Concerts in Dallas-Fort Worth worth your watch: April 12-14
Saturday night, you've got The Reverent Horton Heat at Prophet, or a killer concert series at the Modern in Fort Worth.
You made it through Easter weekend without eating too many chocolate bunnies and Cadbury eggs. Now it's time to celebrate with some live music and drinks.
The Boxer Rebellion — “If You Run”
London-based indie band The Boxer Rebellion will finally make their way to Dallas to perform at Club Dada in Deep Ellum on Thursday night. The band had to cancel their scheduled appearance a few months ago, but they're back in support of their most recent release, The Cold Still. You may recognize these guys from their silver screen debut in the Drew Barrymore/Justin Long romantic comedy Going The Distance, in which their tunes were prominently featured.
Spoon — “The Underdog”
The Granada Theater hosts another sold-out show when Austin indie rockers Spoon make a stop in Dallas on their special, three-date Texas tour. Although the band hasn’t released a record since 2010, that hasn’t stopped fans from snatching up tickets to the hottest show in town. Perhaps the guys have a few new songs in their repertoire that they intend to debut just for this little tour. Fellow Austin indie band A Giant Dog opens for the famed rockers.
The final show of The Reverend Horton Heat’s four-date tour of DFW ends on Saturday night at The Prophet Bar in Deep Ellum, and The Rev intends to make the performance much like it was back in the old days when he used to play at the original Prophet Bar. He has already announced some of the tunes he will perform, and promises to add more from that era. The Rev will also play double duty, as he opens the show with his groovy jazz tunes under the moniker Reverend Organdrum. Although he will be playing shows in Denton and Dallas a few days prior, we think this particular performance at Prophet will be one not to miss.
- Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
3200 Darnell Street
Fort Worth, TX
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth has quite the line up for their Modern Til’ Midnight concert series on Saturday night as some of the hottest bands in Dallas-Fort Worth rock the night away outside against the Modern’s beautiful reflection pond. School of Seven Bells, Air Review, Calhoun, The Angelus, and Skeleton Coast will shut the museum down for a night of music and libations. You can also enjoy special gallery activities, films, and food.
