Pretty sure I'm in Austin right now--seems it at least; there's a whole bunch of young people running around acting like there's something going on. I dunno, this is a pretty early wake-up call for me.
But I digress: I'll be here all weekend long, along with Observer Web editor and photographer extraordinaire Patrick Michels, documenting this year's fest for your reading please both here and on our DC9 at Night twitter feed, which you should start following immediately, as it'll no doubt be easier for us to whip out our cell phones and wow you with 140 characters of our top-notch prose than it will be to find a place where we don't mind busting out our laptop and typing away...
Again, I digress: First up on our list of must-sees is School of Seven Bells, which is set to hit Zilker Park's far east main stage at 'bout a half past noon. After that? Not sure. The Knux? The Avett Brothers? The Walkmen? Definitely The Walkmen.
Anyway, we'll be in touch. Stay tuned...
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.
