DOMAXXI: The Winners! Announced!
So last night's 21st annual Dallas Observer Music Awards kinda kicked some serious ass.
All ten of our performers stunned with their live sets, and the crowd really couldn't have been more outstanding--at one point, during Telegraph Canyon's set, it was tough to move about the room, it was so crowded.
So, on that note, many, many thanks to everyone who came out to the show--the fans, the nominees, the performers, the presenters--for making it such a great time.
If you didn't make it, you really did miss out on a hell of a time. We'll have photos--and maybe some audio and video--coming your way shortly. But in the meatime, after the jump, check out your winners list...
