As a Dallas native, I have attended several Polyphonic Spree concerts, and let me tell you, they are definitely a musical and spiritual awakening. Once again, they are planning what they are dubbing their New Year's Eve Spectacular on December 31. It will surely be a show not to miss.
Back in the 1950s, Gene Autry opened a movie theater in Dallas that would later become a church and then a sweatshop. Today, the Kessler Theater, now owned by Edwin Cabaniss, has been renovated and reopened as a music and art venue that has been attracting indie bands and local artists ever since.
