Buzz Mill Coffee is turning Midway Field House, which shuttered abruptly last week, into a music venue and event space sporting a lumberjack motif (of course) as reported by Austin 360. The East Riverside address also used to be the home of Beauty Ballroom and an iteration of Antone’s, fittingly next door to the relocated Emo's. Sabala’s company Grizzly Discovery opened sports bar Midway in 2014. Buzz Mill is working on opening a second location of the coffee shop near South Congress Avenue, which has been delayed.

Prince accepted a standing ovation as he strolled out carrying a cane and rocking an Afro to present the 2015 Grammy for album of the year. Then he stole the show with a line that reminded everyone he was more than just a pop superstar; he was a black activist.
Prince created a new sound by fusing black American musical styles with white rock, and deeply influenced the current generation of artists, music experts said. The US music icon was found dead, aged 57, at his studio complex outside his home city of Minneapolis on Thursday. Philip Priestley, who made a 2008 documentary comparing the careers of Prince and Michael Jackson, said that growing up in Minneapolis forced Prince to create a new sound, as the Minnesota city was simply "not on the map" for black music.
