This week we started the show with a special treat- highlighting songs from The Necro Tonz and Tripping Daisy. They are just two of the bands that will be playing Homage Nation night at the Kessler Theater. The show celebrates the music of Alice Cooper and the release of the documentary Alice Cooper: Live from the Astroturf. We also heard new music out of Fort Worth from Averi Burk and Da Deputy, and Arlington’s A-Wall released the new song “Solo.” Matt Nestor, the former lead singer of the band Tom Devil and the Wizard, sent in a solo track from Farmers Branch called “Stars,” we checked out the sultry “All Night” from Denton’s L25, The Wee-Beasties shouted out Deep Ellum venue Three Links in their new song “It’s All Happening,” and we heard a rocking new tune called “Sports Talk” from Dallas band Cool Jacket. Then, we wrapped up the show with the cinematic new song “Face To Face” by Dallas artist River Jude.
You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
Arlington artist A-Wall blew up on TikTok last year and has over 179 million streams on Spotify. “Solo” is the second release from his upcoming album Autopilot, which should be out in October.
(Warning- this song contains language that some might find offensive.)
Burk is hot off of a performance at the Amplify 817 Showcase Concert, which is where she debuted the heavy-hitting song “Outside”.
Jude says he makes the kind of music that can make you happy and sad at the same time. This holds true for “Face To Face,” which keeps a cinematic feel while telling the story of love lost.
