The Ultimate List of Fourth of July Concerts

USA! USA! USA!
USA! USA! USA!

We've got a theory: Every American holiday is just an excuse for us all to get really, really wasted and gorge ourselves with food. You can also hang out with family, but that obviously comes second. Over here, we like to celebrate with a little bit of live music. Especially the type of music that isn't a "family friendly in the park acoustic thing." For this Fourth of July we put together a list of awesome shows Happening in and around Dallas. Take your pick.
