It was two Wednesdays back now that longtime DC9 favorites Dem Southernfolkz stopped through as the second act performing at the celebratory 20th taping of our ongoing DC9 in SPACE series. Candid, humble and thoughtful, this trio--Big Ben, Kinfolk Jack and Saturday Aldridge--spoke with us about the creative process, the need for a riveting live hip-hop show and how they came together as an act.

You won't see too much on that last bit in the above video--but you will hear a snippet or two of one of the tracks you'll be able to hear on one of the band's many upcoming projects, which currently include an EP and a re-issue of its full-length debut, both by the end of the year. Anyway, check the clip out--fans of the more soulful side of hip-hop will no doubt aprove.

And, starting tonight, we're back on with our weekly performances and taping. Tonight's starts at 7 p.m., so stop on by SPACE Studio (2814 Main St.) and check it out. We may even have some extra passes to the Best of Dallas party taking place a block over at Trees to hand out (emphasis on "may"). Either way, come on by.

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.
