So. I've been looking at Hal Samples' photos from Tuesday night's Dallas Observer Music Awards -- and I must say, that was one beautiful crowd. Especially you, rock star. And you. You too. And you guys -- handsome, stunning. Miss anyone? Oh -- you. Well, hello. And, of course, hello, Andrea. And Mr. Crain. And Mr. and Mrs. Chief. You make a swell couple. --Robert Wilonsky
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.
