So, since I said I would discuss the DFW music scene, I figured Friday would be a good day to schedule a “Shows coming to town” weekly blog. So here are my top 5 shows coming to DFW for the week of Jan 3, 2014-Jan 9, 2014
5 Lower Class Brats, Youth Brigade, Pinata Protest @ Three Links 1/3/14
A punk rock party. Those are usually fun.
4 Murder City Devils, Dead Flowers @ Trees 1/4/14
Seattle garage punk band has had a long career and has played alongside such acts as At the Drive-in, Pearl Jam and Built to Spill.
3 Nelo @ Granada 1/7/14
Austin alt-rock band does the Austin alt-rock thing
2 Cate Le Bon, Kevin Morby, Bryce Gilbertson @ Three Links 1/7/14
Apparently, for this round, bluesy indie rock trumps “hauntingly beautiful female vocals” (a phrase that will probably become a cliche to this blog, because I love them), this Welsh singer/songwriter is trying to climb out of cult status and into a stronger place in the indieverse w/ her latest album “Mug Museum”
1 Royal Bangs w/ Bad Suns @ Club DaDa 1/9/14
An indie-rock band from Knoxville, TN, their most recent album “Brass” got mixed reviews, but was produced by Patrick Carney of the Black Keys, so they’ve got fans in the right places.
