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

Forgive me, I don't know who created this poster, but the lineup is pretty great. And The Lion's Den was the scene of the infamous SlimeRave 2012, which people are still talking about in hushed tones. And the striking, strange black and white concept of this poster would be enough to get me back down in that basement. I'm still finding remnants of that night on my purse.

Nature Boys, Mean and Ugly, Collick, Kid Prison and the highly recommended Spacebeach will all be throwing down at the Den. As it is April Fools' Day, you can expect some shenanigans. Or pranks. Or whatever the kids called them these days.

It's an early show, 6 p.m.

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.
