MY FORT WORTH: three shows in the 76104 of 817 tonight
It's a virtual FXFW (fall by fort worth) in one night tonight, cuz there're three shows happening in the Fairmount neighborhood aka Hospital District aka coolest neighb in the city. I'm on a broken foot, so I'll be glad if I can get a spot on the Chat Room patio, within earshot of Birds and Batteries' early night (before midnight) set. I'd recommend this SF (San Francisco) band for the more mellow audience; head out to the Cri Crow-hosted bash at 1919 Hemphill, with headliner Prizzy Prizzy Please if you have two stable ankles, opposable thumbs, and feisty fists to raise. Then there's an underground punk show at an undisclosed (sometimes this helps preserve the spot, on the d.l.) venue, with Florida favorites This Bike is a Pipe Bomb. Whatever you do, get out and check out the bands falling by Fort Worth tonight--on their way to SXSW in Austin.
