I Live in a Small Town

A Fort Worth filmmaker premieres his debut feature in front of his hometown.
Kristian Lin
I saw Windsor last Sunday during the just-concluded Lone Star Film Festival. Given how much coverage this publication has expended on Fort Worth’s Porter Farrell and his film, it would have been strange for me to be anywhere ...

Fellowship of Love Shines

Started by a group of friends, this 28-year-old church welcomes all.
KATE SKINNER
Growing up in Nowheresville, Texas, in the 1980s with strict parents and nothing but tumbleweeds to play with is tough enough on a teenage boy. Add in a vivacious, outspoken personality –– and a sex scandal –– and life ...

Night & Day

Kristian Lin
Wed 11 - The six musicians who make up the Chicago-based avant-garde chamber music group eighth blackbird (not “sixth” is right) have devoted their careers to combining contemporary music with elements of performance art, i...

Way Fun at the Wayside Ballroom

Steve Steward
Last week, I intended to write about Wayside Ballroom’s show on Halloween Eve (or Devil’s Night, if you’re a resident of some dying Rust Belt town where people set things on fire and throw raw eggs at them every October 3...

Growling is for Stomachs

Chow, Baby
What is it about beer and wine snobs that irritates me so? I mean, I’m a wine person, but I don’t stick my whole face into a glass of vino and sniff like I’m huffing paint. I don’t swirl the juice around, raise it above...


Squanto’s Color TV Death represents a new paradigm.

Squanto’s Spear of Density

There’s new music, and then there’s this Fort Worthian’s dark electro-pop.
Anthony Mariani
For fans of ’90s trip-hop, early Beck, glitchwerks, the poetry of John Ashbery and Jorie Graham, and music as people 30 and older probably treasure it, Squanto represents a sonic totem. “Ten was the last great album-album!...

Jesse’s Girls

There’s more to Jesse Sierra Hernandez than babes — mainly classicism and conceptualism.
Anthony Mariani
Jesse Sierra Hernandez has finally arrived. The fortysomething painter started out nearly two decades ago as a sort of scenester-slash-bon vivant-slash-autodidact who was arguably more popular personally than his artwork. Which...

Welcome, Wayside Ballroom

Hearsay
Right now, The Wayside Ballroom is a mess. Electrical cables dangle from the “ceiling,” machinery and tools are strewn across the dust-and-debris-covered floor, and at least 10 metric tons of musical gear weighs down the st...

Vodeo’s Auspicious Debut

This yacht-rocking Fort Worth quartet’s self-titled EP is already a classic.
Anthony Mariani
These guys must get laid a lot. Not that having acrobatic sex with as many attractive people as possible is every musician’s dream, but … wait. Yes, it is. Anyway, not since The Hanna Barbarians or maybe even the John Price...

Whatever Will Be

Chow, Baby
The Fort Worth restaurant biz is a cruel villain sitting in a swivel chair stroking a hairless cat. It gets in the right lane at a traffic light and doesn’t turn. It flushes the toilet while you’re in the shower. And what...
