Conifer Loves Music!

Happy Olympics, everyone! This time of year always reminds us of the time The United States took on the world in MXC, emerging victorious by a unanimous vote at Takeshi’s Castle, but that’s besides the point. We’re here to share some exciting news with you-Lindby is going to be traveling to the town of Conifer, Colorado this November to play at the Conifer Loves Music music festival! But before we talk about that, let us take you back a few years *insert Wayne’s World “Beedooladoo Beedooladoo Beedooladoo” time traveling sound FX and gestures.”

Back in Lindby’s college days at UTA, before Kyle was whooping the bass and Ali was belting/keyboarding it out and for Lindby, the makeup (and not to mention the sound) of Lindby was vastly different. The lineup included Spurrier on keys (and occasionally guitar), Goodrich on guitar (and occasionally bass guitar), and one of our close friends, David McGinnis (currently a writer for Fellowship of the Screen), was playing drums. ALL of us sang, which became our pseudo calling card when we would call venues to play-we’re a three piece group with a keyboard and 3 vocalists! Nifty!

Anyways, when we met David (through his awesome girlfriend and now wife, Jackie, who studied in the music department with us, lived across the hall from Goodrich, and also played viola on some of the earlier Lindby tracks), he told us about a long-time friend of his named Tyler Phillips, who was (and still very, VERY much is) a musician, and that we should totally meet him at some point.

Our chance finally came when we were invited to open up for Tyler’s band at The Cove down in San Antonio. We were to play a normal set, and then join Tyler for a few songs onstage during his set. We went up, did our thing, felt pretty good about it, and then settled in to watch Tyler’s band.

We were blown away. Tyler and his band were all on point, they were all having a blast onstage, and each song was as unique as the one before it. Not to mention the energy and emotion in each tune was through the roof, so when it was our turn to join Tyler onstage, we had the time of our lives!

No to mention, a few years down the line, Spurrier and Goodrich joined Tyler onstage yet again, but this time for David and Jackie’s wedding! Huzzah! Tada, Tada forever! Watching David cut the wedding cake with The Flame of the West, Andúril, will always be remembered by the three of us for sure. And singing “You Ain’t Going Nowhere,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Helpless,” and so many other awesome tunes at the wedding reception. And Spurrier paying Ben Folds as Jackie walked down the isle…SO MANY MEMORIES. Needless to say, David, Jackie, Tyler, and even David’s immediate family (what with how often we crashed at their place/played games with them when paying in San Antonio) are like family to us, so we cannot WAIT to have good times again with a member of the “San Antonio crew” this November!

But that’s enough reminiscing about the old days (old Lindby fans may even remember when the five of us were three). We’re here to tell you about…THE FUTURE!

As said before, Conifer Loves Music is a music festival that the aforementioned Tyler Phillips is putting on in Conifer, Colorado. Here is a little bit about the festival (from the website):

The Conifer Loves Music Series is a collaboration between Tyler Phillips, owner and operator of Water Pig Music, and StageDoor Theatre. The series features the best of the Denver Metro Area’s musical talented paired with award-winning and critically acclaimed acts from other parts of North America in a highly curated season focused on offering both musicians and audiences with a comfortable and music-focused alternative to the often noisy and over-saturated club scene. StageDoor’s theatre-style seating is limited and puts the audience member face to face with the provocative storytelling of the artists on our 2016-17 CLM roster. While finding its heart in the resurgence of folk and Americana, CLM’s inaugural season includes genre defying acts like Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines, The Will Owen-Gage Trio, and Chris Velan whose unique sounds have been enjoyed by international audiences.

Lindby will be playing with Tyler’s band, The Winchester Local, on November 18 & 19 at 7pm. It is going to be an amazing evening of fun, friends, and music, so if you or anyone you know are going to be in the Denver (more specifically Southwest Denver) area around that time, stop on in and catch the show! It’s going to be a blast and we cannot wait to play for everyone up in the ol Rockies!

Hand Drawn Records SXSW & Green Audio Showcases

Hello everyone!

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:

Green Audio Productions Showcase

Love, Lindby

Heidi-ho, neighborinos!

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!

Love,
Lindby
