As you no doubt recall, the Fort Worth Music Festival (nee Jazz by the Boulevard) kicks off tonight in Cowtown with something of a new vendetta at play.
The festival, while still pandering somewhat to its jazz roots, will this year expand to include more a rock and indie rock bent, courtesy of Meat Puppets, Dawes and Lucero. There's also a significantly larger share of local rock outfits taking part in the festivities. Among those locals performing at this year's semi-inaugural affair at the Will Rogers Memorial Center: Telegraph Canyon, Seryn, The Orbans, Calhoun, Whiskey Folk Ramblers and Quaker City Night Hawks, not bad, not bad.
Even better: Courtesy of the folks behind the festival, we've got two free pairs of VIP passes to the event to hand out to some lucky DC9 readers. Want in? You got it. Just hit the jump to find out how you can enter.
We're gonna run this one in old-school, first-come-first-serve fashion: First two people to email me, starting right now, with the words "Let's Build a Fort!" in the subject line win the passes. It's that easy. So, y'know, jump on it! Good luck!
