Indie music event Patio Sessions kicks off Thursday
Food trucks, outdoor music, and hipsters.
DOWNTOWN DALLAS As soon as the thermometer’s mercury begins to dip South, Dallasites emerge from their air conditioned solaces and start enjoying the outdoors once more.
One of the best ways to spend autumn outdoors is at the AT&T Performing Art Center’s annual Patio Sessions concert series.
The block of concerts, which take place each Thursday during September and October (weather permitting, of course), feature a bevvy of Dallas’ best local bands. The best part? Admission is free.
Besides the music, many of DFW's best-known food trucks will park their kitchens around the concert venue to provide much needed grub to the evening.
The concerts begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Arts District’s Sammons Park. The park is located directly outside the Winspear Opera House (that shiny red building, for out-of-state folks).
Farris, a Denton, Texas native, has worked with other artists such as David Burr.
Other bands include Bravo! Max and Kirby Brown on September 13, The Cush and Spook Easy on September 20, Smile Smile and Arielle on September 27, Vanessa Peters and Nicholas Altobelli on October 4, The Blurries with Zhora on October 11, and Air Review and Home by Hovercraft on October 18.
The series’ last show, which takes place on October 25, has yet to be announced.
