Concert Alert: The Lonely Forest, Tonight! @ Club Dada

14 Mar

Quick note to pass along, another late concert notice, but do yourself a favor and check out The Lonely Forest tonight at Club Dada. The Washington State based band is making a swim through Dallas on their way to Austin for SXSW, and it would be great if Dallas can show them some love.

No excuses! The band is great, the cover is cheap ($8), the venue is solid, beer selection is good and when I visited Club Dada last week I was pleasantly surprised how nice everyone working there was. They were genuinely grateful for the patronage. Help keep Authentic places in Dallas open and our music scene growing by going to concerts like tonight, you’ll come away a Lonely Forest fan.

Also, come back tomorrow and get the details for Authentic Dallas’ SXSW 2011 plans.

Local Band Alert: “The Hope Trust”, Tonight!

4 Mar

Good Local Stuff

VERY late notice, but I wanted to pass along that Authentic Dallas will be at Club Dada in Deep Ellum tonight for The Hope Trust Dallas CD Release party.  I heard these guys on KXT 91.7 a week or two ago and have been very impressed with the new album, Light Can’t Escape (preview entire record at this link).

Doors open tonight at 8, first band goes on at 9pm and The Hope Trust is scheduled to take the stage at 11pm.  Other bands performing tonight in order of appearance include: Sloan Automatic (9pm), Lo Fi Chorus (10pm), and Here, In Arms (12am)

If you can’t make it tonight, suppot a local band and record store and pick up the new album at Good Records on Lower Greenville.

You also have a chance to catch them next week in Denton at the 35 Conferette on Thursday March, 10 at “The lab” at 10:50 (I assume it is pm). At this time, Authentic Dallas will not be at this years 35 Conferette as we are saving our energy for SxSW in two weeks (more on this later), but we won’t turn down a free wristband if anyone has a hookup.

Enjoy the Show!

Band Alert: Local Natives

20 Jul

I’m going to go off topic for a second, but I saw this band in Dallas a few months ago (at an authentic local music venue no less, Sons of Hermann Hall), so that’s my Dallas tie in…

If you start to follow this blog regularly, it will become apparent that I have two main hobbies/passions; sports and music.  And it just so happens one of the best bands going right now is Local Natives out of Silverlake, CA.  They will be returning to Dallas on October 6th to play the House of Blues (not so authentic), so get your tickets now as they had to change the venue when the Local Natives played Dallas in April because demand was so great.

If you’re not familiar, or you’re like me and just can’t wait, get a taste below.  Also, I linked to a few posts about the band from the best music blog on the web, Harmon Drive:
