Thursday, November 8, at Dada
Tickets for this show, which promoters Top Shelf Shows and dCc are calling "The Day Dallas Stood Still," have yet to go on sale. If it wasn't enough that Dallas rap legends/former Dirty South Rydaz Tum Tum and Big Tuck are performing together for the first time in years, there will be a heated battle between DJs Sober and Q to start, and performances from local up-and-comers A.Dd+ and Dustin Cavazos. The show is slated for the outdoor stage, which will benefit certain smokers.

Ty Segall, Ex-Cult
Saturday, January 26, at Dada, $10-$13
Ty Segall is a man of many bands, although the garage-rocker is equally as known for his solo performances, which have proven to be top notch in years past.
