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

Shiny Around The Edges has a great new track up on its MySpace page: a live version of “I Hover Above You”, recorded at Sons of Hermann Hall back in February.

But even better than the live version is the news that you’ll soon be able to hear the studio take. The band’s upcoming album is complete and ready for release, perhaps as soon as the fall--good thing too, as the band says it has sold out of pretty much everything else.

Maybe you can start a merch-table bidding war on the last remaining T-shirt or seven-inch at their next gig, opening for Record Hop at Rubber Gloves on July 31. --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.
