After playing a sanctioned showcase, Fort Worth’s War Party is ready to, um, party at South By Southwest. Steve Steward

South By Recap

The lines were long and sad but the music copious at the annual Austin fest.
STEVE STEWARD
Here’s the thing: I kinda suck at South By Southwest. I get to Austin late. I get defeated by lines. I drink too much, or I don’t drink enough. I worry about who I’m going to impose on for a place to crash, or I get stuck...

SXSW: A New Surreality

STEVE STEWARD
Last night, a man allegedly got hammered, got into his car, got pulled over by the cops, and then tried to flee the scene before he could get arrested for drunk driving. During his flight, he allegedly killed two people with hi...

UT Student’s Selfie With Justin Bieber At SXSW Isn’t What It Seems

Jeff Prince
Hating Justin Bieber is the new black. When I woke up this morning, all the morning news shows were showcasing a video of Bieber displaying a snotty attitude during a recent deposition. One of the show’s hosts even said h...

South By Recap

A Fort Worth muso brings back a report from the frontlines.
MATT MABE
The traffic. The lines. The overpriced food-truck fare. The nonstop day-drinking. The huge crowds. The anxiety I feel every year before South By Southwest often unsettles me to the point of nausea. It really is a lot to take in...

’Tis the season for music festivals, anchored by possibly the best, most progressive, easiest-to-navigate festival in the world, South By Southwest. Created some 25 years ago as a showcase for up-and-coming bands, the annual ...

Closing the Lid on Box of Rock

HEARSAY
I’m guessing that not many local, original musicians listen to mainstream classic rock on a regular basis. I don’t think I’ve ever heard any of them say, “Yeah, I was listening to Lone Star Ninety-Two-Five the other day...



SXSW

Hoogie Boogie Land, Tex.

HEARSAY
So I’m broke, and the year I elect to stay home instead of go to Austin for South by Southwest, the annual international music festival and conference (March 12-17), is shaping up to be one of the most Fort-friendly South-bys...


The best band in Fort Worth, Complete will play South-by-Southwest for the fifth or sixth year in a row.

SXSW is Complete … Again

ANTHONY MARIANI
More than 800 bands (and counting) from all over the globe have been selected to perform as part of the 2013 South-by-Southwest Music Festival and Conference (March 12-17). The list includes a few regional acts, including three...



Fort Worth at South-by

Anthony Mariani
For me, I guess, going to South-by is a lot like going to Lola’s or The Grotto –– at the annual Austin festival, I’m usually watching a Fort Worth band, and I’m usually surrounded by Fort Worth people. In my old South...

Fort Worth Weekly
