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

If you've missed hearing Will Johnson behind the drumkit ever since the Funland Band broke up, tune in to NBC tonight.

Monsters Of Folk, now featuring the Centro-matic frontman on drums--along with Jim James, Conor Oberst, M. Ward and Mike Mogis--will be the musical guest on The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien.

Unfortunately for Texas fans, this will be the closest thing to seeing the band live in the foreseeable future. Of the 19 North America dates listed on the band's touring schedule, the closest stop is Louisville, KY.

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.
