Forty-eight bands, all from the great 817 and all nominees in Fort Worth Weekly’s 17th Annual Music Awards, will converge on eight venues in the West 7th Street corridor at 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 22, as part of the Weekly’s 12th Annual Music Awards Festival. Admission is free, but bring your foldin’ money for some cold, frosty beverages and for copies of Frequencies, Vol. 5. Recorded mostly live one May weekend at Eagle Audio Recording on the Near Southside, the album features 12 new or previously unrecorded tracks from select nominees, including Ronnie Heart, FOGG, and Slumberbuzz. Proceeds from the $5 sale of the disc will go to this year’s charity sponsor, the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
Capital Bar (3017 Morton St., 817-820-0049): Joey Green Band (9 p.m.), Kevin Aldridge & The Appraisers (8 p.m.), Mills & Co. (7 p.m.), Big City Folk (6 p.m.), Devin Leigh (5 p.m.), Green Light Pistol (4 p.m.).
For your convenience, we will publish a fancy pocket guide in next week’s issue (June 18) that will include the schedule, the addresses and phone numbers of the venues, a map, band bios, and more. See ya on Sunday, June 22.
