Video: Gorilla vs. Bear II @ Granada Theater, Dallas, TX

You know, Dallas does have its upsides.  A blossoming music scene, increasing national exposure, and a lot of great booking done by all of the fantastic venues citywide.  Lest we not forget one tiny music blog, Gorilla vs. Bear, who has brought several high-profile acts to the DFW are, who might not have stopped here without their suggestion.  Chris at GvB has had an affinity for spotting emerging talent, noteworthy tracks, the 'next big things' before most of us have and he's brought a bunch of those artists to Dallas in his annual festival at Granada Theater.  With the likes of Grimes, Shabazz Palaces, White Denim and Preteen Zenith at last year's affair, he showcased the talents of Glass Candy, Chromatics, Twin Sister, Taken by Trees, Laurel Halo, and Dallas's own A.Dd+ and DJ Sober this year.  Dancing was the name of the game this year.  Chromatics and Glass Candy came on top of this contest, with Twin Sister not far behind.  A.Dd+ got the festival off to a terrific start while Taken by Trees and Laurel Halo far more subtle than the rest.  I do have to give big props to Sober, whose music selection was fantastic all night long.  He really kept the mood going upbeat and the crowd amped the whole night.  Here's the next year.  Videos of the show are below:
