The Longshots Kick It

HEARSAY
Some bands like to put out records every five years. Others like to put out everything. All the time. In the latter camp is The Longshots. The four punky Stones-esque Fort Worthians have just released Kicker Again, the follow-u...

Dark Waves

HEARSAY
The first time I saw Hentai Improvising Orchestra was on a sunny Saturday afternoon in the late aughts, out behind Doc’s Records & Vintage’s original location on Montgomery Street. The experience was very church-like. T...



Terrible People is the first -- and may be the last -- we hear of recorded Mailman.

Special Delivery

HEARSAY
It’s like Night of the Living Dead, but instead of flesh-eating zombies you’ve got a reanimated band and a reanimated record label. The former is Mailman, a gritty smart-pop quartet (think: Calhoun meets The Old 97’s) tha...

Rap Up that Lola’s Jay

HEARSAY
Hip-hop finally has a home. For the past few months, Lola’s Saloon has been hosting shows by some of the most progressive underground rappers and beatmakers in North Texas and beyond on Wednesday nights. Before Lola’s, hip-...



The Apache 5 is back after a long hiatus, playing Friday at Lola's Saloon.

Apache 5, Happi Hous, Color Control

HEARSAY
As with most weekends in the Fort, this one has options for, let’s say, adults and for, let’s say, people with less serious responsibilities. If we could imagine Friday as a wedding reception, the people with 9-to-5s, maybe...

R.I.P. Todd Osborne

HEARSAY
A few club owners had tried indie-rock in the Stockyards before, but it never really took off until Todd Osborne created The Basement Bar in the late ’00s. Osborne, who died Monday of natural causes at the age of 41, was an i...


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...

Night & Day

KRISTIAN LIN
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...


Among Friday's shows, Fort Worth light-rockers The Oregon Trailers will celebrate the release of their self-titled debut EP.

Friday Fun in the Fort

HEARSAY
