Indie Writer Benefit
Unfortunately, none of the money from this benefit will be going to freelance Dallas Observer writers. But don't let that stop you from heading out to Secret HeadQuarters in Denton for this fund-raiser for indiewriter.net, an independent Web site and magazine dedicated to "supporting independent authors and their publication." Your $5 will go to help this publisher of local writers stay in business, and if you're not into the whole "giving for giving's sake" thing, it will at least buy you admission to a pretty cool concert. Local acoustic, post-rock and folk bands Mom, George Neal, Jen Seman of Shiny Around the Edges, Delphi, Florene and Tame...Tame and Quiet are scheduled to perform, practically guaranteeing an enjoyable, fairly mellow listening experience and—assuming broke, struggling writers aren't broke and struggling because God hates them—maybe a slightly better chance of getting into heaven. No promises, though. It's only five bucks, after all.
