Denton's Peopleodian cover the Lips' "Bad Kids" here.

Stalley, Kirby Dominant, Playdough, Tycity
Saturday, August 18, at Trees, $20/$30

This show, brought to you by Parade of Flesh, will see Ohio rapper Stalley at Trees on Saturday, August 18. The devout Muslim emcee recently took to Twitter to complain about the woes of being a lesser known, underrated rapper.

Lindsey Buckingham
Friday, August 24, at Cendera Center, $35-$75

A hat-tip to local bookers Spune for routing the Fleetwood Mac guitarist through Fort Worth.

The Tallest Man on Earth
Wednesday, August 29, at House of Blues, $20

I've never given much time to The Tallest Man on Earth until I received a copy of his most recent album, There's No Leaving Now. Since then, I haven't been able to remove it from my player. Heavy on Dylan inspiration, it's clear Kristian Matsson, the Swedish man behind the moniker, is a top-notch songwriter. What's more impressive is that he's done it in a second language. 

Fiona Apple
Saturday, September 22, at Winstar World Casino, $52.05-$73.65

Technically, this show shouldn't apply to our announcement, but this might be your only chance to see Fiona Apple fresh off the release of her new album, The Idler Wheel... .

David Byrne and St. Vincent
Sunday, October 7, at McFarlin Auditorium

We were so excited about this show, Audra wrote about it last week.

Jackson Browne
Sunday, November 4, at Verizon Theatre, $45-$69.50

One of rock's great songwriters, Jackson Browne, will be at the Verizon Theatre, armed with only an acoustic guitar. Good songs can be stripped down to their basic form and still stand up well, which Browne proves.

Wednesday, November 28, at Kay Yeager Coliseum, $41.50-$44.50

Much ado has already been made of this bizarre booking for Moz in Wichita Falls. Why he would choose to skip the metroplex to play a show in the smallish town to the Northwest is anyone's guess.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
