Son Volt served up a handful of early hits, and lots of the new stuff from The Search, Okemah and the Melody of Riot and this summer's release American Central Dust, last night at the Granada Theater.
Don't expect Jay Farrar to fire up the charm onstage like, oh, say Jeff Tweedy, did at Wilco's show at The Palladium last month (to draw a novel comparison), but you can check out photos from last night's show in this concert slide show.
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.
