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

True story. Read it here. And pop on over to Unfair Park, where Robert Wilonsky's got more details.

But, really, haven't we been beating this drum for a while now? Yep, sure have.

On a related note, this seems as good a time as ever to remind you that this year's Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase will take place on Saturday, July 17--in the very place that The New York Times just wrote about, y'all!

On a less related note, maybe now Denton will stop beating the drum on the similar piece it had in the Times two years ago?

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.
