Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

His 2006 ass-whipping at the hands of Rick Perry, in which Kinky Friedman took less than 13 percent of the vote, hasn't stopped the Friedman's gubernatorial aspirations. He's already got his eye on the 2010 election. Then again, maybe this is all just a ploy to sell cigars.

Either way, to advance the cause, Plano Kinky supporter Sean Robinson is asking bands to dedicate September 26 gigs to the Texas Jewboy's cause with "1000 Bands, One Day, Rockin The Vote For Democracy."

Bands, venues and promoters are asked to send information about their Kinky-supporting gigs to the candidate's 2010 campaign page, TheKinkster.org. And do remember that it's TheKinkster dot-org; I found out the hard way that mistakenly entering dot-com after that URL will lead you to a decidedly NSFW site.

But if you need to meet Friedman before committing to his cause, you're in luck. He'll be at Tobacco Lane On The Square (512 Main St.) in Fort Worth at 4 p.m. today and at Tobacco Box (8809 Lakeview Pkwy.) in Rowlett at 4 p.m. tomorrow to promote his new line of cigars. 

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.
