If I may direct your attention to DC9 at Night for a moment, Pete's posted quite the present: the title track to Dallas Observer Music Awards fave Sarah Jaffe's forthcoming six-track EP Even Born Again, which the great Robert Jenkins dropped off yesterday. It's your for the taking; don't even need to ask. You'll want more, trust me. And, whilst we're on the musical note, guess I'll go ahead and post the final teaser for the forthcoming New Year record, out -- and I do mean, way out -- September 9. Look, you only think you know Bubba and Matt Kadane. I've listened to the new album, oh, a dozen times thus far -- turns out, you have no idea. --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.
