Friday on the Green Is Here

Breaking news: Filthy rich people will do anything short of stash their money beneath their Bergères to avoid paying taxes, leaving the rest of us plebes with the bill, because we working-class types enjoy only raping, robbing...

Soundcheck 817: The Hendersons at The Grotto

Eric Griffey
This week, the Soundcheck party handcar trudged haplessly to The Grotto (517 University Dr.), where The Henderson’s will be playing tomorrow night (Feb. 27). Frontman Nolan Ryan Robertson and guitarist Caleb Stanislaw pla...



The Hendersons

Top 5 Shows

Steve Steward
1) Ever seen the Hendersons? I think I saw them long ago when the Gold Standard was still around; if my memory isn’t mistaken and it was in fact that band, then the show was in the afternoon at that bar during the Weekly’s ...


Squanto

Top 5 Shows

Steve Steward
1) The Grotto’s Friday night bill is interesting; Squanto headlines, with Shmu and Tidals playing at 11 and 10pm respectively, so you’ll be getting a heavy dose of samplers and keyboards and sonic collages, but Big Hand/Big...



The sunshiny Hendersons are back, hopefully for good this time.

Welcome Back, Hendersons

Hearsay
Well, I’ve been saying it forever. Now maybe people will finally start listening to me. With all apologies to JJ & The Rogues and BLKrKRT, The Hendersons are probably the best working 817 artist you’ve never heard of. D...

Local Songs of the Year

HEARSAY
Now that the year is coming to a close, let’s look back at some of the great songs that came to us from the 817 or thereabouts. In celebration of 2014, below are my favorite 14 local tunes of the year. I’ll share my 14 fave...



JJ & The Rogues' new album has been well worth the wait.

JJ & The Rogues: Sweet Talkers

HEARSAY
The album starts with the sounds of waves crashing, boards creaking, and a British-accented chap shouting, “All hands!” A pealing ship’s bell segues to a dreamy bed of synths accented by slowly plucked acoustic guitar and...


The Hendersons' two new tracks further cement frontman Nolan Robertson status as one of North Texas' best singer-songwriters.

Killer or Filler?

Fort Worth is awash in new, exciting, progressive tuneage with old roots.
JIMMY FOWLER, ANTHONY MARIANI, AND STEVE STEWARD
There’s nothing wrong with reworking the past. You know a lot of great songs have been written by musicians half-trying to recreate existing great songs. Out now for your pleasure are several themed recordings that have a lot...



"Getcher freshly squeezed pop right here!" never said The Hendersons.

Hello Again to The Hendersons

HEARSAY
One of the most talented yet underrated Fort Worth bands is back on the scene after a long hiatus. The last we heard from The Hendersons was in 2010, when the vehicle for singer-songwriter Nolan Robertson released Lotosyros. Th...


Newbie Nolan Robertson (The Hendersons) joins the JJs — Jameson Cockerell (center) and Josh Townley — to keep the Rogues running.

Gone Rogue

Turnover in JJ & The Rogues has closed some doors while opening others.
MATTHEW MCGOWAN
The two “Rogues” in JJ & The Rogues have, um, gone rogue. Just in the past few weeks, the Fort Worth pop-rock quartet lost a bassist and then, completely out of the blue, a drummer, leaving the group’s main duo in the...
