I'm hanging out in Dallas until the 29th of September - I've been here for less than 24 hours and I'm already bored. Spier's Music has closed. Larry Morgan's Music has closed. Brook Mays is gone. Trees has closed. Deep Ellum is a joke - it's insanely crowded, crime ridden, and mostly caters to DJs and doesn't have much live music (that I'm aware of). I don't know where to find live jazz anymore. Marshell Ivory is dead. Earl Harvin is gone. Traffic is insane. I'm surrounded by strip malls and giant chain stores (I found myself completely lost in Fry's Electronics today, looking for a single ethernet cable to no avail.). My little Honda is dwarfed by the giant trucks on the roads here. My mohawk is the subject of a bit of gawking. It's hot. Help me out, Dallas-ites. Surely there has to be a reason so many people live here. What am I to do over the next three weeks? Are there any decent music stores left in this city? Any bands or venues to check out? Any cool museums, events, or anything of culture that I should see? I'm already starting to spend way too much time on TB again. I need something to do, and fast.
