|Ruby Jane |
Friday, June 29, at McDavid Studio
Ruby Jane, the 17-year-old fiddle phenom, lives in Austin but got her start right here in Dallas. It's hard not to love her. Even Willie Nelson has chimed in with praise for the young country singer, who just released her latest album, Celebrity (Empire of Emptiness).
Nada Surf, Air Review
Thursday, June 28, at Granada Theater
been a few years and a handful of albums since Nada Surf had a hit, and
well over a decade since they had their first with "Popular." The
band's mid-Aughts resurgence was a surprise to all, not only because

pop songs "Blonde On Blonde" and "Inside of Love." Odds are that both
songs will be played tonight.

Ramblin' Jack Elliott
Friday, June 29, at Poor David's Pub

Classical Mystery Tour
Saturday, June 30, at Fort Worth Botanic Gardens
love the Classical Mystery Tour. A really good Beatles tribute act is
joined by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra in a pristine outdoor
setting. It's hard to beat.
Sunday, July 1, at El Sibil
Hart's fantastic 2012 record The Orientalist is matched only by his
live performances, during which he switches from violin to guitar and
back. He's even repurposed a Dance Dance Revolution electronic mat to
trigger different effects while his band crafts well-orchestrated pop
