The Seven Best Concerts in Dallas This Week, September 5-11

Summer is coming to an end, but not without one more festival to tie the season up with a bow. Paste Untapped is touting about 200 craft beers on deck, so that ought to help you battle out the heat outside Gilley's. Hopefully they won't make the same mistake as The Mad Decent Block Party last week, where Zouk failed to provide more than two bar areas. Dallas clubs and promoters, it is too damn hot outside for your Summer fest to have 6,500 people and less than 5 bar areas. If you're looking for something a little more air conditioned, you could witness a live album recording with Ray Wylie Hubbard at The Kessler. Or, you could sweat through your clothes anyway dancing the night away at Rebirth Brass Band or Mexican Institute of Sound. Either way, make sure you end your Summer right, you'll only get one chance.

Mexican Institute of Sound, Los Master Plus
Thursday, September 5, at Trees
If you're not familiar, Red Bull Panamerika is one of the internet's strongest platforms for Latin Alternative, Rock En Espanol, Cumbiatronica, and every other genre of modern Latin music. With the Wazzap Tour, Panamerika brings two of the niche's most exciting acts to five Southern US cities. Mexican Institute of Sound is a Mexico City based DJ who works heavily with classic Latin samples of the 20th century. Los Master Plus are a Cumbia crooning duo who have gained notoriety in the past few years for brilliantly done cover versions of Kings of Leon's "Sex On Fire" and No Doubt's "Don't Speak". The dance floor is going to be poppin for this one. Don't be afraid to let some exotic, handsome stranger give you a twirl. Vanessa Quilantan

Ray Wylie Hubbard
Thursday, September 5, at The Kessler Theater
It is an occasion when Ray Wylie Hubbard plays a hometown show because they only made one cowboy as wry and honest as this one. This is an occasion to commemorate because it will, in fact, be commemorated in the form of a live recording. So go, practice your claps into a tape recorder before hand, but hecklers be warned: Ray's wilier than you. Kiernan Maletsky

St. David's Music Series Presents: Isaac Hoskins, Ryan Thomas Becker & Chambers
Friday, September 6, at St. David of Wales
No matter your flavor of Flying Spaghetti Monster, there's little doubt that big old churches are more capable of connecting you to some thing that's bigger than you. Our particular flavor of Spaghetti Monster happens to be music, so it's a bit of kismet when a big beautiful church hosts a rock & roll concert, as St. David of Wales occasionally does. You may remember this series as the host of such impressive pipes as Sarah Jaffe, and this weekend's lineup carries the tradition well. KM
