Scenes From Cool Out's Return to The Crown and Harp.
A few years removed from its home at this venue venue and its true heyday, Tony Schwa's weekly Monday night Cool Out offerings finally returned to Lower Greenville's The Crown and Harp this week, aiming to recapture a little bit of the magic that once made this affair such a memorable and must-attend recurring event in this city.
And boy did it: With a sound system that delivers a thump far greater than this old Cavern spot's upstairs ever did, the renovated upstairs at The Crown and Harp helped Schwa, Dallas' self-proclaimed leader in “strange games and funky thangs,” and his efforts in delivering various disco diva wails and Barry White bass lines to truly resonate with his quite-eager audience.
Schwa, clearly, knows what he's doing at this point. His masterful blend of mellow '60s gold, disco diamonds, boogie favorites and nu-disco soon-to-be-classics provides him and his regular DJing efforts throughout town a definite — and easily enjoyed — aesthetic.
Now back him in the climes that helped earn him his reputation, Schwa truly feels like he's in his element. And, for the foreseeable future, he'll be plying this craft of his each Monday night starting at from 10 p.m. to close, spinning a late night soundtrack that is bound to start your week with a serious kick.
