Pete made a good point on Friday when he complained about Denton hosting a badass showcase the one weekend Dallas has awesome showcases. Your DC-9 friends were all over the place this weekend. Luckily, our photographer Melanie Gomez was more than happy to hit up Concernathon at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studio Friday night. She was particularly impressed by Record Hop's performance. Get a feel for the showcase by viewing her slideshow. -- 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.
