Leon Bridges’ Latest Music Video Is Full of Texas and Love
Leon Bridges’ latest music video for “Beyond” takes place in El Paso, Texas, where the city and its scenery play as the backdrop to the video. Directed by Josh Goleman, the beautiful settings and visuals portray the story of flourishing love. This video is the third one to be released from Leon Bridges' latest album, Good Thing.

Bob Moses Is Back with An Addictive New Track
The Los Angeles duo is back with a new track titled “Heaven Only Knows”, which is the first single to follow up their 2015 debut album, Days Gone By. The four and half minute tune gradually builds into an addictive dark electric dance song that will give your replay button a workout. Bob Moses is known for creating a sound that creatively combines rock and club elements, and this song continues to do just that.
Catch Bob Moses on their upcoming fall tour on October 20th at Trees in Dallas. Tickets go on sale on June 8th.
Weezer Finally Covers The Song Fans Have Been Begging For
After a fan made a humorous Twitter account dedicated to begging Weezer to cover “Africa” by Toto, they finally did it. The iconic southern-California pop-punk band released their brilliant cover on May 29th. If this has you thinking about Weezer’s long list of hits over the last 25 years, their summer tour co-headlined by the Pixies will stop by Dallas on June 27th at the Starplex Pavilion. Weezer is set to play new songs from their latest album Pacific Daydream and of course, some of their well-known hits.

Sad Cops Continues the Emotion in Their New Song
The Denton favorite, Sad Cops has released a new single titled “Numb Hand” that comes from their upcoming EP Transition Songs. “Numb Hand” doesn’t stray away from the emotionally-charged and poetic lyrics that have been a staple throughout the band's discography. Lead singer and guitarist, Grayson Harris, solemnly sings “I want to be happy and I know that you do too.”
Sad Cops will be playing the entire EP at Andy’s Bar in Denton on June 8th to celebrate its release.
