I would never, ever attempt to trap a Blitzen or any of his reindeer friends, but I would want to spread the word that tomorrow at 3 p.m., Good Records is hosting a free in-store with Blitzen Trapper. So you may want to tell the in-coming inclement weather to high-tail it out of Big D so you can leave your house. Sure, attending the show might throw a wrench in your actual, you know, "work" day but it's a perfect neighborhood destination for if any snow cancellations come up. —Merritt Martin
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.
