Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Tomorrow night, the normally alt-country vibes of City Tavern will turn decidedly electronic as the venue hosts a quadruple-bill of three bands that DC9 readers are already long familiar with and a fourth that they've likely never heard, but should--and soon.

Joining Hoyotoho, Darktown Strutters and Museum Creatures on this Thursday night bill is the new-to-the-scene Denton duo Novaak, which, indeed, will be making its Dallas debut at this show. And the band fits quite nicely on this bill, too, combining Museum Creature's earworms, Hoyotoho's flashy riffage (courtesy guitarist Blake Panter) and Darktown Strutter's female-fronted sultriness (courtesy singer Jessi James) into one convenient package.

Contributing to our week-long efforts to pass along free song downloads to our readers from promising new local talents, Novaak's been kind enough to pass along a free download of its brand spankin' new song, "Marnie." Give it a much merited listen and "Save Link As..." after the jump.

Novaak -- "Marnie"

James has a bit of a Blondie vibe going on, huh?

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.
