Bobby Whitlock & CoCo Carmel -- Saxon Pub -- January 5, 2013

While many of Austin venues were advertising the annual Free Week in January, a number of us were willing to pay a little more than usual to see Bobby Whitlock and CoCo Carmel play at their usual spot, The Saxon Pub.  They don’t normally play Saturday night, but it was a great idea.  And the place was full.

Bobby, as probably everyone knows, was an integral part of the Derek and the Dominoes Layla and Assorted Love Songs legacy recording,…

Mystery Monday -- El Mercado -- Austin; Nov 26, 2012

Yep, South Austin remains a special place. Even Monday nights can be magical. Even if the word

“bummer” is associated with them.  This past Monday night found us at one of our regular spots, “our local bar” if you will -- El Mercado on South First.  It’s been our fallback spot for years.  It’s where we go driving straight from the airport after a trip out of town.  It’s where we go for a great “Mexican martini” and some of the best salsa in town.   It’s not, however,…

Locally based ladies, The Trishas, opened to a full house, using some of the inspiring material this young group has put together so far. Savannah Welch, Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, and…

Find more photos like this on Americana and roots music - No Depression



Having done all but one of the nine ACL festivals, our gang of troubadors has an overall game plan, as you might imagine. And it usually centers around activity at one main “camp” set up early at one of the primary stages for each day, followed by side trips galore. This year the music was so diverse, some of us… Continue

At the end of this year’s RockyGrass Festival in Lyons, Colorado, I heard the following: “It was beyond real this year, “It was an 11 on a scale of 1 – 10”, and “It was beyond category” (the last comment from my husband, a dedicated Tour de France follower). I agree. It was darn near as perfect as… Continue

Joe Ely was talking to Doug Moyes, from our local venue, The Backyard, asking who was going to have a benefit for Haiti. And Doug told him, “You are.” Once Joe found appropriate phone numbers, he and his manager, Lance, put out the calls. At first he heard nothing. Then, as he put it, the show went from a 2 hour to a 4… Continue
