Fortress Festival 2018 Review

Fortress Festival 2018 Review

Fortress Fest 2018 returned to Fort Worth’s cultural district last weekend, building upon and developing its previous year’s performance. Re-mapping of the festival grounds was the most noticeable improvement. Last year, the two stages were too far apart, forcing concertgoers to make a tedious back and forth walk from Will Rogers to the Modern Art Museum. The festival this year […]

Fortress Fest 2018 Preview

Fortress Fest 2018 Preview

Fort Worth is known for its deep country roots. Cowboys roam the historic stockyards, tourist ride the mechanical bull at the legendary honky-tonk venue Billy Bobs while the locals line dance, and in the past, the city was one of the primary filming locations for Walker Texas Ranger (can’t get more country than that). But there has been a steady […]

Father John Misty – ‘Pure Comedy’ (album review)

Father John Misty – ‘Pure Comedy’ (album review)

Since 2012, J. Tillman, otherwise known as Father John Misty, has been gradually (and effortlessly) rising in the ranks of the indie scene. Over the course of his two previous records, Misty has managed to not only act as a kind of jester to the serious and often pretentious nature of the industry, but also maintaining a high level of […]

A Look Back at Newport Folk Fest ’16

A Look Back at Newport Folk Fest ’16

Every festival has a signature moment. It could be that one performance people will talk about for weeks after. It might be an expected collaboration that is recorded on every other attendee’s cellphone. Maybe it is a band digging deep into its catalogue to play a song not heard in years. Each Newport Folk Festival does not have a signature moment. […]

Field Medic – “not a normal boy” (video premiere)

Joshua Tillman – a.k.a. Father John Misty – could be credited for reinventing indie folk music with his playful, witty, and sometimes outlandish lyrics. His “oddball folk” opened up doors for a number of new singer-songwriters, like San Francisco resident Kevin Patrick. Under his pseudonym Field Medic, Patrick is creating atypical folk. It’s not music that is heartwrenching or will […]
