We spent a day at Green Audio with Ben Napier and Zach Tucker laying down some tunes live in the studio for you to enjoy! They range from video game tunes to jazz and more. They are all FREE to download, so give them a listen and share them with your friends and family. Scroll down to give it a listen. Happy Autumn, everybody!
HERE is where you can go to download the tunes individually, or as a whole album. Again, happy autumn and get ready for more holiday cheer really soon!
Fall is finally here! To celebrate, we are playing two shows at UTA on October 1st and 17th, AND two fabulous festivals on October 11th in both Dallas and Fort Worth!
The first is Party Madness 64 at The Door in Dallas. We will be playing in the afternoon (more details on ALL the bands’ set times will be forthcoming shortly). Check out the FACEBOOK EVENT for more details, and to keep up with announcements. There’s going to be a Mario Kart 64 Tournament AND a cosplay contest! w00t! pwn them n00bs!
The second is the Fall Arts Goggle in Fort Worth! We’re going to be playing over at the Park Place Village at 9pm, but there is going to be a PLETHORA of artists displaying their work (be it physical or musical) all day, so be sure check out as much as you can! We absolutely LOVE playing at the Arts Goggle and can’t wait to do it again. We always meet awesome people, make new friends, and see some ridiculously good art (again, musical and physical) to boot! Yeehaw!
So there you go! We’ve got a busy October planned, and so much still to do before the year is up! Again, Happy Autumn to you all and stay tuned, because we’re going to be releasing some music next week for everyone to enjoy as well!
What? It’s June already? That can’t be right.
WELL IT IS!
And with summertime comes music festivals!
We are going to be playing at Clearfork Music Festival again, and we are STOKED! We had a fantastic time last year and made a bunch of new friends, and this year it’s going to be even better. The Festival has moved down the river to the Panther Island Pavilion, and will be taking place on August 30th, so mark those calendars! Not to mention, The Black Angels are headlining! w00000t! Check out the poster for the current music lineup for the festival (with more to be announced soon):

We’ll post details as soon as we get them, but in the meantime grab ya some tickets and we’ll see you guys on August 30th!

We are extremely honored to be nominated alongside such amazing, talented artists in the Fort Worth music scene, and are truly thankful for fans like you who continue to drive us in making music for the world! We love you and could never do it without you!
This past Saturday, April 26 2014, a new chapter was writting in the tome of Lindby.
A new album? Epic show? Fresh merch?
Not even close. Last Saturday, ALI & KYLE GOT MARRIED! W000000T! Congratulations to the both of you! We love you both so much and are beyond pumped and honored to enter this journey with you. Below are a few photos from the weekend. Congrats again, you guys!
Well February has come and gone, and things in the studio are coming along swimmingly. Expect to see more updates as we chug along in there, and be sure to follow us on twitter (@lindbymusic) for updates AS THEY HAPPEN. What a world! But yes, we’re looking to have to finished product done by Fall 2014, so yeehaw!
Anyways, Now that it’s March (and Ali and Kyle have nailed down more wedding details), it’s back to the stage we go! You can check out the SHOWS page for more info, but we wanted to let everyone know about two shows in particular (which also happen to be the next two shows we’re playing).
First off is the Hand-Drawn Records unofficial showcase at SXSW! It’s going to be a The Brasshouse in Austin, and is going to be a KILLER showcase, with plenty of bands from the DDFW and more. We’ll be on the Brass Stage at 3pm on March 15th, but stick around for all of the incredible music before and after us! If you’re in Austin, swing by and say hi!
Next is a showcase that was rescheduled due to Mother Nature’s blue-screen-of-death moment we had this past Sunday. Lindby, Droidekka, and possibly one other soon-to-be-announced band will be playing the Green Audio Showcase at The Grotto on March 23rd. It’s $5 to get in, and 100% of that goes towards funding Ben Napier’s own Green Audio Productions in Fort Worth. Kick it with some local music and support the scene in more ways than one!
There ya have it! A busy March, and we’ve got an even busier April on the way (ALI AND KYLE ARE GETTING MARRIED FTW OMG OFC PWNAGE), so stay tuned and love your mother!
Oh, and if you were too lazy to go through all that, here are the Facebook events for each of those shows:
Happy New Year everyone! We hope you have had a great start to 2014, and have already made it one heck of a year! Here at Lindby HQ, we are going to be heading back into the studio for the month of February to really get the wheels rolling on our next full-length album, AND continue laying down tracks for our collaboration album with the incredible, the amazing…”DOUG FUNNIE“! We’ll be back at it for the month of March, so stay tuned for studio updates, shows updates and more!
It’s that time of year again-CHRISTMAS MUSIC TIME! Here is Lindby’s 2nd Christmas EP entitled “Christmas On My Street.” It features two original Christmas tunes (“Christmas On My Street” and “Lights On A String“), a Doctor Who-themed rendition of “Holly Jolly Christmas” (“Timey Wimey Christmas“), a synth-y & swung version of J.S. Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” (“Jesu, Joy Of Synth“), and a special, Christmas-y remix of “Lights On A String” done by tanner4105 (“Lights On A Machine“). “Christmas On My Street” also features “Larry g(EE)” on vocals! We cannot thank all the people who contributed to the making of this EP, and are truly grateful for the time and effort they put into helping us out. So with that, scroll on down and enjoy “Christmas On My Street!” And don’t forget-you can download it FOR FREEEEE! Merry Christmas, everyone!

We have been releasing one tune a week throughout the month of October, but here they all are now, so you can enjoy them all in one place! Each tune features one or more of our musician pals from around DFW, who are AMAZING people and incredibly talented musicians. We cannot thank everyone who helped us out with this enough, and are truly thankful to have the opportunity to work with such gifted people-all of whom are right in our own backyard (the back yard of North Texas, that is)! And before we forget, there are available for a FREE DOWNLOAD as well. FREE DOWNLOAD. FREE DOWNLOAD. So if you want to take them with you on the go, you can do it to it!

The last couple of months have been CRAZY busy for us here at Lindby HQ, but it has been wonderful all the same. We’ve been spending most of our time in the studio (check out The Lindby Bandcamp Page to see what we’ve been up to…and expect a post about it soon!), but we’ve also been playing a lot of shows and meeting tons of fantastic new folks!
Here now, for your enjoyment, are some videos of us performing at the Fort Worth Rock Assembly II, covering the music of David Bowie. We had a BLAST! In addition to that, we’ve also got a couple of videos of us at the 8-bit Bonanza, including one that features our good friend Doug Funnie! So check ‘em out, enjoy this awesome weather we’ve been having, and love your mother!
