Evolving Sound Emoji

Fungi Girls are critical darlings, but they aren’t afraid to change their tune.
Steve Steward
I’ll be honest. Interviewing a band by group text is sort of a bit, but seeing as how the three dudes in the Fungi Girls are only a few years out of high school, an interview via texts seems less like a clever conceit and mor...

Bafongoo, Voters!

Shady behavior won’t stop this GOP judge from a comfy retirment [sic].
Jeff Prince

It’s taken a decade for historic land along the Trinity in Arlington to go from lawless to flawless.
Karen Gavis

The Toadies, Ryan Tharp, Mean Motor Scooter, Red Shahan, and Cody Lee have new music for ya.
Fort Worth Weekly
Red Shahan’s Men & Coyotes (Magnolia Records) At first glance, “Men & Coyotes” seems like a silly name for a song, much less an album. And then the track begins playing, and I’ll never doubt Red Shahan again. Th...
