Merkin Tools Along

Though the guys in the mod-rock trio rarely rehearse, they’re still super-tight and highly capable.
CAROLINE COLLIER
The guys in the mod-rock trio Merkin get a lot of flak for naming their band after a pubic wig. Calling their first full-length album in an eight-year existence Scatology (the study of excrement) probably doesn’t help encoura...


GROdors

Hearsay
Hard to believe, but Green River Ordinance is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Seems like just yesterday, the Fort Worth guys were bright-eyed youngsters in awe of local giants like Flickerstick and John Price. But G...



You Had to Be There

Last Call
Well, the big news in town this week was that Jeff Bridges and T Bone Burnett played Saturday night at Eight-O as part of the Lone Star International Film Festival. I didn’t get to go (thanks, work), but I know it was sold ou...

A Failsafe Rowdy Weekend

Hearsay

HUMANERROR’s performance reputation precedes the band. Inside an unventilated, austere warehouse, the noise is palpable, the speed astonishing. Fists swing like maces, sweat flies wild, bruises are taken in stride. Enraptured...


Keepin’ it Real at Dos Amigos

Last Call
I realized the other day that I need to pay more attention to pop music, because in another 10 years, the set lists of cover bands are going to adjust themselves, and at my current rate of absorption, I will have very little to...



The Heart of Saturday Night

Last Call
If I heard it once this week, I heard it a dozen times: “So, didja go to The Where House party?” In case you missed last week’s HearSay column, I’m referring to a party on Saturday night at The Where House on Hemphill S...


D-Beat Via Rotundus

The metal-punk quartet’s new cassette is an escape.
COLE GARNER HILL
Sunsets of orange and violet, freedom from the visual clutter of skyscrapers and highway overpasses, pecan pie at the Lord’s Acre in the fall, Indian paintbrushes in the spring — the area just south of Fort Worth is a perfe...
