to update the Web site copy, preferring instead to focus all his attention on our Facebook page -- but since we can't leave our site languishing completely, here's at least a brief blurb to let everyone know that our next gig is Saturday, July 27, at the beloved Barley House. Yeah, we probably won't actually start until 10 p.m., but you should probably show up at 9:30 like the poster says, just to ensure that you get a good seat. ("Good seat" in Diamondbag parlance means one as far from the stage as possible, of course.)

Hope to see you there!

Sure, if The Dallas Morning News were to compile a list of, say, the top 100 tribute bands in Dallas, we bet that most fans would admit the possibility that Diamondbag might make the cut. But to be featured as one of the five movers and shakers of the Dallas tribute band scene in a splashy Guide article leaves even us, well, a little verklempt. (Of course, if you're feeling crazy, you can shell out the mighty 50 cents at the newsstand and see the pictures too.) The Observer may have given us no love in their recent Music Awards, but at least the Morning News is smart enough to recognize real talent when they see it. To tell you the truth, we're just glad that they didn't say we suck.

Diamondbag at 2009 Lakewoodstock

Sucky-sucky, $10!

Our previous poll posed the musical question, "Latkes, kishkas, or kreplach: Which will be the concession of choice on the big Neil/Barbra tour?" Of course, time reveals all, including the lameness of our own polls, since the big Neil / Barbra tour was as much a non-starter as a Mo Rocca quip at a Rotary Club meeting.

We'll try to do better in our new poll du jour, where we ask the non-musical question, "If a tree falls in the Arboretum, and 1,000 people are there to hear it, does Diamondbag still suck?"
