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

While I was caught up getting married Saturday night (yeah, I'm totally a missus now),


freelancers took the time to hit up a couple worthwhile events. First, Roger Caldwell headed to the Forever The Sickest Kids CD release show at House of Blues and took

plenty of pictures

for your viewing pleasure.

Then the lovely Krissi Reeves drove down to Duncanville to skate. Yes, you read that right. Central Booking (who bring The Party) hosted a Saturday Night Skate Jam at Red Bird Skate Land. She told us it was better than "Saturday nights at White Rock Skating Rink circa 1989. Those prepubescent evenings were awkwardly glorious, but this time there was beer." Read her review along side photos from the skate party. -- Chelsea Ide (last name change coming... eventually)

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.
