Watch: You Plus Dallas Looks Back on Dallas Music in 2010
There's no doubt about it, for the Dallas music community, 2010 was strong to quite strong. Newer acts like Ishi, Air Review, Spooky Folk and many others made waves, while long-time acts like Sarah Jaffe and Doug Burr broke out with quite a bit of national attention.
You Plus Dallas, the Dallas-based media company that started in 2010, was there for a lot of it and put together a montage of clips and interviews featuring some of Dallas' most prominent acts. Full disclosure: I worked with You Plus Dallas on a number of music related videos last year, and this one, in particular, features commentary from Unfair Park's Robert Wilonsky and me.
As I stated in the video, "people need to get out more." If you didn't get your full dose of Dallas music last year, this retrospective certainly doesn't cover everything -- just the tip of the iceberg, really -- but it shows that 2010 was a great year for music in Dallas, and 2011 promises to be even better. Check out the video after the jump.
