Scenes From Sir Sly's Friday Night Show at Three Links.
Since there's still to be work done on the incoming, adjacent Fuzzy's Taco Shop, we're still about a month away from the formal grand opening of Three Links, Deep Ellum's newest venue. But that doesn't mean things aren't popping off at the new space, which just last week played host to its first-ever sold-out show and this past weekend again saw strong turnouts all weekend long.
Quite the opposite, at least on Friday night in particular, as Detroit indie rocker JMSN and Los Angeles' dance-inducing Sir Sly took to the stage in the former La Grange space, with some help from local opener Melting Season, to perform before a packed, enthusiastic house.
And I do mean enthusiastic: After JMSN's kind of all over the place, but surprisingly shrill, vocal performance, the line to meet Christian Berishaj and his bandmates at the merchandise table out back extended nearly three dozen people deep. Sir Sly too had the crowds in a tizzy, particularly the female set on hand, which gathered in groups, dancing away to the band's surprising long set (given their currently available catalog, that is) before later giggling and gawking at the band from affair on the aforementioned patio once the headlining band's own set concluded.
Schoolyard antics aside, it was a strong showing from the promising Sir Sly upstarts, who seem primed for substantial larger rooms on future tours through the region. And a strong showing once again for Three Links, which, just a few weeks into its run, already seems fully ingratiated into the happenings along Elm Street.
