Concerts in Dallas-Fort Worth worth your watch: April 26-28
One in Dallas, one in Fort Worth, one in Denton.
It is the last weekend in April, which means the heat of the summer is just around the corner. Get out and enjoy the nice weather while you can; just make sure to see some live music while you are at it. It is going to be a sweaty summer.
Jessie Frye “Like a Light” official music video
An all-local show is going down on the green AstroTurf at Good Records in Dallas featuring Nicholas Altobelli, Bravo, Max!, and Jessie Frye. Altobelli is currently in the studio recording new material with producer Salim Nourallah for his forthcoming record, and Frye is working up some new tunes as well. Be ready, because a potential double dose of new music could be coming your way at the record store on Thursday night. Cross your fingers!
Indie rocker Ben Folds will put on a one-night-only show at Bass Hall with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra on Friday night. The singer/songwriter/pianist and judge on the vocal reality competition The Sing-Off will perform his re-worked indie pop rock tunes backed by a full orchestra -- something that the musician has done in the Dallas area, as well as all over the world, before. With such seasoned and talented musicians all on one stage, it is guaranteed to be a night of beautiful, quirky music.
Los Lonely Boys — “Heaven”
Spring in Dallas-Fort Worth means festivals are blossiming, ripe and full of sweet music. The Denton Arts & Jazz Festival brings musicians from near and far to share their music. The festival, which features art and food, happens all weekend long, but we think the best day to spend at the event will be Saturday. The headliner of the evening is Los Lonely Boys, but don’t wait until the sun sets before you make your way out there. The Grammy-award-winning One O’ Clock Lab Band from the University of North Texas will also be on hand for a rare free performance.
