We've been thinking about it, and sometimes a Q&A doesn't cut it when we're talking about our favorite local bands. So, we're trying something new: the video segment on our favs. This time out, DC-9 photographer/videographer Jonathan Finley met up with The Crash That Took Me at a recent show. Watch the band members perform, hear them talk about their band and contemplate how badly you wish you were there. Luckily, the band is playing tonight at the 8.0 in Fort Worth. -- Chelsea Ide
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.
