The days are growing shorter, the nights are getting cooler (well, sort of), and three of the most dreaded words in western civilization are starting to be seen everywhere. “Back. To. SCHOOL.”

Well, we here at Lindby HQ have great news to ease the end-of-summer/back-to-edjumacation blues. This September, we are going to be playing in two amazing festivals, right here in good ol’ Fort Worth! Here are the details for each:

Lindby Nominated for “Best Pop Act” and “Best EP” by The Fort Worth Weekly

0

We are incredibly honored to announce that Lindby has been nominated for “Best Pop Act,” and our latest project, “Christmas with Lindby & Friends,” has been nominated for “Best EP” on The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Ballot!

Excelsior!

Now comes the part where we ask all of you, the viewers (of this post), to ROCK THE VOTE and help us out by placing a vote for us HERE

In addition to the nomination, we also visited Eagle Audio Recording Studios this past Saturday to record a track for the The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Compilation CD. Here is what the Weekly has to say about the comp CD:

“As part of Music Awards every year, we also corral a bunch of nominees, ply them with free food and booze, and force each of them to record a live track for us at Eagle Audio Recording on the Near Southside. We then compile the tunes into a CD that we sell for charity. Through the $5-a-pop sale of our comps over the past several years, we’ve raised nearly $5,000 for our charity sponsors: SafeHaven of Tarrant County and the Tarrant Area Food Bank. Our 2013 comp is coming along just swimmingly. Get ready for new or previously unreleased tracks from Big City Folk, The Breakfast Machine, The Diabolical Machines, Dru B Shinin’, Ice Eater, Jacob Furr & The Only Road, Lindby, The Longshots, Missing Sibling, Patriot, Siberian Traps, Sonic Buffalo, Un Chien, We’rewolves, Year of the Bear, and a few more.”

Also, we will be playing at The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Festival on Sunday, June 23 in the West 7th corridor. The venue and time is still TBA, but we will let you know as soon as we do!

PHEW! VERY exciting things happening around here. Not to mention all of the recording, and preparing we’re doing for upcoming shows! Again, HERE is the link for voting on the Music Awards and stay tuned for more updates as they come. Thanks everyone!

Love,
Lindby
