The Seven Best Concerts In Dallas This Week, August 8-14

Whether you're in the mood to bounce around with the shiny, happy people of The Polyphonic Spree, or get your eardrums blasted by The Melvins' dual drummers this week has a little bit of everything for Dallas music fans. Saturday is especially packed with options for your ear holes: Denton indie rock sweethearts The New Science Projects will bring a little bit of the little D to Oak Cliff, and Austin country guitar favorite, Monte Montgomery will bring the good ol' boys out to Granada.

Maybe you feel like something a little different, a little fun in the sun perhaps? The Design District Market this Saturday not only has a great live music lineup, but a luxurious dumpster pool for you to clock in as much more time in your swim suit as Summer 2013 will allow. So give Netflix a break this weekend (Orange Is The New Black is not going anywhere Ed. You haven't finished OITNB yet?) and get out there, there's plenty of good shows to be seen.
