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

These three bands have been rolling around Texas on a mini-tour: They just got in from Beaumont, did last night's show in Denton, spent a couple hours in their own beds, then off to Abilene. The Toadies/Phuss collaboration goes beyond this small tour, as Toadie Vaden Todd Lewis helped produce the Phuss' debut CD.

Josh of The Phuss couldn't say enough about how much they've been learning about being a big boy band by traveling with Toadies, even little details like how to sell their T-shirts more effectively. Must have worked: I came back with a copy of the Phuss album and a Toadies T-shirt. The Phuss ends up back in Fort Worth at Lola's on Saturday, April 7. - Mike Brooks

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.
