- Founders of Sick Puppies: Shimon Moore and Emma Anzai
- When they did the founding: 1997, while still in high school
- Where they did the founding: Sydney, Australia
- Their musical influences: fellow Aussies Silverchair and the Living End
- Where you've heard them: on the viral "Free Hugs" video, which paired the band's song "All the Same" with footage Moore shot of friend and performance artist Juan Mann
- Total views as of September 2013: nearly 75 million
- Total hugs given: enough that if they were all combined into one, it would be really uncomfortable
- What they've been up to recently: playing tunes from their new album, Connect
- What inspired Connect, according to Moore on the Sick Puppies website: “There are only a few things every single person in the world has in common. One is that we all need each other. To have a song that captures that is pretty special.”
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
