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

Here's what you might've missed on DC9 this week as you rooted for a Celtics-Lakers NBA Finals like the good basketball fan that you are...

- We loved the '80s and confused '80s pop acts with '70s baseball greats. - We went country with Jessica Simpson. - We danced the Chicken Dance--but turned down every request to do the Hokey Pokey because we're above that, dammit! - We thought we were turning Japanese with A-Kon. - We traveled back in time and watched Freddie King. - And we gave you s'more mp3s:

I Love Math -- "A Good Flying Bird (Guided By Voices cover)"
I Love Math -- "I Remember When I Loved Her (The Zombies cover)"
Zanzibar Snails -- "Lengua"
The Black Angels -- "Doves"
Brothers & Sisters -- "One Night"

...and we'll have your weekend plans ready for you in a little bit. --Pete Freedman

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.
