Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

This week's most notable show announcements come our way via huge corporate sponsorships -- one from Honda Civic, and the other from 7-Eleven.

The former, which features the newly reunited pop-punk forefathers Blink-182 and their minions in My Chemical Romance, will take place at Gexa Energy Pavilion on Tuesday, September 27.

If nothing else, it will be interesting to see what a grown-ass Blink-182 fan looks like, as most of them were tweens during the band's heyday a decade ago. But one can only assume that you're going to need an adult-sized paycheck to afford a good seat. Tickets range from $25 to $69.50, and will be available at Live Nation starting on Friday, June 10 at 10 a.m.

Meanwhile, the people behind the Slurpee bring us a slightly hipper show featuring mash-up artist Girl Talk and Chicago rappers The Cool Kids on Thursday, June 23 at Granada Theater. Girl Talk's parties, which are available to view all over Youtube, are known to be quite the ragers, and to push it over the top, the cost to get in to this show is only $7.11. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 11 a.m. over at the Granada's site.

Hit the jump for a rather long list of other show announcements, too.
