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

Whilst cleaning out his closet, local photog Denny Doran stumbled across some never-before-developed snaps of the Dallas rock scene circa the mid- to late 1990s -- which, natch, is right in my wheelhouse. Doran gave them to our old pal Jeff Liles for his A History of Dallas Music site, Jeff forwarded some along to Observer music editor Pete Freedman -- and, voila, here's your Friday-afternoon slideshow, thank you very much. And, of course, I went with the Funland photo here -- maybe because this oldie-but-goodie came up during an iPod shuffle only yesterday, and it made me awfully happy. --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.
