If Only Your Parents' Lectures Came with Beer

Deep Ellum’s newest bar-slash-record-store, Off The Record, stays busy. Apart from the luxury of drinking cocktails where you can also buy records, Off The Record offers an ever-growing list of social and cultural events too. It seems every week sees OTR add another installment to its High Fidelity series, which it describes as “a collection of locally focused events that support growth and creativity in the Dallas music scene.” This week’s addition is a new monthly lecture series. The inaugural guest speaker is the Kessler Theater’s artistic director and Dallas’ defacto local music historian, Jeff Liles. He’s set to discuss the history of Deep Ellum and its position as an integral influence on DFW’s musical culture. The new lecture series launches at Off The Record (2716 Elm St.) at 8 p.m. Monday. Admission is free. More info at facebook.com/OTRDallas.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
