Stranger, Older Things

Fort Worth Weekly
Nostalgia has been pacifying/plaguing us for centuries (see: The Odyssey), but looking back has never been as up in our grills as it is now. And that’s because the smart kids in class kept looking forward. “Old” records, ...

Ridglea Room a Big Tease?

HearSay
The Star-Telegram recently said that Jerry Shults has almost completed work on a key piece of rock ’n’ roll real estate. A venue inside the Ridglea Theater, the historic building purchased by the Gas Pipe magnate in 2010, t...

Jacob Furr’s Sierra Madre

HearSay

Whence Yon Lyrics?

HearSay

Aska: When Everything Was “Local”

HearSay
There was a time when Aska was my favorite “local” band. A short period of time. About a month or so. But still. A time. It was about a year after 9/11. I had just moved to Fort Worth from Houston. I was on my own, with no ...

The Cush: Supernormal

HearSay
I’ve always had a soft spot for The Cush. The reasons are many-splendored and colorful, but I won’t bore you with them here. Let’s just say that, like Gabrielle and Burette Douglas, the husband-and-wife team behind the ba...
