FBO: 'Foreshadowing & FBO'S First Triptych'


The doubled vertically arranged triptych, above, outlines the Failed Bands of Oklahoma's tentative plans to 'reach the panhandle' on July 14 and go to a to-be-adopted venue in Guymon, OK, and play a show. The show will tribute failed bands, and aim to entertain while garnering press coverage for failed bands.

The triptych is not an accidental gesture. The eighth annual TRIPTYCH FESTIVAL is scheduled this April in Glasgow.

In the festivals own words:
Triptych continues to highlight Tennent's Lager's allegiance to exceptional music, from grassroots agitation to international ardour, ­with an annual and unparalleled bill

Yes! Well said! While the FBO will be unable to attend this year's event in Glasgow, the FBO is happy to invite the Scotland-based festival to attend the FBO's panhandle show on July 14. A formal invitation will be sent.

Meanwhile, fans and observers, please let us know if you know the contact details for any of the following:

* failed magician
* failed comic
* failed watercolor artist
* failed circus performer (including clown)
* failed clarinetist
* failed MC

We need at least one of each of these groups to join us in Guymon.
