Currensy To Headline a Free, December 12 Red Bull Sound Select Showcase at Trees.
After five months of shows in the Dallas market, the Red Bull Sound Select series sure seems to be doing well here.
Ever since July's Erykah Badu-headlined coming-out affair for the monthly concert series, RBSS has featured monthly shows curated by Spune Productions and us here at Central Track — affairs that have brought enticing performers into intimate spaces at an affordable ticket price.
To date, these $3 shows have proven pretty damn successful, we'd say: The RBSS team has collectively brought Baths to Three Links, hosted Black Milk's Dallas debut at Dada, housed This Will Destroy You at Sons of Hermann Hall and, just a few weeks back, welcomed Small Black to the Prophet Bar.
And, all the while, the series has similarly showcased some of Dallas' top up-and-coming homegrown talents: Dustin Cavazos, Larry g(EE), Son of Stan; Ice Eater; Sam Lao; The Outfit, TX; Blue, The Misfit; DJ Sober; Yung Nation; New Fumes; Botany; Burning Hotels; and Cutter.
Now, we can confirm some exciting news: The Red Bull Sound Select series will continue on a monthly basis in Dallas throughout the entirety of 2014. Meaning? This $3 concert series isn't going anywhere: National touring acts will still be brought in to town at cost, and locals acts will continue to get highlighted along the way, their names being blasted out to the rest of the country as names worth knowing and, hopefully, booking. For what it's worth: That's already been the case for Larry g(EE), who was booked for a show in Portland this fall based on the strength of his July RBSS showcase.
But,, before the series kicks back off with $3 shows in January, we, Spune and Red Bull have another treat in store for area music fans as a thanks for all of the support thus far: On Thursday, December 12, at Trees, we'll be hosting a free performance from noted New Orleans rapper Curren$y. Yes, we said free.
The show will similarly feature performances from adored area rap acts A.Dd+ and -topic, two of the region's most exciting performers regardless of genre. Also, for good measure, we're bringing in Austin emcee Kydd Jones to round out the bill.
Here's the deal: While the show is indeed free to attend, you'll need to RSVP here to get in. As is the case with most shows of this nature, an RSVP is required to attend, but does not require entrance into the room; the show remains a first-come, first-served affair, in that regard.
So, long story short, you're gonna wanna RSVP — and fast. Then we'll see you at Trees on December 12. It'll be a great time, y'all. Trust.
RSVP for Dallas's December Red Bull Sound Select showcase featuring Curren$y, A.Dd+, -topic and Kydd Jones here.
