BEST BETS
by Peter Blackstock
Austin American Statesman; Austin, Tex.; Jan 14, 1989

Art from Harlem

Harlem Renaissance: Art of Black America, a major exhibition of the works of five Black American artists of the 1920s and '30s, opens today at the LBJ Library. The exhibit, presented in association with Laguna Gloria Art Museum, features works by Aaron Douglas, William H. Johnson, Palmer Hayden, Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller and James Van Der Zee. The display runs through Feb. 26. Library hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission is free. Rock around the clock

Ever had a craving to stay up for 34 hours and do nothing but listen to live music? Well, here's your big chance. Starting at 5 p.m. today and concluding at 3 a.m. Monday, Steamboat nightclub on Sixth Street will have a Rock Against Drugs marathon that won't be over until more than 30 bands have played. If all goes as planned, the event will be recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records under the category of "longest continuous rock concert by more than one artist.'' For a list of participating bands, check the Nightlife listings on pages D8 and D9 of today's Time Out section. On the town

Former Faces member Ronnie Lane, now living in Austin and playing with a lineup featuring some of our town's premier musicians, is at the Continental Club tonight. Alamo Choir and Luxury For Less also are on the bill. Hey Moe, where's Joe? Moe Bandy, now performing on his own after several hit records with Joe Stampley, is at the Lumberyard, with Kelly Willis & Radio Ranch opening. Poi Dog Pondering, an "impossible to classify" band according to Billboard magazine, defies pigeonholing once again tonight at Texas Tavern, with Shoulders opening. A couple of acts are in town from Dallas: Rev. Horton Heat is at Hole in the Wall, and Donny Ray Ford & the Honky Tonkers are at the Black Cat Lounge with Teddy & the Talltops. Mark Luke Daniels plays a release party for his new tape Bare Bones and Railroad Tones at Colorado Street Cafe with Ben Notgrass. Best of the rest

The Texas Longhorns play host to the Longhorn National Swimming and Diving Invitational at the Texas Swimming Center beginning tonight at 6. Or you can wade through the tidal wave of household items at the the City Coliseum, where various patrons have pooled their resources for the Citywide Garage Sale. A $1.50 admission fee (it's free for kids under 12) allows you to browse for bargains from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Sunday. If you're more into garage music than garage sales, take note that tickets for the Feb. 3 Erwin Center concert featuring heavy metal heroes Metallica and Queensryche go on sale this morning at all UT TicketMaster locations. Call 477-6060 for more information.- Peter Blackstock
