It is coming upon the local music awards season, and the Fort Worth Weekly has just released their ballots for 2010. We've received a nomination under "Best Rock", and we need your vote!!
This is our 4th nomination in various categories by The FW Weekly in as many years, with our first nod in 2007, but we've only taken home a trophy once with last year's win for "Song Of The Year - Alexander Stone". So, we need TWO things from you to help us continue down the right track!
2.) SPREAD THE WORD

Exit 380 is headlining a Cystic Fibrosis Benefit show this Friday night @ Lola's Saloon on 6th Street in Ft Worth. Below is the info straight off the benefit's invite page:
"Please join me to raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease that causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive tract. It is one of the most common chronic lung diseases in children and young adults, and may result in early death.
Chris Orr is on my team and his cousin has CF, along with many others that need our support!!!!
Exit 380, Secret Ghost Champions, and Boomin Gen Mills will be playing!!! Be sure and check these bands out on Facebook or Myspace before the show! : )
If you can't make the event and wish to still donate, please visit the following link and make a donation today: http://www.cff.org/Great_Strides/MarloEscamilla
Or if you would like to learn more about Cystic Fibrosis and the 2010 Great Strides Walk, please visit http://www.cff.org/great_strides.
Thank you to Lola's 6th Street, Exit 380, Secret Ghost Champions, and Boomin Gen Mills for helping me put this event together!"
It's an all ages venue, with only a $6 donation at the door; all proceeds going to the CF event. Our good friends from Boomin Gen Mills (whom Borden is currently recording and producing an album) and Secret Ghost Champion are opening the eve.
We'll be mixing our upbeat rock tunes with our newer Townies material, so the night should have a very light and tasty feel to it. Check out the setlist below:
Quid Pro Quo
Street Trash View
Run For The Gold
Daddy Was A Freight Train
Sinful Bliss & Sweet Remorse
Caught In A Lie
Love Lost It's Youth

Back to the studio!
We have some unfinished business to work over with our "Townies" side, so we're heading back to Borden's Fort Worth studio to get a new single called "Moonshiner Run" on record. It was one of our favorite tracks from last year's numerous demo sessions, and it nearly made the EP cut.
We reconfigured the song live a few weeks ago at City Tavern, and again for Lola'spaloozza, and it felt so good that it seemed wrong to relegate it to the live realm. Look out for a single release of the track in the coming weeks, most likely at http://exit380.bandcamp.com.
