Get By With Talib Kweli At Trees, Stay Up All Night At The Pavilion At Toyota Music Factory And Play It Right With Sylvan Esso At The Bomb Factory.
This week. local DJ Donovan Jones — or Black Taffy as he is known by most — will be kicking off his new musical series with a very special Black Panther-themed happening.
Jones will be kicking off his chopped and screwed monthly series at Independent Bar & Kitchen and Off The Record in Fort Worth by playing chopped and screwed versions of the tracks from the Black Panther soundtrack.
“My main goal is to really freak whatever it is that I’m playing,” Jones told us last week. “Thankfully, when people see that it is happening live, there has been a lot of positive response.”
So yeah, that should be very rad. Of course, that’s just one of the very cool things going on in Dallas this week, as you can see from the full list of things to do throughout the week. So read up and plan accordingly, Dallas.
