LeAnn Rimes is giving a free concert tomorrow night at Gilley's, but there's a small catch: the only way to get in is to win tickets in a radio contest or register online to add your name to the standby list.

The press material plays up the fact that audiences will be bombarded with advertising for the new BlackJack II, spinning the marketing as a positive by promising "...interactive phone booths that showcase the music capabilities..." of the phone. ("Interactive" must be a marketing buzzword or something, because otherwise it seems awfully redundant here. Is there such a thing as a non-interactive phone booth?)

Anyway, the show is one of seven concerts in the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush series and the only to take place in Texas. I bet Robert Wilonsky can't wait. --Jesse Hughey

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.
