They may be young, but the music that Caleb Jones (19, drums and vocals), Robert Hudson (19, guitar) and A.J. Durham (17, bass). make together as Robert Jones hardly sounds immature. If anything, it sounds wise well beyond its years, blending elements of psychedelic, stoner and indie rock into an at-times jammy, but never boring, drone made all the more interesting thanks to Caleb's compelling, high-pitched, often slurred vocals.

And, last week, when the band stopped through to perform at our weekly DC9 in SPACE taping (fresh off its first ever tour of the west coast--you'll see some of that footage in the above clip, too), the band certainly didn't come off as wide-eyed. In fact, if anyone did, it was the crowd that gathered to see whatever band we were throwing its way that week.

The result? A DC9 in SPACE taping as its supposed to be done, in its purest, non-gimmicky form, with a band performing and an impressed audience eagerly tossing questions the band's way during the discussing. Why was the crowd so compelled to particpate actively in last week's conversation? Surely the above clip will answer should query. So, please, check it out.

And, on that note, feel free stop by SPACE Studio (2814 Main St.) tonight at 9 o'clock for yet another taping in the series, featuring another one of the region's finest players.

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.
