The Smashing Pumpkins

Wednesday, July 18
American Airlines Center
Get tickets here.

Original members James Iha, Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin return to The Smashing Pumpkins to kick off a summer tour. For this reunion tour, you can hear them delve into their first few albums, take the band back to its roots and perform their new single, “Solara.” This new single is great news for fans, but the reunion tour making a stop at the American Airlines Center is even better.


’til Midnight At The Nasher: Julianna Barwick and Mary Lattimore

Friday, July 20
Nasher Sculpture Center

Take an evening, tune in to some music and tune out the stress. These two artists combine the ancient melodies of the harp and voice with contemporary technology to develop a distinct form of music for their audiences to delight in. This outdoor concert is free at the Nasher Sculpture Center.


KXT 91.7 Presents Lake Street Dive

Friday, July 20 
The Bomb Factory
Get tickets here.

Bringing authenticity to the stage isn’t something new for Lake Street Dive. Formed in the early 2000s, the distinct jazz-pop-R&B sound of the group has helped the band climb the charts and be featured on shows like The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Conan. Their latest album, Free Yourself Up, sees the band’s latest approach to their mix of tunes. The show is sold out, which could be a testament to their melodies.


Counting Crows

Tuesday, July 24 
The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory
Get tickets here. 

In honor of making music for 25 years, Counting Crows has embarked on a tour across North America to celebrate – and we’re lucky one of those summer shows is right here in Irving. With seven studio albums and millions of copies sold around the world, Counting Crows brings a mix of old and new tunes to the stage for all to listen. It seems like just yesterday the band released August and Everything After, but I guess time flies when you’re enjoying the music!


KXT 91.7 Presents Beach House

Monday, July 30 
The Bomb Factory
Get tickets here.

Pop duo Beach House makes its way to Dallas for a dream-like performance promoting their latest album titled 7. The Baltimore-based group is frequently spun on KXT, so it’s time to check them out live and witness the enchanting beasts for yourself. They’ll be at the Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum — a fitting location for their ambient genre.
