    Observer Writer Jesse Hughey Named Clubs Editor

    In case you missed his posting, Friday was Rich Lopez’s last day as the Dallas Observer’s clubs editor. Now that he is raking in the big bucks as a freelance writer and bookstore clerk, I have the formidable task of taking over for him. That means club owners, music booking agents, promoters, m ...

    Updating You On A Former Me

    Saw a link to this interesting item on Sam Machkovech's BigDlittled blog in case you were already pining for the days of yore a whole two weeks into my tenure here. Writes Sam: "You'll be seeing a little more of me around these parts for a bit" Sure. The more the merrier. -- Pete Freedman

    Galaxy Club Owes A Bunch of People a Bunch of Money. Whoops.

    Our old colleague Sam Machkovech is right: The Galaxy Club is -- for the moment, at least -- no mas. What you see at right is the seizure notice slapped on the club yesterday by Randy Brestrup, a local officer for the Office of the State Comptroller. Unfair Park has learned the club was seized becau ... More >>

    R.I.P., Club Clearview

    Over at Dd, our boy Sam Machkovech has gotten a scoop on a story (and don't even think about not crediting that guy or he'll totally kick your ass) that will surely shake the core of a Deep Ellum that has been slowly but surely climbing out of a slump. Club Clearview is done. Kaput. Over. It doesn't ... More >>

    Friends with Benefits

    Yeah, yeah, so we're a little late with this; never you mind that. What's more important is that two benefit concerts last weekend proved it's possible for totally different artistic scenes to come together for the sake of a great show, if you just tack the words "benefit" or "fundraiser" to the nam ...

    Mavs Can't Win a Damned Thing

    If you thought things weren't going well at Reunion Arena last night, check out how triple poorly they went at the American Airlines Center, where the Maverics unveiled the Western Conference Championship banner. Kind of. Sort of. This was just before Don Nelson's Golden State Warriors took the Mavs ... More >>

    Oh No, Ne-Yo

    This is what happens when you're between music editors: The Ne-Yo show our dead-tree edition said was happening next week at Smirnoff Centre ain't happening. Was canceled a while ago, in fact. Please ignore our screw-up, which no doubt has former music editor Sam Machkovech smiling in the wilds of A ... More >>

    Shocking

    For this, you traveled to Africa? So what has ex-Observer music editor Sam Machkovech been up to since he and the paper parted ways? Rafting down the Nile River. Judging by that hand signal he's throwing, I'd say that Sam may have left the Observer, but some of that Observer spirit hasn't yet left ... More >>

    Yeah, We're Sirius

    Since the latest paper edition of Unfair Park hasn't reached newsstands around town just yet, here's a recap of a plug in the issue: I'm guest-hosting "Blog Radio" on Sirius channel 26 tonight, 9-11 p.m. CST, with Chris Cantalini and Danny Balis.

    Reheated Meat Loaf

    In case you were wondering just what was going to happen with the next Bat Out of Hell album, fret no more. Meat Loaf and songwriter Jim Steinman are portrayed as surprisingly chummy in this not-too-informative post-lawsuit write-up...not that we're suspicious or nothin'. --Sam Machkovech

    A Beautiful Thing

    Signed up for Eisley's e-mail/MySpace list? Yeah, I'm not, either; the Dupree siblings' father, Boyd, kinda rambles in his updates about the band of Tyler super-teens, and there isn't much in Eisley world to report lately, other than songwriting and preparation for their next record. Well, until tod ... More >>

    Nothing's Free. Not Even Freestyle Rap.

    As promised in this week's And Another Thing, here's the Astronautalis freestyle recorded over the phone on Tuesday morning. After you have a laugh at the fact that I actually beatboxed on this recording, consider how hard it has to be to come up with a freestyle rap off the top of your head, let al ... More >>

    If you haven't already, read the first item in this week's And Another Thing column. It recaps the up-to-now of the story about the Curtain Club, Salim Nourallah and a cow from the mid-cities (really) that led to this Tuesday-morning voicemail from local booking agent Doug Simmons, and the MP3 means ...

    Arcadia on Fire

    Literally. The Arcadia Theater, along with much of the block on Lower Greenville that houses Nuevo Leon and other bars and shops, is on fire at this very moment. We can even see the thick black smoke filling the skies from as far away as Maple and Oak Lawn Avenues. The Dallas Morning News is reporti ... More >>

    Bill's Records and Tapes and Posters and Crap

    Texas Gigs hinted at it last week, and The Dallas Morning News confirmed it yesterday, but it was just a matter of time before it became official: Bill's Records is moving. The announcement jumps the gun a bit, as the record store's current lease doesn't run out for another eight months, but anyone ... More >>

    I'm no grade-A shopper, so this might sound a little ignorant to readers who own one or more credit cards, but what in the hell happened to NorthPark Center?

    Baby's First Blowjob

    This week at nerve.com, former Observer music editor Sarah Hepola makes Rhett Miller say uncomfortable things about his son. He also indirectly calls Winona Ryder "cuckoo." For both of those reasons, Rhett, you might've won us back. -Sam Machkovech
