Next Sunday, folks. That’s right. The 24th. The 10th Annual Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Festival will feature 48 Fort Worth bands and take place at eight venues in the West 7th Street corridor: Capital Bar (3017 Morton St.), The Durty Crow (2801 Crockett St.), Fred’s Texas Café (915 Currie St.), The Grotto (517 University Dr.) Lola’s Saloon (2736 W. 6th St.), Magnolia Motor Lounge (3005 Morton St.), Poag Mahone’s (700 Carroll St.), and The Pour House (2725 W. 7th St.). The show is free, but you’ll want to bring some foldin’ money for a copy of our annual charity compilation CD featuring new or previously unrecorded tracks from select nominees. Skeleton Coast, The Phuss, Holy Moly, Secret Ghost Champion, Doom Ghost, Foxtrot Uniform, and more, 13 in all, contributed songs to Frequencies, Vol. 3. Proceeds from the $5-a-pop sale of the CDs will go to our charity sponsor, the Tarrant Area Food Bank. And now I give you the full festival lineup.
Remember: Do not park anywhere near a no-parking sign. Your vehicle will be towed.
And to get warmed up for the festival and also to celebrate the release of Frequencies, Vol. 3, we’re throwing a free party at The Wild Rooster (3204 Camp Bowie Blvd., 817-332-WILD) on Thursday, Jun. 21, from 7 to 10 p.m., with performances by Jefferson Colby, Cleanup, and Secret Ghost Champion. That same evening, right down the street at Lola’s, there’ll be a Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Heavy Metal Showcase featuring four of the six nominees in the heavy metal category: FTW, Stone Machine Electric, Southern Train Gypsy, and Black on High. Cover is $6.
