About halfway through Delorean's fine performance on Saturday night at Dada, the cue for the lone working bathroom was about ten people deep. Seems some rowdy, drunken female had actually cracked the tank of the toilet in the lady's bathroom on the previous evening. The resulting snafu was less both ... More >>
Hello again, all! So, what you may not know is that each week I try to decide which picture of which band should go at the top of this weekly blog post. This week I settled on Guns N' Roses, since their fans span several generations; even though the tickets to their show this week are so totally out ... More >>
We're taking over Deep Ellum on Saturday. Come along, will you?
It occurred to me recently that, within the DFW music scene, people really love to draw county lines.

It's an homage, he says, to this summer's record-breaking temperatures, drought and fo ... More >>

Gloria LevarioDatahowlerThis past weekend, Datahowler, the chilled-out identity of Frisco's Ross Edman, made his live debut at Club Dada's New Year's Eve Do-Over Party -- and our Daniel Rodrigue came away quite impressed with what he saw from this young performer. Can't say that this much is too ... More >>
Regular DC9 readers should know the name Datahowler. Or, if not Datahowler, then Objektiv One. As you might recall, they're the same person -- one Ross Edman. Edman used to go by the name of Objektiv One, back when he was making waves around the Internet as a mashup artist. Back in June, though, ... More >>

Or so he makes it seem on his always-entertaining, damn pretty self-titled blog, where he pontificates on all things music- and visual-related. And, earlier this month on his blog, Objektiv One (real name: Ross Edman), ... More >>
