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

Used to be it was Garrison Keillor whistlin' Dixie Chicks (the original, Sweethearts of the Rodeo version) on A Prairie Home Companion; thank God those days are over. On Saturday, National Public Radio's live-music series will feature Friday Night Lights favorites Explosions in the Sky, with Dallas' The Paper Chase opening the set. Catch it live, from Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club, at 7:30 p.m. right here -- or just find it later over here. We'll have to catch the reruns, since at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, we will most likely be face-down on the cement in downtown Austin, lying in a pool of our own sick. --Jonanna Widner

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.
