Merry Christmas, or a belated Happy Hanukkah or a Festive Flight of the Spaghetti Monster or whatever it is you do to break up the winter.
We at DC9 at Night will be celebrating by not being on the Internet for a couple days. Your regularly scheduled DFW music news, interviews and whimsy will return on Thursday.
Before you too put down your smartphone and start trying to explain your career to grandma again, we do have a couple notes from the last few days of North Texas music. Vanessa Quilantan went to a run-down theater off Harry Hines to see 8 Ball and MJG celebrate the 20th anniversary of Comin Out Hard. Jay Z made Daniel Rodrigue feel special at American Airlines Center, and we've got a few more New Year's Eve plans for you.
And we leave you with the late, great Ray Price. Merry Christmas.
