In August, 2005, Michael Barnes of the Austin American Statesman visited a 100 (more or less) Austin music venues.  September 1st, XLent (weekly entertainment magazine of the Statesman) ran the first of two articles profiling 100 music venues.   Here's his review of Giddy Ups!


"Way out in Manchaca Land is a real bar,
a happy, slightly rowdy place where the
band plays just t'other side of the pool
table for people who really work with
their hands. It's a place where Shiner is
considered a premium beer, where
barbecue is served from a van in the
parking lot and folks slip next door for
shots at Stardust. If it gets too loud inside,
there's an open-ended shed to one side
and a picnic table in the field out back.
The bartender can introduce you around."
