See Bad Suns Rising.
By definition, of course, trends come and go.
And while there are some we wish would stick around for the long haul, there are even more that we wish would hurry up and go the hell away.
A prime example of the latter? The Baja trend. Can someone please make that Forever 21-fueled infestation stop already?
For now, at least, that overwrought trend is in full force — my own steering wheel cover being no exception. Keep an eye out for it tonight and just try to keep a running count of just how many Dallasites you see rocking Baja prints like it's the '90s all over again.
Bad Suns at Cambridge Room
With the success of Bad Sun's debut EP, Transpose, the band's fan base has grown exponentially. We expect it'll only continue to do so after the release of its debut full-length, Language & Perspective, next month. That disc is a perfect reason to catch the band tonight in the smaller of House of Blues' stages before the mainstream turns them into just another boy band. Just try not to swoon too hard over lead singer/total babe Christo Bowman, ladies. He might just send you into “Cardiac Arrest.” See what I did there? — Chrissi Chetwood
Logic at House of Blues
If you're looking for something extremely genuine and real, Logic performs at The House of Blues for a tour with his Visionary Music Group labelmates QuESt and Castro. This appropriately-titled While You Wait tour is intended as a stopgap for fans who have waiting for Logic's EP of the same name to drop this spring. The EP, in turn, is meant to hold over fans who've been waiting a year-plus for the release of the rapper's debut LP, which will be released on Def Jam at some yet-to-be-determined point down the road. — Ashley Gongora
Road 2 Oddball at Addison Improv
While the Funny or Die folks haven't yet announced who would be succeeding Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords as the headliners of this fall's Oddball Festival, they're warming up audiences with this Brody Stevens-headlined mini comedy tour. — Cory Graves
Seahaven at Three Links
Seahaven basically completely reinvents itself with each new record. Meaning? There's a good chance even the band's most loyal fans won't dig its new album, Reverie Lagoon: Music for Escapism Only. Gone are the growly, hardcore vocals of frontman Kyle Soto, which defined the band's 2010 Ghost EP. So, too, are the emo tendencies from 2011's Winter Forever LP. The search for identity has the band meandering in a gentler territory with its most emotionally complex batch of tunes to date on its new album. You might want to stream Reverie Lagoon here so you know what you're getting yourself into. — CG
