The Coathangers are coming for you, Dallas

If you're anything like me, you've been to more than a few concerts already over the course of the week. And hey, maybe you need a night off or two to recover from all the fun you've had on nights when you've still had work the next day. Then again, maybe you're just that much hungrier for more shows now that the weekend is coming up. In that case, you're in luck. It's the last weekend of July and there are plenty of shows to get ready for.

7:30 p.m., Friday, July 25, at The Prophet Bar

You might recognize Kawehi's enthralling vocals and love of looping from her now-viral "Heart-Shaped Box" cover, which captured the attention of many with its release in March of this year. Unsurprisingly, this isn't the 31-year-old singer-songwriter's first brush at success. Long before her unique covers ever hit the Internet, the Hawaii native enjoyed a successful run in Los Angeles before relocating to Kansas in June. She has since released a handful of projects, fashioning a creative mix of electronica, pop and rock with a genuine love for science fiction. She'll be on tour in support of her latest release, Robot Heart. Michelle Ofiwe

7 p.m., Friday, July 24, at House of Blues

At this point, the tale of two Nickelodeon alumni graduating to tweenage pop stars shouldn't come as a surprise; in fact, it seems to be what the media conglomerate does best. Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller represent only part of Nickelodeon's new generation of multi-talented rapping-singing-wunderkids, but are clearly making a name for themselves on the pop and hip-hop charts. After immense positive reception of their 2013 debut, Thank You, the duo released their self-titled EP in April 2014 to a still-growing fanbase, and rapidly linked up with Disney veteran Demi Lovato for a summer 2014 tour. They'll be flying solo for their return to Dallas, and with plenty of new material behind them. MO

The Oscillators
Saturday, July 26, at The Prophet Bar

The Oscillators are out on a mission to save rock 'n' roll -- but not from itself. In fact, all the Flower Mound natives want to do is make the purest rock 'n' roll possible, and have no problem drawing from a variety of folk, psychedelia, funk and classic rock influences to create the perfect synergy of "high-voltage rock." If you want to groove, the Oscillators have the rhymes and the time to make it happen for you, and it won't even cost you that much. They'll be joined by Austin indie-rock duo the Vantage, folk-blues singer Macon Hatton and more. MO
