Well, time’s a’wastin’, to quote the great American cartoon character, Snuffy Smith. Thus, this is now a VERY SHORT report, but with all the photographs from the night.

Round 1, Week 2 of the White Elephant Saloon’s 10th yearly Texas Music Showdown was Wednesday, Feb. 18, and included the front-line duo of Larry Sumpter and Dan Schwein from the LDJ Band, Mark Shelton & The Greater Good, and Twisted Pistols. All made excellent showings.

Judges were Brett Dillon, KHYI and the contest organizer; Nick Verzosa, singer/songwriter; and Bodie Powell, also singer/songwriter. After each band performed their three originals and one cover song (plus a full song as a sound check and without points), the judges selected Twisted Pistols to move
