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

Yesterday afternoon, lead JoBro Joe Jonas, like his Colleyville-bred girlfriend before him, gave Neon Indian an official Twitter endorsement, calling the band "a good listen."

Unsurprisingly, Hipster Runoff sister site The Alt Report is all over the news, asking the important questions, like "Will the Jonas Brothers write a chillwave album in 2k12?" and "Has chillwave gone mainstream/tween stream?" Interesting questions, for sure--and a fun read well worth the few minutes it takes.

Me? I'm just really enjoying the support faux-locals are giving other faux-locals these days. Really encouraging stuff for the faux-local music scene, I think.

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.
