Live music events in Dallas-Fort Worth, December 8-11
We dig the Larry g(EE) show on Friday night.
Don’t stay inside all bundled up as you hide from the bitter cold that winter brings this weekend! There is live music out there just waiting to warm you up.
Denton indie rock duo RTB2 will make its way to Dallas for an intimate performance at The Common Table in Uptown. Local promoter, label, and booking company Spune has recently been put in charge of booking the bands each Thursday night at Common Table, and they have yet to disappoint. Be sure to try the restaurant's huge craft beer selection.
Larry g(EE) — “Yo Mama”
At the Prophet Bar in Deep Ellum, Larry g(EE) celebrates the release of his debut EP, Weekends. Get ready to dance as the man fills the venue with his hybrid of Motown, soul, and gospel. Along with g(EE), husband and wife electronic rap duo Weekend Hustler performs their hot, new song “Sexycalifragilistic-expialidopeness,” as well as a few other tracks that are guaranteed to get you moving. Singer/songwriter Kirby Brown opens. Make sure you stay late for the after party featuring special guest DJ INZO.
The Polyphonic Spree — “Light & Day” (Alternate Version)
The holidays are just around the corner, and the Polyphonic Spree has a special Christmas celebration at the Lakewood Theater. For the band’s 9th annual holiday extravaganza, they will spend the first set singing some whimsical and traditional yuletide tunes. For the second set, the band will perform the tracks that have earned them quite the cult following. The all-girl tween rocker group We’re Not Dudes, schooled at the Dallas School of Rock, will light up the stage, as well as the Syncopated Ladies dance troupe. The event will feature a petting zoo, photos with Santa, real reindeer, costumed characters, and snow. Yes, snow. All the band asks is that you bring canned food for the North Texas Food Bank or a new toy to donate to Toys For Tots.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra Winter Tour
It's that time of year for Trans-Siberian Orchestra to make its annual stop at the American Airlines Center. The shows, which are at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, promise to be full of epic rock operas, holiday standards with a progressive metal twist, and lasers and pyrotechnics. Tickets are going fast.
