Missing Sibling: “Instead of being insular in a time when it’s easy to do so, find your missing sibling, long-lost close friends you may have never known were there.”

The Sibling Collective

HEARSAY
Missing Sibling is indeed a straight-ahead ragged-pop band committed to the health and longevity of loud, fuzzy guitars, bashing cymbals, and floating, yawning vocal melodies. But frontman Drew Gabbert, bassist/backing-vocalist...

Lazy Summer Creeping In

Former (and current) punks craft moody ukulele-driven instrumental jazz.
JIMMY FOWLER
The goal of most bands is to capture an audience with the raw musical power of their live performances. Guitarist/ukuleleist/composer Jeremiah Kirby, 34, spent several years trying to do that in a ska-punk band that played all ...

WED ▪ 2 There’s no telling when The Where House will close. All that we know for sure is that it will. And probably sooner rather than later, so tonight’s show has special significance. Headlined by the Bay Area’s Burnt...

The Me-Thinks: Loud and Sucky

Three Chili Dog Night goes well with sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll.
ANTHONY MARIANI
To his left from the Boswell High School parking lot was home. To his right, the way to Haltom “Rock” City. When he was a 17-year-old senior in 1989, Ray Liberio started turning right after school. And he’s never looked b...



JJ & The Rogues' new album has been well worth the wait.

JJ & The Rogues: Sweet Talkers

HEARSAY
The album starts with the sounds of waves crashing, boards creaking, and a British-accented chap shouting, “All hands!” A pealing ship’s bell segues to a dreamy bed of synths accented by slowly plucked acoustic guitar and...

LAST CALL
Look, I know I should’ve stayed at home and gone to bed instead of going out on Monday — since Thursday, I’d been struggling with unstoppable mucus and a hacking cough. I’d gone to the doctor that afternoon to combat th...



Done poorly, mod-rock can sound melodramatic. In Memory of Man does it well.

Muscular, Modern In Memory of Man

Fort Worth Weekly
Unless you’re The Toadies, you can’t seem to get away with mod-rock in this town. Heavy riffs and pounding rhythms with vocalists singing melodically about loss, despair, and desperation tend to smack of artifice, of melodr...


Igneous Grimm's sophomore album, Everything Is the Same Thing, is pure country-psychedelia.

Igneous Grimm: Country-Psychedelia (UPDATED)

The Orbans: Return Orbit

Life intervened, but now The Orbans have a successor to their groundbreaking first album.
ANTHONY MARIANI
Only a few years ago, The Orbans might have been the biggest band in North Texas, packing shows across the region, everyone no doubt drawn by the quintet’s polished, melodic, and smart yet rugged pop-rock. And if you missed a...

And Boom Goes the Prog-Funk

Bomb Atomic’s brand of rock and quality of live performance are explosive.
EDWARD BROWN
Vocalist Justin “Beef” Williams is as crazy about music in general as he is about his funkified prog-rocking quartet. During a recent Bomb Atomic set at The Grotto, he took advantage of a lull between songs to galvanize the...
