What you missed on DC9 this week as you sat around marveling at how much you actually enjoyed Iron Man...

- We told you about Strawberry Fields' move and what it meant for the future of the store's DIY concerts. - We let you know about a certain icon's upcoming tour stop in town. - We told you how to score front row seats to a show from a band that will never, ever, ever play Dallas again. - We clued you into free downloads from Nine Inch Nails and The Offspring and told you about NIN's upcoming tour. - We updated you on Argyle's Footloose situation. - We went to Ghostbar for nostalgia's sake. - We told you how to score a signed copy of Mogwais' Young Team re-issue. - We hit the streets to get your thoughts on What Made Milwaukee Famous. - We broke down what TVT Records' bankruptcy means for some locals. - ...and we said goodbye to our local American Idol contestant.

Oh, and we gave you a crap-load of free mp3s:

Nine Inch Nails -- "Echoplex"
Tomorrowpeople -- "Cruel"
Mom -- "Skipping Stones"
Akkolyte -- "A Generation of Fuckfaces"
Airline -- "Farewell Republica"
The Lash Outs -- "The Kids Don't Wanna Dance"
What Made Milwaukee Famous -- "Sultan"

Good Friday's coming up, then we're out. --Pete Feedman

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.
