What you might've missed this week on DC9 as you mourned the loss of a comedic giant...
- We checked out Tom Waits at the Palladium, and wondered what the crap was up with the venue that night? - We celebrated the return of our favorite day-time weekend activity. - We congratulated a local icon on taking home a BET award. - We, uh, smile smiled at Freddie Prinze Jr.'s acting abilities. - We ambushed West Village with some No Age. - We marveled at the amount of national press our little burg earned this week. - And we announced our nominees for this year's DOMAs. (So, uh, go vote already!) - And we gave you a few free mp3s for download, too...
...and that was your week. Coming up soon: Your weekend. --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.
