The Best Concerts In Dallas This Week, 5/11-5/17

This week, the American Airlines Center earns the distinction of hosting what we might all consider one of the strangest bills to ever go on a nationwide tour: New Kids on the Block, TLC and Nelly. They Might Be Giants play at the Granada Theater, DFA's Holy Ghost! plays at DJ set at It'll Do, Dave Matthews Band gets down with their chill bros at Gexa and Alabama does casino thing up north. Which is to say, the concert schedule in Dallas is all over the place this week, but that just means things should get pretty entertaining.
