'''UPDATE 08.29.2007: Okay, SPAMMERS I hate you! There, with that said I am locking FBFT down for a few days while I cleanse the site of the SPAM. In the meantime anybody that actually does deserve to have edit privileges may write to me (phil[dot]leitch [at] gmail[dot]com) and I will slowly restore your privileges, faster if you agree to help clean up some of the SPAM. Also, due to the increasing SPAM FBFT will be making a few changes. First I think we'll be limiting edit privileges to only those that have been approved. If you have made real contributions to FBFT please email me with your username and I'll get you back up and running. Even if you've merely corrected the spelling of your drummers name you can have your editing rights back. Second, I will be moving the site at some point in the near future when I have a little spare time. So, until then please contact me if you want to be able to edit and I apologize for having to lock things down at least temporarily.

UPDATE 09.07.2007: Thank you for being patient while the FBFT is 'locked down' for anti-spam measures. I have successfully updated the wiki software and will be updating a few user accounts (you know who you are) this weekend to let a few people back in. Progress has been a little slower than I had anticipated (mostly because I am busy with other things) but I plan to devote time to getting FBFT back up and running at full steam over the weekend. Thank you and things will be back to normal (though hopefully w/o so much spam) very shortly.

The Fargo Band Family Tree currently has 2,126 pages including bands, band members and record labels. First time visitors may want to learn what a wiki is, how it works and how to contribute to the FBFT. The Fargo Band Family Tree is intended to be a mostly non-biased, factual historical reference to the Fargo/Moorhead indie music scene and it's six degrees of separation with other closely related scenes.

  • Due to excessive spammers we now require that you register before contributing. It's still free and completely open, we just ask that you please create a membership.
  • Please keep the bragging, boasting and self-promotion to a minimum. If you'd like to promote yourself or your band, consider Virb. We do strongly encourage bands to use FBFT as a resource in promoting yourself, just try to keep the hype to a minimum.
  • Feel free to use the "discussion" tab on each page to discuss whatever you desire with regards to bands or individuals, though we ask that you please keep it civil.
  • The decade and alphabetical listings are for Fargo/Moorhead bands only at this point. We are in the process of adding categories to existing pages which solves the problem for alphanumerical listings for other cities.

Fargo Band Family Tree

Originally FBFT was created to document local bands and their lineage so our main focus remains the Fargo-Moorhead indie scene. You can find bands by name (using the alphanumeric links) or by decade if you can remember when you think you saw them.

Alphanumeric

All | A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9

By Decade

70's | 80's | 90's | 00's

Other Bands

We quickly found that not only does the Fargo scene spread as people and bands move but that other regional scenes wanted to be included. We've decided to cover the states of Minnesota and North Dakota and leave it at that.

Pick a City

Minneapolis | Grand Forks | Minot | Mankato | Other ND | Other MN

Other Cool Rock'n'Roll History Stuff

Record Labels | Venues | Shows of Note | Bios

Currently Active Bands

We'd like to highlight bands that are still playing, please add the category of 'Active' to you page if you know how or drop us an email and let us know...we'll be happy to get you included in the list of active bands.

  • If you plan to add a page for a band member please use Phil Leitch as your sample. Need a sample for a band profile page? Please use Fargo All-Stars. Please follow our examples...don't create your own. (Blank Templates can be found in FBFT Best Practices)Thanks.

Pages That Need Some Loving

If you'd like to contribute but aren't quite sure where to start you can take a look at all the stub pages. Stub pages are pages that have very little to no content on them yet but have been created.

Branching Out

While the idea of attempting to become the ultimate universal band family tree is an interesting idea, it's too much for us to want to deal with. We love the Fargo scene and that's our passion. We would love to help others duplicate this effort (not that this is difficult by any means) and work together to standardize and interlink where possible. Contact either Phil or Ryan if you're interested.

Thnx, the yahtzeen staff
