I hope you have your glow sticks ready. Here is a taste of Armin van Buuren, electronic, er…trance DJ at the Lizard Lounge on Saturday. Watch at your own risk; strobe lights can cause seizures.

Apparently John Heiman’s Cowboy spirit isn’t low after Saturday’s preseason loss. Check out his “jangle.” Wonder if these girls would perform it at half time?

If you didn’t attend Ozzfest because you didn’t want to, not because you couldn’t afford it and you have no desire to see what went on, stop reading/watching now. Here’s Ozzy, and the crowd singing “Mama I’m Coming Home.”

This next clip, also from Ozzfest, is “For Whom the Bell Tolls” by Metallica. I sure do hope it sounded better live--I was wishing my bell would toll about midway through this one.

Below, more Ozzfest and some shameless promotion by Metallica as they perform their new song, “Cyanide.” “Suicide, I’ve already died. It’s the funeral I’ve been waitin' for...” Catchy right? Sounds like a hit.

And finally, it’s an encore, one more from Metallica, but this time with King Diamond. Apparently we’ve only got a little over six “minutes of Satan,” but don’t worry, King Diamond, we don’t think you “fucked it up.”

...and that was your weekend. --Courtney Clenney

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.
