Journey and Styx Played at a House in Dallas This Week
This week's most unconventional show was not at a house in Denton or a taqueria somewhere. It was in Preston Hollow, where Dallas lawyer Lisa Blue-Baron booked Journey and Styx for her Christmas Party.
Her neighbors are either very tolerant or very far away (probably that one), because the Blue-Baron residence is the Gexa Energy Pavilion of North Dallas mansions. In 2010, she had Sheryl Crow and Dukes of September, which features Boz Scaggs, Michael McDonald and Donald Fagen, who is probably a miserable troll of a party guest.
