Names: Chris Juargo (left) and Mikey Bielecki (right) Spotted: 6th.

Chris, handing me a flier: Come to our show tonight. We're in a band called Fight the Quiet.

Only if you let me take your picture.

Mikey: You have to get in the picture with us. We like hugs.

There's no one around to take the picture. So [ignoring him] just, get together. Yeah, that's it. [Click.] What bands have you seen so far?

Chris: We're not really seeing people. We're going around checking out what's going on, but we drove out here from Flagstaff, Arizona to try to get some work done and promote.

Give me a two sentence description of your band. Chris: A catchy blend of power-pop and alternative rock with nice hooks?

Aw, c'mon. That's boring. What do you guys sing about?

Mikey: He's the guitarist, I play drums, we don't know. No [to Chris], what does Nate sing about?

Chris: Nate sings about joy, happiness, the usual -- love.

Did you say love or muff?

Chris: Yes.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
