Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

As Warbeast, Akkolyte and others had their way with Reno's Chop Shop Saloon on Saturday night, those of us sardine-packed and sweating inside La Grange caught Glen Farris, The Naptime Shake, The O's, Boys Named Sue, The Fox & The Bird and Seryn.

For sheer boil-your-mercury heat, though, nothing compared to that outdoor stage behind Trees, where Lucero, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, The Secret Machines and The Cool Kids played.

Catch shots of them, along with Ishi and Mount Righteous, in our third slideshow installment from the DOMA showcase, this one featuring shots from Andrew Shepherd and myself. Also? Jump for video of Lucero's "Sweet Little Thing"--just after Ben Nichols caved and threw on some sunglasses to help keep the sunburn off his eyes.

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.
