Killer or Filler?

Sometimes psychedelic rock, party rap, and imagined soundtrack music sneak by us.
FORT WORTH WEEKLY MUSIC STAFF
Some people think we should cover more than Fort Worth. Ha! Yeah, right. There are, like, a million bands here. And half of them are good. We’d have to hire 12 more writers to do any justice to this scene alone, and, well, we...

All’s a Board

Producer Britt Robisheaux just wants to make great records.
ANTHONY MARIANI
At some point in 2007, Drug Mountain bassist Britt Robisheaux picked up the phone and dialed a number. On the other end (eventually) was Steve Albini, the legendary musician, writer, and producer who’s worked with some of the...



In diverging slightly from their standard m.o., Quaker City Night Hawks produced the best song to come out of the 817 in ’13. At least according to HearSay.

Best Local Songs of ’13

It’s not a comprehensive list, but it’s, uh, something.
HEARSAY
By “best,” of course, I mean “my favorite.” And by “local,” I mean “Tarrant County.” For the most part. People from Dallas, Denton, and beyond have a lot to do with the great music that comes out of the 817 ever...


Lost Child is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter full of soul.

Finding Lost Child

HEARSAY
Monday nights have been pretty rad at Lola’s over the past month. Bartender (and sax-man extraordinaire) Jeff Dazey started booking free shows on the allegedly slowest party night of the week, beginning with a full-on set by ...

Pinkish Black Lights Up

Dark times underlie their dark music, but this Fort Worth duo is on the move.
STEVE STEWARD
Even the family tree of band names reads like the cast of some creation myth culled from the collective human consciousness: Ohm was the first, from which came Yeti, who begat The Great Tyrant, from whose ashes arose Pinkish Bl...


It’s a haypatch hustle for Walker and company.

Dangerous Hoedown

JIMMY FOWLER
At one point during the tune “Haypatch Hustler” from Walker & The Texas Dangers’ 2011 debut album Pay the Fiddler, Brett Walker shouts, “Balin’ hay, hey, it’s my job!” The lead singer and upright bass player f...



Kites and Boomerangs: “You can run into problems when one guy brings a riff to the table, and everyone just builds around it.”

Kaleidoscopic

On their new album, Kites and Boomerangs hone in on a signature sound.
JIMMY FOWLER
The Fort Worth indie-pop quartet Kites and Boomerangs has been playing high-energy shows with its current lineup –– guitarist/vocalist Josh Garcia, guitarist/vocalist Will Appleton, drummer/vocalist Donnie Simmons, and bass...


Pablo & The Hemphill 7 may be the longest-running Fort Worth band in town.

SoundClash ’13: Irie Times

HEARSAY
The year 2004 seems like forever ago. The music scene hereabouts was only a fraction of what it is now. The only day-in/day-out rock venues were The Aardvark, The Moon, Ridglea Theater, and The Wreck Room. That’s it. The big ...



Pinkish Black, is that you?

Time to Get Dressed and Effed Up

LAST CALL
I’m not one to go bananas with the decorations, and I couldn’t care less about candy, but overall I am a big fan of Halloween. Aside from the laughable hysteria the holiday engenders among certain subsets of the population,...


Composer Curtis Heath, a.k.a. "Uncle Curtis," is recovering from cancer, and some of his insanely talented friends are throwing a benefit concert for him, Sun, at Lola's.

Curtis Heath Benefit Sunday

HEARSAY
In the annals of Fort Worth music, The Theater Fire looms large. Smart, dusty, and melancholy, the quintet managed to bridge all kinds of gaps: between worldly and provincial, modern and ancient, young and old, rustic and sophi...
