Live music events in Dallas-Fort Worth, June 23-25
Ishi performs. Check 'em out now that lead female singer Taylor Rea is out of the band.
This week officially kicked off the summer season, which means the weather in Dallas-Fort Worth is going to get a lot hotter. So get yourself and your friends to a bar! There's music there.
Doug Burr “Should’ve Known” music video
In the tradition of musicians of old, three local singer/songwriters will share the stage at La Grange in Deep Ellum for a night of acoustical song swapping. Doug Burr, Glen Farris, and Danny Balis take part in what they call the “worried man song swap,” as the best singer/songwriters tend to do. Each will bring his own unique sound and tales that are sure to entertain you in an intimate evening of music and prose.

Now that two members of Ishi have left to pursue other musical endeavors, the band has garnered buzz as to how the remaining members will replace their former female lead singer. As band member John Mudd explained, there will not be a permanent female lead; the band hopes to have a few local songstresses fill in from time to time. The question remains: Will there be a female singer for the show on Friday night at Trees? Our bet is on singer/songwriter Becky Middleton. Former female lead Taylor Rea left behind big shoes to fill. Air Review, The Burning Hotels, and Lion Worship open.

103 Industrial Street

At Dan’s Silver Leaf in Denton, three bands who are a part of the folk music collective known as the Dallas Family Band bring the tunes to one of the college town’s most beloved musical establishments. Fox and the Bird, The Beaten Sea, and Spooky Folk will each perform their personal brand of indie folk-inspired melodies. Make sure you get there early enough to catch each band’s performance. You won't want to miss a moment.
Lola's in Fort Worth is going to get loud on Saturday night, as several notoriously noisy bands are going to turn it up to 11. Punk rockers Here Holy Spain and The Red 100’s will bring their ear-splitting, no excuses brand of rock to downtown Fort Worth. It's not for the faint of heart. Earplugs may be a good investment if you want to keep your auditory functions intact. War Party opens.
Dentonites in need of some musical stimulation should head to Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios, which features Saboteur, Bad Design, On After Dark, and Orange Peel Sunshine on Saturday. Make sure you check out the show’s poster designed by Emil Rapstine, a member of The Angelus. It'll be for sale at the show. Bonus!
