Comedic Improv

Hearsay
Last week (“Missile Mens,” Sept. 16), I wrote that there’s nothing local music-y to do on Tuesday nights other than hit The Moon (2911 W. Berry St., 817-926-9600) and listen to frontman Big Mike Richardson, dr...


Missile Mens

Hearsay
I almost don’t want to write what I’m about to, because I don’t want to invite the public to share a pleasure that currently belongs to only a select few of us, but there’s now something to do on Tuesday...



Calhoun Redux

Hearsay
It was only a couple of months ago that Calhoun, the quintet spearheaded by singer-songwriter Tim Locke (Grand Street Cryers, Blue Sky Black) and co-songwriter Jordan Roberts, elected to disband. About a month later, though, Lo...


America’s Original Art Form

Hearsay

PayRadioPay

Hearsay
PlayRadioPlay, the nom de musique of 19-year-old electro-pop singer-songwriter Dan Hunter, is taking an unusual though creative approach to recording his next album (actually two albums: one full of B-sides, the other of new or...



God Bless Us, Every One

Hearsay
OK, just for a goof. How much would someone have to pay you to go to the Sean Hannity Freedom Concert featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, the Charlie Daniels Band, and Lee Greenwood? A hundred bucks? Three hundred? How about nine zillio...


Vinyl Emporium

Hearsay
Even though vinyl started its comeback in earnest about 10 years ago, not a lot of people I know own record players. iPods? Yes. Turntables? Uh-uh. Flipping through crates upon crates of albums at the recently opened Doc’...
