From the looks of things, the AT&T Performing Arts Center is trying its hand at rock and roll.

On Friday, September 16, Explosions In The Sky will perform the venue's first ever ticketed rock show at the adjacent Annette Strauss Square, an outdoor grassy plaza with about 2,200 seat capacity.

According to the ATPAC's Programming Coordinator Becki Howard, the show will have both seats and space on the lawn. "You can't really have Explosions In The Sky without the sky," she jokes about having the show outdoors. She also said that the ATPAC will have more rock shows in the Strauss Square as well as in the Winspear in the future. In the meantime, you can get presale tickets over at the ATPAC website today, and regular tickets go on sale on Friday.

In other show announcements news, Vanilla Ice will be performing at Trees on Saturday, June 11. Nevermind that his drummer owns the place, he's back for his semi-annual Dallas show, but this time it's all ages, and free if you show up before 9 p.m.

More show announcements after the jump.
