The Best Concerts in Dallas This Week, 8/11 - 8/17

Most of the time, it's pretty lame to say that a weekly concert lineup has "something for everyone." This week, however, it's kind of true. Or, better put, the shows that are happening in and around Dallas over the next seven days really run the gauntlet. There are staunch liberal punks and bigoted conservative classic rock stars. There's hip hop and hardcore. There's even an indie festival and a drool-worthy double bill for '90s alternative fanatics, both happening at the same venue. So if you're looking for extremes in your life, look no further than what comes after the break.
