Normally, we wouldn't assail you with tons of videos first thing in the morning. (Hate for your boss to want to block DC-9 for killing your bandwidth -- it happens.) But we just came across a live video of The Burning Hotels playing at the Palladium Loft. Sometimes this local indie band's catchy riffs get caught in our head. The live version of "Out and Alone" feels like a good way to start a Thursday morning. The Burning Hotels' next show is 8 p.m. March 28 at the Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth with Black Tie Dynasty and Odis. -- Chelsea Ide
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.
