White Noise: Bobby Sessions’ new video will make you want to quit your job.
Bobby Sessions Drops New Hating Day’s Work Video, Dallas Opera House Launches Streaming Service, St Vincent Interview Stirs Controversy, and Much More!
As we have already noted, the post-vaccinated feeling of going to see live music with all your friends is really a very pleasant feeling.
But, of course, there are some among us who are just not ready to take that leap just yet after a year-long sequestration caused by the still ongoing pandemic.
For this set, there is good news: it looks like some of the poverty-boosted innovations of 2020 may exist in the future. the Dallas Opera House, which is already working to bring culture to the city and make it accessible to all via a movable flatbed truck called the OperaTruck, is now launching a new streaming service called thedallasopera.tv.
While the OperaTruck will continue to offer free outdoor concerts, thedallasopera.tv will allow subscribers access to a catalog of previously recorded material, various original shows including children’s programs and new content that is expected to be released. added regularly. The service costs $ 4.99 per month.
Of course, like Ubbi Dubbi showed us a few weeks ago, some people are already gnawing a bit to come back and attend crowded festivals. R&B singer Count Fort Worth (and general musical force to be reckoned with) Leon bridges among this set: He’s already been confirmed for a number of festivals this coming season, including headlining appearances at the Railbird Festival, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and Backcountry Music Festival.
There are also a few new reasons to encourage DJs and Metroplex punk bands who may want to start hunting down booking contacts on two separate new fronts.
A new bar opens in Sanger in part thanks to the efforts of Wee-Beasties director Stephanie Hollowell. Called Bolivar St. Revival & Spirits, the spot should be ready for happy hour by the fall of this year. The place looks to be pretty cool based on construction photos published on his Facebook page, and if that has anything to do with someone from the Wee-Beasties, then you know it’s gonna be pretty wild. To that end, this group from Denton spent the past weekend organize a “punk rock car wash” to raise funds for their next album – and raising over $ 1,000 in the process. Not bad for a day’s work!
Back in Dallas, old man Starlight Lounge the space on East Elm finally reopened under the name Charlie’s Star Lounge, after having been taken over and put to code by The nine‘owner Allen Falkner and its general manager Corey howe, whose name you may recognize as the frontman of the Dallas rock band Dead flowers. The spot was only intentionally changed so much, but one difference is that they removed the pool table to open up a dance floor – one already used for DJ sets hosted in space.
Speaking of grooving, the Dallas punk label Barf Wave recordings is organize an event called “Vaccination Celebration Pt. 1” on June 26 on the Deep Ellum website Ruins. This is the first in a series of two label events at Ruins, and expect it to come with some protocols. In order to see the range of Medium scooter, Boredom lizzie and Thyroids, you will need to pay $ 10, bring proof of vaccination with you, and rock a mask.
Nearby place Three links, meanwhile, also announced some new residences for country music fans, punk rockers and foodies. On the one hand, they will organize another series of his Punk rock dinner club featuring the chef’s food Justin box and the music of Dog company, Lethal dose and Ten can riotof Scotty diss Sunday May 16; you can get more information about this event hereand the head here for a recap of the last time Box took over Three Links. Meanwhile, if country music is more your thing, Links is too rolling out a new Sunday matinee series called Hern’s Country Saloon which will feature John tipton go on stage on the first Saturdays, Justin pickard the second Saturday, Jenna clark the third Saturdays and Mike Randall the fourth Saturday.
Speaking of local country musicians, the next Marfa bands collaborative project of Miranda Lambert, Jack ingram and Jon randall will be released on Friday May 7th. And, at the end of the day, it comes with a feature film to go with it. The film version will be in fashion Lambert’s Facebook page for 24 hours on Saturday May 8, but a taste of those visuals can be seen right now in the form of Lambert acoustically performing the song “Tin Man” from this album:
That’s pretty cool, so see Lambert in Lindale offer her star power to elevate the career of Grammy-winning Dallas Randall, and to a lesser extent the SMU alum Ingram, although he had many successes over the years.
