The full lineup for Fort Worth Weekly’s 12th Annual Music Awards Festival is just about done.
For the free daylong concert on Sunday, June 22, at eight venues in the West 7th Street corridor (Lola’s Saloon, The Grotto, Magnolia Motor Lounge, Fred’s Texas Café, The Pour House, Rodeo Goat, Capital Bar, and Poag Mahone’s), we’ve just added the following awesome Tarrant County acts.
And they are: Quaker City Night Hawks, Ice Eater, Telegraph Canyon, The Longshots, Oil Boom, War Party, Green Light Pistol, Nathan Brown, Vicious Firs, Kevin Aldridge & The Appraisers, Joey Green Band, Jody Jones, Toy Gun, Panic Volcanic, Big City Folk, Leon Bridges, Dru B Shinin’, Tidals, Duell, Day Waster, and Devin Leigh.
They will join Pinkish Black, Son of Stan, The Hanna Barbarians, Foxtrot Uniform, The Me-Thinks, Jetta in the Ghost Tree, Un Chien, FOGG, Secret Ghost Champion, Patriot, Ronnie Heart, Jack Thunder & The Road Soda, Huffer, Slumberbuzz, The Fibs, Missing Sibling, Mills & Co., Animal Spirit, Stone Machine Electric, Igneous Grimm, Lindby, The Royal Savages, Lazy Summer, and MidWay as part of the Weekly’s celebration of 817 musical talent.
There will be 48 acts total, all nominees in our 17th Annual Music Awards and all from the greater 817 (or thereabouts), making MAF’14 the biggest and arguably best sampling of Tarrant County pop artistry on Earth.
For up-to-the-minute information on the fest, like us on Facebook.
Complete bills will be announced on Wednesday, June 11.
And while the festival is freeeee, each venue will be staffed by friendly Weekly volunteers just aching to sell copies of Frequencies, Vol. 5. Recorded live one May weekend at Eagle Audio Recording on the Near Southside, the album features 12 new or previously unrecorded tracks by select nominees, including Ronnie Heart, Slumberbuzz, Jetta in the Ghost Tree, The Fibs, Huffer, FOGG, Leon Bridges, Shadows of Jets, Mills & Co., Lazy Summer, The Royal Savages, and Tidals. Proceeds from the $5-a-pop sale of the disc will go toward this year’s charity sponsor, the Tarrant Area Food Bank. Through the sales of previous comp CDs, we’ve raised nearly $7,000 for assorted local charities. For a listen to Vol. 5, check out fortworthweekly.bandcamp.com/releases.
With only three MAF’14 slots left to fill, allow me to ask: Which as-yet unscheduled nominees would you like to see?
