The Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase was held this past Saturday and over 50 bands played on 10 different stages through out Deep Ellum. The Main stage hosted Sarah Jaffe, Centro-Matic, the Old 97's and the Toadies while directly across from the stage the Texas Rangers were playing game 6 on a large portable jumbotron. It was a fantastic evening, and all bases were covered, no pun intended.
Eric and I arrived while Centro-Matic were wrapping up their set, and next up were the Old 97's.
This was the 97's first Texas show since the release of The Grand Theatre Vol. 2, and in typical 97's fashion, they ripped through a clean set that didn't disappoint.
