Trying to get your arts fix is kinda like squeezing out paints on a palette. Your visual arts are the blue and your music is the red ... and dang, if they don’t turn into something completely awesome when they’re mixed. It’s such a shame to isolate them, no? ArtLoveMagic’s Underground 2013 doesn’t think they should languish in solitary either — so they host an annual mishmash that creates beautiful kaleidoscopes of creativity in a one-stop experience. More than 100 artists and musicians contribute visual, tactile and auditory experiences that sprawl throughout the Artist Quarters, Janette Kennedy Gallery and the Underground Room of the historic SouthSide on Lamar building (1409 S. Lamar St.). Interactive exhibitions set the backdrop as you browse paintings, immerse yourself in poetry performances or catch live music on one of many stages between 8 p.m. and midnight on Saturday. Tickets are $10 at underground5.eventbrite.com/.

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.
