HOLIDAY HAPPENIN’S | The Last Waltz Revisited, Breakaway Records

Susan George | SCOUT By Jennifer Rose Smith

 

Happy short week, everyone! The long weekend is upon us, and there’s a few fun things happening in Austin you should know about: 1. The old gang from Momo’s has teamed up to perform their reenactment of The Last Waltz again, but this year the concert will be held at Antone’s downtown. The show is tonight — doors at 7:30, show starts at 8:00, tickets can be purchased at the door or online here. General admissions is $12, or you can get a VIP table upstairs for $75. 2. Breakaway Records on North Loop is having a 15% off everything-in-the-store sale this Friday. Normally I would rather eat bark than even think about leaving my house on “black friday”, but I may make an exception for this. The sale is from 11am–8pm this Friday. Also of interest: Breakaway Records started a boutique re-issue label, Drop Shadow Records this past spring. So far they’ve produced one debut record featuring two singles originally recorded for the Wildcat label, out of San Antonio, Texas. Maybe I’ll snag one on Friday. I actually think they’re both pretty cool. Give ‘em a digital spin below. And Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    I recognized the name Jose Jimenez on the record and remembered he was one of my favorite characters from TV in the 60′s. He was on the Steve Allen Show, Ed Sullivan Show and others; one of the parts he played was that of an astronaut. I still laugh when I think of how he said his famous line,
    “My name – Jose Jimenez”.
