Perhaps you recall this Unfair Park item from early last month about the efforts to resurrect the Kessler Theatre in Oak Cliff? Well, either way, point is: It's still happening. And former DC9 contributor Jeff Liles is a big part of that resurrection, helping to spearhead the process.
But, beyond that, Liles is constantly trying to up the awareness level of what's happening at the theatre. Hence the above clip, shot by Liles and featuring The Buck Pets' Chris Savage performing the song "Hey Sunshine" in the theatre as it's being renovated. It's part of a series Liles has already shot and, last I heard, plans to continue shooting to keep the Kessler and its renovation at the forefront of the local music scene's minds.
And for good reason: Oak Cliff could use a venue of that size... and maybe a few more Buck Pets performances, too, while we're at it? Either way, worth a watch.
