soundfounder has been hyping this up for a moment, and now that moment is finally here… after securing a digital domain, rounding up talent, and putting all of the logistical ducks in a row, soundfounder has proudly introduced the world to Other Radio Texas, an online radio channel designed to cater to underground Texas creators and those that support them. Out of the many people in line to assist on the air, I was one of the lucky ones selected, so be sure to keep an open for mixes from my show Escapism on occasion. Big things are in store for the radio station, so keep yourself locked in for details and updates!

The Austin theater scene has received a breath of fresh air with the March/April run of Lisa B. Thompson‘s masterpiece, Underground. The play stars Marc Pouhe’ and Jeffery Da’Shade Johnson as former college revolutionaries caught up in the respective modern day roles, but with shadows of the past threatening to determine their future paths. The play is wonderfully directed by Rudy Ramirez, and if you get the chance, you should certainly see it.
A statement from Death In Amber:
Death in Amber is the opportunity for hidden, forgotten gems to get their due. Thanks to the internet, there is an ability to get those songs out so that people can hear them again, or for the first time.
Many musicians have spent a lot of time, money and effort recording their bands only to never have the opportunity to showcase that music to people. Bands break up, change names and members, and disappear, many times leaving a closet full of recordings that never see the light of day. Death in Amber gives it to you. Played. Captured. Preserved.
