Leading up to our November 10 showcase, we'll be getting you familiar with some of our Dallas Observer Music Awards nominees, either via past features we've done on them, or new ones. You can vote for your favorite acts, venues and more right here.
We decided to add a Best Video category to the Dallas Observer Music Awards this year, as well as Best Poster Artist/Screenprinter, because we think the visual component is just as important as the musical output. Some of us miss the days when videos didn't go "Gangnam," but rather you had to stay up way past your bedtime to try to catch the one you wanted to see.
Take a walk through our gallery and then cast your vote for your favorite.

Brain Gang Blue, "Party On" Director: Jeff Adair

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.
