You say you just can't wait to get your greasy mitts on some of the fine State Fair of Texas fried food? Twelve months is just too long to wait between bouts of funnel cakes and corn dogs?

Pickin' for Preemies

Billy Bob's Texas : 3:30 p.m. September 1

Tuesday Night Trash:Stunt Rock

Texas Theatre : 9:15 p.m. September 2

Some movies are just downright trashy. Not trashy in a sexy, tawdry way but trashy in a why-the-hell-can't-I-turn-this-POS-off way. When the acting is downright awful, the plot absurd and the production quality minimal, the filmmaker may not have a blockbuster, but it might have a late-night... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Film - Events

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 >>

Jewish Film Festival

Studio Movie Grill - Spring Valley : September 4

The Jewish Community Center of Dallas' annual film festival is one of the smaller jewels in the DFW's cinematic crown.

Adam Ball & (FEATURE) Michelle Rawlings

The Goss-Michael Foundation : 6:00 p.m. September 4

With Kenny Goss at the helm, the space has introduced innovative educational and charitable initiatives like... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Art - Openings and Events

Islands, TEEN

Dada : 8:00 p.m. September 4

For better or worse, this is the type of future Zappa saw for pop, a contraption as regressive as it is disarming, music as sour candy. Rising from the ashes of cult act the Unicorns, Islands is in many ways your typical indie pop-rock outfit:melodic, twee, syrupy; one part Cramps, two parts... More >>

Brad Paisley

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. September 5

Whether it was a publicity stunt or not, Brad Paisley seemed to piss off some record label executives by leaking his album Moonshine in the Trunk track by track.

Draped Up & Dripped Out: Party

Oak Cliff Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. September 5

What's that saying about tides and ships? As the arts scene in Texas swells, so does the opportunity for cross-city collaboration.

Pinback, Tera Melos

Trees : 7:00 p.m. September 5

'90s indie rockers currently rule the Dallas tour circuit. It seems the never-ending barrage of bands from that era have led to bearded dudes invading every festival and venue in the area to indulge in some needed nostalgia while the kids are with the babysitter. The progressive work of San... More >>

Nancy Myers

The Sixth Floor Museum : 2:00 p.m. September 6

Having a personal insight into American history is something so few people can really boast. You may have been a part of a historic gathering in your time, but it’s likely nobody will ever ask you about that time you drank your way through the crowds at Cowboy’s Stadium... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum History

Casey Gray: Of Land and Sea

Circuit 12 Contemporary : 6:00 p.m. September 6

In much of Casey Gray's art, there's a humorous tension between message and medium. Imagine if the 17th century Flemish painters had worked in spray paint. Conversely, picture Peter Paul Rubens on a skateboard. See? Funny. This was the crux of much of San Francisco-based Gray's early work, some... More >>

Linkin Park

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 6:30 p.m. September 6

After releasing several albums that experimented with electronic music, Linkin Park’s most recent effort, The Hunting Party, returned the band to its alt-rock sound. Some claimed that returning to rock was both a safe and desperate move, but the results are difficult to debate. With... More >>

Gilbert Gottfried

Hyena's Comedy Club Dallas : 8:00 p.m. September 6

The man with the most distinctive voice in comedy defines the concept of a "comic's comic." Gilbert Gottfried did more than just spend a lifetime doing comedy and spending a season or two on Saturday Night Live. He stuck to his comedy no matter where his career took him through roles in... More >>

Drake vs. Lil Wayne

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. September 7

We legit considered posting a photo of shocked Drake in the Anaconda video next to a photo of a confused looking Weezy with the word “vs” between them, but that would mean we couldn’t tell you how amazing it is that Drake has progressed like he has. Long the butt of jokes when... More >>

Washed Out, Small Black

Granada Theater : 7:00 p.m. September 8

Last year, Ernest Greene, the soundscape architect behind Washed Out, seemed to have slipped away from the safety of his band's minimalistic chillwave tether.

Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill : 8:00 p.m. September 9

In 2003 J Boog and his bandmates in B2k teamed up with Marques Houston to take on some crosstown rivals in a Los Angeles dance competition for $50000.

Delta Spirit, EDJ

Granada Theater : 8:00 p.m. September 10

After being pigeonholed as an Americana act, the members of Delta Spirit decided to expand their musical horizons and released an incredible self-titled effort in 2012 that redefined the band.

Jason Mraz continues his run of pop success with his latest album, Yes!
