Well, it's the weekend once again. We here at DC9 hope you powered through the week and that you're looking for some relief. We want you to go to some bars and have a few drinks. We want you to pregame beforehand. (That's just being fiscally responsible.) But most importantly, we want you to check out some shows in North Texas. There's a festival in Denton, a few free things around Dallas and, fittingly, Conor Oberst on Sunday, meaning all of his followers can have a truly spiritual experience.

Well, it's the weekend and it's been a crazy week. The National Football League has proven itself to be a true shitstorm and foreign affairs, with ISIS and all, aren't looking so hot. But at least you've got music. You've worked hard all week and now you can go out and have some fun with Kings of Leon, the Black Lips, Lydia Lovelace, or the Toadies. The choice is yours. You earned it, you crazy kids.

Spoiler alert: we didn't ask Delta Spirit about their rad sweaters

"We want to write epic songs so that we can do big, epic shows," says Matthew Vasquez, frontman for Delta Spirit. Speaking from a tour stop in Chicago during a lightning storm, Vasquez says that he is ready to return to Dallas. He gets his wish tonight as his band plays the Granada Theater.

"The last time we played Dallas, it was a ton of fun," says Vasquez, "but that scaffolding (in the Granada Theater) is kind of scary to climb on."

Collectively, a city sluggishly heads back to to its desk. Welcome to the working week. Your weekend is over, hopefully it was perfectly fun. (Well, unless you watched the Cowboys game.) But there is plenty more to be had by seeing live music. As per usual, a few great shows are plucked in here and there this week. Washed Out is here to supply a steady and completely chill groove at the Granada Theater and Isaiah Rashad is headlining a top-notch hip-hop bill at Trees.

A great thing about holiday weekends is that they bleed into the next week, just a little bit. Yes, you're thrown out of whack treating a Tuesday like it's a Monday and that's weird -- it throws off your workplace vertigo. But, your week is only four days long and that is good. That means you get to enjoy the fun activities of concert going and staying out until the wee hours of the morning even sooner than normal weeks. Here are a few suggestions for some concerts to attend on this first weekend of September. Kudos to any soul badass enough to wear white pants this weekend.

Buffi Jacobs came from a classical background. She's played in rock bands and collaborated with musicians and artists of all stripes. She even spent this summer on and off tour. But now, after all those years of work, Jacobs has a new project, one that pulls together all those disparate influences, to look forward to. It's called Anaphase, and it's not lacking for ambition. Maybe that's why her optimism comes with a touch of exhaustion.

"It's just something that I've been thinking about for years," Jacobs says, sounding not unlike a marathoner who just crossed the finish line. "It's finally..." she says, trailing off with a laugh. "Come to fruition. I mean, it's been a lot of hard work getting all the pieces moving, but you know, it's finally happening."

Fuck school, just go to Rubber Gloves this week. (No, actually go to school too.)
Oh, Free Week. It's officially September and school is back into full swing for UNT and TWC up in Denton. Fortunately, Rubber Gloves is doing its part to help ease the dread by hosting its annual Free Week festivities to promote local Texas music and make the kids forget about that whole "higher education" silliness.

This will be the ninth year of the event, and 22 bands will play over six days at the dive-y Denton institution. The event serves as a perfect introduction to the essential artists of the area and a melting pot for Denton newcomers and veterans alike. All that we really need to tell you in this situation is "free," but we'll go one step further and break down the highlights of each night.
