Bad news, folks: Jay Reatard's been removed from tonight's bill at Club Dada.

The Strange Boys and Cheap Time, the opening acts for tonight's show, will still play--but that's a big headliner Dada just lost.

So...um...why's he out?

Well, I just got off the horn with Ben Tapia, co-owner at Club Dada, who has already faced himself one hell of a weekend. According to Tapia, Reatard was far too inebriated to perform.

"He stumbled out of here with these two girls," Tapia says. "I wouldn't be surprised if he was passed out on their couches right now."

Adds Tapia: "His band is pissed."

So there you go. No Jay Reatard tonight.

Hopefully some of you will read this before you head down there... --Pete Freedman

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.
