Your daily dose of national music news for Wednesday, September 29, 2009...
- It now only takes Eddie Vedder 30 minutes to write a song? That story isn't as cool as coming up with his lyrics for Ten while surfing.
- Wolfgang's Vault will release 1,000 of it's live shows for purchase starting November 3. Now is your chance to trade in the shitty Grateful Dead fan recording for something a little better.
Danger Mouse and The Shins' James Mercer have formed Broken Bells. So, it's slow-core you can dance too?
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.
