Rocking out in Dallas at The, 103.7 KVIL’s Poptopia

Review by Linda Slobodnik

On Wednesday evening, I had the pleasure to attend Dallas, 103.7 KVIL’s Poptopia at the South Side Ballroom inside Gilley’s. The lineup was an eclectic offering of current artists each with a different music style. First on the bill was ZZ Ward adorned in black including a fitting black cowgirl hat. The crowd was thin at this early show, but she wasted no time heating up the room. The fans exploded when she sang “Last Love Song” with such feeling you thought the person it was written about was there in the room.

I must mention the wonderful additional entertainment during the set changes provided by young girls patiently awaiting the showing of Phillip Phillips. These princesses, some in tutus; ran, danced and spun on the hardwood floor with such enjoyment that it tugged at my inner child.

The second in the lineup was A Great Big World who had a pleasing set reminiscence of my youth. They opened with “Rockstar” which they had recently sang on Sesame Street with Big Bird, Elmo and an array of the neighborhood. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/great-big-world-rocks-sesame-street-gma-25455197. They then delighted the audience with “Everyone is Gay”. A cheerful song that explains love, understanding and acceptance to children which I believe can be a great lesson for every age. With such grace they transitioned into “Say Something”. I was overwhelmed with this group’s performance.

Third to play was Magic with a delightful reggae fusion. By now there was a heavier crowd and it was jumping. I was a bit disappointed in the sound quality which contained a lot of cracks and too much bass. However, they tore the roof off with their debut song, “Rude”.

Unfortunately, I was not able to stay for the much anticipated Phillip Phillips so I cannot offer him a review. All in all Poptopia was a wonderful event and in my eyes a great success for 103.7 KVIL Dallas.-
