Tuesday night was a pleasant night to be in Downtown Dallas. The Dallas Observer was hosting a photo shoot for all DOMA nominees in the upstairs bar at City Tavern. And for a Tuesday, the place was packed. There were the likes of Rodney Parker and 50 Peso Reward playing Big Buck Hunter with Whiskey Folk Ramblers, RTB2 laughing over a beer with The Naptime Shake, Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights running out in front of the Main Street traffic and some wicked awesome metal band posing for photos fully decked out with the hair, the spikes, the Flying V guitar and all the leather. What more could you ask for?! With music performances by Matthew Grey, Smile Smile and many others, free beer and tons of familiar faces, it was just a touch of the greatness to come this Saturday in Deep Ellum with the DOMA music showcase and the free awards party at Granada next Tuesday night. Way to go, Dallas!
