We’ve parsed through the lineups and cut through the noise to bring you a monthly roundup of the best live shows in Fort Worth.
Uncle Toasty Fort Worth Vinyl Release at Lola’s Saloon
This highly anticipated concert has been on the books for a while. Uncle Toasty has an origin story that reads like a comic book backstory. The “super-sonic, organically modified beast was created in a lab studio in 2020.” The rock quintet is all about having fun. And being loud. Catch this quirky-yet-lovable ensemble early this month at Lola’s Saloon.
Ryker Hall Performs at The Post at River East
Since releasing his debut solo record in 2018, singer-songwriter Ryker Hall has cultivated a fan base that can’t get enough of his “Americana emo” vein of rock. Four recent song releases show Hall’s ability to pull the captivating sonic aspects of ‘90s alternative rock into something fresh and reimagined. You can catch this local favorite on March 11 at The Post at River East.
Second Annual Crawdang!
The Bearded Lady is teaming up with Tulips FTW for a second annual crawfish boil. Start your day off at either locale for great drinks and live music. The Bearded Lady has a New Orleans-inspired menu that features deep-fried boudin balls, muffuletta-style grilled cheese, crawfish mac and cheese and more. The Mississippi Burlesque Project and Conga Square Brass Band are slated to provide live entertainment.
Fort Worth African American Roots Music Fest
After premiering online in 2021, the 2022 Fort Worth African American Roots Music Festival will be held in person at the historic Southside Preservation Hall. According to the website, the festival "was created to deepen the history and broaden the local arts scene by sowing the seeds of a new music community, and placing Fort Worth in the vanguard bringing awareness to an often forgotten piece of America's musical history." FWAAMFest headliners include Justin Robinson, Kaia Kater and Jake Blount.
William Clark Green Performs at Billy Bob’s Texas
Whelp, Willie Nelson canceled his much-anticipated show this month, but Billy Bob’s Texas has plenty of high-profile acts to keep you music lovers enraptured with the world’s largest honky-tonk. Texas native William Clark Green performs later this month. In 2012, Green had a No. 1 regional hit, “She Likes the Beatles,” and three top ten singles on the Texas country charts.
Laugh Your MASS Off
Arielle Isaac Norman has been a regular on the Austin comedy scene since 2015. The creator and co-host of Gender Fluids Podcast and comedy festival regular brings her charm and irreverent, politically-charged humor to Main and South Side at the end of March. No cover but tips are encouraged during and after the show.
