checking out the Gougers
10p @ Cheatham Street Warehouse

To borrow a quote James William Buffett, "if I don't die by Thursday, I'll be roarin' Friday night."
