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

Judging by the slew of good shows going on in our area this evening, the musical gods are indeed shining down upon us. Check out this list...

First off, as you already know, tonight marks the final night of the Old 97s four-night run at Sons of Hermann Hall. It also marks the first of the Toadies' two-night run at Trees.

But there's much, much more: Tonight at the Granada Theater you'll find a great triple bill of Slobberbone, Scott H. Biram and Telegraph Canyon at The Granada. And, downtown at City Tavern, the dirge-rocking True Widow performs an "An Evening With..." affair where it plans to unveil some of its new songs. And, over at the House of Blues, a more emo bill is up for grabs, featuring Sleeperstar, Jillian Edwards, Stars Go Dim and Ryan Edgar tonight at House of Blues?

All that a little heavy for you? Then check out Sarah Jaffe and Jeremy Bueller at Opening Bell Coffee for a folkier, singer-songwriter vibe.

And, last, but not least: The King Bucks, Grant Jones & The Pistol Grip Lassos and The O's hit up the grand opening of La Grange down in Deep Ellum, right across from Trees.

Tomorrow night's busy, sure--but tonight's offerings may take the cake...

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.
