Lights All Night Announces Its Full 2018 Lineup, Post Malone Spends $40,000 On Post Mates Deliveries, Dreamy Life Records Moves Into A New Home & Much More.
Yesterday, Fortress Festival announced the first phase of its 2019 lineup, anchored by the first large-scale Fort Worth performance for headliner Leon Bridges since his sophomore album came out in May.
With 10 of that festival’s 11 acts thus far hailing from Texas, it certainly feels more like Homegrown West righr now than its first two incarnations. As for the rest of those names? You can find at the link above. Beyond that, two-day passes are currently available here for $79, but they’ll increase in price by $30 once the rest of the lineup is revealed in January.
Of course, that wasn’t the only big returning fest lineup announced yesterday. Also coming back for another round is the ninth annual, end-of-year, EDM-heavy Lights All Night, which this year go down on December 28 and 29 run at Dallas Market Hall. Following its own early act announcement in August, LAN announced on Monday that it was adding Kaskade and Excision (among others) to a bill already set to feature heavy-hitters like Diplo, Gucci Mane, Rezz, Tiesto and tons more. The whole bill can be seen here. Oh, and for the rest of the week, you can nab two-day passes here for $120 plus fees. Payment plans are available, too!
If $120 sounds like a lot of money to throw down on concert tickets, just know that it’s nothing compared to the amount of money that Post Malone spent on biscuits this summer on his way to becoming Post Mates’ No. 1 customer. That’s due, in part, to the $8,000 he spent through the delivery service to get 10,000 Popeye’s biscuits brought to his Coachella party. In total, dude dropped more than $40,000 on some 3,000 items in a 400-day period. They should just go ahead and rename it Posty Mates already, huh?
Much in the same way those reporters pulled back the curtain on Post’s spending habits, the New York Times recently peeled back the layers on Kacey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn” in the latest episode of its “Diary of a Song” series (seen below) and in this accompanying article. It’s a great behind-the-scenes deconstruction of the opening track from her CMA-nominated 2018 record.
Moving on, Fort Worth record store Dreamy Life Records and Music is, well, moving on down the road, relocating from its old home in the Fairmount Community Library to a new shared spot inside musician-owned bar/music venue Main At South Side. Fittingly, with its relocation inside a venue, the shop will also expand the selection of live music accessories (think: strings, cables, picks, drum sticks, etc.) it carries. Check out the full selection when it re-opens on November 1.
Another way to push album sales, of course, is the production of music videos. Hence the number of new clips we’ve got to share this week.
First up, SRSQ unveiled the visual treatment for her “Permission” single from her grief-laden debut LP that deals with the death of her Them Are Us Two bandmate. Read Pitchfork’s review of the album here, and check the video below.
Dallas’ Royal Sons also released its latest LP in recent week, with vinyl copies start shipping this week. In the meantime, you can listen to the Fort Worth blues rockers on your computers while checking out the video for their “Let It Burn” single.
Meanwhile, we posted this morning about how Trapboy Freddy stands out on a track alongside a whole slew of national rap superstars. Well, in the clip for his “Bankroll” video he gets the spotlight all to himself.
Also hard is Asian Doll, who tweeted a while back that she was changing her name to Asian Da Brat to differentiate from other Dallas-based Doll rappers. She now seems to be going back on that call, declaring herself the “hardest doll” throughout her new “First Off” single.
And for her return to the spotlight, Cardi B gives us a present in the form of her new “Money” single, which was produced by Mesquite’s J White Did It, who was also responsible for her “Bodak Yellow.”
Finally, we’ll leave you as we usually do with some quick-hitting notes.
• If you want to, you can read up on the new David Crosby album, which was produced by Snarky Puppy’s Michael League, and how that relationship came to be. We did that today, and we enjoyed it!
• Just a couple weeks after what we were told was likely Terminal’s last-ever show, the recently reunited band be returning to 2513 Deep Ellum on Monday, November 5 to play alongside Underoath and Crown the Empire. Like that last show, this one is a benefit for Terminal’s Lucas Starr, who is battline Stage 4 colon cancer.
