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

Noticed on our music blog yesterday that the Old 97's have a new Christmas song available for purchase on the iTunes. As I am currently saving all my shekels for the Hanukkah -- and, admittedly, a little afraid of any song in which Rhett Miller sings the word "suckled" right out of the gate -- I am recommending you try before you buy. The song's currently streaming on the band's Web site; just launch the player, and cuddle up with "Here It Is Christmas Time," which is actually kind of ... lovely. All Rhett wants is you for Christmas, dig? --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.
