...and, for those still stuck on Youtube, here's your link.

Denton singer-songwriter Daniel Folmer stopped by our new Oak Cliff filming location at El Sibil last Wednesday night, further breaking in the new spot and video series. And, once there, he treated us to a few songs from his latest release, The Dead End, as well as a couple older ones, and even some new ones--including one he wrote just the day before this clip was shot.

Not too shabby, Mr. Folmer.

But, then again, that kind of productivity is nothing new for the newest touring member of The Paper Chase; Folmer's put out five albums in the past four years, and three in the past two. So, yeah, he's got something of a catalog built up, even at the rip old age of 24 years old. In the above clip, Folmer explains how he gets into the midset of adding songs to his often-morbid collection. Check it out.

And, if you've got the urge, we're filming another installment of this new weekly series, DC9 Live at El Sibil, at our new location at 122 E. 5th St. in Oak Cliff tonight. Our guest this week is neo-folkster Jacob Metcalf--although we have it on good authority that he'll be joined by his friends in the Dallas Family Band, too. Filming starts at 7:30 p.m.--and feel free to stop on by. As always these events are 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.
