Scenes From Sealion and Datahowler's Dual Album Release at Three Links.

You might think, what with all the anticipation that existed heading into the Black Flag show going on just across the street at the same time, that Sealion and Datahowler's dual album release show might've been lost in the Elm Street shuffle on Friday night in Deep Ellum.

You'd be wrong: A packed house turned up to Three Links this weekend to help these two local entities celebrate their new albums. In Sealion's case, that meant the release of a punkier-than-before sound in the form of their sophomore LP Kenneth; in Datahowler's it meant the physical arrival of the soundscape-y Crystal Gazers.

And, assuming you skipped this show as a result of your misled assumptions, you'd miss some treats, too — among them a fiery opening set from opening outfit War Party, an added drummer to Datahowler's live show and a set from Sealion that saw the band performing most every song it's ever performed before in any setting.

The whole night was a treat. And, in the end, Sealion at least would be rewarded in kind as a couple of the performers from that show happening across the way — Black Flag's Greg Ginn and Good For You frontman/legendary skateboarder Mike Vallely — would make their way over to this show to voice their approval for what they'd heard bleeding over from the opposite side of the street.

Talk about something worth celebrating.
