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

Back in May, we told you about the greatness that is the weekly, Wednesday night, R.C. Williams-led Prophet Bar jam sessions, where local hip-hop and funk musicians gather to create beats on the fly, sometimes with the help of touring acts like Bun B and Raheem DeVaughn.

Still haven't ventured out to the event yet, though? Well, maybe this will inspire you: On Wednesday, October 21, R.C. Williams and crew will be joined by longtime favorite underground hip-hop luminaries Dead Prez.

Pretty sure they don't do advance sales to the weekly jam, so if you want in on this one, be sure to get to the Prophet Bar early...

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.
