Gardens & Villa

Dada : 8:00 p.m. October 21

Gardens & Villa's songs paint pictures with vibrant colors. Mostly focused on a sensory obsessed indie-pop sound, the five-piece dabbles in pure fun over serious art. "Colony Glen" and "Thunder Glove" are danceable synth-pop numbers from their latest record, Dunes. That's a sharp contrast to... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Indie Pop

of Montreal

Trees : 7:00 p.m. October 22

Kevin Barnes gives zero fucks about what you think about his almost two-decades-long project Of Montreal. If he had a dime for every time a critical missive about his work bothered him he'd have zero dimes. Case in point: The final lyric uttered on last year's Lousy with Sylvianbriar is,... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Indie Rock

TTNG (This Town Needs Guns)

Dada : 7:30 p.m. October 23

Don't be fooled by the name. This isn't a grassroots 2nd Amendment movement. TTNG (This Town Needs Guns) is a math rock band from Oxford, United Kingdom. A.k.a. the place with arguably the greatest university in the world. So, it makes sense that the band relishes smart and complex guitar work... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rock

Ziggy Marley

Granada Theater : 7:00 p.m. October 24

Much like Sean Lennon, Ziggy Marley is music royalty. His dad was ridiculously successful at spreading Rastafari around the globe and created some of the greatest music ever recorded. Ziggy Marley has been making music since 1979 when he performed with his siblings and father in the Melody... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Reggae

Lynyrd Skynyrd

WinStar Casino : 9:00 p.m. October 24

Yes, this is rock 'n' roll. The swagger, the riffs, the whole lot of it. But, it's technically pop, as in popular music, as well. You don't generally have this type of longevity in pop, especially when only one original member of the band is still in the band. Lynyrd Skynyrd has had a revolving... More >>

Northeast Dallas Rock

Jason Aldean: 2014 Burn It Down Tour

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:30 p.m. October 25

Bro-country is the scourge of all music. It's the worst thing on the radio. It's the worst thing in the history of all music, and that history includes metal singer Vanilla Ice, Rapper Rodney Dangerfield, Billy Bob Thorton and the “All About That Bass” girl. It has turned one of the... More >>

Fair Park Country

Joey Bada$$

South Side Ballroom : 8:30 p.m. October 25

There's an undeniable thirst for nostalgia that pervades hip hop, a longing for the golden age of the 1990s when so much care was placed on lyrics and funk and jazz and soul samples. It all comes full circle when you take into consideration that the a large piece of the time period in... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Hip-Hop

Texas Rap Festival Featuring Geto Boys, Bun B, Slim Thug, And More

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 1:00 p.m. October 26

Since the 1990s Southern rap has become one of the most influential sub-genres of American hip hop. It was around this era that the chopped and screwed ontology emerged from the Houston scene, creating a new wave of crossfading sounds. But the slowed tempo, skipped beats, record scratching and...

Fair Park Rap


Trees : 7:00 p.m. October 27

Drake is the best rap blogger in the world. The list of artists that he discovered while they were toiling around and killing it in the minors and the ones he recruited as diamonds in the rough is expansive. That list includes: Future, Migos, the Weeknd and most recently Makonnen, Young Thug... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Rap, R&B


Trees : 7:00 p.m. October 28

Calling the Melvins a heavy metal band is a disservice to both the band and the genre. The colossal, droning, earsplitting sludge of doom produced by Buzz Osborne and crew is often referred to as heavy metal simply by default. The Melvins are also a lot weirder and quite a bit more intense than... 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.

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

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 >>
