Reagan James: Unique, Unfortunately

HearSay
This is not a knock on our rock, country, rap, folk, or jazz. Fort Worth is incredibly lucky that so many of its talented brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors, enemies and other bartenders, funnel their creative energy t...

Fun, Fun, Fun ’til …

HearSay
No. 1 in big time college football, Alabama also fights on! fights on! fights on! every year for the top spot in homicides, poverty, obesity, joblessness, and racism –– the University of Alabama desegregated its sororities ...

South by Fort Worth

GRO: Country or Rock? Does It Matter?

HearSay
Is Green River Ordinance getting screwed? But maybe getting screwed means you’ve finally arrived. Kinda? 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...
