The Dallas Observer Music Showcase is Saturday, November 2 (tomorrow). It's our annual celebration of North Texas music, some version of which we've been doing for 25 years now. Here's what you should know before you head into Deep Ellum:
What is this? A music festival. The lineup is made up entirely of bands and artists nominated for Dallas Observer Music Awards. You can see that list (and vote for your favorites) here.
Who, exactly, is playing at this? There are 58 bands on the schedule. We've described each of them briefly if you'd like to go through and get some suggestions.
Where is this? On eight stages in Deep Ellum, mostly concentrated on Elm Street. Will call is in the parking lot of Trees, if you're looking for someplace to start.
