This week we sent Observer intern Daniel Rodrigue out on the town to find out what real people think about What Made Milwaukee Famous' single "Sultan" ...and videotape their reactions. See what your fellow Dallasites made of the track, which Stereogum, Pitchfork and NPR all dig. (Oh, Pete, Daniel and I all like it, too.)
Wish you could have been on the video espousing your love/hate of the song? Well, you're in luck (sort of), because we're making Aural Ambush a weekly thing here on DC-9. Each Thursday we'll offer up a video of on-the-street (OK, it might be indoor) reviews of songs from bands about to hit Dallas area stages. -- Chelsea Ide
Austin-based What Made Milwaukee Famous will perform 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 9, at The Loft with The Whigs and The Dead Trees. $10.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
