Tim Burt was a sweetheart of a man, and he worked his ass off behind the scenes at Lola’s to make it the institution that it is. In celebration of his life that ended way too short recently, Lola’s Trailer Park (2735 W 5th St, 817-759-9100) will host a jam 2-5pm Sun. “Tim loved to sit around with his friends and jam,” the online invitation says, “so if you want to bring a guitar, or a drum, or a kazoo, a maraca, a washboard, or anything that will make a musical noise … we’ll have [a] jam to remember all the great nights Tim spent all night jamming with his friends at his house.” No cover, but bring your foldin’ money for some cold, frosty beverages. Cheers, Tim. I miss our ragey political talks and your kindness.


That takes care of Sunday, but the action in town gets started on Thursday. At 9pm at Magnolia Motor Lounge (3005 Morton St, 817-332-3344), the rowdy Buffalo Ruckus takes the stage, preceded by singer-songwriter Ryan Glenn. Tickets are $12-100 and can be found at On the other side of town, MASS (1002 S Main St, 682-707-7774) welcomes The Robot Bonfire, The Infamists, and King Clam. Doors open at 7. Tickets are $5 in advance at



For the weekend proper, MASS is shaping up as the place to be. The Jet Noise, How’s My Driving, and Slowboat will bring the rock Friday. And “The Jet Noise” is not a typo. It’s the same band from Josh & The Jet Noise sans Josh, who split last year, which means The Jet Noise is a bass-and-drum duo. As opposed to “drum ’n’ bass.” Which it most certainly is not, at least according to the former band’s tuneage and a new vid of the duo on Fakebook. Cover is $7.

And at 7pm Sat, garage rockers Bruce Magnus will release two singles off their upcoming album, Spare Beans. Red Admirals and Denver Williams will open. Tickets are $7 in advance at or 10 bucks at the door. — Anthony Mariani
