Show Announcements: Rhett Miller, Ben Kweller, Spune 2K10 Ice Cream Social, Telegraph Canyon, Dwight Yoakam, Delorean, Helmet, Guided By Voices, Gorillaz, Adam Lambert, Michelle Shocked and more

Rhett Miller's solo career has had its ups and downs, but overall, he's one of the most successful artists to come out of Dallas. His most recent self-titled album is his third solo effort, released last year to mixed reviews. He's still touring in support of it, and he'll be at the Granada Theater on Saturday, November 6. As a bonus, Greenville's own Ben Kweller and hometown boys The O's will  be opening the show. Tickets will be on sale on Friday for $25 and $75 for VIPs over at the Granada's ticket website. All proceeds from the show go to benefit the Breathe Easy Foundation, which supports the fight against cystic fibrosis.

And in more local show announcement news, Spune follows the announcement of its OysterFest at Lochrann's in Frisco, with the announcement of the Spune 2K10 Ice Cream Social at Hailey's Club on Saturday, August 28, featuring this lineup: Telegraph Canyon, Spooky Folk, Monahans, Final Club, Old Snack, Baruch The Scribe, Goldilocks & The Rock and Land Mammals. Tickets are only $5 at the door, and concert goers are encouraged to B.Y.O. ice cream.

A heaping pile of show announcements after the jump.
