There were plenty of shows this weekend, even with it being a holiday and all. But, for whatever reason, I can't find any videos from this weekend's shows on the Internet.

What? No one else got the Flip camera they were hoping for? Oh well, me neither. Alas, here are some other videos that might pique your interest on this sluggish, back-to-work Monday...

Rusko at Lizard Lounge on Friday, December 18, 2009:
I hardly make a habit out of going to Lizard Lounge, but, man, sometimes, that place is just ridiculously awesome. And I say that with no sarcasm whatsoever. Honest. Check this out: I can barely tell what's happening in this just-posted clip of dubstep favorite Rusko running the DJ booth at the venue last Friday, but I still feel like I missed out. This looks insane.

Savage and The Big Beat make a plea for you to join their Jurassic Park: The Musical cause:
Can't say I know too too much about Denton's Savage and The Big Beat, except that it's piano-driven two-man indie rock outfit makes for a pretty fun listen and this video that the band put out for its song "A Love Most Horrid" shows that the band has a sense of humor. More proof on that front: The band is apparently working on Jurassic Park musical--hence this below video, which implores you to join in on the band's cause there.

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.
