Smackdown Karaoke

Double-Wide : 10:00 p.m. November 27

This is Thanksgiving and the day of the year when the feelings towards your family take sudden hard rights, making you question if you’re truly related to these people only seconds after being so thankful you have them in your life. (Most other days it’s probably just the first of... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Karaoke

FKA Twigs

Trees : 7:00 p.m. November 28

Whether you think she's the next art-pop game-changer or simply a trip-hop vestige, FKA Twigs is one of the most-discussed artists of the year. Twigs followed 2013's breakout EP2 with the proper full-length LP1 earlier this year, and it's streaked with all the aesthetic indulgences and... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum R&B

Hunter Hayes

Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie : 6:00 p.m. November 29

Hunter Hayes is a young and blonde country music star who plays an acoustic guitar. Basically, the dude version of Taylor Swift before she “went pop.” His crowning achievement at the moment might be a crown over at The Guinness Book of World Records for playing multiple concerts in... More >>

Grand Prairie Country

Devin The Dude

Granada Theater : 8:00 p.m. November 29

Devin the Dude is somewhat of a stoner rap pioneer. The Houston-based MC has given us the depressing jam from the heavens of Stonerville, “Doobie Ashtray,” which was produced by the one and only DJ Premier. He’s also responsible for the brilliant collab with Snoop Dogg (eh)... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Rap

106.1 KISS FM's Jingle Ball

Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie : 3:30 p.m. November 30

Jay Z once immortally declared, “Got beef with radio if I don't play the show/They don't play my hits, well I don't give a shit, so.” Unlike the Jigga Man, all the artists appearing at the Verizon Theatre for Kiss FM's Jingle Ball give a shit if radio plays their hits, because they... More >>

Grand Prairie Festival


House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. December 1

Since his debut in 1992, ‘Chi-Town God’ Common has been one of the most prominent voices in conscious hip-hop. Nobody’s Smiling, his tenth studio album which dropped this summer, continues the legacy, with a heavy focus on the violence and crime in Chicago. The No... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rap

Centro-Matic Farewell Tour

The Kessler Theater : 7:00 p.m. December 2

Say it ain't so, Centro-matic! After recording and touring at a ferocious pace for two decades, one of the best and most prolific bands in Texas will call it quits before the end of the year. The final shows will naturally be in Denton at Dan's Silverleaf later in December, but this is... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Rock

Justin Timberlake

American Airlines Center : 8:00 p.m. December 3

Is there any debate about who the reigning king of pop is? After conquering pop music (and really pop culture at large) in 2006 with his breakthrough album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, Justin Timberlake has been on top of the world. Timberlake has entered a rare stratosphere that artists would kill... More >>

Uptown & Oak Lawn Pop

Blue October

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. November 28; 8:00 p.m. November 29

Alternative rock band Blue October is a big deal, such a big deal that they'll play two shows at the House of Blues this week. The band began their career in Houston in the mid ‘90s. After their independently released debut album, The Answers, was released in 1998 they caught the eye of... More >>

Andy's Basement Bar & Grill : 9:00 p.m. every Thu.

Each week at Andy's Bar, Denton Dance Collective and DJ SpaceChase host Subsonic Indulgence, a bill of local artists, DJs and electronic musicians who play enough electronic, techno, dance and hip-hop to get your body rockin'.

East Dallas & Lakewood DJ

George Quartz' For Your Pleasure

Double-Wide : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

When he finally "came to," he was an unrelenting force, immediately knocking over his cup of water, and living up to his glamorous-yet-cracked-out George Quartz persona, the same one that headed up his previous Dallas-based ensemble, After Hours with George Quartz. In a light grey suit, smeared... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum DJ

Big Gus & The Swampadelic

The Free Man : 7:00 p.m. every Mon.

In 2011, the Dallas Observer awarded "Big Gus" Samuelson the trophy for Best DJ. Samuelson does have an impeccable ear for great tunes and his low, Southern Barry White-ish speaking voice helps him excel in that realm on KHYI-FM 95.3. For years now, however, he has fronted one hell of a band,... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Jazz

Matt Tolentino

The Bavarian Grill : 8:00 p.m. every Thu.

At age 8, Matt Tolentino, a kid in East Dallas, became enchanted by the great Adrian Rollini, an early 20th century jazz instrumentalist best known for his bass sax in the speakeasy era just before the advent of big band swing music. Lucky for Dallas, Tolentino never came out from under... More >>

Plano Jazz, Folk

Big Mike's Box of Rock

Lola's Saloon : 9:00 p.m. every Tue.

I know what you're thinking. I'm not too terribly keen on cover bands either, but Big Mike's Box of Rock delivers. The group recently started a new residency at Lola's Saloon each Tuesday and it covers the best rock 'n' roll songs from 1960 to 1999. Rock musician and guitar-shredder "Big" Mike... More >>

Fort Worth Rock, Covers, Classic Rock

The Church

Lizard Lounge : 9:00 p.m. every Sun.

There's church, and then there's The Church. Can you spot the difference? Both take place on Sunday and both rely on camaraderie. But at one, people sport leather-bound Bibles, while at the other people sport leather-bound booties. The latter takes place at the Lizard Lounge every Sunday and... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Rock, Industrial, Gothic, DJ

Diamond Cut, Big J.

Ten Bells Tavern : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.

Ten Bells Tavern may be the perfect neighborhood pub. They pour solid pints of beer, serve great bar food and have an unassuming patio where you can drink to the setting sun. You can get Buffalo wings anywhere, and they will likely come with processed blue cheese and pale celery. Here the dip... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Hip-Hop, DJ

Paul Slavens and Friends

Dan's Silverleaf : 10:00 p.m. every Mon.

You really have to hand it to KKXT-91.7 FM. Even if its playlists are pretty random, the station, with its tag line "music to the core," is a refreshing entity amid the national corporate-helmed options cluttering your FM dial. Never is the KERA sister station and NPR affiliate's free-form... More >>

Denton Improvisational

Soundwaves at Sunset

Sunset Lounge : 8:00 p.m. every Tue.

You may recognize -topic as a strong Dallas emcee, and Simon Phoenix as an equally talented local spoken word poet. Tuesdays at Sunset Lounge, however, the play the role of DJ for a new weekly party. More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood DJ

RC & the Gritz, DJ Jay Clipp

The Prophet Bar : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.

If Bad Ass Jazz Nights are my favorite concert t-shirt, then the Wednesday Night Jam Session at The Prophet Bar is an all-out security blanket. Every week, R.C. Williams and The Gritz Band lead a productive evening of jazz, funk and hip-hop built for special drop-in guests, though they aren't... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rock, Jam Sessions


Beauty Bar : 9:00 p.m. every Sat.

Blake Ward got his start spinning in Oklahoma while attending Oklahoma University. But he made the trip down to Dallas to play gigs so frequently, that, before long, he started being recognized as both an Oklahoma and a Dallas DJ. Really: Ward even played this past year's State Fair of Texas,... More >>
