Ain't It A Grand Week For Bobby Sessions?

Each week, we take a survey of the local music scene and try to determine which acts in town are really putting in work and seeing it pay off. Which bands have the most intriguing shows coming up? Which bands are getting the most press around town? Which bands have accomplished the most notable feats of late? Based off these criteria, our music writers submit a list to be weighted and compiled into a master list revealed each week in this here space. We like to think it's fairly revealing. Check out our previous Buzz Rankings here.

Since earning his first No. 1 spot in these here Buzz Rankings a few weeks back, Bobby Sessions has just kept on grinding.

This weekend, for instance, he's headlining RBC's big grand opening party in Deep Ellum.

And so, for the third time in five weeks, Sessions finds himself atop our weekly, local music power rankings.

Similarly, acts lower down on that bill — Picnictyme and Blue, the Misfit — earned votes this week as well. Other big shows in town earning acts a few buzz points are Green River Ordinance's headlining turn at Billy Bob's this weekend, Jacob Metcalf's album release at the Kessler last weekend, The Buck Pets' reunion show at that same venue this weekend and Sarah Jaffe's back-to-back nights headlining Dan's Silverleaf last weekend.

Likewise, War Party, whose album we got to premiere this week, will play an official release show for its new sophomore effort this weekend at new Fort Worth venue The Under Where.

And, aside from releasing a Bowie cover as a charity single, the Toadies also premiered a new video via Paste. (We got a behind-the-scenes look at how that sucker was filmed, too.)

Elsewhere: Kaela Sinclair is all over KXT's re-branding project; Jessie Frye is getting her own beer; and Symbolyc One and Glen Reynolds were sampled on that new Macklemore song.

(Also receiving votes: Luke Wade, Picnictyme, Wesley Geiger, The Lash Outs, Tiger Darrow, Solo Lucci, Danny Diamonds, Snarky Puppy, Dixie Chicks, The Unlikely Candidates, Senor Fin, Lil Twist, Lecrae, Blue, The Misfit, Pinkish Black, Tray Haggerty, Chris Holt, Kelly Clarkson, Parallel Play, True Widow, Fooly Faime, In Memory of Man, Summer Dean, Doug Burr, Moon Waves, Mattie Michelle, Relick.)
