So, Erykah Badu DJed The Double Wide For Our Dallas Observer Music Awards After-Party?
Badu, DJing on a whim.

But, well, you kind of missed out if you didn't come. That's because a special guest showed up unannounced, even to us: Erykah Badu.
After slaying earlier in the night at the House of Blues, offering up an
especially incendiary performance with her Cannabinoids collective,
Badu showed up to the Double Wide at around one in the morning to party
with this year's winners, nominees and die-hard DOMA supporters.
It was quite the scene. She rolled up, slid into the bar somewhat quietly, popped down at the corner table with some of her 'Noids and was just hanging out -- until DJ Hammertimez, who was running the system last night, played a Doobie Brothers song, at which point, Badu jumped out of her seat and started dancing.
A few minutes later, she'd joined Hammertimez behind the booth, pulling tracks from her own laptop, which she'd brought along in her car, just in case.
One hell of a surprise, really. Probably the best possible way to end this year's great DOMA season, too.
Just awesome. And totally worth this headache I'm still fighting as a result of it.
