I kind of feel like this is a bit of a slow week, but it’ll do. Also, the Levitt Pavilion schedule kicks off this week.
1 Neil Diamond @ American Airlines Center (Dallas) Thurs 5/28/15
Ba-Ba-Ba! So Good! So Good! So Good! and scene……
2 Slash @ Southside Ballroom (Dallas) Sun 5/24/15
We saw Slash opening for Aerosmith, but it would be nice to see a full set. It was great to hear some of the classics again.
3 Hayes Carll @ Levitt Pavilion (Arlington) Fri 5/22/15
One of Texas’s favorite young story-tellers. Get there early, as the first Levitt show of the year is generally packed.
4 Purity Ring @ Bomb Factory (Deep Ellum) Fri 5/22/15
The Canadian dream pop duo hit Deep Ellum in support of their recent output, another eternity.
5 Earl Sweatshirt @ South Side Music Hall (Dallas) Fri 5/22/15
The Odd Future alum makes an appearance in support of the critically acclaimed I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside.
6 Wolf Alice @ Club Dada (Deep Ellum) Sat 5/23/15
An emerging buzzworthy indie rock band out of London
7 Ciara @ House of Blues (Dallas) Fri 5/22/15
Ciara brings all her goodies to House of Blues.
8 Swon Brothers @ Billy Bob’s (Fort Worth) Fri 5/22/15
the Swon Brothers might be my favorite of Blake’s country acts on the Voice. Craig Wayne Boyd doesn’t count, cuz I’m pissed off that he didn’t let him transition to the Southern Rock sound that his voice was much better suited for.
9 Alejandro Escovedo @ Kessler Theater (Oak Cliff) Fri 5/22/15
Hard rockin’ Austin singer-songwriter.
10 Todd Rundgren @ Prophet Bar (Deep Ellum) Weds 5/27/15
Iconic songwriter/producer from the 70’s and 80’s.
Also in town this week: Soul Asylum @ Levitt Pavilion, Volbeat @ Verizon Theatre, Milkdrive @ Live Oak Music Hall, Kopecky @ Live Oak Music Hall, Sam Riggs & the Night People @ Billy Bob’s, Agent Orange @ Trees, 10 Years @ Rockin’ Rodeo
Anyways, that’s all for this week, so……
Get out there and see some shows!
