Weekend Roundup: Taylor Swift, Jamie Foxx, Birds of Avalon

Taylor Swift at American Airlines Center on Friday, September 25
Taylor Swift and an arena of teenage girls and their secretly eager dads (hey, T-Swift is legal!) sang along to her ballads about boys, broken hearts, white horses and all that schmoopy stuff Friday night at the AAC. OK, maybe she isn't my favorite, but I'm not alone. More interesting than Swift's acoustic version of "White Horse" is the behind-the-camera conversation here:

Girl #1: "I don't like it."
Girl #2: "Are you kidding me?"

...and, scene!

Jamie Foxx at Grand Prairie's Nokia Theatre on Saturday, September 26
If you need something a bit stronger this morning (say, white wine vs. whiskey), look no further. Terrell native Jamie Foxx brought two nights of booty-shaking to Nokia Theatre in Grand Prairie over the weekend. Who loves you?

Birds of Avalon at The Lounge on Elm Street on Saturday, September 26
Birds of Avalon headlined at The Lounge on Saturday night. The Raleigh, North Carolina,  prog-rock/psychedelic band has toured with The Flaming Lips and Jack White's Raconteurs. Slip on your headphones and turn up the volume for "I Never Knew."
