What you missed this week on DC9 as our nation collectively poked its noses way too far into the Hogan family's business...

- We rocked out with Robert Smith and The Cure. Or was it The Joker and his henchmen? - We got schooled at Booker T. Washington's homecoming event. - We bit the Fight Bite bullet. - We found out why the Old 97's didn't get much face time in their new video: The Cylons. - We became "mates" with Black Joe Lewis. - We ambushed you as you peacefully tried to buy some books. - We gave away tickets to Mates of State, Evangelicals, Grand Ole Party and Rilo Kiley. But you, most likely, snoozed and lost. - And we hooked you up another round of mp3s...

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.
