The Dallas Museum of Art recently ran a contest for up-and-coming local musicians to submit a video, performing one song, for a shot at an opening performance on the main stage at the April 16 Late Nights event. The first round of winners were chosen, from numerous submissions, by the DMA. Those six finalists then had to face the test of Facebook and Twitter voting. According to DMA’s Head of Adult Programming and Multimedia Services, Stacey Lizotte, more than 50,000 votes were cast.
The bands will perform on the main stage beginning at 8 p.m. on April 16. Be sure and get there early for a performance by Roger Boykin from 6-7. Also, make plans to stick around for the alt.country/Americana music of Collin Herring beginning at 10.
