Kreayshawn
Kreayshawn
Friday, November 2, at Palladium Ballroom, $17.50

The controversial rapper, whose proper debut album Somethin' 'Bout Kreay is out in late September, will be here in early November. It's one of Parade of Flesh's biggest shows yet.

The Sparrow Project
Thursday, September 6, at The Kessler Theater, $8

It's been five years since Dallas musician Carter Albrecht was killed and he is still missed. So much so that, to mark the five-year anniversary of his passing, Abbie Chesney and the Carter Albrecht Music Foundation are releasing an album called The Sparrow Project. The disc features songs from many of Carter's friends and an unreleased song from himself. The show will feature performances from Salim Nourallah, Chris Holt, Dave Little, Sammy Stritmatter and John Lefler.

Action Bronson
Sunday, September 23, at Dada, $13/$17

Albanian-American rapper Action Bronson is on his second career. His first was a chef in New York City, but he traded it in for a career in hip-hop, which seems to be going well since his debut album, Dr. Lecter, was released last year. Dada doesn't see a lot of hip-hop shows, so this should be an interesting one.

Will Johnson, Anders Parker
Tuesday, October 2, at Texas Theatre, $12
Will Johnson is only weeks away from releasing Scorpion, his first solo album in eight years. The Centro-matic and South San Gabriel frontman has recently been a part of two high profile bands: Monsters of Folk and The New Multitudes, the latter a Woody Guthrie tribute act. His New Multitudes bandmate Anders Parker will join him on this show. 

R. Stevie Moore
Thursday, October 11, at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios
Long known as the father of home recording, R. Stevie Moore will be passing through Denton again (he played Hailey's just last year, and took part in 35 Denton in March) and will perform at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios.

Sleigh Bells, AraabMuzik
Tuesday, October 16, at House of Blues, $23
Sleigh Bells are still riding the wave of buzz after their second album, Reign of Terror, came out earlier this year.

Jeff the Brotherhood, Diarrhea Planet
Tuesday, October 23, at Dada, $11-$15
How do you tell your grandma you're in a band called Diarrhea Planet? Jeff the Brotherhood, now that's a band name grandma can cheer for. Let's hope there's plenty of toilet paper stocked up in the bathrooms.

Ben Kweller
Friday, October 26, at The Kessler Theater, $20-$30
East Texas' own Ben Kweller is no stranger to these parts. He'll be performing two shows -- an early one and a late one -- at The Kessler on October 26. Both shows will sell out fast, so get over to the Kessler's ticket website and get you one, as any good Ben Kweller fan would say.

Matisyahu
Monday, November 19, at House of Blues, $25

I'm just impressed that Matisyahu is still going.

The Faint, Trust, Icky Blossoms
Tuesday, November 27, at House of Blues, $19.50

This show announcement comes with the news that The Faint's 2001 album, Danse Macabre, will be remastered and reissued, and the band will perform the album in its entirety.
