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

Amanda Shires at Allgood Café on Friday, July 17
Amanda Shires starts this song at Allgood Café sounding as nervous as someone at their first show. Don't be fooled. Her soulful vocals paired with Rod Picott's constant strumming create ghostly music. This video features Amanda on fiddle and ukulele in two songs.

Aerosmith and ZZ Top at Superpages on Sunday, July 19
In this clip, ZZ Top joins Aerosmith in a battle of "Rattlesnake Shake." I guarantee there was no objection to doing that saucy shake. These guys are getting on up there in age, but man, they still have mad skill and sex appeal!

STC at Mosaic on Sunday, July 19
Something tells me this is not the environment STC is accustomed to. Maybe this would have been cool if they weren't just shuffling their feet in front of a curtain in a fully lit room. I'm thinking smoke machines and cristaaaaal!

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.
