Patrick Michels is putting the finishing touches on what's sure to be a sprawling slide show from last night's Dallas Observer Music Awards at the Granada. (Hence, the reason for no DC9 postings today -- but, look, back in my day, we wrapped around 1 a.m., grabbed an early breakfast, shook off the bourbonitis and were back in the office at 9. Kids today, I swear.)
I'll update here when it's up (Update: It's up, with captions forthcoming), but till then this preview -- because, really, one of the many highlights of the evening involved Mike Modano and Willa Ford, damned good sports and awfully good people, presenting the Best Experimental/Avant-Garde Act award to Shiny Around the Edges. Made no sense at all. Kinda of like that moment backstage when Martellus Bennett told Cheaters host Joey Greco, "You're doin' what I wanna do one day."
