Obviously, we're really excited about NX35 this weekend, in case you couldn't tell. But there are other shows going on too. First, there are the shows we've already mentioned. On Saturday, celebrate the Greatest Holiday Of Them All at the Dallas Observer's St. Patrick's Day Parade Afterparty at Energy Square (that's what all the cool kids call the corner of Greenville Avenue and University Boulevard, right?). Later that day, there's a Ra Ra Riot going on with Tokyo Police Club at The Granada. M. Ward will perform Sunday at the Dallas Museum of Art. Sunday also brings Adele to The Granada, though you'll have to consult a
scalper broker to get into that sold-out show.
Here are a few other options, after the jump. Sorry it's scanty this week. Please add your suggestions in the comments.
Devin The Dude, Uzoy, Stick-Up Kids, Sober
Friday, March 13, at The Lounge on Elm Street
I recommend this show for any hip-hop fan unless you'll be taking a drug test anytime soon. If it's anything like the last time he came to town, the second-hand smoke is going to be thick.
Friday, March 13, at The Granada Theater
In case you weren't able to catch him at Dan's last night, the fantastic singer-songwriter is in Dallas tonight. Of course, he plays in town just about every weekend, so that's not really news.
Sounds Under Radio, Jack With One Eye, Tang Lung, H...N
Friday, March 13, at The Cavern
No need to stick around for the headliner, but Night & Day editor Merritt Martin loves Jack With One Eye's recent The Bad Sleep Well. I'm interested in H...N (pronounced "HellipsesN" or "H Dot Dot Dot N"), which is the least Google-able band name ever. I understand it's a two-guitar experimental, instrumental combo,
but the guys don't have
any music posted on the Internet anywhere that I can find.
The Game, Clyde Carson, Nipsy Hussle
Saturday, March 14, at House of Blues
"Hate It Or Love It" was a great single, but I can't say I had enough interest to keep tabs on him after that. According to Pete Freedman, last year's LAX absolutely sucks, so I guess I'm not missing much.
