On last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Bril, a band on Dallas' Kirtland Records, got a semi-coveted spot on the show's nightly band showcase (hey, at least it's not Last Call with Carson Daly). The band's from California, not Dallas, so I don't feel compelled to review them again, but I figured I'd point out the Dallas presence on TV last night. After the final commercial break, as Kimmel bid his late night audience farewell, label founder John Kirtland and general manager Tami Thomsen got some screen time standing next to the host; as the camera panned away, John blew somebody a kiss. Don't worry, John--I caught it, and I'm never letting go. -Sam Machkovech
