We're so close.
You may have noticed yesterday was St. Patrick's Day. 'Round one in the morning, there were enough drunk St. Paddy's day fans wandering downtown Austin to fill a stadium. So, we're going to consider that space marked.
We stopped into Mexican Summer & Gorilla Vs. Bear's killer lineup today, which featured Grimes, Summer Camp and Cass McCombs. Cass was exacto-knife sharp (we'll be along soon with photos and video), and (kinda better?) we were able to spot another bingo square: the front-row texter.
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.
