Got some Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase details to pass along to you this morning.
For starters, the updated schedule of performers can be found here, and you can read up on all 52 acts playing this deal on Saturday right here. Might as well check out an oral history of the past 25 years of Dallas music and Deep Ellum (featuring quotes from the Toadies, Old 97's, Centro-matic, Sarah Jaffe and Erykah Badu) here while you're at it.
On top of all that, we've added another treat: As part of our showcase, we'll be hosting a silent disco in the upstairs portion of Trees. DJ Sober and Yeahdef will be running this deal, wherein you'll be given a set of headphones to rock out to their stylings. Should be a good time.
So, yes, be sure to get your tickets now while they're still $15 a pop so you can guarantee your way in on the cheap.
Or, well, if you're just a lucky person, you can win your way in. That's right: We've got four pairs of VIP tickets to the showcase to hand out to a few lucky readers today. VIP access includes a special, shaded and seated viewing area for the outdoor stage (with VIP bathrooms, even), plus two complimentary drinks and some complimentary food. A $40 value, which you can go ahead and purchase here. Or you can hit the jump and find out how to win you a pair free of charge.

2. Leave a comment below telling us the band you're most looking forward to seeing at Saturday's Showcase. (Be sure to either sign in using one of your social media accounts through our Disqus commenting system or use a working email address when you comment, as this is how we will contact our winners. Your contact information will not be used for any other purpose.)
Only those who complete both steps are eligible to win the pair of tickets. We will leave the contest open until 5 p.m. this afternoon (Thursday, October 13, 2011), when we'll pick our winners at random. Lastly, eligible winners must be able to come pick up their VIP wristbands at the Observer offices (2501 Oak Lawn Ave., Suite 700) by 5:30 p.m. on Friday; if you can't do that, don't bother entering, as these are physical wristbands that we're handing out, and not simply a spot on a guest list.
