It’s been a few weeks, but what a set of pics to come roaring back with. The seminal alt-country band The Jayhawks have got the original line-up back together and are touring behind a really solid new album, Mockingbird Time. Sadly, I couldn’t personally make it to their November 16th show at the Granada Theater in Dallas, but thankfully, our intrepid rock photog, David Heidle could and did. Enjoy the shots… 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Man, oh, man! What a show. Unfortunately, I’ve only had to hear about what a great night of music last week’s Drive By Truckers / Centro-matic show was, as I was out of town. Thankfully, our man-on-the-scene David Heidle was not only in-town, but all over the Granada Theater in Dallas.

Opening the show was Texas favorites Centro-matic, who have been friends with DBT for years. That friendship showed, as Centro leader (and wonderfully wooley-bearded) Will Johnson played guitar for the Truckers during their set, due to lead Trucker Patterson hood’s playing hand being stitched up after a nasty cut.

You don’t have to just assume that this was a show worth catching, Noah from the Dallas Observer thought it was pretty special, too. Heidle was able to make his way through the sold-out crowd to snap up some mighty fine pics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our intrepid photog-in-the-city, David Hedile, recently attended the James McMurtry “Barefoot at the Belmont” concert in Dallas at the Belmont Hotel in Oak Cliff. The show was opened by Dallasite Greg Schroeder and I think you’ll see that there are few better backdrops to be had at a concert.

 

Well, David Heidle is quite the man about town, so we were thrilled when he sent us pics from a recent tour of the Franconia Brewery tour. Again, David will have some musical shots for us soon enough, but these were too good not to share. Franconia Brewing Company, based in McKinney, has become a popular label here in North Texas, and will soon be bottling their offerings to help spread the word out, far and wide.
