This weekend, Dallas benefits heavily from the Austin City Limits Music Festival spillover effect, which has some of the best bands in the world looking for a place to play in and around town. There are a whole bunch of these shows, as well as a few others, making this weekend an especially busy one. Let's take a look at what's coming, starting with the ones we've already mentioned this week.
Tonight, TV On The Radio will perform at House Of Blues with the help of another indie superpower, Broken Social Scene, who have announced a forthcoming hiatus, and at Billy Bob's Texas, Hayes Carll will do his brand of country. Also: Explosions In The Sky and Twin Sister will perform outdoors at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, and Carolina Chocolate Drops, and Fox & The Bird will be over at Granada Theater. Oh yeah, and don't forget about Hank Williams III at Trees.
On Saturday night, Okkervil River and Wye Oak will put on what is sure to be a solid show at Granada Theater, and Deadmau5 will be over at Palladium Ballroom. Also, Ha Ha Tonka will be at La Grange along with Somebody's Darling.
That's not all. Hit the jump for more of this weekend's shows.
Saturday, September 17, at Life In Deep Ellum
Fort Worth pop-rock act Green River Ordinance will be taking part in a nationwide charity event that will take place in five different cities. Each show will benefit a different charity, and the one chosen for the Dallas show is La Reunion TX, a non-profit that basically helps out local artists.
