Ceremonial Guitar Smash
When the Hard Rock Cafe Dallas first opened in 2009, it was a red-carpet event, and like other Hard Rock grand openings, it included a ceremonial guitar smash as a way of christening the new space, rock-and-roll style. The guests of honor were band members from the Old 97’s, a Dallas-based alternative country band.
