‘Be Here’ to Antone’s

'Be Here' to Antone's

The Austin Chronicle, KUT 90.5, and Palm Pictures hosted a special screening of Margaret Brown’s new documentary, Be Here To Love Me. The film, which opened to robust business in New York last week, opens in Austin this weekend. The packed screening, the first time the film screened in Austin since SXSW, welcomed music fans to watch this celebration of the late country/western singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. After the screening, everyone ran over to Antone’s for a post-screening concert:

(The lineup for the show was an all-star Townes Van Zandt tribute. Jimmie Dale Gilmore, pictured, served as the master of ceremonies. The artists included Knife in the Water, The Flatlanders, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, and more.)

(Playing host for the evening was Austin Chronicle marketing director Erin Collier, left, and Chronicle editor Louis Black. Aside from that, Louis is also one of the founders and directors of SXSW and an executive producer of Be Here To LOve Me.)

(Also at Antone’s for the party was Dan Hardicke, of The Austin Chronicle, and Danielle Thomas, of SXSW.)
