From the September 17, Austin American-Statesman – Joe Gross had this to say about Bob Dylan in Zilker Park for ACL:
“Hey, man, you wanna come back and do five shows at the Paramount, you have my money. You wanna come back and do Stubbs, I’ll give you a chance. But in a field at ACL? Never again.”
I have always said that no matter what the show, it’s always going to be better at the Paramount. Thanks for making my case Joe. Oh, and by the way, the offer stands Mr. Dylan. 5 nights whenever you want to come. Same holds true for the other untouchables.
On a separate note, I have decided to bring sexy back. I mean, Justin Timberlake made a run at it but I don’t think he ever quite got there. So, from this point forward, I think the Paramount is Ground Zero for sexy in Austin… great shows, great talent, great drinks… all in the sexiest venue in Austin. At least our St. Cecilia is sexier than the Goddess of Liberty on top of the Capitol.
