New Local Music

New tunes are coming at you from Bosque Brown, War Party, and Sarah Jaffe.

Deep Ellum on Air, Rage

The Dallas Observer recently published a story about some dude trying to build a web portal that would simulcast every concert in Deep Ellum. Every one. Lots of people went bonkers, most of them stepping up on several amplifier...

Culberson: “We love making music together. Everyone gets along so well.”

Cody Culberson’s Blame

With a new EP and new confidence, the Fort Worth singer-songwriter may have finally arrived.
Edward Brown
Cody Culberson’s return to The Prophet Bar next weekend will mark a milestone for him. The Fort Worth singer-songwriter got his first break at that Dallas venue six years ago, when Joel Fruth, the club’s booking agent, gave...
