Sunday Sounds: Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase

1 Night, 40+ Local Bands, Multiple Stages in Deep Ellum

Real talk: this isn’t an ad. I have gone to the Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase for nearly five years now. It is an excellent event to see great local bands of all genres.

Because of this event, I discovered some of the bands featured in previous Sunday Sounds. Here are bands I’m excited to see this year:

  • ISHI
  • Vandoliers
  • Bobby Sessions
  • Blue, the Misfit
  • Venetian Sailors
  • Lord Byron
  • Pearl Earl
  • Charlie Crockett

But I’m going to stop in at different shows, especially the bands I don’t know. It is one thing to look up someone’s music online but wholly different experience to see them live.

A tip from previous years: GET VIP TICKETS! Yes, they do cost more (still cheap though). But the private bar with drink tickets alone is worth it. The bars fill up and lines occur. Also, there is a VIP bathroom, so another line you get to skip.
