Mission Of Burma, Smith Westerns and The Strongest List of Show Announcements All Year

This week's show announcements are likely the strongest we've seen all year, and, to start it off, we have the legendary post-punk act Mission Of Burma.

The band, which broke up in 1983, has been reunited since 2002, putting out what some say is their most impressive work yet. And, at the Granada Theater on Sunday, June 24, Dallas fans will get a rare opportunity to see the group, along with openers Ume and Tre Orsi. Tickets for the show are on sale now for $19 at the Granada ticket website.

In other show announcements news, the folks over at Spune Productions have been straight killing it lately. With the newly reopened Dada, they have the perfect-sized Dallas venue to host lower-to-middle tier indie acts like Smith Westerns, who will be there on Wednesday, September 14, and Swedish dream-pop act Radio Dept., who will have their first-ever Dallas show at Dada on Friday, November 4.

It looks like the fall season music calendar is really starting to shape up. Check out the rest of this week's impressive announcements after the jump.
