We've gone a few weeks now without our (once) weekly Show Announcements posting about, go figure, upcoming shows that get announced each week. Sorry for the lapse there, folks--it'll make its way back soon enough, promise.
In the meantime, let me use this post as an excuse to spread the word that, on Thursday, October 22, at the Granada Theater, Built to Spill and Dinosaur Jr. will be rolling through town for a show for which the theater has yet to start selling tickets. Which is awesome because a) Dinosaur Jr. absolutely killed at this year's SXSW, and b) the above video for the band's "Over It" single (from the new disc Farm) is bound to cheer up even the worst case of the Mondays and I now have a reason to post it. Score.
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.
