With our DOMA ballot online and ripe for your votin', we figured we'd give you some help: a daily breakdown of each category's nominees.
Best Song - "Slow Southern Home" by Doug Burr - "Julianne" by The Crash That Took Me - "Parking Lot Nights" by Ghosthustler - "Maths" by Record Hop - "The Sparrow Spooked The Crow" by Dove Hunter
Now, this is a competition. But, perhaps more than anything else, it's a litmus test of our readers' and DOMA voters' tastes because, really, every one of these songs is stellar in its own right. So, the question is, area music fans: Are you more into roots rock, hard rock, electronic dance music, grandiose pop rock or folk rock?
Note: Because of some technical difficulties (read: the fact that not everyone in the world uses Firefox, event though they should), this post will be spread out over a six-post span. Really sorry 'bout that. --Pete Freedman
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.
