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

And so it begins, I guess. A few weeks back, when we told you about Sarah Jaffe's incredible new EP, and, specifically, about the stunning title track "Even Born Again", we warned you this might happen.

Well, now the national accolades are starting pour in. Jaffe, who the New York Times already (lazily) compared to Norah Jones, is now getting praise from another beacon of all things intelligent and forward-thinking: National Public Radio. Today, Jaffe's "Even Born Again" was tapped as NPR's Song of the Day--a nice little prize that nets Jaffe both a write-up and a front-page icon on NPR's site.

Congrats to the fast-rising clean-up DOMA winner, who'll surely be playing to a uncomfortably packed house tonight as she, Austin's phenomenal Brothers & Sisters and Fort Worth's devastatingly underappreciated Telegraph Canyon take to The Cavern's stage. --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.
