Belle and Sebastian Salutes Dallas

It was a nice way for the band to make a return visit to the city.

I was at the KXT Summer Cut Festival on Saturday night at South Side Ballroom to see Scottish band Belle and Sebastian perform in Dallas for the first time since 2006. Back then they played the Granada, which frontman Stuart Murdoch remembered as a “rockin'” place. (I was there then too, and it was a great show. By comparison, I found the sound quality at South Side a disappointment.)

Midway through their set, in lieu of the usual introduction of band members, they played a video inspired by the opening credits of Dallas. It was a nice way to have them acknowledge that they knew where they were, beyond the typical “We love you, fill-in-the-blank-city!” shoutout.
