Hold my beer. What was that? Run The Jewels is set to perform in the 817 area code? You sure about that? You sure it wasn't the 214 or 972? Or even the 940 area code??
A week later it's finally hitting me; this is not a drill. I repeat: THIS IS NOT A DRILL !!!
You simply don't ever see the likes of an act as relevant as RTJ in the 817. For that reason alone the team behind Fortress Festival should be commended.
While RTJ more than deserves the headliner moniker, the entire lineup from top to bottom is staggeringly impressive.
To celebrate last week's lineup announcement, we thought what better way to raise our glasses than to collate music videos for every act set to perform at the end of April.
Without further ado, we present you with the Fortress Festival lineup ... music vid style ... Pt. I

about the word writer person:
Prewitt Scott-Jackson writes Dad poetry & short fiction when he's not hyping and typing for Fort Worth Noise. His writing can be found in Ghost City Press (New York), Five 2 One Magazine (Los Angeles), Prairie Schooner (University of Nebraska Press) and Sick Lit Magazine (Texas), among others. He prefers short walks on the beach because – and I quote – “It’s really hard to walk on sand.”
