Zac Brown Band

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. October 3

In a radio interview last year, Zac Brown really hurt Luke Bryan’s feelings by calling “That’s My Kind of Night” the worst song he’s ever heard. Brown was probably just being honest, and of course it is the worst song many people have ever heard, but you have to... More >>

Burton Burlesque

Lakewood Theater : 8:00 p.m. October 3

When presented with the theme of Viva Dallas Burlesque’s upcoming showcase, Burton Burlesque, a friend pointed out that unlike the normal expectations of burlesque, this one could actually be fabulously, awkwardly un-erotic.

Lecrae

Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie : 6:00 p.m. October 4

Jumbo shrimp. Living dead. Christian hip hop. These are all oxymorons. The former two are just things that happen to be the opposite of one another, antonyms. But, Christian hip hop, that's a true curve ball. Hip hop is generally a secular genre of music (a thoroughly seculrar one, at that).... More >>

Advanced Style

Texas Theatre : 7:00 p.m. October 4

Chanel. Yves Saint Laurent. Commes des Garçons. We generally associate these designers with young, cool fashionistas. But that’s a mistake. The women who really rock these designers’ looks are the women I dream about becoming. In Advanced Style, street style photographer Ari... More >>

The landscape of R&B has changed a great deal over the past few years. The usual run of the mill silliness and subtleties has evaporated. Mainstream R&B is as brash and confident as it wants to be.

Snowmine, Nightbox

Three Links : 8:00 p.m. October 5

If you want to get something done, sometimes it's best to build it yourself. That's want the Brooklyn-based band Snowmine did when they readied the release of their album, Dialects.

Do Words Kill?

The Dallas Holocaust Musuem and Center for Education and Tolerance : 7:00 p.m. October 7

The term "hate speech" gets thrown around a lot by politicians who confuse constructive criticism of their attitudes and opinions with an incitement to riot with literal torches and pitchforks. There is, however, a line that people can actually cross and incite a wave of violence and the Dallas... More >>

The Preatures

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. October 7

Hailing from Australia, The Preatures are a hell of a fun band. Their groovy songs are enough to force Ebenezer Scrooge himself to get up and dance with a smile on his face. Though that would be a scene of high flattery, look no further than The Preatures' five album record deal with Mercury... More >>

Maybe Great Britain doesn’t strike you as a bastion of modern design—after all, it’s a nation associated with a certain primness, plus super stodgy dinnerware and post-apocalyptic public housing. But really, since the 1960s, jolly old England has churned out some of the most... More >>
