I reconnected with The Relatives, who are playing in West Dallas this Saturday, only the second time the gospel group has performed in Dallas since reforming in 2009.
Henry Rollins wrote a column about Texas, in which he shouts out to Roky Erickson, Houston police and Dallas' own True Widow.
Grimes talked to me about technology, but my recorder died halfway through. Ack!
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.
