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

Bones and walls are rattling. There's thundering everywhere!

The bass thunder is coming from the Village Voice Media SXSW party, which kicked-off 'round 5 p.m. with the awesome rock of Ume and will continue with Trae Tha Truth, Yelawolf, Fishbone, and Wu-Tang Clan (!!). We're sitting next to the Houston Press folks right now, who are liveblogging the whole night. Nice.

Speaking of awesome: fireworks.

We ventured onto the Austin Music Hall 3rd floor for a little breeze and caught some sky 'splosions after The Strokes wrapped up their show by Ladybird Lake. Very cool.

Be sure to follow Houston Press for live coverage of the Village Voice SXSW party throughout the night, and check back to DC9 tomorrow for more photos and video.

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.
