'Tis the season to rock! At least it was recently for North Texas yelpers in Fort Worth and Denton, where three nights of back-to-back-to-back live music set the stage for all of us to get amped to live tunes at Yelp's Backstage Pass! Monday night kicked things off at Magnolia Motor Lounge, where Morning People took the stage with their own brand of funk and roots rock. Buffalo Trace and Fireball Whisky poured throughout the night (and throughout each night)! Yelpers also got their Backstage Passport stamped to enter a drawing for a seven course dinner for two (and a bottle of sake) from Shinjuku Station!
Things headed north to Denton on night two, when we stormed Rubber Gloves Recording Studios for some Real Ale-enhanced live jams courtesy of indie band Bad Design and the southern fried rock of Old Warhorse. We warmed ourselves up with some Buffalo Trace and Fireball Whisky and head-bopped into the night.
We rocked. We rolled. We photo-bombed the bands. We hit three great rooms (culminating in our last night with Un Chien taking the stage at Lola's). Yelper Chris P came away the lucky grand prize winner (and deserved it: he hit all three nights!) — all in all, a terrific way to lean into the holidays – good cheer, great bands and timeless tunes!
Until next year, SYOY!
