So, the bidding just closed on that Tripping Daisy Dallas Observer Music Award I told you about on Wednesday, and, turns out, it wasn't worth $107.50 after all. Nope, the Lucite doorstop went for ... $405. And it sold to an enormous Tripping Daisy and Polyphonic Spree fan, judging by rics_delivers's other purchases, among them: a P.Spree seven-inch, this Grandaddy-Polyphonic Spree split seven-inch, a copy of Tales From the Edge Vol. 4 featuring the Daisy's "Lost & Found" and a never-worn Spree choir robe.
In related news, I too sold my 1998 award. Three dollars. One bidder. --Robert Wilonsky
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.
