Concerts this Week in North Texas

10 funk-driven hands.

5 southern show-stoppers.

2 Dallas indie rockers.

1 familiar satirist.


That’s your North Texas concert calendar by the numbers, folks. But, we’ll elaborate…


Tuesday, August 18

Since garnering traction in the early 2010’s, Alabama Shakes has not only earned three Grammy nominations, but has become one of the most celebrated live acts in the world. Ahem, for example…

You can see these 5 southern rockers, plus very special guests Drive-by-Truckers, on Tuesday, Aug. 18 at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie. Tickets HERE.

Friday, August 21

Does this artist need an introduction? Probably not. So here’s this classic for your viewing pleasure:

“Weird Al” Yankovic  performs at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie on Friday, August 21. Tickets HERE.

But if “free admission” is more your style, head over to the Nasher Sculpture Center on Friday night for ’til Midnight at the Nasher, featuring a performance by Dallas-based TEAM and a screening of The LEGO Movie.TEAM_Edited

Saturday, August 22

Then on Saturday, KXT’s very own Paul Slavens and his band Ten Hands will be performing at Shipping & Receiving Bar in Fort Worth. This funk-rock band is known for their energetic and fun live shows, so it’s surely not one to be missed – tickets HERE.
