Missed FoCoMx? No worries. Check this out.

Last month, the Fort Collins Music Association hosted the area's first ever all local music festival, dubbed the Fort Collins Music Experiment (FoCoMx for short). As hard to believe as it is that such an event never existed until this year, it's not difficult to see that the supply definitely exists to generate such a demand. Fact is, the Northern Colorado scene is just exploding with an array of exciting acts from the established bands you're likely already aware of such as Tickle Me Pink, the Heyday and the Northern Way (formerly Set Forth) to emerging artists such as Stella Luce, Wire Faces, Fierce Bad Rabbit, Candy Claws, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Otem Rellik, Arliss Nancy, Motorhome, Piggies and a ton more. If you didn't happen to make it up for the inaugural edition of FoCoMx, luckily the fine folks at CTV had their cameras rolling and captured you might've missed. Check out the clips after the jump.
