After shaking up the Kerrville Folk Festival, Fort Worth’s outlaw country diva Glitter Rose played Poor David’s Pub last week and is now packing her bags for Nashville.

Rose has been invited to perform at the NAMM Summer Conference, June 20-22. (That’s the National Association of Music Merchants for the acronym challenged.)

Rose is happy to represent her guitar line, The Glitter Rose Series by Jon Kammerer as well as her most recent endorsee, Moody Leather. She's been crisscrossing Texas ever since her most recent effort, Southern Comfort, came out late last year. Cultivating her bad girl persona while perfecting her punch in the face brand of country rock, Rose is, if anything else, an ear and an eyeful. Perhaps not the best representative the area has to offer, Rose is at least capable of shaking up a city as notoriously mind-numbing as Nashville. --Darryl Smyers

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.
