A long, long time ago…

…in a house on Atwood Drive, three high school freshmen decided it would be fun to start a band. Enter Nick Spurrier, Stuart Hausmann, and Nick Goodrich. The three would go on to do amazing things (eat Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, get the cops called on them, etc), write amazing songs (Move On – a virtual powerchord symphony, Furnination – a song based off of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, etc), and play amazing shows (the 3-song set during Mrs. Baker’s Freshman English class, The various FMHS talent shows, etc).

Why is this important? Why does this matter? What does Mrs. Baker have to do with anything and where is she now? Well, ten (10) years ago (that’s ONE DECADE, PEOPLE!), this happened:

That’s right, folks. “Lindby” (even though back then we were known as “5 In The Eye”) was, for all intents and purposes, born ten (10) years ago yesterday. We have seen a LOT of members come and go over the years, and we have truly treasured each practice, gig, recording session, road trip, etc we’ve had with them. We really could not have gotten to where we are today without each and every one of them, and for that we say say thank you! For those of you reading this who have stuck it out with us throughout the years, thanks for hanging in there with us. Again, we could never have done it without you. Your patience, support, and love have really kept us going. For those of you who are relatively new to Lindby, thanks for your support as well! We have really been encouraged by your love, spirit, and kindness towards us and we have some FANTASTIC things in store for you (well everyone, really). It has really been a wild and crazy ride for us and we feel like we’re only getting started. So raise your goblet of rock, and join with me in saying:

Happy 10th, Lindby!
