Whitey Morgan and the 78s From Detroit, Michigan

Whitey Morgan and the 78s (site, myspace) made a swing through the Lone Star State a few weeks ago and we were lucky enough to catch them at the Continental Club. If you like Waylon, Merle and Buck, these guys are for you.

We were also fortunate enough to get the going up on's Live Music Archive. Enjoy.

If they come through your town, go see 'em.
Buy a record. Say hi.

Looking For A Taper In Austin, TX?

You're a band and you want someone to come out and record your show in Austin? There's any easy way to find yourself a taper in any market but the example here is for Austin.

Click on this link and it will show you a bunch of shows that have been taped and shared in Austin of late. There are lots of shows and lots of tapers recording those shows.

My recommendations:
-find a show taped at the venue you're performing and contact that taper
-find a band/performer whose sound is in the ballpark with yours and contact a taper of one of their shows
-above all, find a show whose sound you like and contact that taper

Best of luck. And if you get stuck, we here at the alt512 do know a some guys who know some guys.

Dedringers break up

Is there a Best New Artist curse with the AMP Awards? Less than a month after winning that recognition from Austin music pundits, Jonny Burke and Sean Faires have decided to go in different directions. All Dedringers shows on the current schedule will feature Burke and a new backup band.

Dedringers’ publicist Lorrie Lopes kept the door ctacked for a possible reconciliation. “They just want to do different things for awhile,” Lopes said. “Who knows what the future will hold.

After years of struggling, the New Braunfels band broke out big in Austin last year, garnering airplay on KGSR and moving a few thousand copies of “Sweetheart of the Neighborhood.” In recent weeks, however, the live shows have been inconsistent and there have been rumors of a rift between the two bandleaders.
