Every Thursday, we bring you the ten best shows to see this weekend. Of course, you can find many more via our handy concert calendar.

Lindsey Buckingham
Friday, August 24, at Cendera Center

The Fleetwood Mac guitarist and singer will be playing at Fort Worth's newly opened Cendera Center. This should be a huge show, and according to Spune Productions' website, there are still tickets available.

Jillian Edwards, Caleb
Thursday, August 23, at Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge

Richardson's Jillian Edwards plays another somewhat high profile show, this time at the newly opened Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge, which just underwent a staff overhaul. Fort Worth concert-goers can expect to see more local shows like this one at what people are calling "The Kessler of the West." You'd be smart to catch the Quaker City Night Hawks on Friday, August 24 as well.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit
Friday, August 24, at Hat Tricks

The last time Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit played in town, they lost their van and all of their musical equipment. Let's hope they fare better on this trip.

Dark Side of the Rainbow
Friday, August 24, at Texas Theatre

The original "mash-up." You can't really be sober for this, so plan accordingly.

The Old 97's, Those Darlins, Rhett Miller
Friday, August 24, at House of Blues

This tour marks the 15th anniversary since the release of The Old 97's Too Far To Care. The band will be playing the album in its entirety. Make sure to get there early to catch Those Darlins.

Art Conspiracy Presents RZN8
Saturday, August 25, at Life in Deep Ellum

This is the "seed money" event for Art Conspiracy, so locals Kirby Brown, Home By Hovercraft, Datahowler and Spook Easy will provide the tunes, and Black Swan Saloon wil provide the drinks. Mixmaster all about it wrote about it here.

Deep Shade
Saturday, August 25, at Sandaga 813

At Sandaga 813 this Saturday, DJs Gavin G., Gina G., Chris A., Tony Schwa from Cool Out and Rick Simspon of Down Low Music join forces and provide a dance party heavy on house, techno and more. Get there early (7p.m.) for a record sale. No cover.

Tabula Rasa, The Chemistry Set, Sunward, Salim Nourallah
Saturday, August 25, at Dada

See our preview here.

The Trishas
Saturday, August 25, at Poor David's Pub

Check out our profile here.

Yells At Eels, Nervous Curtains, Blixaboy (full band)
Saturday, August 25, at Bryan Street Tavern

It's rare to see a performance from Wanz Dover's techno act Blixaboy featuring a full band. He says it will be "the most overtly krautrock/shoegaze type show I've done in many years."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
