Everybody loves lists, and lots of people like going out to see shows, so if you love lists and love going out to see shows, here’s a list of shows you might like to go out to. 🙂
1 Billy Joel (American Airlines Center, Dallas)
The Piano Man is the obvious number 1 this week.
2 Have a Heart Benefit for John feat. Beach Fossils, the Outfit, TX, Appleseed Cast, Matthew and the Arrogant Sea, Son of Stan, Telegraph Canyon, Beach Fossils, Dead Mockingbirds, Leon Bridges, Ronnie Heart, and Madison King (Trees, Dallas)
It’s for a good cause, it’s affordable, has a few solid National acts, but most of all, it features 2 of my absolute favorite D/FW acts, Telegraph Canyon and Leon Bridges. Get out there.
3 Eric Johnson and Mike Stern (Granada Theater, Dallas)
the G3 and Blood, Sweat and Tears guitarists unite for their “Electric Guitar Tour” and proceed to melt your face off.
4 John Mulaney (Majestic Theatre, Dallas)
An up and coming comedian, former SNL writer, and now star of the sitcom “Mulaney”, John’s a pretty funny guy.
5 the Dirty River Boys (Granada Theater, Dallas)
I saw this El Paso band recently at a festival, and they put on a rollickin’ good show. Get out there and support them, because “TEXAS”
6 Russell Peters (Verizon Theatre, Grand Prairie)
John’s so funny, I put him ahead of the world’s 2nd funniest comedian of Indian descent and judge on Last Comic Standing, Russell Peters, but I mean, I guess he’s kinda funny too.
7 Travis Tritt (Eisemann Center for Performing Arts, Richardson)
This show spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E (Sorry, couldn’t resist)
8 “Bricks in the Wall” the Sight and Sound of Pink Floyd (House of Blues, Dallas)
It’s cover band weekend at HOB, and David Gilmour hasn’t announced US Tour dates to go with his 2015 album (or the recent Pink Floyd album) yet, so I guess this’ll work for now.
9 Led Zeppelin 2 (House of Blues, Dallas)
Did I mention it’s cover band weekend at HOB? Jason Bonham’s not in town, so I guess this one’s just gonna have to do as well.
10 Bahamas (Kessler Theatre, Oak Cliff)
Canadian guitarist plays an intimate show at one of my favorite D/FW venues
Anyways, have fun out there, and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do!
