When Dallas bandChalkLign
e-mailed us about the Operation Rock the Troops fashion show, we couldn't resist. What can we say? We love benefit shows and fashion. Our photographer Travis Awalt hit up the Saturday night, Oct. 13, event at Firewater. He made sure to fully document the lovely models strutting in skimpy clothes (including underwear), and managed to offer a couple band shots, too. See what you missed in ourslideshow
The show was also ChalkLign's CD release party for Cain's Theory. We didn't forget about the band. The disc is currently spinning in DC-9 CD players. So, watch the blog for a review. -- Chelsea Ide

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.
