Congratulations to Dallas-based indie rockers Airline as they took the venue vote last Saturday. The Road to RedGorilla showcase happened in Deep Ellum’s 20-year music venue staple, Club Dada. With the help of John Solis and Method Entertainment, the night was a rockin’ success. Sunward, Hendrick, and Airline all represented RedGorilla as they have already been chosen for the 2009 festival. With uniquely different sounds, the votes were extremely close all the way up to the closing of the voting booth.
Airline’s music has been described as “indie rock that avoids pretension or complication with tunes clean, catchy and compelling.” The Dallas Observer describes Airline’s debut release Farewell Republica as “detailed, dramatic and not a little dense, this is local music of rare insight, by a band demanding a following.” After witnessing Airline’s live performance on Saturday night, it is apparent the guys have the ability to bring their recorded material to the stage.
