In a year that saw Ozzy, the Jonases and The New York Times storm through North Texas, which area music stories will go down as the most important of 2008?
Yesterday, of course, was the fourth anniversary of Dimebag Darrell's untimely death--which probably explains the large amount of information we keep finding about him and the biographies being written about him and whatnot of late. And, sorry we didn't post this yesterday when it went up, but, to c ... More >>
The Sword is rapier-like. (Jack Thompson) Back when we previewed Ozzfest for August 6 issue, I wrote the following about Austin's The Sword: J.D. Cronise's lead vocals give the band's brutal, impressive songwriting (which incorporates a hint of classic rock) a medieval, fantastic quality. Oh, and ... More >>
Really? Third-best? That seems a bit high, no? (Roger Caldwell) So the Morning News' main music blog posted this item earlier this week, and I've been trying to wrap my head around it ever since. Basically, it says that the top grossing North American concert of the year so far was September's ACL ... More >>
Vinnie Paul celebrating something completely unrelated to this post during last weekend's Ozzfest ordeal in Frisco. (Roger Caldwell) Don't know how we missed this one--OK, being out of town on vacation probably has a lot to do with it--but, on Friday, Billboard reported that Sharon Osbourne thought ... More >>
Or: how I learned to stop worrying and love Ozzfest
Bring it? No, no, no. Valient Torr says it's already been broughten. ...and not because the Club Dada show tonight is likely to sell out. Actually, it's so you can get the most bang for your buck. John Iskander of Parade of Flesh, who booked tonight's show (and, let's face it, has had some bad lu ... More >>

After years of touring the nation, Ozzfest 2008 finds a home in Dallas' suburbs
Can the city withstand being the focus of speculation by thousands of metalheads?
While everyone in Dallas is going gaga over Ozzfest (and everyone outside of Texas is throwing a shit-fit), somehow people are overlooking that Judas Priest -- yeah, Judas Fucking Priest -- is coming to town around the same time. And it's not just Rob Halford and Co., but also one of my favorites, M ... More >>
For those wanting to get a jump on the Frisco-only Ozzfest, Metallica--which is making its Ozzfest debut at this year's one-off--has made its May 14 show from the Wiltern Theatre in El Lay available as a download. And, yup, it's a pay-fer, course, but for a good cause. The show was a benefit for t ... More >>
What you missed on DC9 this week as you wondered, "Are they or aren't they?" and collectively dumbed down the entire region... -We saw The New York Times waaaaaaaaay overestimate the amount of fans UNT football has. -We got all "OMFG" about Lisa Loeb's appearance on Gossip Girl. -We got confirmatio ...

Metallica makes its Ozzfest debut this year, too. The rumors started a while back, but now it's been confirmed, with all the details worked out: Ozzfest 2008 will be a one-day music festival held in Dallas (not a two-day, two-city fest as was originally believed). It'll take place in Frisco on Aug ... More >>
Metallica! Road trip! Angry metal fans! August in Texas! Speaking of topless danceterias, how 'bout the bands that provide their soundtracks? Because over on DC9 Pete brings confirmation of the long-suspected news that Ozzfest will indeed be a one-day, single-city extravaganza with Frisco as the sin ... More >>
Your Ozzfest 2008 poster. ...is that your fans get really uppity and ungrateful. The backlash has already begun on Ozzfest--or so it would appear in the comments section of the Ozzfest blog where the one-day Dallas show was announced. It ain't pretty, folks. There's a lot of "Fuck Dallas," "Fuck ... More >>
Ozzy at last year's Ozzfest.The gossip mill is grinding away about this year's Ozzfest. First it was about an Ozzfest date in London. Then speculation on the bands (nearly every fan site claims Metallica will play). Now, word is there will be two-day festivals held in London and Dallas. That's it. T ... More >>
