Last week, two artists stopped by our weekly DC9 in SPACE taping in celebration of our 20th episode of the weekly installment. First up? The always cheerful Johnny Lloyd Rollins, who excitedly spoke about his upcoming record with the small crowd of friends and fans assembled to listen. And though Rollins wouldn't play any of the new cuts from the disc--not on camera, at least--he did play a few of his old songs that are being re-worked to fit into the theme of his upcoming escape-from-modern-society release. And that shouldn't be too tough for the dynamic Rollins to pull off; his songs have always had a backward-looking, nostalgic aesthetic. Actually, that's one of the many things we talked about in this week's episode, which you can see above. Check it out.

As for the other artist who stopped by SPACE last week? Well, we've got some great footage of Dem Southernfolkz pontificating on life and hip-hop for our camera, too. But we're gonna hold off on posting that episode for just one more week, if you don't mind.

Why? Well, 'cause we've filmed 21 of these suckers now, and tonight, we're taking a break from the filming. We'll be back on schedule next week, though. So check next Wednesday's DC9 in SPACE post for details on that night's taping. As always, it will be free to attend.

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.
