First off a cop got shot and killed. I am in no way trying to comment on that. That sucks and there is no other way to put it. This shooting happened last year. And it took a Badge Bunny turn. Apparently the cop that was shot in front of a Badge Bunny. He reportedly had been screwing her and met...View Topic - Replies (6)

Any "no-brain" Austin bars or pubs to check out with live music? Point of clarification, my wife and I are early 40's. So places where face tattoo people go, or places where a mosh pit would have broke out if it were 1993 are out. Walking distance from The Driskill is preferable. ...View Topic - Replies (6)

Anybody with thoughts on it? I picked one up and strummed it at Guitar Center. It is used. It's $399? I loved the sound and its action was low. I know any guitar guy can "set up" mine off a low action. I looked it up online and they look to be above $399. Am I missing something? Guitar Cen...View Topic - Replies (2)
