SHOWS PAGE for more details, but here is a quick-hit list of where we’re going to be and when:

MARCH 14th – Boneshakers (San Antonio), 306 Austin St San Antonio, TX 78215

MARCH 15th – (Austin), South 1st St & W Johanna St

MARCH 16th – Doc’s Motorworks Bar and Grill BLACKBOX SHOWCASE (Austin), 1123 S. Congress Ave. Austin, TX 78704

We are PUMPED to finally get back on the road for a little bit and to be bringing our music along with us. So come on down (or up, over, across, under, etc) and see us jam with the good folks of south Texas and BEYOND!

Finding Fort Live

Recently, we had the distinct privilege to sit down with Lyle Brooks, editor and writer over at FORT LIVE, and talk about Lindby, Erikson, Lindby’s band history, etc. We had a fantastic chat which ranged from Gregorian Chant, to Monty Python, Lord of the Rings, choir tours, the party antics of kids in Scandinavia (Lyle joked that the little hand-held recorder that recorded our conversation was actually broadcasting a radio show to kids in another country. It being Leif Erikson day, we suggested that naturally, the children of Northern Europe would be hearing tonight’s broadcast as they had been up partying all night celebrating the holiday), and topics beyond even those. Lyle was faithfully persistent and constantly roped us back in to talking about Lindby whenever we would digress too far off topic (which was, for better or worse, often), but more often than not, we just got to enjoy hanging out and shooting the breeze with Lyle on yet another fantastic Leif Erikson Day. To read his article on Lindby (an article inside an article? INCEPTION!!), head over to the 817 DAILY section of the Fort Live site. It really is amazing that he put together such a great article on us (which again, Thank you Lyle! You rock!), as we probably didn’t give him as much to work with as other bands probably do. But hey, we had fun!

CHECK IT OUT!

As the title of this post is “Finding Fort Live,” we wanted to give an official shout-out to Fort Live and explain to everyone who maybe hasn’t heard of this magnificent resource exactly what they do. And here it is, in their own words:

“Launched on January 1, 2012, Fortlive.com has been serving up a tasty dish of Fort Worth Live Music News, Local Artist Interviews & Concert Dates of every venue/bar/concert hall in town. We have become the de-facto place to find the latest news & gossip relating to live music in Funkytown. Spread the word and thanks for visiting. For more info, contact us at calendar@fortlive.com”

These guys are the bee’s knees as far as live music coverage in Fort Worth is concerned. Lyle Brooks and Casey Mack work insanely hard at promoting local music and practically live in the music venues so that they can bring coverage to everyone in the metroplex about what’s going down in Funkytown. They have THE most extensive calendar of local live music dates in Fort Worth, and are constantly posting updates on their Facebook Page regarding lineup updates and where crazy-awesome shows are going to be next. Their heart is truly in what they do. I mean, have you ever tried to keep track of where all of your favorite bands are playing? All the places they’re going to be in the next week? Try multiplying that by about 100 and you’ve got what Fort Live keeps track of in about a day. Incredible.

So anyways, go give them some love on their website and their Facebook Page. They really do deserve it, and if you are taking the time to go out and see local musicians rock the house down, you do too.
