Wed 27 - Haydn was inspired to write The Creation after visiting England and hearing Handel’s oratorios, but since his librettist, Gottfried von Swieten, botched his attempt to set the words into English, many choirs prefer t...


Left Arm Tan’s latest album was inspired by a phone booth ringing in the middle of a desert.

Left Arm Tan: Smart Country

This Fort Worth quintet stretches traditional boundaries musically, lyrically.

Papa’s Smokehouse: Old Haunt, New Restaurant

Chow, Baby
Wrap your head around this: I recently had a hamburger with an enchilada and a beef patty between the buns. This wasn’t for some gimmicky, competitive feats-of-eats thing, either. The gluttonous, delicious heart attack of a s...

Benton and the Paxtons

One of America’s greatest art treasures has a long connection with one of Fort Worth’s most popular families.
Jeff Prince
