Weekend Roundup: KISS, 311, Aesop Rock, AFI, 30 Seconds to Mars, Telegraph Canyon
KISS at American Airlines Center on Sunday, December 6:
KISS: The only guys I know who wear more makeup than I do. Maybe except for Jared Leto. Oooh, burn!
311 at Nokia Theatre in Grand Prairie on Saturday, December 5:
If John Hughes had ever gotten around to making a movie about my high school years, 311 would be on the soundtrack.
Aesop Rock at the Granada Theater on Saturday, December 5:
Aesop Rock brought his brand of bicoastal hip-hop to the Granada on Saturday night. According to his MySpace page, he's influenced by "people who light shit on fire." Well, this video is dark, but it's not like your ears need to see anything.
AFI and 30 Seconds to Mars at Nokia Theatre in Grand Prairie on Friday , December 4:
Double for your money: AFI is still AFI, and Jared Leto gets up close and personal with the Jordan Catalano-adoring crowd.
Telegraph Canyon at The Loft on Thursday, December 3:
Fort Worth's Telegraph Canyon played a couple of shows in Dallas and Denton over the weekend, starting at The Loft on Thursday night. You'll have another chance to see them on Saturday at Art Conspiracy 5.
