Kopecky Family Band

Dada : 7:30 p.m. September 16

At first glance you might assume that indie rockers Kopecky Family Band are something like a real life version of The Partridge Family. What we have on our hands is not an instance of a bloodline that's so musically inclined they decided to throw together a band. Other than the lead singer,... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Indie Rock

Drive By Truckers, Lucero

South Side Music Hall : 7:00 p.m. September 18

It doesn’t require a terribly passionate argument to suggest that Athens, Georgia-based Drive by Truckers are perhaps the greatest of all touring Southern rock groups on the road these days. The group, led by native Alabamans Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, have been soaking the U.S.... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Alt-Country

Conor Oberst

Annette Strauss Artist Square : 8:00 p.m. September 21

If you're under the age of 35, there's about a 70 percent chance you once had sex to a Conor Oberst song. The prolific Omaha native has had roughly 30 different projects, including Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk, Commander Venus, Desapercidos, Park Ave., the Magentas and the Faint. (Whew!)... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Singer-Songwriter, Indie Pop

Sham 69, Total Chaos, The Broadsiders

Three Links : 8:00 p.m. September 24

Sham 69 is among those legendary first-wave punk bands that were especially influential in the early hardcore movement. The band got its start in the late '70s and got big with hits like "If the Kids are United" and "Borstal Breakout." They still maintain a huge following in the punk world... More >>

Fair Park Punk

The Growlers, The Garden

Dada : 7:30 p.m. September 25

As rough and tough as we all may be when we’re growing up and earning our stripes, there comes a time when the smartest of us decide to clean up a little bit. Do-it-yourself garage rock sprinkled with reverb (which is essentially an excuse for a little more noise) is a blissful little... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Indie Rock

Allen Stone

Granada Theater : 7:00 p.m. September 30

Like most soul singers, Allen Stone began in the church (the son of a preacher man), singing for the Lord. Amen. Over time, he got introduced to the likes of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers. Again, like most soul singers, it would only be a matter of time before... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Soul


Three Links : 9:00 p.m. September 20

Hard to believe it, but Sebadoh is almost 30 years old. Yes, these pioneers of lo-fi indie rock from Massachusetts started all the way back in 1986 when Lou Barlow (before he had even left Dinosaur Jr.) co-founded the group with Eric Gaffney. Jason Loewenstein joined in 1989 and these three... More >>

Fair Park Indie Rock, Indie Pop

The O'Jays and Brian McKnight

Choctaw Casino Resort : 6:00 p.m. September 27

The O’Jays were formed way back in 1958 in a high school in Canton, Ohio. So naturally a casino in Oklahoma will have yet another legendary act you didn’t have a clue still tours pop into town. Accolades for the soul and R&B group run deep: Seven of their studio albums have placed... More >>

Sherman/ Denison Soul
More Events

Prom Date, Brave Young Lion, Birds of Night

Hailey's Club : 9:00 p.m. September 17

When it comes to taste in music, we go through a certain stage--all of us. At one point, we're under this assumption that the 1980s was filled to the brim with shitty, shitty music. Save for Michael Jackson or Prince, we think the decade was ten years of lackluster music. There are those of us... More >>

Denton Pop

DJ SpaceChase

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'. The all-original music is accompanied by live painting by Beth... More >>

DJ Yeahdef

The Crown & Harp : 9:00 p.m. first Fri. of every month

If you've been following DJ Yeahdef's music career for the past several years, you know exactly what you're in for this Friday at Crown & Harp, where he will kick off his brand new residency. Yeahdef will start his new "Wave Back" residency on the first Friday of the month, beginning this... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood 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

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

Y2K with Yeahdef

Hailey's Club : 9:00 p.m. every other week Thu.

For the past five years, DJ Joey Lichtey has been spinning some of the best weeklies and most poppin' house shows in DFW. If you're looking for the party, look no further than wherever Yeahdef is spinning. More >>

Denton 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

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

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 >>

Denton Improvisational

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 >>
