Everything you need to know about us.

Since it was founded in 2012, Central Track has developed a teflon reputation as a collection of writers, photographers, designers, humorists and provocateurs that voraciously covers the rich cultural landscape of Dallas and beyond by showcasing the wonderful diversity and fascinating blend of high- and low-brow aesthetics that this city so uniquely boasts.

The name Central Track, even, is a nod to Dallas’ history in this regard, referencing the rail (and subsequently named, and long forgotten, neighborhood) that once separated the Downtown Dallas and Deep Ellum entertainment districts just as the city’s cultural identity was taking shape in the late 1800s.

Point is: We know what we’re talking about. And we also unabashedly think that Dallas is pretty awesome.

As such, our editorial staff is committed to blending three separate ideals into one complete package — the posting frequency of news sites, the visual aesthetic of print magazines and the hard-hitting, subversive tone of the alternative weekly press — in the hopes of bringing you the best that Dallas has to offer.

We want to present our content to you in a visually stimulating package and from a fun, thought-provoking and informed perspective.

That’s our mission statement in a nutshell.
