In the retirement community of a town that I grew up in, my teenage friends and I would drive around the back roads for hours, day after day, much to my dad’s dismay. He’d say, “Courtney, gas is a dollar and a quarter a gallon!” Ha, those were the days. Dave Matthews Band and “Crash” were there through it all, though; we pretty much had that one on repeat. It’s no “Crash,” but here’s Dave and the band performing “Bringin’ Down the House” from Saturday’s show at Superpages.com Center...

On Saturday, Dallas’ own, Seven Story Drop had a CD release party at Firewater. While I attempted percussion for about a week in high school, I’m no expert; but this is still a kick-ass drum solo from Jimmy Dereta...

Early Pearl of Dallas was also at Firewater on Saturday. Here is a performance from them--and props to the video maker on this one...

And though we can’t guarantee that this happened this past weekend, but some Youtuber found this guy on Lower Greenville. The title of the clip says everything: “Fat guy singing 'Walk the Line'”...

We almost didn’t open this one. With a title like “Lady Gaga @ Club Purgatory,” we were a little afraid of what we were about to see. Surprise! Turns out Lady Gaga is an up-and-coming pop star. According to her website, she was even nominated for two VMA awards…doesn’t look like she’ll be getting a Moonman this year, but here are two of her songs from Saturday’s show at Club Purgatory...

…and that was your weekend. --Courtney Clenney

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.
