AUSTIN – When I walked into J. Black’s on W. 6th Street on Saturday, I had to check my eyes to make sure I hadn’t somehow been transported to Hailey’s or some other Denton music venue – the place was full of North Texas musicians.

The reason for the local love-in was Spune‘s day party, which featured the Orbans, Seryn, Telegraph Canyon, Sarah Jaffee, Doug Burr and others. Also on hand were the guys from Pan-Ector, a Denton screening and design company. They were busy most of the day making T-shirts for listeners.

Each act played about 30 minutes – just enough time to give the non-North Texans in the house a taste of the scene. Telegraph Canyon drew the biggest crowd from the sets that I saw. Sounds like word is trickling south.

At some point on Monday, I’ll be on KXT talking about the week that was at SXSW. I’m not sure exactly when that will be just yet, but when I find out, I’ll update this post. On second thought, just tune in all day and listen for the guy who sounds like he’s been staying out ’til 2 a.m. for a week straight.

    When rock becomes everything it started out opposing, time to oppose it.
    For me I’m looking forward to the NPR Challenge. here’s the details
    Does NPR stand for quality in music coverage? Not according to art revolutionary, musician, and editor of the zine Musea ,Tom Hendricks who has challenged the NPR music staff to a 200 song music challenge – the biggest in history. Hendricks calls it the “Trendy Versus Quality” 200 song challenge. He’s suggested that NPR can choose any 200 recent songs covered on NPR versus his best of world music on the internet list. http://wp.me/p5S9X-36. Music lovers are asked to voice comments and join in the music challenge and make world history.
    I challenge NPR music writers, and both NPR music blogs: All Songs Considered, and Monitor Mix, to a musical challenge.(Or any music media source for that matter). You present your best 100-200 new songs, versus my BIG LIST, first best of world music from the net, list .
