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

Last Thursday I saw a band called MuteMath at The Palladium. Very decent, but in the big picture not quite funky enough or not nearly hard enough for my musical lusting.

While there I was thinking - ya know, like you do - whether I'd like to see them if I was on Death Row. Kinda like a last meal, only a last concert.

Inmate No. 12345678910, this is the last music you will ever hear. You get 10 acts. Place your order ...

10. Linkin Park

9. Basia

8. Fatboy Slim

7. Cake

6. Led Zeppelin

5. Korn

4. The Smiths

3. Pearl Jam

2. Prince

1. Nine Inch Nails

It goes without saying, but your list looks exactly the same. Right?

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.
