A One-Night Stand With the Past
No doubt we'll call it an early day -- I can tell the Friends of Unfair Park have better things to do, and good for you. But before we say, "Till next year," a few words, very few, about a night spent in Deep Ellum -- my first since, well, I can't really can't recall. At first blush, standing amongst familiar faces likewise venturing out for a small taste of the time warp, it felt like a high-school reunion held in the dressed-up school gym -- never more so than when The Toadies, the first night into a two-night stand at Trees, dusted off "Run In With My Dad," a two-decades old deep cut. Good Lord, it's been how long? Many thanks to Jeff Liles for providing the video above: the title track to 2001's Hell Below/Stars Above, a highlight among many. Dallas, this is our classic rock.
