[So we decided to try our hand at some live recording this weekend at South by Southwest. We did it on the same equipment we tape our interviews on, so the quality ain't gonna blow you away. But the crowd noise and whatnot do make these taped versions pretty fun in our book. Enough reading. Knock yourself out and download that sucker. -- Pete Freedman]
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.
