Killer or Filler?

Hey, Fort Worth. 2003 called. They want their singer-songwriters back.
Along with the return of Flickerstick frontman Brandin Lea, who’s fronting a new project, Jetta in the Ghost Tree (“Return of the Jetta,” Sept. 4), singer-songwriter John Price, who was once the biggest rock star in town ...

Southern-fried metalists Southern Train Gypsy have signed with a new label, Chokehold Records, based in Los Angeles.

Chokehold Signs Southern Train Gypsy

Southern Train Gypsy might not seem like the kind of band to be interested in stuff like record labels and “getting signed” and all that noise. Frontman Matthew Leslie, bassist Duane Smith, guitarists Brian Hoover and Travi...


Dubstep’s Time?

For whatever reason, dubstep hasn’t taken off in Fort Worth (or Denton). Dallas is silly with the stuff, but the good ol’ Fort? Not so much. Maybe the Stockyards are to blame. Though we all know better, a lot of North Texan...

Deaf Angel's metallic, melodic debut has been a long time coming.

Loud Ascension

Man, this music biz is crackers. Not news, I know, but sometimes you come across a local band or album that makes you wonder why some bands “make it” and others –– perhaps just as talented, probably just as driven –...

Animal Spirit Rises

Animal Spirit is not only one of the most talented new rock bands around but also a kind of testament to the power of the Fort Worth scene. In other words, if not for the F-Dub, there probably wouldn’t be an Animal Spirit. Th...


MAF ’13: That’s a Wrap

Wow. That was fast. After months of planning, Fort Worth Weekly’s 11th Annual Music Awards Festival has come and gone. And what a day. I caught a lot of great shows, starting at 4 p.m. with The Fibs at the outdoor Capital Bar...

Idol schmidol. Casey James is still a force on the pop music landscape.

2013 Hall of Famers

As part of our Music Awards every year, we induct outstanding members of Fort Worth’s scene into the Fort Worth Music Hall of Fame, a metaphoric institution peopled by the likes of Delbert McClinton, Vaden Todd Lewis, Dewey R...

That Low-End Rumble

First, thank you for supporting local music. As you’ve probably learned by now, the best stuff doesn’t always come from someplace else. Like, say, Brooklyn or Portland. Or Boise. Sometimes your backyard is as fertile an art...

The Hanna Barbarians have got a van. And a plan. Look out.

Barbs’ Pop-Off Tour

So The Hanna Barbarians got a van: a 2010 15-passenger Chevy. The reason? Oh, just a short but undoubtedly intense tour through Austin, Waco, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Nashville, and Memphis. I know what you’re thinking. This...

P.A.T.: Urban Noir

For reasons that are either all too obvious or completely indiscernible, hip-hop is geared less toward performance and more toward recording. I mean, a guy standing onstage with a microphone and a laptop? There’s not much the...
