The masterful and sometimes mouthy Fernando Perdomo just informed County Grind that his Miami-based label, Forward Motion Records, is turning 1. And in celebration of the momentous occasion, the label and its roster is putting on a benefit show in Fort Lauderdale at Revolution on Thursday, September 29.
With 16 artists part of South Florida's "singer/songwriter movement," the performance should be a sprawling showcase of local talent with Perdomo's own Dreaming in Stereo (but probably not his noise-rock band), Grammy winner Jorge Moreno, and an all-star house band for the duration. Proceeds from the concert are earmarked for Kristi House, a local charity assisting child victims of sexual abuse and their families, and the event is meant to bring awareness to local nonprofit Musicians on Call. Check out the full lineup below:
