Music minute: Mount Righteous and Fox and the Bird at the Double Wide, and more.

Posted 7:45am on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013

Around 10 p.m. Friday, a pair of North Texas acts that have been rather quiet the last couple years -- Grapevine's Mount Righteous and Dallas' Fox and the Bird -- will take the stage at Dallas' Double Wide to perform. (They're joined on the bill by the Southern Renaissance's Michael Donner.) While Mount Righteous continues to work on a follow-up to its 2010 sophomore album, Fox and the Bird is gearing up to release its first of three EPs planned for this year in April. Expect an evening that skews folksy, but with heaping helpings of good vibes. Tickets are $7 in advance via Prekindle.com or $10 at the door.

The flood of great music roaring out of Fort Worth continues unabated with the release of Siberian Traps' debut LP, Blackfoot (following the release of a pair of EPs in 2011). The foursome ( Seth Reeves, Parker Donaldson, Peter Wierenga and Mike Best) makes country music that often sounds as if it's being ambushed by psychedelic rock; the cumulative effect is powerful. Siberian Traps will celebrate Blackfoot's release at 9 p.m. Thursday at the Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge with support from the Longshots and Skeleton Coast. Admission is $10 for over-21s and $15 for under-21s, and in addition to the show, attendees will get a free copy of Blackfoot to take home.
