Ben Kweller

Granada Theater : 8:00 p.m. August 1

Ben Kweller has a long and storied past in North Texas. As one of the founding members of Radish, a Greenville band that sat just on the cusp of buzz­band status before fading into oblivion, Kweller and his bandmates did plenty of rocking around Dallas and greater North Texas. As a solo... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Indie Rock

Ray LaMontagne, Belle Brigade

Music Hall at Fair Park : 7:30 p.m. August 2

Although he’s often compared to such heavyweights as Otis Redding and Van Morrison, singer- songwriter Ray LaMontagne is much more akin to folks like Steven Stills and Tim Buckley. Such a distinction is crucial. Where Redding and Morrison made transcendent music that crossed genre lines... More >>

Fair Park Folk

Da Mafia 6ix The Outfit, TX, TUNK., Word Life

Dada : 8:00 p.m. August 2

It’s been an eventful year for the former members of prescient hip­hop crew Three 6 Mafia. Juicy J made it big with the dance­hop album Stay Trippy. Co­founder Lord Infamous passed away with a heart attack. And, triumphantly, DJ Paul reunited most of the group, renamed them... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rap, Hip-Hop

Sarah McLachlan

The Winspear Opera House : 8:00 p.m. August 3

Listen, you're going to see Sarah McLachan at the Winspear Opera House because you love puppies, '90s movies with Nicholas Cage, the Cinder Calhoun character from Weekend Update, and the 2010 Winter Olympics. All joking aside, McLachlan is a 26­-year veteran of the music business and has... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Singer-Songwriter


Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie : 8:00 p.m. August 6

Here's what I want to know about people who hate Yes: Is it because you don't like the music, or is it because the band replaced, Steel Dragon's style, singer and founding member Jon Anderson with the singer of a Yes tribute band? If you hate Yes for the latter reason, does it bother you even... More >>

Grand Prairie Rock

Tim McGraw, with With Kip Moore and Cassandra Pope

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. August 8

In 2009 Tim McGraw received a feature write up titled “The Redemption of Tim McGraw;” at the rate he’s going with his current legal issues and fan-slapping furor we should be getting a similar puff piece on the artist in about 3 years. Granted, this is to be expected. America... More >>

Fair Park Rock, Country

Devin the Dude, with Stone of G-Squad, J Spoolz, High Rollaz and Sevon

Trees : 8:00 p.m. August 8

With an indolently conversational flow and a pedigree that came up under the auspices of DJ Screw, Florida-born, Houston-bred Devin the Dude slings meandering weed-and-pussy-centric slice-of-life tales that unwind like the plots of some alternate universe Seinfeld, where Jerry (in this case... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rap

Loretta Lynn

Bass Performance Hall : 7:30 p.m. August 9

With a name like Loretta Lynn, which begs to be spoken with an accent, and a birthplace such as Butcher Hollow (in Kentucky), it's no wonder the "Coal Miner's Daughter" became the Queen of Country Music. Classic and controversial songs such as "The Pill" and "Dear Uncle Sam" painted a... More >>

Fort Worth Country

Ten Hands

The Kessler Theater : 8:30 p.m. August 9

Seeing that Ten Hands’s reunion gig back in January was such a complete success, it’s no wonder that the band is playing again this Saturday. Actually, it’s kind of odd that Paul Slavens and crew have waited so long. The positive response and talk of a new album have put a... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Rock

The Both, with Lemura

The Kessler Theater : 8:00 p.m. August 12

It isn't often that bands whose names start as a hashtag turn out to be really great, but the Both (originally named #BOTH) is the best kind of exception to that rule. You'll probably remember Aimee Mann from her Grammy-nominated soundtrack for Paul Thomas Andersen's Magnolia and Ted Leo from... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Indie Rock

Midnight Masses, with the Chloes and Frauen

Three Links : 8:00 p.m. August 13

Midnight Masses, a side project stemming from Austin’s beloved ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, began as a conglomerate of creative minds contributing to Autry Fulbright’s more personal vision. Alongside fellow Trail of Dead band mate Jason Reece, a parenthetical side... 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

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 >>
