Portugal. The Man, Grouplove, with Starfucker

South Side Music Hall : 7:00 p.m. August 30

I'm 99 percent sure that Portugal. the Man fans have formed some sort of cult around the band's music -- which is not to say “cult favorites,” but a literal cult with ceremonies, traditions, robes and chanting set to fuzzy indie rock. Such is the devotion to the Alaskan group that... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Rock

Travis Tritt

Billy Bob's Texas : 10:30 p.m. August 30

Since the early '90s, Travis Tritt's characteristic long hair and southern-rock vocals have been a common fixture on the airwaves. You probably remember him from "T-R-O-U-B-L-E," the honky tonk hit that made him a country mainstay. In the later years of his career, Tritt earned a reputation as... More >>

Fort Worth Country

Chicago & REO Speedwagon

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:30 p.m. August 31

What’s crazy about the REO Speedwagon’s 1980 hit machine/Trans-Am heavy-petting mood-setter High Infidelity is that the band was nine albums and 13 years into its career when it scored this millions-selling monster. The Beatles may have made more records in a shorter period of time,... More >>

Fair Park Classic Rock

Pickin' for Preemies

Billy Bob's Texas : 3:30 p.m. September 1

One will be hard-pressed to point out an annual benefit show in the past decade that’s been as impactful as the annual Pickin’ for Preemies show has been. This year marks the ninth edition and it will again benefit the Cook Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This... More >>

Fort Worth Country

Juicy J, T$

Trees : 7:00 p.m. September 3

Juicy J won an Academy Award before Martin Scorsese. Why? Because he is perhaps the most talented rapper-producer in the history of Southern hip-hop who's name is not DJ Screw nor a member of UGK. Ever since soloing on the first Three Six Mafia track, “Slob On My Nob,” J has been... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rap, Hip-Hop

Islands, TEEN

Dada : 8:00 p.m. September 4

For better or worse, this is the type of future Zappa saw for pop, a contraption as regressive as it is disarming, music as sour candy. Rising from the ashes of cult act the Unicorns, Islands is in many ways your typical indie pop-rock outfit:melodic, twee, syrupy; one part Cramps, two parts... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Indie Rock

Brad Paisley

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. September 5

Whether it was a publicity stunt or not, Brad Paisley seemed to piss off some record label executives by leaking his album Moonshine in the Trunk track by track. Well, now the album is officially out and all of the leaking must have garnered enough attention to be iTunes' No. 1 country album.... More >>

Fair Park Country

Pinback, Tera Melos

Trees : 7:00 p.m. September 5

'90s indie rockers currently rule the Dallas tour circuit. It seems the never-ending barrage of bands from that era have led to bearded dudes invading every festival and venue in the area to indulge in some needed nostalgia while the kids are with the babysitter. The progressive work of San... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rock

Linkin Park

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 6:30 p.m. September 6

After releasing several albums that experimented with electronic music, Linkin Park’s most recent effort, The Hunting Party, returned the band to its alt-rock sound. Some claimed that returning to rock was both a safe and desperate move, but the results are difficult to debate. With... More >>

Fair Park Rock

Aretha Franklin

The Winspear Opera House : 8:00 p.m. September 6

One of the golden treasures of American music, Aretha Franklin is one of the most important musical artists of the 20th century. Her impact on soul and pop cannot be overstated. At 72, Franklin’s amazing pipes are still capable of belting out such legendary fare as “Respect,”... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Soul

Drake vs. Lil Wayne

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. September 7

We legit considered posting a photo of shocked Drake in the Anaconda video next to a photo of a confused looking Weezy with the word “vs” between them, but that would mean we couldn’t tell you how amazing it is that Drake has progressed like he has. Long the butt of jokes when... More >>

Fair Park Rap

Washed Out, Small Black

Granada Theater : 7:00 p.m. September 8

Last year, Ernest Greene, the soundscape architect behind Washed Out, seemed to have slipped away from the safety of his band's minimalistic chillwave tether. On sophomore relase, Paracosm, he attempted to explore untested waters, pursuing fantasy inspired textures and intricate lyricism,... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Indie Pop, Electronica

J Boog

Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill : 8:00 p.m. September 9

In 2003 J Boog and his bandmates in B2k teamed up with Marques Houston to take on some crosstown rivals in a Los Angeles dance competition for $50000. This was a seminal moment in dance competitions: many a sucker was served in the chaos of it all and J Boog and friends prevailed in the end, ... More >>

Northwest Dallas Rap

Delta Spirit, EDJ

Granada Theater : 8:00 p.m. September 10

After being pigeonholed as an Americana act, the members of Delta Spirit decided to expand their musical horizons and released an incredible self-titled effort in 2012 that redefined the band. Those rootsy influences were still there, but the new and improved sonic palette included several... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Indie Rock

Jason Mraz

The Winspear Opera House : 8:00 p.m. September 2; 8:00 p.m. September 3

Jason Mraz continues his run of pop success with his latest album, Yes! Written with all-female folk group Raining Jane and recorded at home in his avocado ranch in San Diego, it's the perfect counterpart to his earthy summer vibe, clear, old-crooner enunciation and Hallmark-card-lovey lyrics....

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

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


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 >>

East Dallas & Lakewood DJ

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

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

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 >>

DJ Blake Ward

Sundown at Granada : 11:00 p.m. every Tue.

Blake Ward got his start spinning in Oklahoma while attending Oklahoma University.

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

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 >>
