Saturday night's Dallas Observer Music Awards showcase was a humdinger -- top-notch performances in packed-to-the-rafters venues full of sweaty drunks, and, really, what more could you want? But remember, don't ditch your red wristbands: They'll get you into tomorrow night's Dallas Observer Music Awards ceremony at the Granada Theater, which kicks off at 8 p.m. and promises to be an affair to remember.
But if you couldn't make it Saturday night -- like, oh, you had some family obligation, ahem -- well, fret not: You can pick up tickets at Unfair Park HQ today and tomorrow, or hope there are some left at Granada will call tomorrow night. And did I mention that Bottle Rocket's Bob Musgrave, former KTVT-Channel 11 anchor-reporter Sarah Dodd and her husband will be presenting some awards tomorrow night? No? Well, now I did. And, once more, here's a sneak peek at what tomorrow night promises: "Paradise," indeed. --Robert Wilonsky
