Going to concerts is one of my favorite things to do, and I imagine this is a shared sentiment among those at the University of Dallas, where live music is an integral part of almost every major student event. Lucky for us, Dallas attracts a number of artists who perform with a variety of sweet grooves. Here are some of the highlights coming up in our area this spring:
Lord Huron, Feb. 19, Trees: If you can swing tickets to this sold-out gig, color me green. It will be a fantastic show.
Marc Broussard, Feb. 20, The Kessler: I may be a bit biased because I’m a Louisiana native, but Broussard’s distinctive Delta blues resonates with the sound of home. If comfort food could play music, this would be it.
Imagine Dragons, Feb. 21, American Airlines: Not only will this concert be packed with people, but I have a feeling it will also be teeming with energy. As a nice addition, The Naked and Famous are opening.
Communist Daughter, March 11, Double Wide: It would be worth it to interrupt spring break and enjoy this Minnesotan indie outfit perform live.
London Grammar, March 18, Granada: LG’s debut album recently went platinum in the UK, and for a good reason.
Bastille, April 26, Toyota Stadium (Frisco): Bastille’s fame has exploded since the release of “Bad Blood” in 2013, and the showmanship that comes across in the group’s tracks and covers will undoubtedly make for a captivating show.
These are only some of the quality artists coming to the area this semester. Find your favorites, buy your tickets and enjoy the shows!
