Last night on Twitter, the hashtag "heart shaped pizza" was trending nationwide for Valentine's Day. Over here in Dallas, as Pete Freedman teased in his recent cover story, Bucks Burnett celebrated Valentine's Day by opening an eight-track museum.

Half of the Tom Tom Club (who officially released a new eight-track through Burnett's Cloud 8 label last night), The O's and screwball singer Stu Dicious were on hand, performing and signing copies of their new eight-track releases for the Grand Opening.

Photographer Danny Hurley made it out for the watershed moment in Dallas music history. Why is it watershed? Because, as Pete pointed out, it's the first eight-track museum -- in the world.

Make the jump for a few more photos from Danny, and view the rest in his slide show.

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.
