Dallas' Hottest Musical Export: Mall Punknew

For lack of a better descriptor, these acts are the latest proprietors of the mall punk scene, performing power pop, for the most part, and music that's been influenced heavily by the pop-punk sounds of the late '90s and the emo sounds of the early '00s.
