Over in Fort Worth, they're getting not one, but two brand new clubs: Lola's Stockyards and The Longhorn Saloon. It's all owned by the same folks who own Lola's on 6th Street, so you know the booking is gonna stay solid. Both clubs have plenty to offer this weekend. Friday night brings Gary P. Nunn and Jack County to the Longhorn Saloon, and The Quebe Sisters Band and Ginny Mac will be at the Stockyards. The next night, Eleven Hundred Springs and The Derailers are playing the Longhorn Saloon, with The King Bucks, The Orbans (ex-Lifters) and Glen Farris playing at the Stockyards. Also, since both clubs are within walking distance of each other, they're offering a special deal Friday and Saturday where $10 gets you into either club.
You probably know that Flickerstick is calling it quits. You probably also know about the big House of Blues show with Calhoun, Stella Rose, and Holy Moly. You may not, however, have heard that Flickerstick is playing tonight at Lola's on 6th Street. They're calling it a "rehearsal jam". I call it a great opportunity to see the band in what is easily my favorite club in Fort Worth.
And here's the rest of what you have to look forward to:
- A.M. Ramblers, The O's, The Make Believers (Andy's Bar)
- The Burning Hotels, Airline, The Lemurs (The Moon)
- Fishing For Comets (Jack's Backyard)
- Chris Holt, Dirty Birds, Brian Miller, Paul Ramon (Opening Bell Mosaic)
But of course, you really want to be at Dada Saturday night, right? Hey, I gotta promote, right?
