The Ten Best Concerts in Dallas This Week, August 1-7

So who's ready for B L A C K I E to scare some people at Good Records today? We certainly can't wait. If you weren't already going (to this one or the show tomorrow at Macaroni Island in Denton), please read the great Shea Serrano's excellent profile of the Houston artist, published in our sister paper there.

If yelling doesn't appeal to you, there's plenty more this week: cult leader Lil B at the Prophet Bar, Courtney Love at House of Blues, a pair of mega-tours at Gexa and so on. Though actually there will probably be yelling at all of this. If you don't like yelling, maybe just go to a library.
