This week's most unconventional show was not at a house in Denton or a taqueria somewhere. It was in Preston Hollow, where Dallas lawyer Lisa Blue-Baron booked Journey and Styx for her Christmas Party.

Her neighbors are either very tolerant or very far away (probably that one), because the Blue-Baron residence is the Gexa Energy Pavilion of North Dallas mansions. In 2010, she had Sheryl Crow and Dukes of September, which features Boz Scaggs, Michael McDonald and Donald Fagen, who is probably a miserable troll of a party guest.

Trial lawyers and big-ticket philanthropists apparently don't use the same social media as us common folk, because the documentation from the weekend's festivities is pretty scarce. But journalists are definitely still using YouTube, and a contingent from the Morning News was on the scene. Columnist Alan Peppard has all the feelings about Journey's contest-winning new lead singer you can handle, and Senior Managing Editor Mark Francescutti uploaded a video. Observe:

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.
