The Foxymorons -- David Dewese and Jerry James -- crafted their fourth full-length, Bible Stories, in a Nashville basement while winter raged outside. The friends, who met in high school in Mesquite a decade ago, formed the band while in college, but not before detouring briefly into the world of fashion (their boutique clothing line, American Viceroy, is on hiatus). To celebrate Stories, the fellas will play a homecoming show, of sorts, at 10 p.m. Saturday at Dallas' Double Wide. It's the Foxymorons' first Dallas show in four years. Tickets are $7.
Up-and-coming Fort Worth foursome Phantom Caste plays Lola's Saloon Sixth at 9 p.m. Friday. The electro-rock group just released its debut EP, Hands to the Light, which is available for free download on its Bandcamp page (phantomcaste.bandcamp.com).
One of Fort Worth's truly great bands -- the Quaker City Night Hawks, which counts Sam Anderson, David Matsler, Matt Mabe and Patrick Adams among its ranks -- takes the stage at 9 p.m. Friday at one of the city's equally legendary venues: the White Elephant Saloon in the Stockyards. Brace yourself for ferocious, beer-soaked rock 'n' roll like few others can deliver.
