Can we just take a second to acknowledge that the weather in Dallas-Fort Worth these past couple of weeks has been glorious? Optimal for outdoor shows, BYOB events and the like, the weather should remain this awesome--barring a tornado or two--for a short while longer (before the inevitable Texas summer heatwave descends upon us all). To usher in the incredible, short-lived spring weather, we've roped-in several concerts for you this week, which includes Saturday's Untapped festival in Fort Worth, at which the weather will be decidedly sunny and 70 degrees. Beer-swillers and Jaffe fans rejoice! Dallas will be getting its Untapped pretty soon, too, so hold tight Big D. Read about the nine other must-see concerts below, including party boy Har Mar Superstar, Crystal motherfucking Castles, Record Store Day (also partially outdoors) and more.

Danny Brown is playing at Trees on 4/10.
Editor: April showers, right? But a little water isn't stopping anyone, which is good because there are excellent shows happening this week. Including the blissfully strange Danny Brown, touring with beat master and unexpected meme star Baauer. -topic and his TeamFromNoWhere are throwing a party on Saturday at Club Dada -- they're some of the most creative artists working in the city right now. And the clouds are supposed to be gone by the weekend, leaving you with perfect walking around weather for the Deep Ellum Arts Festival. The rest of our picks follow.

Mindless Self Indulgence.

Editor: Welcome to our weekly rundown of our nine favorite shows, all of which are better than this new Lil' Wayne album. It's terrible, guys.

If you're looking for loud, head to Dada for The Casualties and awesome friends. If you're looking for something a little more multi-generational on this Easter weekend, we recommend House of Blues' brunch. Local hero Ryan Thomas Becker's doing Sparklehorse and Mindless Self Indulgence is a hell of a lot of fun live. There's more, check it out:

This week gives us an assortment of both well-knowns, like Randy Travis and Sarah Jaffe, and lesser-known local acts that are just getting their feet wet in the DFW music scene. Any questions?
