Local Music Month is in full effect and the celebration lasts all month long! Be sure to check out the featured artist of the day and check out our Instagram to keep up with special events. We started our favorite month of the year in style with new music from Dallas garage punk band Overshare, a new jam from Fort Worth rocker Averi Burk, and a cinematic indie song from Wesley Jensen and the Penny Arcade out of Denton.
You can see the full playlist after the highlights, and don’t forget to sign up for your free tickets to Get Loud With KXT at Klyde Warren Park on October 20th. If you are an artist from North Texas, then we want to check out your songs! You can submit them here.
According to the band’s YouTube page, the debut single from the North Texas band was inspired by strong female artists like Patti Smith, Celia Cruz, and movies like Pulp Fiction. The result is the hard-hitting, empowering rock anthem “I’ve Got Guns.”
The Dallas indie-pop artist wrote and produced “Medusa” herself a few years ago while she was processing the trauma and misogyny she experienced in the music industry. She recently released the song in hopes that it can be a beacon of hope to others as they navigate their own experiences.
What started as Oak Cliff neighbors getting together to jam has grown into an eight-piece ensemble that celebrates soul and funk. You’ll find “Six Feet Down” on the group’s debut, self-titled album.
