A message from Alejandro:


Sorry for the late entry as this year marks my last in hosting and curating the Saturday party at Maria’s Taco Xpress and the Sunday show at The Continental. This was a hard decision to make. I have had an amazing time putting these shows together and I am very proud of all the artists who have played over the years; the friendship and support of Steven Wertheimer, Celeste Martin, Maria Corbalan and Fernando Ezeta who are family, and all their hardworking staffs. And the beautiful, beautiful art throughout the years by Rob Gasper creating a history of amazing posters.
We started at Maria’s in 1997 when it was still a trailer, a space in between the two buildings which eventually became the Taco Xpress. The stage was on the ground on a blanket. The first people to play were Charlie and Will Sexton, Stephen Bruton, Hunt Sales, all South Austin people.
The Sunday shows started in the beer garden at La Zona Rosa in 1991 and then moved to the bigger stage at La Zona where the Alejandro Escovedo Orchestra performed every closing Sunday night. From there we moved over to the Continental Club in 1999, where we have been ever since. We have created a grand tradition, trying to bring new acts along with older acts, reflecting a broad overview of artists who represent the Continental Club, Maria’s Taco Xpress and the spirit of early Austin.


My dear and talented friend Dahvid Garza has agreed to take over the curation of future shows so that the tradition continues. I feel that Dahvid will be sensitive to the goals of these shows and their spirit. When we first started the Sunday nights, they were benefits for the Austin Child Guidance Center; next we focused on helping musicians in need. And then I was introduced to the Palapa Society through Peter Buck. The Palapa Society is an organization which builds schools and libraries for children in Southern Baja; and they are one of the leading efforts for relief and restoration after Hurricane Odile. I feel that the money is going to a very righteous cause.


I thank you for your involvement and support it’s going to be a grand weekend!
Alejandro Escovedo

Hello everyone!
• SXSW is in full swing and it’s been a surprisingly less stressful one for nearly everyone! Here’s a link to the complete list of Austin Music Award Winners! All three of our Austin venues were well-represented. Our 2014 residency bands either placed in the Top 10 or won in several categories, including:

Blues/Soul/Funk: Peterson Brothers Band, Roxy Roca, Tameca Jones
Country/Bluegrass: Dale Watson & his Lone Stars
Jazz:: Church on Monday (Winner), Jitterbug Vipers, Ephraim Owens, Brannen Temple
U18: Peterson Brothers Band, Painted Redstarts
Female Vocals: Tameca Jones
Guitar: Redd Volkaert (Winner), Slim Richey
Horns: Ephraim Owens, Elias Haslanger, Hard Proof, Roxy Roca
Male Vocals: Malford Milligan (Winner), Dale Watson
Songwriter: James McMurtry
Strings: Warren Hood (Winner), Kurt Baumer

Best Music Venue, Club Sound, and Live Music Venue: The Continental Club placed in the Top 10 in all three categories.
Music Business Hall of Fame: Steve Wertheimer
New Club: C-Boy’s Heart & Soul in South Austin, tied for the WIN with The Roost in North Austin.
Ongoing Music Residency: Church on Monday (Winner) Mondays in the Gallery, James McMurtry Wednesdays in the Club, Toni Price Tuesdays in the Club, Tameca Jones Thursdays in the Gallery, and Jon Dee Graham Wednesdays in the Club. Of the Top 10 spots, our residency musicians took half of them.
Congratulations to all of you! We are SO proud to be your home!


• The 14th Annual Lonestar Round Up is right around the corner & we’ve got a fantastic lineup for you this year, including 5 nights of Southern Culture On The Skids at The Continental Club, Jimmie Vaughan at C-Boy’s, plus Wanda Jackson, and James Burton at the Expo Center and at The Continental Club! We’ll also host a Book Release Party for The Jalopy Journal #3 and All Tore Up: Texas Hot Rod Portraits at C-Boy’s Heart & Soul. There will be several events going on around town, including the annual Garage Crawl, which features a caravan to the Dell Children’s Hospital to let the kids there have a look at the rides before heading over to the Expo Center. Affiliated shows will also be going on at Giddy Ups, Austin Speed Shop and Top Notch Burgers. The weekend wraps up with a slow cruise to the Oasis. It just can’t be beat.


• Have you picked up James McMurtry’s latest CD, Complicated Game, yet? It’s getting an avalanche of press & heady reviews. Speaking of releases, Peterson Brothers Band may be releasing their debut recording around April 1, and Casper Rawls’ first (can you beleive it??) CD will be feted on Sunday, April 5 at the Club during Planet Casper.


• James McMurtry will be touring across the U.S. for the month of April, so the incomparable Tish Hinojosa will be filling in for him on Tuesday evenings at 8:30pm in the Gallery beginning April 7.
