Your 2011 Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase Performers

A closer look at all 52 acts playing this weekend's Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase in Deep Ellum

Once upon a time, White Arms of Athena found themselves playing the pop-punk circuit — not because the band's sound aligned with that genre (it doesn't) but simply because that's where they knew they could find fans. The progressive metal band's ploy worked; these days the band has transitioned into the area metal market and is quick becoming one of the scene's bigger draws.

Missile

12 a.m.

The punk rockers in Missile know the power of a strong visual. Leather jackets? Check. Fancy, practiced rock star posturing? Of course. An impressive lighting backdrop employed at every show? You bet. Good thing the band's got the audio side of things down, too.

The Gorehounds

1 a.m.

The Gorehounds are everything you would expect out of a Cramps tribute band. Maybe more than you'd expect, actually: Clad in genre-bending attire and complete with bikini-clad backup dancers, this collection of Dallas-area punk rock veterans puts their experience, know-how and penchant for spectacle to good use in this project.
