Show Announcements: Broken Social Scene, P-Diddy, New Kids On The Block, Backstreet Boys, Reverend Horton Heat, Plain White T's, Free Energy, Max Bemis, All Time Low, Avett Brothers, Lynch Mob & more

Fresh off the release of yet another critically acclaimed album Forgiveness Rock Record, Broken Social Scene is planning a North American tour that will pass through Dallas at House Of Blues on Saturday, February 19.

The aptly named band, a revolving door of Canadian indie-rock all stars (Feist, Stars, Metric), is known for its raucous and passionate live performances (read our review of Broken Social Scene's last Dallas performance). And for $23 and $40 at Live Nation, you can find out for yourself.

In other show announcement news, I find it odd that a huge hip-hop superstar like P Diddy is playing a venue as small as the Palladium Ballroom on Sunday, February 6. Shouldn't he be performing at the American Airlines Center, or at least The Verizon Theatre? Well, once you see the price tag for a ticket, it all makes since. For $103 and $153 at the Palladium's ticket website, you can party with the man behind Bad Boy Records at his Super Bowl Grand Finale Party.
