FORT WORTH WEEKLY MUSIC STAFF

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...

Fort Worth is awash in new, exciting, progressive tuneage with old roots.
JIMMY FOWLER, ANTHONY MARIANI, AND STEVE STEWARD
