Music Notes: SRV and Black Flag

Two music notes that are somewhat related:

  • Steve Crossland points out that today is the 17th anniversary of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s death. I was driving from Dallas to Austin in a U-Haul truck that morning on my way to a rental house in Hyde Park to start my sophomore year at UT when I heard the news. Where were you?
  • At the other end of the music spectrum, but of roughly the same era, Tim League linked a post about hardcore shows in the early 80s at The Ritz theater he’s currently renovating for the new location of Alamo Downtown. The Left of the Dial post mentions the Idle Time fanzine, which has a ton of great photos from the punk scene in Austin at that time.

    I was about to start my Junior year at UT and was sitting in a car parked just off of Speedway and 35th. I remember how the sunlight streamed through the trees, I remember the shock. It was my “I will never forget where I was when I heard JFK was shot” moment.

    I was lamenting the demise of the Ritz and missing Craig Underwood.
