In recent years, Fort Collins has produced and fostered its fair share of acts, from Brotherhood of Dae Han and the Heyday to Set Forth and Roe. Now our neighbor to the north has its very own local-music festival, thanks to the fine folks at the Fort Collins Musicians Association. The event, dubbed Fort Collins Music eXperiment, FoCoMX for short, will coincide with the city's local-music appreciation month, is slated to take place over the course of two days at various venues across the city on Friday, April 10, and Saturday, April 11, and will feature nearly a hundred NoCo bands. Full lineup will be announced next Friday, February 20. Tickets for FoCoMX, which range from $10-$15, will go on sale on Sunday, March 1, and be available for purchase via interweb at BrownPaperTickets.com or on site at the Finest or Rockin' Robins.
