As Pete's taking the day off to recover from the Dallas Observer Music Awards -- and back in my day, we got an hour, tops -- thought I'd sneak this musical note by the goalkeeper. Because -- surprise, surprise -- it's a New Year notice, yet another in advance of the third album due from Matt and Bubba Kadane and the fellers on September 9 from Touch and Go. This is the second of three teasers -- this one, a soothing balm on a scorching morn. A better version's available here; so too are fall tour dates, including the September 18 kick-off at the Granada Theater. --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.
