We're seeing a couple repeat performances/announcements this week. Guess they just can't get enough of Dallas, y'all. Speaking of which, what's the shortest amount of time you've seen a national band play a city and then turned around to come back through and do it again? See you in the comments!
Hanni El Khatib Saturday, October 20, $16/$18 This guy has been everywhere lately, particularly busy touring with The Black Angels, who were both here at The Granada Theater on May 25, and who both made the festival circuit this past spring, where Hanni El Khatib featured his born-to-be-wild garage rock.
97.1 The Eagle Presents: The Battle For BFD: White Elephant, The Roaming Soldiers, Midnight Empire, Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs, The Gypsy Bravado Saturday, July 6, at House of Blues, $10/$12 Now don't get this mixed up with 97.1's BFD concert that they just had in late May with Megadeath and Slash. This one is called "The Battle for BFD" with a lineup of hard rock and punk local acts that will get your blood flowing.
Bonobo Thursday, November 7, at House of Blues, $20/$25 I know! He was just in town not too long ago, but if you missed him the first time, he's still on tour and coming back for more fans of his downtempo electro style.

Lawson Monday, August 12, at House of Blues, $15/$17 Four-piece pretty-boy band Lawson are huge in the UK, where they reside, and they're basically like a modern-day Backstreet Boys, except they play instruments too.
Shooter Jennings & the Triple Crown Friday, September 13, at Granada Theater, $16-$32 Picture Hayes Carll meets Drive-By Truckers and you've got Shooter Jennings & the Triple Crown, who just finished up an album, The Other Life, which is kissed with the vocals of Patty Griffin, and which has an accompanying video documentary counterpart to the new album.
