GRO: Country or Rock? Does It Matter?

HearSay
Is Green River Ordinance getting screwed? But maybe getting screwed means you’ve finally arrived. (Maybe?) Here’s the truth. Radio country sucks. It’s just as bad as pop-metal and ghetto-fabulous (c)rap. Genre music –...


Fort Worth soul shakers Feletha Black will be among the headliners of Women for Women on February 27 at Lola's Saloon.

Women for Women Rock 2016

HearSay
An inconvenient truth: The Fort Worth music scene, the rock scene in particular, is very white and very male. Why is this important? Experiencing a song –– or a painting or a film or a ballet –– by someone completely di...

Big Time Lyric Le’velle

HearSay
Now that Facebook appears to be going the way of Twitter, which has already gone the way of MySpace (in my peon’s mind, at least), I recently started an Instagram page. What the hell, I thought. I make art. Occasionally. I ha...

Solo Lucci + TUC = Big Time!

HearSay
In my column last week –– don’t fall asleep! I promise this story will get better! –– I discussed the virtues of staying in the Fort to reach the next level as opposed to relocating to some established industry power-...

Dreamy Life Records: Bring It

Hearsay
Let’s go ahead and admit it. Rockers, writers, and scenesters outside Fort Worth may think our city is pretty cool for one reason. We have Dreamy Life Records, and they don’t. The lovechild of two local labels, Dreamy Sound...

Top 10 Local Songs of ’15

Well. Maybe more like “One Pompous Ass’ Favorites.”
Hearsay
Once again, a wealth of exceptional tuneage exploded from the great 817 this year. On a purely technical level, there were at least –– at least –– 538 good-to-great songs. Can’t wait for next year’s Music Awards. Th...

Tidals, Wire Nest, Go!

Hearsay
I’ve got to admit. I’ve been underselling Fort Worth for years now, labeling my adopted city a “cultural backwater” not directly –– never directly –– but through the negative spaces between my words. Where are a...

Huffer: Sad Times Are Here to stay

Hearsay
Fort Worth metalheads are so gauche. Someone needs to tell the dudes in Huffer that no one says, “CD release party” anymore. It’s “album” or “LP” release. Losers. Anyway, Huffer is having a “CD release party” ...
