We're a week and a half from the 25th Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase. On Saturday, November 2, more than 50 bands and artists nominated for this year's awards will play on eight stages in Deep Ellum. It starts at 6 p.m. and ends around 2 a.m., and now you can start planning your night.
We've gone out of our way to make each stage an eclectic mix. So wander around, start with a band you know you like and find a few new ones.

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.
