Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: The Ten Dudes With The Best Facial Hair In The Area Scene

nose-moustache-glasses.jpg
Seems like these days, hirsute hipsters are everywhere.

At 35 Conferette, even, street vendors sold T-shirts sporting the phrase "Keep Denton Beard" beneath a photo that pretty much exactly resembles Good Records manager Chris Penn.

We posted a gallery of beards after that event, but why stop there? The DFW music scene has so much more facial hair love to offer.

So, after much perusal, we've picked a few of our favorites amongst the sea of scraggly scenester facial foliage. Points were given for distinctiveness -- if you rock the Grizzly Adams look, you better make it your own or you risk being just another bearded indie dude.

Click on the jump for a list of the best facial hair in the Dallas music scene:

Count Lyle (Ghoultown): Lyle began sporting his Carmine Appice 'stache and soul patch combo long before mustaches became trendy. And we've got to hand it to the guy: With his combination of the Sharpie-precise 'stache, cowboy hat and, uh, skulls, he's certainly got a look going.

Aaron Gonzalez (Akkolyte, Yells At Eels): There's a reason why we now refer to the curly, waxed handlebar as the "Gonzalestache." Noise rocker-cum-jazz impresario Gonzalez is always easily identifiable, even when covered in the body paint and the wild costumes he so often dons onstage.

Chris Penn (Deejay CeePee): There are a ton of guys running around right now with beards that look just like Good Records co-founder Penn's. But, rest assured, he had his first.

You almost need separate categories for beards and 'staches. Curtis Glenn Heath and Joe Butcher own the 'stache category, and they weren't even included. And no Emil? For shame. Plus I'm pretty sure you could braid all the DFWd scenester beards together and still not come up with something as bushy as Ryan Williams' beard. LIST FAIL.

You're just upset that you weren't included. All of y'all are.

Kudos on the Solis inclusion.  Back at SXSW '07 it was more of a pencil thin thing.  He accidentally nicked it while grooming and then shaved the whole thing off.  It was a goddam tragedy.
