So there's this three-day music festival of sorts happening next month in Forth Worth called, fittingly, the Fort Worth MusicFest. And it's the fest's third annual go-'round. And it helps raise money for college scholarships for area kids. And it takes place August 21-23, costing $15 per general admission ticket each day if you buy in advance here, or $20 on the day of the show if you're lazy. And it's all taking place at the Masonic Grand Lodge (3520 E. Berry & Highway 287). And The Bar-Kays are playing it on Friday, Aug. 21.
But, get this: On Saturday, Aug. 22, so, too, are Morris Day and The Time! Which gives me an excuse to post the above video. And to mention that talkie director Kevin Smith is coming to town on November 7 to talk at the House of Blues for an event called "Silent Bob Speaks."
Noish, noish, noish.
