FWRA IV

Hearsay
Can a body criticize a festival that’s only in its fourth year? Because that’s what I’m fittin’ t’do. (But not really.) The fest in question is Fort Worth Rock Assembly, in which North Texas original bands (most from ...

Welcome, Wayside Ballroom

Hearsay
Right now, The Wayside Ballroom is a mess. Electrical cables dangle from the “ceiling,” machinery and tools are strewn across the dust-and-debris-covered floor, and at least 10 metric tons of musical gear weighs down the st...

Pimpadelic: Still Hear

Hearsay
A long time ago, I was close friends with a guy who was pretty deep into the local punk/metal scene, which was helpful to me as a relative newbie to town. Name a person in a hardcore or thrash band, and my buddy either knew tha...

Wrecked Room

Hearsay

Bosque Brown frontwoman Mara Lee Miller deserves more than snark from an old jerk. Right?

Have a Snarky Weekend

Hearsay
“Snarky.” That’s what the big bosses from out of town called this new attitude that we eager young writers were supposed to apply to our prose. This was the late 1990s, when alt-weeklies were just starting to go mainstrea...

Blues Around the Clock

Hearsay
I’ve done my research. I know. No matter how young you are, you will not be the youngest person at the Bedford Blues & BBQ Festival this Friday-Sunday. My facts? Get comfy. A few weeks after I moved to Fort Worth from Hou...

Happy Birthday Next Weekend, S&R

Hearsay
What are you doing Labor Day weekend? Me? I’m so glad you asked! I’m going to my in-laws in Sun City, Texas, where we’re going to grill out and (try to) watch preseason football and referee the kids and maybe squeeze in a...

New Music Sucks (Still?)

Hearsay
Last December was a long time ago, especially in terms of Facebook minutes (confession: I spend way too much time on FB, as if “infinity scroll” is some sort of endurance challenge), but the science –– the science! –...
