Turns out I may have spoken too soon in my column this week when I wrote that Sunday night's Club Dada gig was The Enormous Magic Verb's last.

In the ol' inbox today comes a note from EMV player Chad Siewert, who writes:

"There must be some confusion, the band is not breaking up, the show at dada was our last show for a little while, not forever. The fall is a busy time for myself and Darin, our bass player....We are taking a break for a little bit, but will no doubt be back in the late winter/early spring time."

Well, that's interesting, I guess. But not as interesting as this bit that Siewert goes on to share about his own solo project:

"I am writing a concept album about a penis who develops the ability to detach himself from his human body at night, and fly around the world in search of historic artifacts or something like that, I am in the planning stages really."

One can only hope that he's being serious, 'cause that right there sounds amazing. --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.
