Rundown: 8/11

11 Aug

Happy Birthday, Granada!

There’s a lot of excitement going on for a Wednesday night. I love summertime … except for the heat … and the mosquitoes … and the schoolchildren crowding me everywhere I go …

Anyway, here are my top picks for tonight.

Granada’s 6th Anniversary Party w/ Built to Spill/Finn Riggins/Telegraph Canyon

The Granada has been one of my favorite venues in DFW since the first time I went there to see two of my favorite bands, Belle and Sebastian and the New Pornographers, back in 2005. It’s a gorgeous venue with a great setup and sound system. I’ve been to many memorable concerts there, most of them with people I cared about deeply, so I’m gladly braving the trek to Dallas celebrate the 6th anniversary of its revamping. Getting to see Built to Spill for the first time doesn’t hurt either.

Weekly Tape Deck Presents: Sundress/Naomi Punk/Masters & Johnson @ Dan’s

We love Weekly Tape Deck. We love Sundress. We love Dan’s. Dentonites who can’t make it to Dallas/afford the BTS tickets should go to this show. Oh, and it’s Ryan E.’s (of WTD) birthday, so buy him a shot and give him a hug from us!

Cyndi Lauper w/ David Rhodes @ House of Blues

If Built to Spill weren’t playing tonight, this is would be my pick for Dallas shows.

Rundown: 4/20 to 4/26

20 Apr

I’m not one to complain about the opportunity to see some quality live music, but doesn’t it feel like the calender has been rather hectic since NX35? It’s been one big touring act after another, and countless quality local fare almost every night for over a month now. Like I said, far be it for me to complain about actually having things I want to see, especially when there can be some pretty bleak times around these parts, but man I’m fucking broke. Anyway, this week is loaded yet again with quality and quantity, take a look after the cut. Continue reading
