Charity Jam

Labor Day in Texas is normally marked by oppressively hot flip-flop weather, but if you feel like donning your boots for a good cause, check out the Pickin' for Preemies event Monday at Billy Bob's Texas, 2520 Rodeo Plaza. Local country artists including Wade Bowen, Bleu Edmonson, Stoney Larue, Jason Boland and many more will perform acoustic sets, with the proceeds benefiting the Cook Children's Hospital. Tickets are $25 or $30 at the door. Festivities begin at 5 p.m. Call 817-624-7117 or visit

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
