Fungi-Girls

Evolving Sound Emoji

Fungi Girls are critical darlings, but they aren’t afraid to change their tune.

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....

Pinkish Black: Bury the Past, Eye the Future

The heavy experimental duo is set to release a new and old album.
KEN SHIMAMOTO
The year 2014 was a good one for Fort Worth’s heaviest, noisiest experimental duo. In the spring, Pinkish Black completed a West Coast tour with Italian progressive rockers Goblin, kindred spirits whose soundtracks for ’70s...

The Toadies, Ryan Tharp, Mean Motor Scooter, Red Shahan, and Cody Lee have new music for ya.
Fort Worth Weekly
Red Shahan’s Men & Coyotes (Magnolia Records) At first glance, “Men & Coyotes” seems like a silly name for a song, much less an album. And then the track begins playing, and I’ll never doubt Red Shahan again. Th...

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...

Davis Chapman’s Moving Boxes There’s plenty to like about Moving Boxes, the debut album by Fort Worth’s Davis Chapman. In the end, however, a fatal flaw derails the project. Chapman assembled a crack team of local side mu...

Blues Around the Clock

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...

Squanto’s Cyborg-Rock

It’s weird, it’s out there, and it’s aggressive, but this electronica is honest.
