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

'Cause Tom Petty's a good boy, loves his mama, loves Jesus, and America, too, he and the rest o' the Heartbreakers are launching a ticket auction for the front row seats at shows in their upcoming tour (which includes a stop at Superpages.com Center on August 27). And the proceeds are going to Habitat for Humanity, to help the victims of the Midwest flood.

You can bid here...but you better make sure your bank accounts are in line first, as there's a $1,000 minimum donation.

Which brings me to...

"Free Falling"? More like "Out Of My Price Range Falling"!

Thanks, I'll be here all week. Oh, and tip Wilonksy and Whitt, they're workin' hard for ya. --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.
