Speaking of North Texas bands popping up on television


Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights

have also been involved in that game lately, stopping in to record a couple acoustic songs and an interview for

Beta TV

, which is a nationally syndicated TV show that airs in 146 cities, although I'm


sure Dallas isn't one of them.

No matter: As you can see from the interview posted above, which comes over the band performing a take of its song "Devil's Basement," band members Jonathan Tyler, Mo Brown and Brandon "Kansas" Pinckard still grasped the opportunity to talk about the spirit of rock 'n' roll and their refusal, they say, to kowtow to the trends of the modern music world -- which, to their credit, is an argument they've made all along.

Anyway, give the above clip a watch. Then, after the jump, watch a second uncut offering of the band performing its most recent radio single, "Gypsy Woman."

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.
