What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear Joe Rogers play. Right this way, your table’s waiting. The monthly Sammons Cabaret is a darn good reason to put down your knitting. Local personality Sheran Goodspeed Keyton takes the stage at 8 p.m. Thursday to channel Etta, croon some Cline and sing her way through the American songbook. It’s a classy way to kick off your weekend. Tickets are available at sammonsartcenter.org for $40 and include wine, beer and light appetizers. Sammons is located at 3630 Harry Hines Blvd.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
