For all of the lovely folks in the Dallas music scene, Christmas came a little early this year. Or to put it another way, the Dallas Observer Music Awards showed up a little late. But it wound up working out perfectly: We kicked off December in the best way possible, with all the requisite insanity of the DOMA showcase in Deep Ellum and then, a few days later, all the drunken kudos our hungover heads could muster at the DOMA ceremony.

Throughout both nights of DOMA action, we had our resident chronicler, Mike Brooks, there to take photos. But we also had our videographer, Sarah Passon, there to shoot video -- just in case your memory got a little blurry or you second-guessed whether that marching band really did show up.

Shit got weird at Three Links when Captured! By Robots showed up recently

If there's one thing we can say about Three Links, it's that they'll book just about anything and everything -- and, more often than not, what they book is pretty great. Especially at the times when you might least suspect it. Case in point? The recent visit from bizarro (and admittedly gimmicky) San Francisco "band" Captured! By Robots.

With band leader (or technically "captive") Jay Vance bringing his act to Deep Ellum the other week, we couldn't help but send our videographer Sarah Passon over to, er, capture the proceedings. And they were plenty amusing.

Becca Sosa and Chad Barton got married by Wizards of Gore at Double Wide on Halloween

It doesn't get much more metal than a costume party for a metal show at the Double Wide on Halloween night, does it? Well, how about if that metal band is Wizards of Gore, the new incarnation of local legends Rigor Mortis? Or what if there's also a wedding taking place during that concert? Best of all, what if the bride is dressed as Amy Winehouse with a "Rehab" tank top? Yep. That would be it. That would be the most metal thing we can think of.

And what do you know, that's exactly what happened this past Halloween. Local metal fans Becca Sosa and Chad Barton tied the knot at Double Wide and our videographer Sarah Passon was there to catch the special night on film.