It’s also dope to see Joshua Ray Walker to receive his due, too – and in the form of a drool Texas monthly profile, Not less. In the room, sometimes a CT contributor Johnny Auping provides a detailed picture of the brilliant Deep Ellumite, chronicling his introduction to music at a young age, his darkest self-destructive drinking days where Walker says he passed out in all the bars in Deep Ellum and, now, his rising celebrity. Auping writes, “Part of the strength of Walker’s songs is that they are not about country tropes. Instead of tractors or horses, his ballads are filled with vivid portraits of complex and imperfect Dallas people: sex workers, gamers, boat show models, loud liars. Of course, he only preaches to the choir as far as we are concerned. In fact, the former editor of CT Alec spicer was even quoted in the profile, saying, “A lot of people throw this away [term] around, but when you know, you know, I see Joshua Ray Walker not only as the next big name in Dallas country music, but the next one to come out of Dallas.
We’re just happy that all of those interviews worked out well for Walker’s play. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of a recent Saint Vincent interview. Dallas performer Annie Clark found herself in a bit of hot water last week when it was revealed that she had a story about her death after the fact because she didn’t like questions asked. The whole situation has raised an interesting debate in music journalism circles, but given the way it daddy’s house LP is being promoted around the story of his father’s release from prison, perhaps Clark should have expected a few curved balls to be thrown in this press cycle with the lobs.
Even so, even though we don’t know how beautiful it is to have the work of a freelance writer killed, we have to concede than the new models from her Ernie Ball the signature guitars are really elegant. I mean, look at those axes!
Speaking of shiny new things, when the Dallas Cowboys selected University of Kentucky cornerback Kelvin Joseph with the 44th selection in the general classification 2021 NFL Draft, they didn’t just get help in high school; they also expanded the area’s rap community! See, Joseph is also a rapper who performs under the nickname of YKDV Bossman Fat. This is what it looks like:
Moving on, some gruesome accusations have led to upheavals in the local country radio landscape. Justin frazell, the longtime host of the morning show 95.9-FM KFWR The Ranch, was terminated by the station following his arrest on two separate charges of sexual misconduct, including one with a teenager. Details can be found by clicking on either of the hyperlinks in the previous sentence, but suffice it to say that the alleged circumstances reveal a model of Frazell grossly abusing his position of influence to take advantage of women in situation. vulnerability. North Texas radio and the region’s country music scene in general are much better off without him.
Looking for something new to fill the void in your morning radio? We suggest to listen DJ Vinyl Val, who has just taken over 89.3-FM KNONthe “Monday Morning Blend” show and will help you start your work week every Monday from 7 am to 9 am
Or maybe you’re more of a podcast person? In this case, you might want to know what Tim DeLaughter of Polyphonic frenzy had to say when he visited the UK Strange Brew Podcast to talk about his band’s new cover album, Afflatus. In the lecture, DeLaughter gives a detailed version of the story when asked “Why?” Regarding the release of the cover album, the short film is really “Why not?” Discover this podcast here.
Of course, as always, you can always turn your attention to the music videos, as many new ones have been dropped by artists in the area this week.
The brightest of all comes from the Grammy winner Bobby Sessions, who seeks peace amidst the struggles of city life in the visuals of the Pharrell williams-composed of the single “Cog In The Machine” from his upcoming debut Manifesto LP for Def Jam. As the young Dallas legend himself said on Twitter about the video, don’t blame him if watching this ultimately uplifting and empowering clip makes you want to quit your job.
On a similar tip, Fort Worth’s Meach Pango opens their latest music video “Wander” with the lines “Another day / Waste away hours as they come.” Do we feel a trend here? See for yourself and get ‘caught’ in person when the pop rockers play Gas Monkey bar and grill May 27.
Meanwhile, the Dallas punk band Lazy fist in fact, they just celebrated their own return to the Gas Monkey stage on Sunday at an event that saw frontman Eric Daniels emerge from his pent-up cocoon in a very fine directing performance. Hey, if he doesn’t regret the shorts he wore on stage, so neither can we! Sloth Fist also just released a new music video for the title track from their 2020 release. Mothman is real LP. Check this out:
Then there’s the Oak Cliff rapper, the rocker and sometimes the punk EMOtional Xan, who is here proving that there is no boxing in a genre with his new visuals for his punchy ‘Possessed’ cut.
Hey, after the year we just passed we all wanna let people explore whatever it makes them feel fulfilled.
