Dead Mockingbirds
"Dead Mockingbirds rock and roll the nails out of the walls. Influences may be placed upon them, but simply put: they're loud, wild, and a lot of fun. They hit like a summer in Dallas: hot and sweaty. Riffs hang heavy like a wet flag, sticking to the side of your mind and will have you humming hooks for days. A. MUST. SEE."

- C.J. Vanston
Obnoxiously catchy noise, written with precise laziness.
Dead Words
dirty pop. Fort Worth, TX
The Infamists
The Infamists
"With a sound that is very reminiscent of a younger, earlier prototype of The Sword's style, The Infamists put on a great show in the hot and humid basement of J&J's at this year's Oaktopia Festival. With a strong mix of original tracks and covers, The Infamists gave a varied set that was entertaining and, frankly, exactly what rock 'n' roll is all about. No frills, no BS – rock at its core with good tunes that hit hard when the band needs to and eases off the gas pedal whenever the hell the group wants. In between songs there was a quick, "Hey we're The Infamists and we want you to have good time" but that was about it. Song, boom. Song, boom. Song, boom. No Bono-esque, mid-show speeches or any of that unnecessary mainstream crap. Just three dudes up there playing music for a crowd of happily drunk college kids – and I know I wouldn't have had the show any other way."
-Alex Ancira, Sofa King news.

"Musical expression in Denton is a very popular form of communicating the creativity that the city possesses. Along with the Jazz and Blues festivals, there are always good, free local shows right off the square. As I was scavenging through the Denton musical acts, I came across The Infamists at a show off the square, a three piece with the good ol' riff rock tones that epitomize rock and roll, hard and straight to the point. The Infamists are one of the few bands you can find that exceed your live expectations. They don't mess around and tell you 30 minute life stories in between songs. They saddle up and ride their set-list with a seemingly renewed energy after each song. A band that people often relate them to is Wolfmother, however the two are vastly different in the way they play. If you're a Rock fan, you will enjoy The Infamists. Be on the lookout for their EP coming soon!"
-Chuck Stark, The Notorious Note.
The Confounded
The Confounded
Rock bands are a dime a dozen, and while the genre itself seems to be laid to the side of the road, there are four musicians who do not have a problem carrying rock’s flag. They are The Confounded.
Born out of Fort Worth, Texas, The Confounded create passionate, pulsating, head quaking, body shaking, foot stomping, fist pumping ROCK N’ ROLL! With the release of their self-titled EP, the band has put their best foot forward in effort to kick down the door of the music scene.
Songs like Words, The Grind, and Before You are prime examples The Confounded’s punchy, aggressive style of rock.
The Confounded are not here to reinvent the wheel, but they are here to remind everyone what rock is, was, and what it could be…
Caliche Burnout
Caliche Burnout
Straight ahead rock and roll that could only come from Fort Worth. Featuring current and former members of the Chiefs, Gideons, Ghostcar, the Mockingbird Cartel, Seamus Stout, Suiciety, and Suntouched.
