Live music events in Dallas-Fort Worth, July 6-8
Just about every band has new music to play for you.
Local music is for lovers. Get out there and show your love for local music this weekend.
Centro-Matic — “Iso-Residue”
Local music darling Sarah Jaffe will return to her former haunt, where she used to be a bartender, Dan’s Silver Leaf in Denton. Jaffe has had the local music scene in the palms of her hands since the release of her highly acclaimed album, Suburban Nature, and will be opening for fellow Denton music makers Centro-Matic. The band performs tracks from their recently-released album, Candidate Waltz. Now that the A-Train has finally made its way to Denton, this show would be a great excuse to try it out.
Pale Horse — “Pain”
While Ryan Hamilton waits for the release of People On Vacation’s debut and works on the follow up to Smile Smile’s Truth On Tape, he has found a way to keep himself busy: a solo project. With his first solo performance under his belt, Hamilton is ready to take on another. This time it will be at City Tavern in Dallas, and he has brought along a few friends for the ride: fellow singer/songwriter Nicholas Altobelli and Pale Horse – who happen to have their first release, "Songs from the Backroom," available for download for free here.
At Poor David’s Pub, North of Autumn will perform songs from their debut record, Confluence. Although the tracks from their debut are impressive, we hear that the band does a pretty awesome cover of The Raconteurs' “Level.”
Alt-country outfit with a penchant for shenanigans, Boys Named Sue, will play their brand of country music at Lee Harvey’s. This place is perfect for an outdoor show, so if the boys are playing outside, you best to grab a cold one (or three).
Board the A-Train to Denton if you haven't already.
RTB2 - “Goon”
Item One: At Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studio, RTB2, Monestery, Diamond Age, and Smoke and Feathers play. Expect to hear new music from RTB2, like their new single “Goon,” which KXT and The Local Edge play frequently.
Item Two: Things are going to get loud at Hailey’s as The House Harkonnen, The Phuss, Trebuchet, The Spectacle, and Historic Stork perform for the Do It For Records Showcase. New songs will definitely be performed by The Phuss and Trebuchet since both bands recently released a double EP together. Get ready to be rocked.
