There’s a few shows I didn’t already know about here. I think I’m going to start pulling the lists directly from the venues, so I don’t miss any. I think I’ve missed a few I shouldn’t have in the last few weeks, just relying on concert schedule sites. Anyways, as you can tell by my list this week, I’m not a parrothead. This is the 2nd time Buffett’s come through in which his opening act would have rated higher with me if they came through on their own.
1 George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic @ House of Blues (Dallas) Fri 5/29/15
Here’s one I totally didn’t know about until last week that I probably would have bitten on if I’d seen it sooner. I suspect the funk legends will put on a pretty fun show.
2 Steve Miller Band w/ Jimmie Vaughan @ Verizon Theatre (Grand Prairie) Mon 6/1/15
I think there are cheap seats available out there if you’re interested in flying like an eagle with Steve Miller and Stevie Ray’s brother.
3 Jimmy Buffett w/ Huey Lewis and the News @ Toyota Stadium (Frisco) Sat 5/30/15
Send all hate mail to: Margaritaville Cheeseburger Stand, Paradise, USA, 12345
4 Train/the Fray/Matt Nathanson @ Gexa Energy Pavilion (Dallas) Fri 5/29/15
Man, there’s gonna be so many moms around my age at this show, if you’re into that kinda thing.
5 Action Bronson @ House of Blues (Dallas) Mon 6/1/15
the New York rapper tours in support of his new record, Mr Wonderful, and something always goes down at his shows.
6 KEGL BFD @ Gexa Energy Pavilion (Dallas) Sun 5/31/15
Spend your Sunday at the altar of rock with Rob Zombie and Breaking Benjamin. Burn through the witches?
7 Burning Bubba Festival @ Billy Bob’s (Fort Worth) Sat 5/30/15
Whiskey Myers, Black Stone Cherry, Holy Moly, Honky, Rival Sons. How in the hell did I not know Rival Sons was gonna be in MY town this week? I’ve got to get on more mailing lists.
8 Diarrhea Planet @ Three Links (Deep Ellum) Thurs 6/4/15
the (serious?) band with the funny name comes through Deep Ellum. I mean, I guess you’ll be talking about them, right?
9 Junior Brown @ Granada Theater (Lower Greenville) Fri 5/29/15
I’m always tempted to go check out his show when he frequents the Granada, if just to hear “Highway Patrol”
10 the Rentals/Radiation City/Rey Pila @ Club Dada (Deep Ellum) Fri 5/29/15
Former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp’s band headlines, and I also saw a few solid write ups from Coachella about opener Rey Pila.
Also in town this week: 5/29 Geographer/Idlehands/Empires @ Trees, 5/30 Royal Thunder @ Club Dada, J Charles and the Trainrobbers @ the Foundry Bar, Doug Burr @ Paschall Bar (Denton), Cracker/Whiskey Gentry @ Gas Monkey, 6/1 Northern Faces @ Three Links, Tech N9ne @ Gas Monkey, 6/4 Sam Prekop @ Club Dada, the Story So Far @ the Door
Anyways, that’s all for this week, so……
Get out there and see some shows!
