Un-Official Guide to Fort Worth
By Casey Mack

Mad props go out to the Fort Worth Weekly in anticipation of this Sunday's 10th Annual Music Awards & their all day, FREE, SXSW-like music festival spread out across Fort Worth's West 7th St District.  

This event is one of the most fun days of the year in Fort Worth and is highly recommended for anyone who loves live music.  Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the FW Weekly staff, this event will be an annual thing for decades to come!

In today's FW Weekly, they released a killer article that talks about all of the bands nominated for an award!  



This article is a great resource for you to find new and interesting bands to start following around the local scene as well as to help choose which sets you will take in on Sunday.  

While it is quite impossible to be at every show at every venue, it was even more impossible for me, as the creator & concert editor of fortlive.com, to determine whom to go hear.  

After reading thousands upon thousands of local 817 band & fan facebook posts the past 6 months, as well as inputing thousands of concert dates into the database for every band and venue in town, interviewing almost every key local music industry-ite & and after studying & analyzing the lists of bands playing this Sunday at each venue, but most importantly keeping my girlfriend's tastebuds in mind, I figured I would start with these acts whom I feel represent a glimpse into the bright future of Fort Worth's live music scene.  

They arent the most popular or even the most buzzed about bands in town, but from my vantage point, they will be key players & future stars in our scene for years to come.

As veterans of the Weekly Music Awards Festival, we all know shit happens and sometimes the trajectory of what venue you end up at changes. That inevitabily adds to the fun nature of this event!  So don't get stuck at one venue.  

Move around and check out acts you might not normally check out.  You never know when you'll find a diamond in the rough.
