Stare Into The Abyss with Dawes.
I know for a fact that many of you are dealing with massive hangovers this morning.
Whether South by Southwest, St. Patrick's Day, Spillover Festival or even that Wavves show is to blame, well, that doesn't really matter.
What matters is that we're all in this together — and that we're not going to let this bump in the road keep us down. So pull yourself right back up by your bootstraps and get to stepping, for tonight there are several top-notch events well worth the trek out out of your bed.
Dawes at Good Records
South by Southwest may be in the rearview for these laid back, lyrical, Laurel Canyon rockers now, but they've still got their third album, the April-scheduled Stories Don't End, to promote. With that in mind, Taylor Goldsmith and his adored touring outfit will stop by Good Records at 7 p.m. tonight for a free show. Well, OK, it's kinda free: If you want into the store to watch it, you've got to pre-order that new record from the store. Deal? Deal. Nashville's Leagues open, with their set starting at 6 o'clock.
DFW Music Mixer at the House of Blues
The Foundation Room will play host tonight to this new monthly event for music industry types looking to network. The House of Blues says this event is “the perfect opportunity to meet Dallas, Ft. Worth Metroplex DJ's [sic] that directly control and influence the music scene,” so you should totally go and see if this is that big break your garage band has been seeking.
The Revival Tour with Chuck Ragan at Trees
Chuck Ragan was once a pretty cool punk rocker. But he's now a pretty cool indie folker, and, for the sixth year now, he's bringing to town his Revival Tour, which celebrates indie folkers just like him. Matt Pryor, Jenny Owen Youngs, Tim McIIrath, Jay Malinowski, Rocky Votolato and Toh Kay round out this incredible bill.
Joshua James, David Ramirez and Isaac Russell at Prophet Bar
If Trees' folk lineup tonight doesn't float your boat, maybe this one will.
