11-New-Carshow-Poster_Aug22.jpg
This weekend marks 97.9 The Beat's sixth annual custom car show, which will take place on Sunday, August 22, at the Dallas Convention Center. This year, the event's headliners are Gucci Mane, Ice Cube, Waka Flocka Flame, Plies, Bun B, Trina, Slim Thug and a man who will definitely show off his ice cream paint job, Dorrough.

Advanced tickets can be purchased for $17 at the event's website and, interestingly enough, at various Williams Chicken locations. Tickets purchased at the door will be $25.

Didn't get your '64 impala cleaned up in time for the car show? Well, here are some other shows we've already mentioned this week.

On Friday, Analog Rebellion will continue shedding his emo beginnings along with Archeology, Land Mammals, and Young and Brave at Hailey's Club.

On Saturday, Dead Twins will be kicking out the Led Zeppelin-by-way-of-Stone Temple Pilots jams at La Grange. But, if that's a bit too heavy for you, Fort Worth's Green River Ordinance is opening for Goo Goo Dolls and Switchfoot at Superpages.com Center.

And on Sunday, The Budos Band will be at the Granada Theater. Plus, as always, Ricky Derek will be at The Cavern.

More of this weekend's shows after the jump...

Daniel Ash, Viv Albertine, Mike Graff, Alpha Silence
Friday, August 20, at Trees

Looks like it's former members of awesome bands night at Trees tonight. Daniel Ash of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets, Viv Albertine of The Slits, and Mike Graff of Course of Empire share this bill. Should be a pretty cool throwback show.

Drawn By Jaymz
Friday, August 20, at Bryan Street Tavern

Drawn By Jaymz seems like a bit of a recluse when it comes to playing shows. He has no problem cranking out two or three records per year, though. There's no telling what songs he'll play at this show, but he's got a ton to choose from.

Stop Child Trafficking Now with Rescue Signals, The Rumor, B-Hamp & more
Friday, August 20, at Curtain Club

The bands and hip-hop artists on this bill have teamed up with Stop Child Trafficking Now to raise awareness about the problem of child trafficking in the US. This should be a great show, and it's for an even better cause. Dustin Cavazos was originally scheduled to perform as well, but canceled last night.

Tanya Morgan
Friday, August 20, at The Green Elephant

Brooklyn underground hip-hop trio Tanya Morgan will be passing though town tonight at the Green Elephant. Check out their hilarious Myspace-themed video for their song "We Be."

George Quartz, Darktown Strutters, Future Blondes, DJG
Friday, August 20, at Pastime Tavern

Looks like Pastime Tavern is starting to have some good shows again. With the booking help of Darktown Strutters singer Kara Howell and shows like this one, the place will be a solid concert venue before long.

Brave Combo
Saturday, August 21, at All Good Cafe

Seems like the All Good Cafe is the perfect place to see Brave Combo. The carefree Austin-like atmosphere provides a great setting to chug a few cold Lone Stars and do the chicken dance.

The King Bucks
Saturday, August 21, at Adair's Saloon

The King Bucks gave up their usual residency at Adair's a while back, but this is a chance to relive the glory days--and practice your best line dancing moves.

Sinedown, Chevelle, Sevendust, Puddle Of Mudd
Sunday, August 22, at Verizon Theatre
People's butts will be rocked. Maybe.

Taylor Young, Jason Bonner, Aaron White
Sunday, August 22, at Barley House
(Show is now next weekend at House of Blues. See comments.)
Looks like Taylor Young is breaking out on his own. Do I sense trouble in The O's' camp? Of course not. John Pedigo's probably playing somewhere else with one of his other 12 bands.

Grant Jones
Sunday, August 22, at La Grange

La Grange has the pretty interesting idea to book bands during brunch on the weekends. Grant Jones and his acoustic guitar should go over real well as night owls nurse their weekend hangovers.

...and that's about it. Add more in the comments if you've got 'em. Otherwise, we'll see you on Monday.
