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

This week, armed again with our discman, headphones and camera, we ambushed unsuspecting citizens at The Shops at Legacy in Plano, where we’ll be spending at least part of our weekend.

We played our victims the song “(My Head)” by Times New Viking of Columbus, Ohio. The track is on the noise-rock outfit’s third album, Rip It Off.

This Saturday night, Times New Viking will be playing at Club Dada with two deserving local acts, Record Hop and Teenage Cool Kids. Should be a great show.

So, if you like the song and you want to hear it again, feel free to download it:

Times New Viking -- "(My Head)"

Oh, and the first two people to e-mail Pete with “I like my Vikings new, timely and very, very dissonant” in the subject line will win a pair of tickets to the show. --Daniel Rodrigue

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.
