Catch Local Musicians All Over Your TV Dial This Week.

Get your DVRs ready, folks. Why? Well, a few reasons, actually.

In case you missed it the first time around, the episode of Cheaters in which former Doom Ghost drummer Jeremy Brown is caught in a bathtub with his real-life wife by his TV “girlfriend” is set to re-air this Saturday night. (Sorry to burst your bubble if you're one of the handful of folks left in town still under the impression that the show was authentic on any level.)

Meanwhile, joining The Polyphonic Spree and Brown with a late-night national television appearance of her own is Sarah Jaffe, who will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live next Tuesday. More important, though? It will give Jesse Hopkins, who plays in Jaffe's backing band, a leg up in the old sibling rivalry department, as he doubles the times his brother Daniel Hopkins has appeared on the program.

(You may remember that the brothers appeared together on Kimmel's show in 2006 when their band Radiant won a contest that allowed them to open for My Chemical Romance.)

But these aren't the only artists who've received a bit of national shine this week. In a New York Times piece on doing holiday shopping in independent record shops, three Texas store owners were interviewed and asked for recommendations. Bill Wisener of Bill's Records here in town heaped mounds of praise on Dallas natives Tiger Darrow and Emily Elbert.

For your further holiday gifting consideration, a pair of local super groups have EPs set for release. Fort Worth's Vorvon — which features Steve Steward (Oil Boom, Epic Ruins) and Will Wells (One-Fingered Fist) both on bass, Ray Liberio (Epic Ruins, Stoogeaphilia) on drums, and Rick Sharp on guitar — will be releasing their appropriately-titled EP Bass Mountain this Saturday at Lola's Saloon.

Similarly, the Denton faux Irish folk outfit Hares on the Mountain announced that their upcoming Army EP would be released digitally sometime within the next two weeks, too.

Further down the horizon, Matador Records co-owner Gerard Cosloy has announced that he would be releasing the debut album from Sweet Talk via his Austin-based imprint 12XU on January 22. The upstart garage act consists of former Uptown Bums and Mind Spiders guitarist Stephen Svacina, bassist Harpal Assai of Video and Wiccans, and Mitch Frazier formerly of the Indiana-based outfit Church Shoes. The band's first single, “Pickup Lines” is currently streaming on Cosloy's SoundCloud page.

And, finally, Nervous Curtains drummer Robert Anderson welcomed a daughter, Lucy, into the world earlier this week. While this is certainly good news, the band has canceled its upcoming show at Macaroni Island as a result, meaning that this Friday's show at Double Wide with Blackstone Rangers and Skeleton Coast will be the last opportunity to catch the band live until February of next year.
