Art&Seek's State of the Arts presents "Fort Worth Rising: Is the Indie Music Scene Achieving Liftoff?" With popular music venues like Main at South Side, Lola's, and Shipping and Receiving, and a growing number of music-centered events like Fortress Festival and Friday on the Green, Fort Worth's music scene is earning its "Funky Town" moniker. The city has a history of genre-defying artists, from King Curtis to Delbert McClinton, but now the national fame of Leon Bridges and the Toadies has brought new attention to the talents and ambitions of Fort Worth's independent artists and record labels. Join some of the visionaries in the Fort Worth music scene as they discuss and celebrate the local vibe, the diversity and the collaborations going on here in Fort Worth, the state's first, official "Music Friendly City."

Moderator Jerome Weeks, senior arts reporter and producer for Art&Seek, will be joined by Lou Charle$, hip-hop artist; Rachel Gollay, singer-songwriter; Alec Jhangiani, founder/principal, Fortress Presents; and Amy Miller, program director KXT 91.7. Following the panel, the discussion will continue with bites and sips from Fort Worth locals.
