Somebody's Darling

Trees : 7:00 p.m. August 23

Led by the terrifically talented Amber Farris, Somebody’s Darling are out on tour in support the recently released Adult Roommates. Farris’ Janis Joplin-like vocals have always been the band’s focal point, but Roommates finds the band investigating all sorts of interesting... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rock

One Direction

AT&T Stadium : 7:00 p.m. August 24

After failed attempts at a solo career via the U.K.’s “The X Factor,” judge Simon Cowell decided these five young Brits (actually four; one is Irish) could be bigger and better as a group. And they are. Since One Direction’s inception, young girls -- probably some of... More >>

Arlington Pop

Clint Black

McKinney Performing Arts Center : 8:00 p.m. August 27

Clint Black's long and storied career, complete with 22 No. 1 songs and a plethora of CMA honors, makes him one of the most popular country entertainers of all time. Beyond that, he's also widely regarded as one of Nashville's best songwriters. After hitting it big in 1989 with "Killin' Time,"... More >>

Allen/ McKinney Country

Keb' Mo' with G. Love & Special Sauce

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. August 28

Although he is often described as a blues musician, Kevin Moore -- better known as Keb’ Mo’ -- is far from a purist in the tradition of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. Such a distinction is a good thing as Mo’ has served as a link between those legendary... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Blues

Chimaira, The Plot in You, Upon This Dawning, Allegeaon, Silence the Messenger, Deathstar, Design of Destiny

Trees : 7:00 p.m. August 29

Due to numerous lineup changes over the course of 16 years, vocalist Mark Hunter is the only original member of Cleveland’s Chimaira. Incredibly, the heavy metal band’s sound hasn’t deviated that much from the 2001 debut Pass Out of Existence to last year’s Crown of... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Metal


Dada : 8:00 p.m. August 29

Fun fact about critically acclaimed neo-soul singer Bilal (born Bilal Sayeed Oliver): He was discovered in his teens by none other than the drummer of the Spin Doctors. Did you also know that the band that would become the Spin Doctors was also a side-project for John Popper? Be careful of the... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Soul, R&B

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

Jason Mraz

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

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.... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Pop

3 Doors Down

Choctaw Casino Resort : 8:00 p.m. August 23

For 18 years, 3 Doors Down has been packing out venues with their blend of faux-Nirvana alt-rock that burst into the mainstream in 1999. You can’t begrudge an act for making a career for itself, so instead of slagging away at the band or making them the butt of some joke, pop culture has... More >>

Sherman/ Denison Rock

Black Kids, Chambers, Chinaski, The Fury

Three Links : 8:00 p.m. August 25

They were supposed to be somebodies. In 2007 when music blogs ruled the world (RIP Music Blogs 2005-Whenever Gorilla Vs. Bear dies) Black Kids took the world by storm with their Myspace-released EP The Wizard of Ahhhs, gaining major hype form blogs and traditional media alike, including an 8.4... More >>

Fair Park Indie Pop


Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. August 26

There’s a good chance you’ve found yourself humming along to the hit “Counting Stars” in your car in recent months. That’s because OneRepublic has been pretty much dominating the pop airwaves with that song and their most recent single, “Love Runs Out.”... More >>

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 >>

East Dallas & Lakewood DJ

DJ Blake Ward

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

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

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 >>
