Weekend Concert Series

There's a couple of great shows going on in Dallas this weekend, and you can bet I'll be at both.

Band of Horses @ the Palladium - Saturday night
This should be an excellent show, as these guys are making their first appearance in the Dallas area since blowing up in the indie music scene with their uplifting, spiritually soaring vocals and crunchy, Southern rock atmosphere. Here's a couple of my favorite tracks by the group:

Is There A Ghost? – mp3
The Funeral – mp3

Flogging Molly @ House of Blues – Sunday night
For anyone that knows me, the fact that I'm a lousy, drunk Irish mick should come as no surprise. Fittingly, Flogging Molly is a band that practically speaks my language. Playing a style of music that begs to be seen live, this seven piece Irish American punk band bring a swagger to the stage unlike no other. If you're not dancing, singing AND drinking till you puke during this show, then you must not have a pulse. That, or you're Italian. Here's a couple of favs:

Drunken Lullabies – mp3
Devil's Dance Floor – mp3
