If you like a Santa Rampage or a Santa Ride, don't forgot: You'll love an Unsilent Night, which makes its downtown Dallas bow tomorrow night. The NYC and SF events, among others, took place over the weekend; for those wondering what's in store, some highlights. Also, after the jump, a preview of tomorrow night's event, which is scheduled to commence at 7 p.m. at the Backbeat Cafe and Listening Room at 300 N. Akard Street, along with some tips.

And, of course, there's now a Facebook page devoted to Unsilent Night Dallas, boasting 697 fans -- most of whom have no doubt downloaded their Dallas-specific soundtrack but are still in need of boomboxes and flashlight-bearers. Should be unseasonably warm (with a chance of rain) before the Christmas Eve cold front, so no excuses.

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.
