Top Shows Coming to Town for the Week of 3/6/15-3/12/15

Lots of Americana/Country/Southern type stuff going down this week.

1 John Mellencamp @ McFarlin Memorial Auditorium (Dallas) Sat 3/7

One of America’s greatest roots-rockers, Mellencamp sings about the land he loves and does it pretty true to the culture of his subject.

Civil Rights figure and gospel legend Mavis Staples carries on the family legacy and sings the classics.

3 Miranda Lambert @ American Airlines Center (Dallas) Thurs 3/12

Mrs. Blake Shelton definitely has more to her than just being Mrs. Blake Shelton. Quickly becoming a force in the Country music landscape.

4 Alan Jackson w/ Jon Pardi & Ashley Monroe @ Verizon Theatre (Grand Prairie) Fri 3/6

One of Country music’s greatest songwriters, Alan Jackson returns to the stage with some solid up-and-comers.

One of my favorite Texas blues artists. I’ll be seeing her the next day in the Big D.

8 Ryan Bingham/Lucero @ South Side Ballroom (Dallas) Fri 3/6

A strong 1-2 punch of Southern music.

9 Cold War Kids @ House of Blues (Dallas) Fri, 3/6

I’m not super into this indie group from Long Beach (they’re kinda middle of the road for me), but they’re a pretty solid indie rock outfit.

10 Greensky Bluegrass @ Granada Theater (Dallas) Sun 3/8

Michigan Bluegrass band that’s finally starting to draw some of the attention they deserve.

Get out there and enjoy some shows!
