The night kicked off at the Granada Theater with a set by Blue Healer, the new project from the talented dudes behind Austin’s rootsy Sons of Fathers band. Dynamic on-stage, Healer’s David Beck and Paul Cauthen were even featured in Rolling Stone a few years back. Veering away from their former Americana sound, the new sound felt more mellow and experimental. Beck’s vocals did not disappoint.

The crowd rolled in as Parallel Play took the stage, fans anxious to hear unreleased tracks from the band’s forthcoming album Bucket of Lies. The folksy bluegrass quartet brought with them an infectious energy, prompting whispers from the crowd proclaiming that they were surprised the band was from their hometown of Dallas. The feel-good amped up set had the crowd stomping their feet and patting their hips within minutes. Each song put you in a feel good mood as the band spoke to the crowd in a refreshing down-to-earth way. They’re a rising star in the Dallas music scene and if you see their live show, you’ll see why. We look forward to hearing their new album, which is slated to release sometime next year.
