Get Lo Down at the The Prophet Bar.
Halfway through the week, and it's looking like there's already a ton of stuff to do.
Usually, concert season rolls around these parts in the October/November area of the calendar. But, for whatever reason, there are some pretty sweet shows going on tonight. In December.
It's a holiday miracle! Anyone that doesn't think so has the right to stay basic.
But who's playing, you ask? Well, genre-bending singer-songwriter ZZ Ward will be performing at Trees, the official flower children of Athens (of Montreal) are at the Granada and Erykah Badu will be DJing at the Prophet Bar under her DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown moniker.
So get out there and get down.
DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown at Prophet Bar
It's not exactly a secret that the Prophet Bar's Wednesday night jam sessions are where it's at. Tonight, it's about to get a little bit more bumpin', with DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown (Miss Badu, if you're nasty) spinning tunes as party of the festivities.
of Montreal at Granada Theater
Kevin Barnes and his magic band of fairies are back in Dallas — yes, again — to spread their brand of weirdo psych pop this evening. Barnes' masterful lyricism is sometimes overshadowed by his band's elaborate stage show, but that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy both. Fittingly, local favorites Ishi will be opening up for them.
Jason Boland, Cody Canada and Chris Knight at House of Blues
It's acoustic night at House of Blues, which means that if you're down with dudes playing sadbro songs on the guitar, then it's your night. Let all of the emotions out with Jason Boland, Cody Canada and Chris Knight as they each play solo sets.
Mad Swirl Open Mic at Absinthe Lounge
If you're a creative type, you're probably no stranger to the open mic. It's a pretty neat process where people at different levels on the artistic spectrum can share their work. If you're a poet, musician or just someone who likes attention, there's no better time to get started.
ZZ Ward at Trees
Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter ZZ Ward is nothing if not unique, from her name to her songs that merge blues rock and hip-hop. Notably, she has a highly coveted guest-verse from Kendrick Lamar on Til the Casket Drops's “Cryin' Wolf.”
Abstract Rude at Bryan Street Tavern
Backpackers unite as the Grand Royal- and Rhymesayers-approved Abstract Rude takes his rhymes Bryan Street's way with some support from The Kleenrz.
