Let's get these featured shows out with a bang! Lots of Rock and Jam happening this week, take a look:
Jam it up on Sunday with KatsüK at Sundown at Granada. Giving a Free Jam Band performance, Katsuk describes their sound as "an earth-punk-folk-rock group creating deeply impact-full works of art with emotive substance, both timeless and without border." As with many that fit 'Jam Band' status, they fuse many musical styles together. More info on the show can be found here.
Down to Deep Ellum on Monday for Kurt Vile, and the Violaters playing a show at Trees. A (bordering on Indie) Rock band from Philly, The Violaters draw influence from Psychedellic, Classic, and Garage Band Rock. More info on their show can be located here.
After putting out 5 albums since their conception in 2003, The Deadstring Brothers, a Detroit based Country/Rock Band that plays a style reminiscent of the Rolling Stones' Exile On Main Street. Show is at Lola's, more info can be found here.
For all you Hard rockers out there, Wednesday is the day for you. The Collective (Discard the Weak) plays at O'reilly's following the release of their new album, Discard the Weak. Below is a tune off that album, The Collective...Confused yet? Whatever they name their songs, band, and albums, their show info can be found here.
Eminence Ensemble, Boulder based Jam band will be holding a Free show at Sundown at Granada. I particularly like this video because the sax player has animal ears and a tail. Show info is here.
Gorilla Vs Bear, Dallas based music Blog, voted one of the best by Rolling Stone, will be hosting an event at the Granada. The line up includes Danny Brown, Blue Hawaii, HAERTS, Empress Of, & Booty Fade. More show info can be found here.
And on Saturday, we have Austin based Folk Rock star, Bob Schneider playing at the Granada. Putting out 15+ solo albums, Schneider has been playing shows since the early 1990's. His music has appeared on many movie soundtracks, and he has a plethora of Music awards. More info on the show can be found here.
So there you have it, another round of featured shows to go and see in DFW. We strive to make your music experince as knowledgeable, entertaining, and musical as possible. Like I have mentioned, I have tried to not focus on any specific musical genre, however musical prefrences give you a biased as to what to cover. That being said, we are still looking for interested contributers, whether writers, photographers, videographers... Join a team of people who love music, and want to make sure the good folks of DFW have plenty to choose from! Have a great week, and keep jammin' my friends!
