Denim and Dirty Rock
There was a time when Dallas was more than an optional post-Austin stop for musicians. From the ’50s to the late ’70s, this city was the Southwestern hub of the music industry and every band worth its spit targeted the place. Dallas was where you went to get your name out, and that golden memory is shared Thursday at the Texas Theatre (231 W. Jefferson Blvd.) when local filmmaker, writer and historian Kirby Warnock, who covered the music scene for Buddy Magazine, presents his newest documentary, When Dallas Rocked. You’ll see greats reminiscing about our area’s stint as the musical apex woven through original concert footage and photos, featuring everyone from Billy Joel and Eric Clapton to Elvis Costello and Sid Vicious. Get your ticket to this one-night-only 7:30 p.m. showing at thetexastheatre.com. They cost $9.50. Warnock will be in attendance.
