Bob Schneider – “Swimming in the Sea”

 

When you hear ‘veteran singer-songwriter’, it’s easy to imagine a laid-back, acoustic troubadour, so that makes Bob Schneider’s authentic rock tone hit that much harder.  While there probably isn’t a Bob Schneider metal album in our future (oh, but how there should be), the songs throughout his entire catalog, including 2013’s Burden Proof, seem to draw a consistent punch, even when the pace slows down introspectively.  Schneider is consistently evolving too – check the auto-tuned vocals and electronic beat that backs the inventive “John Lennon”.  I put all of this first because it’s a given for most Austinites and SXSW visitors are already well aware that Schneider is a killer songwriter, consistently putting lyrical content first to rich and giving results.  Really like what you hear?  You can check out a marathon, 12-hour (!) Bob Schneider set on April 26 at the Saxon Pub.  That should do.

comedian Buster Keaton caught off guard by a photographer at the Santa Fe train station shortly after separating from Natalie 

When I was about 13 years old, I visited my sister in Seattle.  She lived right on The Ave.  This was 1974.  A theater was having a Buster Keaton film festival.  I went alone.  It started late.  The basement place it was showing at held about 40 people. Some of them were tripping on acid or maybe shrooms.  I think they showed 5 or 6 movies.  The people tripping laughed the whole time.  I now they were sore the next day.
