Jill Scott, Handsome Furs, The Go-Go's, Ted Nugent and The Rest of Your Weekend Plans

Jill Scott won't keep this handsome fur long at Gexa Energy Pavilion
Jill Scott won't keep this handsome fur long at Gexa Energy Pavilion

There are some pretty solid shows this weekend, both local and national, but the biggest one comes to us by way of neo-soul star Jill Scott, who will headline the Budweiser Superfest at Gexa Energy Pavilion on Saturday night. Also on the bill? Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Doug E. Fresh.

If sweating it out at Gexa doesn't sound like your bag, there are plenty of other good options for you this weekend, starting with the shows we've already mentioned.

Tonight, Sundress will release their new record at Hailey's Club with the help of Holy Fiction, The Black and White Years, New York City Queens, and Ethereal and the Queer Show, and, over at Lola's Saloon in Fort Worth, The Burning Hotels will celebrate the release of their new record.

On Saturday night, Handsome Furs will be at Dada with support from Austin's Sunset, and Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump will be at House Of Blues' Cambridge Room. Also, singer-songwriter Lee MacDougall will perform at Poor David's Pub.

Upcoming Events

And, on Sunday, Identity Festival will bring Steve Aoki and some of the world's best DJs to Gexa Energy Pavilion. Oh, and don't forget another installment of R + R on Sunday at Rio Room with Play-N-Skillz.

Hit the jump for the rest of your weekend.

The Go-Go's
Friday, August 26, at House Of Blues

Tonight, House Of Blues offers a chance to catch one of the stalwart acts of the '80s. The odds are good that they'll play all the hits, and, seeing as they haven't had one since the '80s, those songs will be recognizable. In fact, it seems that since their last studio album, in 2001, they've made a living recycling old memories for concert goers. One question remains, though: Do they still got the beat?

Bob Schneider
Friday, August 26, at The Kessler Theater

What are the odds that we'll get a press release on Saturday announcing another Bob Schneider show in Dallas next month? High.

Yells At Eels, The Frode Gjerstad Trio
Friday, August 26, at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios

Aside from making totally out-of-left-field avant jazz, Yells At Eels are really good at making friends too. They're known for bringing international acts in from all over the world to join them on local bills and to collaborate with in the studio. Tonight, the Oak Cliff boys will be joined by The Frode Gjerstad Trio, who Yells At Eels bassist Aaron Gonzales refers to as "avant garde jazz masters."

Deadman, Homespun Remedies, The Electro-Magnetics
Saturday, August 27, at The Kessler Theater

Longtime Dallas based alt-country act Deadman have had their ups and downs over the last decade or so. But, at tomorrow's show at The Kessler Theater, they will most certainly be riding high after just completing a two week tour of Scandinavia with Roky Erikson and Richard Thompson.

Ted Nugent
Saturday, August 27, at Billy Bob's Texas

Which Nuge do you like better, spandex leotard Nuge or camouflage gas-station sunglasses Nuge?

DJ Whookid
Saturday, August 27, at Centre and Rio Room

It's not everyday that 50 Cent's DJ comes to perform in Dallas. But on Saturday, he'll spin at a pretty odd location: Centre, the sneaker and urban wear store in Mockingbird Station. If you simply can't bear the thought of listening to a hip-hop DJ without bottle service, he'll also be at Rio Room later that night.

Keith Urban
Sunday, August 28, at American Airlines Center

This Aussie's about as pop country as you can get these days. But, if you're into that sort of thing, we hear he puts on a good show.

Riverboat Gamblers, Off With Their Heads, Dead To Me
Sunday, August 28, at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios

This show at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios on Sunday night will be a homecoming of sorts for Austin-dwelling punk act Riverboat Gamblers. And, seeing as the Rubber Gloves capacity is 200 tops, this show will certainly be a hot mess.

... and that's it for us. Please leave anything we left out in the comments. We hope you have a good weekend and we'll see you back here on Monday.
