Preview: KXT's Triple Play at the Kessler
The third installment of KXT's Triple Play series tops itself with this DFW uppercut. People on Vacation, the Dallas duo of Bowling For Soup's Jaret Reddick and Smile Smile's Ryan Hamilton, take to the Kessler stage for their own version of VH1's Storytellers. The two have a natural knack for writing great pop songs, so if you like your music life-affirming and primary-colored, catch them now before they get eaten up by the British on tour next week. Fellow locals Little Black Dress complements with their take on shoegaze, and hopefully they lay down that cover of the Beach Boys' "Don't Worry Baby." Young Denton songwriter Andrew Tinker layers the opening spot with some elegant pop twitch.
