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.

Widow's peak or no, Hercules and Love Affair are coming to Dallas this month

As the summer winds down, September usually sees the kick-off of proper concert touring season for the fall. When it comes to electronic music, this month is no exception. With a big-name indie dance act like Hercules and Love Affair rolling through town alongside a Chicago house veteran like Gene Farris, the dance floors in Dallas should be plenty full this month.

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.

A quick glance at our comprehensive Dallas concert guide might give you the impression that this month is stuffed with some real crap, metal-wise. Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Godsmack, Seether; it's like an endless parade of nightmares that has no place in 2014. So we here at DC9 thought we'd take a quick trawl through the listings to pick out these gems, hopefully balancing out the horrible realities of sharing a city with Fred Durst.

Three Can't-Miss Opening Bands at Clearfork Festival

Plan on Getting Clearfork'd This Saturday by Lincoln Durham. He's Into It.

We don't even know if the term "festival" has much meaning around these parts any longer. It gets thrown around like so many of Tony Romo's practice balls during training camp and seems to now apply to any concert that has more than two artists and has at least a single food truck stationed nearby. (Or at least an Arby's.) But among the mass of events that christen themselves as festivals, this weekend's Clearfork Music Festival certainly deserves the distinction.

This year's festival, held on Saturday at Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth, is headlined by a slew of Austin bands, including Black Angels, Wild Child and Bright Light Social Hour. But further down the bill there are some other fines bands you may be less familiar with but will be well worth the time. Here are a few to check out.
