Speaking of topless danceterias, how 'bout the bands that provide their soundtracks? Because over on DC9 Pete brings confirmation of the long-suspected news that Ozzfest will indeed be a one-day, single-city extravaganza with Frisco as the single city for that one day. The 'burb will blossom into a metal mecca on August 9 at Pizza Hut Park -- because, really, nothing says "all-day festival" like August 9 in North Texas. Pete's got the full line-up (including these familiar locals) and ticket sales dates, but folks are a wee bit upset over here because, like, Metallica's playing the fest for the first time, and folks'll have to road trip it to Texas if they wanna seek and destroy. Comments like, oh, "You let your fans down this year with this shit you pulled OZZFEST, FUCK YOU!!!!" are tending to be fairly common. --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.
