Your daily dose of national music news for Wednesday, April 29, 2009...
- Have you ever sat around thinking "Man, it would be great to be Daft Punk!"? Well, if you play DJ Hero you'll have your chance!
- Artists are pulling out of the Michael Jackson tribute left-and-right. Mary J. Blige, Natalie Cole and Chris Brown have all now bowed out of the performance. But, hey, you still have Sister Sledge to look forward to!
I'm not sure the cover art for Weezer's new album Raditude is actually rad. Maybe, awesome?
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.
