The Ten Best Concerts In Dallas This Weekend, November 1-4

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

With controversial 23-year-old rapper Kreayshawn's new album out, of course she's hitting the road. She takes the stage at the Palladium to deliver songs from debut Somethin' 'Bout Kreay, and hopefully offer something that eclipses the success of 2011 single "Gucci Gucci."

Thursday, November 1, at Granada Theater, $39

The Helio Sequence
Friday, November 2, at Dan's Silverleaf, $13

Oregon-based duo The Helio Sequence has been around since the late '90s, putting out albums on Sup Pop and touring with a handful of up-and-coming bands. Their latest release, Negotiations, is more ethereal than past albums. See them perform with Ramona Falls, which includes Portland band Menomena's Brent Knopf.

Hares on the Mountain
Friday, November 2, at The Free Man, Free

For a knee-slappin', hootin' and hollerin' good time, check out Hares on the Mountain at The Free Man this week. The five-piece folk and bluegrass group is full of recognizable musicians, from guitarist Ryan Thomas Becker to violinist Petra Kelly, and the stage banter alone is enough to keep you hooked. Lead singer George Neal heads up the group as they take you on a lyrical journey through songs about death, drinkin' and the Gold Rush.

Minus the Bear, Cursive, Girl in a Coma
Saturday, November 3, at House of Blues, $20

Popular prog-pop band Minus the Bear will be hitting House of Blues with Saddle Creek's Cursive and San Antonio's Girl in a Coma, a band on Joan Jett's Blackheart Records label. Minus the Bear just released their most recent album, Infinity Overhead.

The North Oak Cliff Music Festival
Saturday, November 3, at Lake Cliff Park, $12-$35

Check out our interview with Bobby Patterson, one of the many acts playing this inaugural Oak Cliff fest.

Indian Jewelry
Indian Jewelry, New Fumes, Midnite Society, Strange Towers
Saturday, November 3, at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios, $7/$9

Houston's experimental chameleons Indian Jewelry will make a pit stop at Rubber Gloves as they make their way through Texas, anticipating the release of a new 12-inch LP, Peel It. Catch them with psychedelic friends New Fumes, Midnite Society and Strange Towers.

Saturday, November 3, at Granada Theater, $35-$49

Los Angeles punk rock veterans X head to Dallas after their Fun Fun Fun Fest slot on Friday, and will definitely play songs from 1980's Los Angeles. Fingers crossed for some Wild Gift as well.

Delta Spirit
Sunday, November 4, at House of Blues, $25

It's evident by their surf-inspired tracks that Delta Spirit have bottled up some California, and are taking it on the road with them. The quintet recently released their fifth studio album.

Sunday, November 4, at LaGrange, $10

New Orleans' electro-rock duo Generationals self-released their second album, Lucky Numbers, in early October, and are currently on a short U.S. tour in support. The band had some steady commercial success this year, including when the duo's most well-known track, "When They Fight, They Fight," was featured in a film, then an ad for Amazon Kindle.

Damien Jurado + Sharon Van Etten at Trees will be better than Cats.


It's on the 5th but don't forget about Primus on Monday night at McFarlin. Busting out some old songs that have never or rarely seen the light of day. Leave your talky biatches that want to hear Winona or Jerry at home. Dallas needs to shut up at concerts.

Sad to see no mention of the Macklemore + Ryan Lewis show tonight at the HoB (Cambridge Room) :(

"Kreayshawn" is on the list (whoever that is) and no Keller Williams (at Granada Theater tomorrow night)?! Little disappointed, Observer.
