Everyone's talking about Erykah Badu's surprise appearance and performance with My Morning Jacket on Saturday night at the Palladium...

Stereogum writes: "I really thought that the Bonnaroo cover of this one would be MMJ's best one forevermore. But you win, Dallas."

Meanwhile, Chris Cantalini of the locally based Gorilla vs Bear regrets not showing: "...if I would've known that Ms. Badu was going to show up at the Palladium last night to help out on My Morning Jacket's cover of her live fave "Tyrone," I totally would've actually gone."

All fine and good. But the real treat: Mr. Cantalini also has the mp3 of the performance. So, enjoy. --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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
