Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Looks like, once upon a time in 1977, someone hoped to make a concert film out of a Genesis concert that, apparently was filmed here in Dallas. Now someone's taken the liberty of posting the unreleased footage of the film, apparently called Seconds Out, onto YouTube. And we, in turn, are posting it here. Below are all four parts of this 1977 Genesis performance...

Anyone was recognize the venue from this grainy footage? Were any of our readers actually there? -- 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.
