Hanna Barbarians Redux

HEARSAY
The Hanna Barbarians are an interesting bunch, to say the least. They’re kind of like their own little scene and not only because there are, like, 20 people in the band. (There are six. But you get the point.) It was just a c...



The Solo Sol folks find themselves the elder statesmen and -women of a scene within a scene, all revolving around Dreamy Soundz.

Solo Sol: Dreamgaze

With walls of sound and lofty pedigrees, this Fort Worth sextet is finally arriving.
ERIC GRIFFEY
Sarah Reagan’s voice is to dream-pop sextet Solo Sol what Helen of Troy’s face was to the Trojan War, but instead of a thousand ships, Reagan’s languid, willowy pipes have launched a thousand songs. Co-frontman Robert Bra...


Oh Whitney is back.

Oh Whitney Volvemos

HEARSAY
Prodigal sons Oh Whitney have returned. But only for a couple of weeks. Fronted by Fort Worth native Peter More, the alt-Americana quartet has roots in North Carolina –– Duke University, specifically –– but also has spe...



Last Call

Live Oak Finally Comes Alive

LAST CALL
On Saturday night, I looked around the Live Oak’s main room at the masses bouncing along to Skeleton Coast, dancing in a flood of the Fort Worth band’s spacey reverb and phased guitars. Bathed in green light from gel lamps ...


The Swindle Boys have had a busy 2012 and are returning to the shed to write more material.

No Swindlin’ Brothers

The Swindle Boys pump out anthemic alt-rock that’s ready for radio.
JIMMY FOWLER
Joey and Matt Swindle, the brothers who perform as the alt-rock duo The Swindle Boys, were raised in a devout Southern Baptist family in Little Rock, Ark. Their dad was a preacher and a truck driver. But lead singer-drummer-key...



Psychedelic, trippy-dippy, and loud, a Skeleton Coast blowout is always memorable.

Sailing Skeleton Coast

With a dazzling debut album, this young Fort Worth quartet soars.
ANTHONY MARIANI
The outdoor stage abounded with goofballs: a cherubic angel; a sexy cop; a young woman in black army boots, black fishnets, a black microdress, and bank-robber mask; a slight person of indistinct gender in a fuzzy red jumpsuit ...


Tarrant County rapper Doug Funnie's new album is poised to make him the nerdcore king. Locally, of course.

Doug Funnie’s Head in the Cloudz

HEARSAY
Uh-oh. Is Rivercrest Yacht Club’s reign as the clown princes of North Texas hip-hop in jeopardy? MCs Heffminster de la Rocha, Generic, and DDS, with their killer rhythm section of drummer Lucas White (James Hinkle, Gunga Galu...



Cosmic Trigger frontman Tyrel Choat: “It’s all about having balls. Hell, if we screw up and no one’s there, at least we tried.”

New Cosmic Order

With twin guitar leads and a double-bass attack, The Cosmic Trigger might pull off a crossover.
ANTHONY MARIANI
The Sword broke the barrier. The Austin quartet was one of the first heavy-metal bands to be embraced by the indie-rock community, not only receiving airplay on college radio stations nationwide but getting press, often good pr...


Fort Worth psycho-surf punks Fungi Girls will rock Lolaspalooza III on Friday night.

Lola’s, 1919 Fests

HEARSAY
This weekend, not one but two –– count ’em, two –– underground festivals are happening, and while they mostly draw from different demographics, Lolaspalooza III and 1919 Hemphill’s 10th anniversary bash will be comp...
