And if you weren't there--or you somehow didn't hear--the duo raised the bar on their already excellent stage show by performing their farewell to Dallas set with the backing of a full band instead of the traditional hip-hop route of relying on turntable or some other form of digital instrumentation.

For all of the fervent fans that the Sore Losers retain in North Texas, this vignette serves as a small meal--something for the loyals to chew on while we all await the fruits borne from their new creative home base.
