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

This morning in Uptown, a couple of Steelers fans -- they were wearing ponchos -- drank coffee in the ankle-high snow. Store owners raked mounds of white off their walk-ins, and Dallas folks screamed at cars driving slowly on McKinney avenue: "Go home!"

Several hours before this morning's snowpocalypse, which at this moment feels like the only thing going on, Kid Rock and Duran Duran brought a fiery show to the Verizon Theatre, and The Flaming Lips and Neon Indian lit up the Palladium.

Doesn't that sound so... warm?

Our photographers Roger Caldwell and Mattie Stafford braved the frost to grab shots, which we're posting after the jump. Jump on over to our slideshow section to view the full round of the Flaming Lips at the Palladium.

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.
