Dallas Main Street Live

A while back I went off about how I couldn't understand why Dallas doesn't have any kind of music festival.  Well, it seems that my prayer has been answered...kind of.  

The good people at the Granada Theater and Main Street Live are presenting Main Street Live 2008 in Downtown Dallas.  It is something hopeful to look forward to happening with the arts and music in Dallas now that Deep Ellum is being gentrified.  It would be nice to see this thing get bigger and get more national acts involved as well.  I'm all about showcasing local and regional talent, however it would be nice to see it turn into something bigger.  The most notable acts are the greatness of Reverend Horton Heat, Black Tie Dynasty, Record Hop, Riverboat Gamblers and recent "Yeah, They Local" artists The New Frontiers.  It is nice to see the guys at the Granada continuing to bring great music to Dallas and do something special.

The shin-dig will take place on the corner of Main & Akark beginning October 4 and will go every other Saturday concluding November 1.  I'll do the math for you:  there are only three shows...this year?
