Last week, in a blog post about my favorite band from Cowtown, The Cut*Off, I mentioned how the band would be part of this Saturday's Texas Showcase Showdown at the House of Blues. Well, Cut*Off guitarist Jayson Hamilton just sent me an emailing detailing the line-up and schedule for this hopping event.

Jump for the room and time schedules for this $10, 10-band, all-HOB access affair.

In the Main Room...
12:30 a.m.: What Made Milwaukee Famous
11:30 p.m.: Telegraph Canyon
10:30 p.m.: Doug Burr
9:30 p.m.: The Orbans
8:30 p.m.: Little Black Dress

And in The Pontiac Garage:
12 a.m.: Black Joe Lewis
11 p.m.: Dove Hunter
10 p.m.: The Cut*Off
9 p.m.: Matthew and the Arrogant Sea
8 p.m.: Elkhart

As I stated previously, that's a GREAT line-up. And the $10 admission includes the right to go back and forth between rooms.

I, for one, will be there, zigzagging my inebriated ass back and forth, trying to catch as much Texas music as possible. You should. too...

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.

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.
