Will you remember me?

People of a certain age, the millennial bunch, will always remember Sarah McLachlan for her contribution to Myspace. She was the one who made "Angel," the sad-as-shit song that played during all of the videos about animal abuse. Well, she's at Winstar World Casino this weekend, which means you can relive that experience. Also playing shows this week, Key!, a charismatic rapper from Atlanta; the one with that "bass," Meghan Trainor; the band with the macabre name, A Place to Bury Strangers; and much more.

All about that zzzz

Have no fear, Dallas; as soon as this dreaded icepocalypse ends, we'll have plenty of concerts to revive our flagging social lives. In one of the most left field choices in recent memory, Meghan Trainor is taking all of her bass to the Granada Theater. Jonathan Richman keeps his recurring shows in Denton alive. Diana Ross, who gave us Tracee Ellis Ross as well as, you know, her music, plays the Verizon Theatre. Key! plays a nondescript Deep Ellum locale. There's plenty more too.

I'm Terrified of Seeing Trash Talk at Club Dada Tonight

Trash Talk kind of frightens me. And by kind of I mean definitely.

Trash Talk, the hardcore punk band from Sacramento, California, has a reputation. Like, a walk around, always screaming reputation. A leave a fan bloodied reputation. A start a mosh pit, rad reputation. Since their inception in 2005, they've been putting on shows that ought to require fans to sign a waiver like the contracts the lab rats on The Real World have to sign: We're not exactly responsible for things of minor consequence like loss of limbs, mental illness or, you know, death. Okay, maybe I'm being a bit hyperbolic here, but you get the gist. If that sounds like music to your ears, then Club Dada is the place to be tonight.

Seryn come home from Nashville for the Thin Line Fest in Denton this week

When it comes to concerts in North Texas this week the biggest single event of the week may not be in Dallas, but rather in Denton. The Thin Line Film Fest has a wonderful music bill that includes Devin the Dude, Joe Ely, Blue, the Misfit and local expats Seryn. But of course there are plenty of great shows in Dallas, as well. Maroon 5 is doing the American Airlines Center, Trash Talk's at Club Dada and the Coathangers are at Trees. And, well, there's a ton more too.

Party with these folks on Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day is on Saturday. If you're solo and lonely, there's a quick fix. You can pay money for someone to pretend to be your girlfriend or boyfriend for $30. If that prospect doesn't scare you enough, then remember this: Tonight is also Friday the 13th. But never fear, there are plenty of concerts to put you at ease this weekend. Sarah Jaffe, Blue, the Misfit, Sam Lao, and S1 have a collaborative show at Trees. Party Static has an EP release party at Three Links. Animal Collective is doing a DJ set at Club Dada. Just do whatever your anatomically correct heart desires.

Let Animal Collective make your Valentine's Day get trippy, in DJ form.

Valentine's Day is coming up. It's a holiday that celebrates love and puts an immense amount on both single and coupled people. I feel dirty using the word "coupled." There's so much stuff to consider. Why am I single? Will she marry me? Why am I not getting any Tinder matches right now, it must be broken? When are we gonna stop the riff raff and get to the bumping and the grinding? So much stress. So much pressure. In order to ease your mind about the St. Valentine's Massacre Day, we've got a list of lovely concerts for you to attend.

Shout out to former North Texas musicians St. Vincent, Lecrae and Pentatonix for winning Grammy Awards last night. That's awesome and a major accomplishment. It's the second best thing about the show if we're honest, the first of course was Kanye West running up on stage when Beck beat Beyonce for Album of the Year. Anywho, there are a ton of shows to check out during this lovely heat wave. There's Bass Drum of Death at Club Dada, Bob Seger at the American Airlines Center, and Sarah Jaffe at Trees, among many others.

Zola Jesus season approaching at Trees.

Welcome to February. Also known as Black History month. As a music blog, we suggest you dig into some classic and obscure African American music this month. It's your civic duty.

Wale's over at the House of Blues. Nipsey Hussle is over at The Prophet Bar. And the list goes on. Literally.
