Speaking of Erykah Badu: Some big news out of the Queen of Neo-Soul's camp today, as it's been announced that, on Friday, December 17, starting at 9 p.m.at the PM Lounge in downtown Dallas' The Joule hotel, the Dallas icon will make her DJ debut, performing under the name DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown.
We recommend following through on this bit of advice from the event's Facebook page: "THIS EVENT WILL HIT CAPACITY VERY EARLY!! ARRIVE VERY EARLY IF YOU PLAN ON GETTING IN." Sounds about right.
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.
