Celebrate Opening Day At The Granada With White Denim.
Everything seems to be coming in waves this week. On Tuesday, everyone seemed to be watching movies. On Wednesday, everyone seemed to be focused on food. Tonight, everyone seems to have music on their mind. There are great shows all across town tonight, with tons of big name local talents playing (see: The Toadies and White Denim). There are even a couple of free outdoor shows in the Arts District and at Mockingbird Station.
White Denim at Granada Theater
The Austin-based power trio draws influence from all over the map, from jazz and funk to country and punk. And even though it's not technically until Friday, The Granada is celebrating opening day for the Texas Rangers tonight, meaning folks who wear Rangers' gear to the show will have chances to win tickets to upcoming Granada shows — even ones that have already sold out. Play ball!
The Toadies at Rockin Rodeo
It's been roughly 18 months since the iconic local rock band The Toadies has performed at Rockin Rodeo in Denton. Though it may be the largest venue in the Little d, Rockin Rodeo still makes a pretty intimate spot to catch a band like The Toadies. Local punks Sealion and garage-rockers The Phuss (whose new disc was produced by Vaden Todd Lewis of The Toadies) open this stellar all-local bill.
Patio Sessions at AT&T Performing Arts Center
During this brief window where the weather is too gorgeous to stay inside — and just before it gets to unbearable to even think about going outdoors — folks around town will find just about every reason imaginable to hang out on patios, from day-drinking margaritas to watching bands perform in the open air. Calhoun and Madison King will perform live sets this evening at Sammons Park in the Arts District. Attendees are allowed to bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages to the event.
Mint Condition at House of Blues
Most known for early '90s hits “Breakin' My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)” and “What Kind of Man Would I Be,” Mint Condition's considered one of the last self-contained R&B bands going. They play the House of Blues tonight, showing how they've lasted over 20 years in the biz.
Mockingbird Station Spring Concert Series
Alt-country singer-songwriter Greg Reichel marks the third installment in Mockingbird Station's semimonthly concert series. The performances take place on the mezzanine level in front of the Angelika.
