    I Remember When We Had to Put Out Compilation CDs...

    Do we really need to remind you that Peter Schmidt is a great musician, a great human being and a great football player? No, we thought not. Ah, the local-scene comp CD. That was so mid-'90s of us, back when we hunted for and gathered rare and unreleased tracks from swell local bands; maybe tomorrow ... More >>

    The Save Our Scene posse is in its second week of life and is already keeping its watchful eye on all city matters that affect its home, Deep Ellum. In particular, they attended yesterday's city council meeting and reported on some of the Deep Ellum news to come out of it, more so than The Dallas Mo ... More >>

    The Dish Ran Away With the...

    Did you know Spoon was coming? Nope. Now you do. Rare show. Real rare. Like, very and stuff. Blogs always get the skinny, don't they? In the comment thread on yesterday's Gorilla vs. Bear photo essay, an anonymous visitor asked, "Is anyone else going to Spoon's free show on the 10th at the Ridglea T ... More >>

    Wang Chung

    Congratulations are in order for Darci Ratliff, our Night & Day contributor who also runs a small blogging empire. Today, she adds yet another site to her Internet resume: Comedy Central Insider, the cable channel's as-of-yesterday unfunny blog. Sure, it had links to The Daily Show and The Colbert R ... More >>

    Re: Mediocrity

    Andrea's post below wholly ignores the fact that two very good concerts in the past few weeks, Dinosaur Jr. at the Gypsy Tea Room's Ballroom and the Books at Hailey's, either sold out or were filled to capacity. Neither of those bands covered Coldplay. Comparing national and local draws is a bit app ... More >>

    Double Wide Died

    Rumors are flying at Internet speed, so here's what I know for sure--the Double Wide is closing down. Their doors will not be open tonight and will not be open in the immediate future. I spoke with DW booking agent Chelsea Callahan just a few minutes ago--she answered her phone without even saying " ... More >>

    Dallas: City of Sleepers

    The SXSW wheel is turning, and the first rag to get officially caught in the gears is the Austin Chronicle, whose picks for day one of the music festival went online today. Good news: Dallas has a considerable presence on the hometown city's recommendation sheet, thanks to Midlake, Baboon and the St ... More >>

    Show Up, This Weekend

    Tonight, Austin's lounge-loving Small Stars open for super-quiet French folksters Mi and L'au, and that recommendation wins out solely based on how lame tonight's concert calendar is (no, I'm not going to say a damn nice thing about Electric Six or Reggie and the Full Effect). Tomorrow, however, is ... More >>
