Facebooked Solid

I’d venture that for the same reason festivals are popular for national acts, festivals are popular for our regional/local brethren/sistren. Increased exposure for bands. Increased exposure for concertgoers. It’s a win-win....

Critical Distance

Hearsay
Had this fun text convo a couple of days ago. Me: He said lots of good things, ones even I can agree with. Ma: Yes, he is truly a humanist. Len: Or a liberal leftwing pope. Ma: Don’t go there, Len. Len: I call it as I see it,...



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...

Lola’s Wrevival

Hearsay
I like this. I like this new development. Every autumn, I get a little nostalgic. The slant of the sun as it bathes very institutional-looking buildings in hazy yellow. The anticipation of donning flannel over- and undergarment...


TTAQ

Welcome Home, TTXQ

Hearsay
If you lived in or around the Fort in the late aughts and ever even glanced at this column, you would know that my love of Tame … Tame and Quiet is matched only by my love of family, the great Satan hisself, and New York-styl...



(From left to right) Brady Hamilton, Alex Zobel, Joey Gorman, and Kris Luther have never sounded better, Gorman feels.

The Longshots: Mucho Mango

Hearsay
The Longshots have a new album up their sleeves. Look for Inhaler this winter. But before then, it will be all Mucho Mango. That’s according to co-frontman Joey Gorman. Not long after the gritty Rolling Stones/Clash-influence...


The Foxymorons

Re-Enter: The Foxymorons

Hearsay
Of every band in North Texas, The Foxymorons may be in the weirdest place. Since forming in Mesquite in the mid-1990s, the duo of singer-songwriters David Dewese and Jerry James has achieved some national love, having received ...
