I'm not sure how you spent your Friday night, but we sent our photographer Scott Mitchell into the nine circles of hell, which apparently look like a fashion show, meets performance art meets a zombie cocktail party. The hybrid art collective and digital publication, Austere Mag's event featuring the work of designers from DFW, Austin, New Orleans, or Portland. The event bore this warning: "violence and hypersexuality." If you weren't in attendance, not to worry, we're here to indulge your inner voyeur.
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.
