So there's this MTV mini-show called Valemont, which I think is about vampires on college campuses or something? How unlike MTV to cash in on a trend like that...

Back on topic: According to a press release that just popped up in our inboxes, DFW's own The Bright, no strangers to being placed on MTV shows, had its song "Cut Me Loose" placed on this mini-show's 10th (and most recent) episode. It's the fifth time the band's been given the greenlight for MTV placement, which may be some sort of record even? At least for area bands, I'd think. Tough to say at which point it appears in the above embed of "show," which lasts all of two minutes and 21 seconds, but, according to the band's publicist, it's in there.

Whatever: We're burying the lead here. The real story? If you watch the clip, you'll also learn that the name of the place where the maybe-vampires live is a a dorm (?) called Panthera House, which kinda sounds like Pantera House, which may or may not be a reference to Pantera. Which would pwn if it were, yeah?

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.
