Wow, this is a week full of indie goodness in the metroplex. I’ve got 15 pretty good shows on my list, and that’s not even really getting into all the country stuff, related to the ACM Awards coming to town.
1 Father John Misty @ Granada Theater (Lower Greenville) Weds 4/22/15
One of my favorite live performers, Josh Tillman comes to town in support of one of the top albums of the year. If you haven’t seen him before, he’s definitely worth checking out.
2 Wilco @ McFarlin Auditorium (Dallas) Weds 4/22/15
Chicago indie-rock gods, Wilco, make a stop by SMU on their current tour.
3 Something Wonderful Fest @ Cotton Bowl (Dallas) Sat 4/18/15
Not really my thing, but your raver friends will know about this: Tiesto, Zed’s Dead, Cedric Gervais, Keys n Krates, Mako, amongst others.
4 Stone Temple Pilots @ House of Blues (Dallas) Fri 4/17/15
The Alt-rock legends are touring without Scott Weiland, who’s doing his own thing right now, but they have Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington on leads for this tour.
5 JD McPherson @ Sons of Hermann Hall (Dallas) Sun 4/19/15
Another of my favorite records of the year, JD McPherson heads to town for a bluesy rock throwdown. Should be a good party.
6 Waxahatchee @ Rubber Gloves (Denton) Weds 4/22/15
She’s not named after Waxahatchie, the city, but she did have my record of the week pick for last week.
7 Lady Lamb @ Sons of Hermann Hall (Dallas) Sat 4/18/15
Aly Spaltro, AKA Lady Lamb, is the 4th artist with one of my top 15 favorite records coming to town this week.
8 Nick Jonas @ Hilton Anatole (Dallas) Weds 4/22/15
The little Jonas kid has done alright. He’s back home for the ACM’s and this intimate peformance at the Hilton. Don’t be “Jealous”.
9 OK Go @ Granada Theatre (Lower Greenville) Sat 4/18/15
OK Go hit Granada this Saturday and should be a fun show. Treadmills?
10 Phox @ the Loft (Dallas) Thurs 4/23/15
One of my favorite up and coming indie-pop groups
