Most of the people on the patio outside last night's Dandy Warhols show at the Granada Theater sure seemed to. But I'm guessing the employee for Southern Comfort--the one asking the above question and, score, handing out free shots--didn't.

Some people--not gonna name names, but it happened--laughed at her. True story. (For the record, I think I snickered.)

Whatever, the girl was just doing her job, handing out her free shots, as well as a complimentary compact disc of Polyphonic Spree and DJ Lord videos to remind people of the free SoCo-sponsored Polyphonic Spree and DJ Lord show coming to the Palladium Ballroom on September 24

Admission's still up for grabs from the looks of things over at SoCo's uncerCOVER site, where you can go sign up for tickets and info about the show. Anyway, there you go, in case you forgot, which I had.

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.
