The preacher and the Prophet

Why can't we all just get along? The history, or not, of Russell and Jeff's Deep Ellum

September 4-5: Club Clearview hosts its first annual Labor Day Weekend Party in its parking lot, featuring Course of Empire, Pack of Fags, Last Rites, Hash Palace, and New Bohemians.

September: An anonymous machine-gun attacker leaves holes in the Loco Gringos' Gringo Hearse. The Gringos hit the floor and escape unscathed.

October 16: The Prophet burns to a crisp. The Dallas Fire Department traces the cause to faulty wiring on an electric deep fryer in the kitchen. Estimated damages are $25,000. Hobbs can't be reached for comment, but it's believed neither God nor Satan is to blame.

Nice shorts, fellas: Russell Hobbs and Jeff Swaney discuss who God likes better, Three on a Hill or the New Bohemians.
