Super-Groups Aplenty

Hearsay
Just a couple of months ago, several –– barely a handful –– of well-known local indie-rock bands broke up, which greatly alarmed the writers at the Star-T and Dallas Observer. The Star-T begged for the bleeding to stop,...


A Failsafe Rowdy Weekend

Hearsay
Resort to Failsafe is an Aledo band that’s going places, a statement that I freely make not because I just read a glowing article about the band in some national magazine or because I just heard one of the band’s songs on t...
