If you've seen Scary Movies 3 or 4, or have friends who went an offbeat direction with their wedding entertainment, you may already be familiar with the work of Michael Jackson impersonator extraordinaire Edward Moss.

If you rolled into The Lodge last night expecting to grab a beer at your usual Tuesday night table for your usual Tuesday night view, by now you're also well familiar with Moss' talents which -- while they include elaborate costume changes, makeup and dance moves, also include lip-synching to MJ's hits.

It's been a good long while since DC9's last memorable visit to the gentlemen's club (or to this one), but squint a little and this sight is almost too weird. Grapple with the thought of Michael Jackson sharing a stage with strippers, surrounded by big cats on a rocky outcropping, cheered on by the seventy-somethings in the front row. It's all true -- see for yourself in our slideshow.

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.
