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

After jumping around a bit on Spiro's back patio listening to Teenage Bottlerocket, I headed toward the ladies room, only to be diverted by the childlike, sweet vocals of Madeline Adams. She and her band, Madeline, enchanted a small gathering with folky songs conjuring thoughts of Tilly and the Wall and Kimya Dawson. I had to stay and watch to see Robbie Cucciaro play the beat up baritone tuba. It was beautiful. Check out

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.
