Hundreds of hormonal teens and adoring parents rocked out to eleven local high school bands at the first annual Texas High School Rock Off at the House of Blues on Friday night.
With industry professionals (like our own Pete Freedman) serving as judges, Jonathan Cook of Forever the Sickest Kids and 97.1 The Eagle's "Loud and Local" host Angela Chase emceed the event.

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.
