Here’s the lineup for Fort Worth Weekly’s 11th Annual Music Awards Festival (MAF’13), taking place on Sunday, June 23, at eight venues in the West 7th corridor. Admission to the festival is freeeee. If you’re the kind of person whose familial or work obligations prevent you from getting out on weekends to experience all of the cool bands in town that we beat you over the head with every week, well, no need to thank us (though a shot of Maker’s would not be rejected outright; just sayin’). And be sure to tell all your friends, family members, co-workers, mail carriers, and fellow Target shoppers. And if you have to get a sitter, then by God, man, get one already!
