The 10 Best Concerts in Dallas this Week, March 3 - 9
LA Weekly Lorde does Dallas tomorrow night.
Festival season is upon us, and just because there's no 35 Denton this year doesn't mean things have slowed down for 2014. This week Untapped returns to Fort Worth, Three Links and Mad World Records will each celebrate their anniversaries with fests, and the inaugural ONE FEST will spend the weekend at Sons of Hermann Hall. There's plenty of other single-headliner shows to catch as well, so good luck trying to rest up for South by Southwest.
Tuesday, March 4 at South Side Ballroom
New Zealand's Lorde is not your average pop sensation, but unless you've been living under a rock since last summer, you probably already knew that. Her debut mega-hit, "Royals", has been immortalized with constant radio play, countless YouTube parodies, and even a performance on the Grammy stage. Tomorrow's show at South Side Ballroom is already sold out.
Tuesday, March 4 at Club Dada
Former art director Seth Haley retired from the design world just before his first release under the name Com Truise. His 80's influenced chill wave style of deejaying has garnered fans from all over the world- and he's remixed wildly popular indie pop artists including Sky Ferreira, Neon Indian, Twin Shadow, and even Daft Punk. Fort Worth's Ronnie Heart will open the show.
Thursday, March 6 at Club Dada
It's kind of fuzzy, it's kind of droney, kind of trippy, and the lead singer is only ever seen performing in a knitted fly mask- which makes him look like some sort of insect/human hybrid. All this and more has made Ice Balloons one of the most buzzed about bands of bands of the last year. They've been collaborating a lot with TV on The Radio's Kyp Malone, who will join them at Club Dada on Thursday.
Thursday, March 6 at Three Links
Kevin Seconds is front man for the seminal 80's hardcore band 7 Seconds. This week, he brings his acoustic singer-songwriter solo material to Three Links in support of new album, Off Stockton.
Friday, March 7 at South Side Music Hall
In December, Childish Gambino released one of the most talked about albums in independent rap music. Because The Internet got people interested for a variety of reasons. From content, to production, to featured artists- there are plenty of reasons to give it a listen. Perhaps the most intriguing thing about Childish Gambino (who you may also know as Donald Glover, one of the stars of NBC's Community), is the raw and unmitigated honesty in his lyrics. Presale tickets have already sold out, which is a testament in itself to the rapper's quickly growing fan base.
