South By Recap

A Fort Worth muso brings back a report from the frontlines.

Closing the Lid on Box of Rock

HEARSAY

Headed to Austin this week? See some Fort Worth music. Or else.

Since the late 1990s, when I first started attending South by Southwest, I’ve complained so much about the annual music festival and conference that you’d think I was talking about some family reunion I’d been forced to g...

Anthony Mariani
Even though Burning Hotels and Calhoun are performing on the first night of the annual music festival and conference South-By-Southwest, Tue, Mar 13, both Fort Worth indie-rock bands will be staying (partying?) in Austin throug...
