The Six Best Concerts In Dallas This Weekend

Friday, October 5, at Granada Theater

This time last year, former North Texas rapper Astronautalis had just released his 11-track gem, This Is Our Science. This Friday, he opens for Flobots, a Denver-based prog hip-hop group signed to Motown Records. On his website, Astronautalis encourages you to be proactive: "Their fans are nuts, my fans are nuts...all I'm sayin...might want to buy tickets in advance. Seriously." GalleryCat opens. -- Rachel Watts

Thursday, October 4, at Good Records/Dada
Getting to see Fuxa, the longtime electronic project of Detroit's Randall Nieman, in an intimate space like Good Records should be enough to get the synth-heads out. The group's latest release, Electric Sound of Summer, features vocal contributions from Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips and a cover of Fun Boy Three's "Our Lips Are Sealed," but a decade between albums has given Nieman a chance to fine-tune his ambient sound, and the result is blissful. Austin's All in the Golden Afternoon set the scene. 6 p.m. Catch them later tonight at Dada with New Fumes. -- Audra Schroeder

October 5 & 6, at Trees

With the arrival of fall, we're knee-deep in festival season, and Spune Productions is testing its fest powers in the heart of Deep Ellum with this weekend's first-ever Index Festival. The roster features a handful of locals (Yells At Eels, The Cush, Datahowler, The Angelus, Telegraph Canyon, A.Dd+, Low Dark Hills, Bethan, Blackstone Rangers, Air Review, DJ Sober) rubbing shoulders with bigger names like GZA, Washed Out and Grimes. Check out some our our picks here. -- Audra Schroeder

Acoustic Psycho Killer is one of the renditions of any song ever. "I've got a song I'd like to play for you"


The free anniversary show at Bryan Street Tavern sounds the best to me (not just because it's free). Royal Bangs, Turbo Fruits, and Those Darlins by themselves are worthy enough for me.
