Ten of This Week's Big Show Announcements: Pink, Neil Hamburger and Tim Heidecker, Unsilent Night and More

Friday, February 22, at American Airlines Center, $39.50

I get the appeal of Britney, Christina and Gaga, but Pink has always been the bad girl of the current run of massive pop singers. Nevertheless, she's carved out a niche for herself, and this show will likely sell out.

The Hood Internet
Sunday, September 30, at Dada, $12/$15

If it weren't for Girl Talk, The Hood Internet would be kings of the mash-up. But while Girl Talk grabs the low hanging fruit of pop music, The Hood Internet takes a rock approach. Check them out at Dada next weekend and be prepared to dance.

Those Darlins added to Bryan Street Tavern's Anniversary Party
Saturday, October 6, at Bryan Street Tavern, Free

We've mentioned this party before, because its free and it's right down the street from our house, but the recent addition of Those Darlins to the bill makes it worth another mention.

Lower Dens
Tuesday, October 16, at Dada, $11/$14

"Lower Dens is coming in October," I exclaimed to the office. "Weren't they just here?" came the response. Well, yes, but this will still be a cool show.

Woods, Widowspeak
Thursday, October 25, at Dada, $11/$13

Folk rock act Woods is remarkably consistent with their releases. And, from what I've heard, the band's live show is equally engaging.

Taj Mahal
Thursday, November 8, at Dallas City Performance Hall

The blues genre has had some heroes in the last half century, but few have stretched the genre the way Taj Mahal has. Head to the Dallas City Performance Hall, which had its grand opening last weekend, and watch him blend the blues with various forms of world music.

VHS or Beta
Thursday, November 15, at The Kessler Theater, Free

It's rare for The Kessler to bring in a show that might actually turn into a wild dance party. They've teamed up with A.V. Club and Killian's Irish Red to bring you this show for free, which is awful nice.

Unsilent Night w/ Steve Aoki
Saturday, December 1, at Centennial Hall at Fair Park, $45

The emo crowd is growing up and expanding their musical tastes beyond angsty teen bands. Now, they like Steve Aoki. Unsilent Night, now in its fifth year, has its biggest lineup ever.

Neil Hamburger, Tim Heidecker
Friday, January 11, at The Texas Theatre

I've never seen someone rage against Hellman's Mayonnaise, Taco Bell and Axe the way Neil Hamburger does on Twitter. Can't wait to see what he says about KFC in person.Tim Heidecker, of Tim & Eric fame, joins him.

Lady Gaga
Tuesday, January 29, at American Airlines Center, $53-$178.50
