Ernie Durawa, Drummer Extrodinaire!

It is with great pleasure, Groovee Fortune presents the new web page for an amazing drummer, Ernie Durawa!!!! Wait till you see the list of people he’s played with…Texas TornadosWillie Nelson, Freddy Fender, Dough Sahm, Johnny GimbleJohn Belushi (I’m gonna put my bee suit on right now!) are just some of my favorites! He teaches Drum Lessons too!

Ernie has been so easy to work with and I am very smitten with his pet, Pig Floyd! That pig gets to have more fun than me partying at the Continental club, hanging out at the Hilton! Get out and see Ernie play really soon!

Thanks for the referral Jagger Peyton

Hell Marys love the Cathedral of Junk. Save it!

After more than 20 years of life, the Cathedral of Junk is not up to code. Wonder what cranky neighbor or busy body came after this “Keep Austin Weird” artistic landmark.  Maybe a fat cat has an original condo idea for this fella’s backyard?

While I believe there is a solution being worked on right now to Save the Cathedral, it’s ridiculous for a city that boasts “Live Music Capital of the World” and “Keep Austin Weird” to be so reckless with it’s creative types. I don’t recall anyone building a musicians/bartender/sound guy condo downtown so the people who make their money on 6th st or Red River could walk to work. I haven’t forgotten about the Intel building despite it’s recent strickening from the Austin skyline. The artists even converted that eye soar into a work of beauty with aerial performance.

Okay…I’m stepping off my soapbox and want to show the Celesta Danger photos of  the Hell Marys at the Cathedral of Junk which won an Austin Chronicle 2006 Best of Austin Award and has 4.5 stars out of 5 stars on Yelp.  There are more photos but these are just some random ones I found. LEAVE the Cathedral alone! Geezzz! Please post a comment if you have any useful links.

Jackalope, Chupacabra Cantina, Jack Pizza & Beezlebuns for SXSW!!!!

If you are looking for some great food, cold beer & a fantastic staff for SXSW 2010 head on down to The Jackalope.


It’s my favorite bar of 6th Street and one of Groovee Fortune‘s most AWESOME and long time clients! Don’t buy me a Helldorado! You can have one! But I would love a burger, chicken wing or pulled pork sandwich! The Jackalope menu will be shorter for SXSW.

Can’t find what you want at The Jackalope, just head to the front of the bar and order yourself a crispy beer battered pizza at Jack’s Pizza.

In the mood for LEGENDARY Tex-Mex? Head right next door to Chupacabra Cantina. You need to try the Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka frozen drink. YUM! Yes there is a Cabrito (aka Goat) Burger!!!


If you spent your last dime on SXSW and rock n roll, never fear! Beelzebuns is right out on the street offering tasting, affordable items.

So during a long day of computer nerding (which I am highly in favor of), watching 200 films in 2 days or rocking your socks off, head to the corner of Trinity and 6th to fill you tummy and relax amongst velvet paintings of naked women, stuffed jackalopes and chupacabras. Not to mention some rollergirls and interesting local folks.  If we are using a 5 star scale, I give it all a 6! Especially since it is the only bar to create its own currency. If you find a wooden coin with a red jackalope stamped on it, that is good for a free drink!

CHEERS to SXSW 2010! Let’s turn this town upside down and PARTY!!!
