Only a few of us left at the office -- most everyone else is already down at the Granada for tonight's Dallas Observer Music Awards, where doors open at 8 p.m. following the VIP shebang. Pete's got all the details here for those considering the last-minute rally. Me, all I got is a 19-year-old clip from the DOMAs at the Majestic Theater featuring George Gimarc, Liza Richardson and then-Best Act Overall Sara Hickman. Trust me, this isn't from 1989 -- I remember it like it was 17 years ago.
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.
