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

What you missed on DC9 this week as you wondered, "Are they or aren't they?" and collectively dumbed down the entire region...

-We saw The New York Times waaaaaaaaay overestimate the amount of fans UNT football has. -We got all "OMFG" about Lisa Loeb's appearance on Gossip Girl. -We got confirmation that Ozzfest 2008 would be a one-day, one-off fest in Frisco. -We found out the details on the next Toadies release. -We recalled Rhett Miller's barbecue sauce sell-out. -We ambushed Denton with some Japanther. -We found out Tiger Moth's plans to re-open the Darkside. -And we, again, spread the joy of free mp3 downloads:

RTB2 -- "The Spilling Blood Child"
Whiskey Folk Ramblers -- "Moanin' Rag"
Lil Wil -- "My Dougie (Radio Mix)"
Murry Hammond -- "Lost At Sea"
Japanther -- "$100 Cover"
Shibboleth -- "The 1912 Horsey Rebellion"
Tiger Moth -- "You Gotta"
Mount Righteous -- "When The Child Awakes"

We'll have your weekend plans up and ready in a few. --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.
