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.
