The 18 Best Show Announcements of the Week

From local to national offerings, it's been a pretty good week for show announcements. Fort Worth Music Festival has put up an impressive first wave of featured acts, proving that the weekend will be sure to have a little something for everyone. 90's rock/rap hybrid 311 will also hit the road this Summer to support their first album in three years. The news of Trans Am and New Fumes playing Deep Ellum together also got Dallas music fans excited for the coming summer. It's time to start pulling concert ticket money from your piggy banks, people.
