Stark Failure

Kristian Lin

Cliburn Times Three

Big Ticket
The Cliburn Concert Series returns this week, and there’s more than ever of it to enjoy. This fall, the series expands into three different venues, each with its own focus. Subsuming the old Modern at the Modern series, the C...



Howling at the Moon

Hearsay

Big Ticket
The Fort Worth Symphony joins the rest of the world in celebrating Mozart’s 250th birthday with a four-day festival beginning tomorrow (Thu) in Bass Performance Hall. Mozart created an astonishing array of solo pieces, concer...

Listen Up

Micky and the Motorcars

Listen Up
Micky and the Motorcars are an able bunch with an invigorating live show. They’ve killed at the White Elephant Saloon and Central Market outdoor stage this summer. The Austin-based band writes catchy melodies and lyrics and i...
