We'll admit, this weekend was a lot of working for us. We've got big things coming on this blog in the next week or two – and guess when we were meeting with everyone? Yep, this weekend. Below are the two shows we loved from this weekend. Next week, we'll be back to the juicy, full Over The Weekend.
Haste the Day at The Door
Indiana's Haste the Day took over the The Door Friday night. The band highlighted the screamo night led off by Gwen Stacy (new, and surprisingly good) and Scary Kids Scaring Kids. We know we promised photos from this show in Thursday's print edition. We're sorry, but there were some technical difficulties (read: memory card corruption). Won't happen again. If anyone snapped some good pictures of Steven Keech and Co., do share.
Eleven Hundred Springs at the Granada
We're glad to see Eleven Hundred Springs, a true Texas country band, hold it down at the Granada Friday night. The band's nonstop touring has really upped its live show. (We'll give you a glimpse later this month in a video profile on the band.) -- Chelsea Ide
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.
