The freakishly steady snow outside the office, and the absence of a staff inside the office, suggests that perhaps it's time to head on outta here. And so I leave you with this: Polyphonic Spree performing John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" at the Lakewood Theater in '07, during the band's annual Holiday Extravaganza (which, much to the disappointment of many, was put on hold this year). Till tomorrow, then? Be safe, stay warm and best wishes to the Friends of Unfair Park.
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.
