The Running Man

Way to blow it, Zac Crain. You spent years pissing off local bands as this paper's music editor, and now that you've announced your mayoral candidacy in Dallas, you might expect them to come rushing back with open arms and cheerful votes. Time heals all wounds, right? Well, a certain column called Sack of Kittens might indicate otherwise; good luck getting Sack victims like Loaded Moses, Spoonfed Tribe, Alligator Dave, Eden Automatic, Kwik Buddha, Fair to Midland and Supercell to cast kind votes. Payback's a bitch. Fortunately, for your mayoral announcement party at Sons of Hermann Hall, 3414 Elm St., at 8 p.m., you've invited two solid bands to perform, 2006 Dallas Observer Music Awards nominees Shibboleth and Sorta, and you're whipping up free food from Deep Ellum's AllGood Café. Buddy, how'd you know we'd vote for free treats? Call 214-360-7813.
Mon., April 24, 8 p.m.
