The Toadies play the Bomb Factory's third night.

A brand new addition to the Dallas music scene has been hyped up and hyped up and hyped up. And well, the hype is well deserved. The Bomb Factory opened its doors to the public on Thursday with a spectacular sold out show headlined by the Queen of Dallas, Erykah Badu. This weekend you can catch plenty of other shows, like the third-ever at The Bomb Factory with the Toadies. There's also Reckless Kelly at Granada Theeater, Sir-Mix-a-lot at Trees and much, much more.

The one and only Erykah Badu headlines The Bomb Factory's grand opening.

The insanity of South By South West is over. You'll have to wait until next year to stand in unforgivably long lines unless you want to post up at the DMV for shits and giggles. However, the music never stops. This week, The Bomb Factory has its grand opening. Dallas Distortion Music, Burger Records, Lolipop Records and Vice Palace have a showcase at Pariah Arts. Sir-Mix-A-Lot plays Trees and an interesting jazz band, Moon Hooch, does Club Dada. There's plenty more too. Have fun this week.

Stevie Wonder, a man so important, he has truthers.

As you're probably very aware. It's South By Southwest right now, but who cares? You're in Dallas and you're still more than capable of seeing some shows, plus you wont stand in line for 1,000 hours. TV on the Radio plays its second sold out show at the Granada tonight, but has a free show at Good Records at 6 p.m. as well. Hozier takes the House of Blues to church, Dilated Peoples play a rare rap show at Gas Monkey Live! and probably the most poppin' event in Dallas this entire weekend will be Spillover in Deep Ellum. Cheers. Have Fun.

Want to see TV on the Radio? For free? Of course you do. Thank the spillover gods

Are you so over SXSW? Don't wanna make the drive? Have to work? Go to school? Well, you might be in luck, if there's a certain band you want to see. Every year when the festival pops up in Austin, a few smart musicians pop over to Dallas. The not-so-smart think that if they hit Austin, they've knocked out the massive state of Texas. We've compiled a list of the shows that are stopping over in Dallas this week. There's plenty like TV on the Radio, Raury, Gang of Four, and even Jack White is bringing his roving record store here.

Is he supernatural?

This week a small niche festival that you've most likely never heard of before is taking place in Austin. It's called South By South West. There's also a ton of great stuff taking place at home here in Dallas. Guitar god Carlos Santana and the Beach Boys (separately) stop by Verizon Theatre. DJ Premier and Royce Da 5' 9 performs at Trees, rising star Raury hits Club Dada and TV on the Radio play two sold-out gigs at Granada Theater. Here's all the great stuff going down this week.

Do you dream of the aughts?

It feels like the first weekend with nice weather since Zach Morris had the brick phone. That's because it has been roughly two decades since our weekends weren't a polar vortex. Enjoy yourself with these concerts. The Josh Abbot Band is even playing outside for St. Patty's Day. Charlie Wilson is at Grand Prairie. 35 Denton comes back as a now three day festival. Larry g(EE) and a slew of other gifted local musicians do Club Dada, and hell there's a lot of great choices this weekend. Go to every single one of them if you can.

Uh huh honey.

The weekend is over and we are just as sad about it as you are, especially now that it's raining again. However, there's a slew of great shows worthy of your attention this week. Charlie Wilson, of the Gap Band and G.O.O.D. Music, takes on Grand Prairie. Upstanding American citizens Chris Brown and Tyga hit the American Airlines Center. Aesop Rock plays a show at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill. 
Rob Thomas does the casino gig and 35 Denton returns. Plus much, much more.

Mavis Staples, a true living legend, plays the Kessler Sunday night
Well, the second great storm of 2015 in Dallas has passed and while we're complaining about the frigidness of the weather, we should remember that we'll also be cry babies when it's 7,000 degrees outside in three months. It's a valid complaint is since we are in Texas, tand he resources to make the roads drivable are readily available so driving to places isn't all that smart. But, now the roads are clear, so take your ass to some concerts this weekend. We even have some ideas about which ones you should go to.

Synthetic Drug N-Bomb Could Mean Tougher Policing of Dallas Nightlife

Should the kids in the clubs be worried about the potential rise of N-Bomb?

For anyone with even a minor amount of tact, much less a grasp of what it means to be a respectable human being in 2015, an "N-Bomb" is something to be avoided. Needless to say, it can cause an explosion of sorts in certain social settings. Now it seems as though we should get acquainted with another type of N-Bomb. An increasingly popular drug known as N-Bomb (or smiles or 2CI-NBOMe) is a form of synthetic LSD, which comes in the form of a powder, tiny paper or liquid. It's also increasingly relevant to Dallas nightlife thanks to a series of overdoses in the past couple years, including another one that happened just last month.

Party Like It's 1999 with a Total Request Live-Themed Show at Three Links on Thursday

His dress is timeless, but Larry g(EE)'s video tastes are strictly turn of the millennium
For people of a certain age -- namely millennials -- MTV's Total Request Live was a fixture of their after-school routine. The Carson Daly-hosted video countdown show was the biggest musical tastemaker for teens and twentysomethings of the era, helping build the careers of the 2000s biggest pop stars, like Destiny's Child, Christina Aguilera and the ubiquitous boy bands of the time. Now, thanks to local R&B singer Larry g(EE), we can bask in the glory of TRL nostalgia this Thursday night at Three Links.
