2 Chainz @ South Side Ballroom

Posted by    |    March 13th, 2014 at 3:39 pm

Last week at South By Southwest, Def Jam Records celebrated its 30th anniversary at Stubbs BBQ. 2 Chainz was among the performers there, which also included Pusha T and YG. Tonight, 2 Chainz is performing again for everyone in Dallas who missed out on the SXSW action. He’ll be at South Side Ballroom with August Alsina opening for him at 8:00. Don’t miss it!

At the age of sixteen, Lorde blessed us with her debut EP, The Love Club. That was 2012, and since then, she’s released her debut album, Pure HeroinLorde’s music is dance-inducing, a little dark, and definitely fresh. I’ve never seen her live, but judging by the live recordings I’ve watched repeatedly on YouTube, she puts on a pretty great show. If you’re one of the lucky people who snatched up tickets to tonight’s sold out show at Gilley’s South Side Ballroom, I deeply envy you. I would ask you to post as many photos, videos, and updates to Twitter and Instagram as possible during the performance, but the jealousy may overwhelm me, and I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the magic on stage. Check in to Gilley’s on Facebook, let all your friends post their jealous comments, take one photo to capture the memory, and then just put your phone away and take it all in.

Last Friday, Pixies performed at Gilley’s South Side Ballroom. If you  missed it like I did, check out this playlist of the full Pixies set list from Friday (with the exception of Silver Snail, which is not on Spotify but was played between Nimrod’s Son and Ed Is Dead). I’m sad to have missed the show, but at least this playlist includes co-founder Kim Deal, who left the band in June of last year. “No Kim, No Deal” is a new motto for die-hard fans of the band’s former bassist and backing vocalist. On the bright side, she’s still the sole continual member of The Breeders, formed in 1990, whose song Off You was just featured in Spike Jonze’s spectacular Oscar-winning movie Her.  I’m hoping The Breeders come to South Dallas soon!

CVRCHES Brings Synthopop to Gilley’s South Side Ballroom, Saturday, Nov. 23rd. BASECAMP is Opening Act!

c5db3e3f1914182f5d4a5b5741b5a4d3One of this year’s biggest buzz bands will be lighting up the South Side Ballroom stage this Saturday!  CHVRCHES (pronounced “churches”), is a Scottish synthopop trio whose unique electronic sound has been described as “a hurricane of kinetic pop energy”.  The band’s first studio album, The Bones of What You Believe, debuted in September and was immediately heralded by many as one of 2013’s best albums. The band won Best Developing Non-U.S. Act at SXSW earlier this year and made their U.S. TV debut in July on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and performed two songs from their album last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Mother We Share and Lies, their soon to be released new single.  Not only does CVRCHES master the bass-heavy electronic dance music, but infuses strong, meaningful lyrics, sung hypnotically by lead vocalist, Lauren Mayberry.  CVRCHES’ light show is equally enticing described as “pure eye candy.  A swirling, pulsating mix of colors that is perfectly in time with the constantly shifting tempos.”

As if CVRCHES isn’t enough, BASECAMP is the opening act!  This Nashville-based trio’s recently released EP, Emmanuel, is reaping critical acclaim for its unique artistry of marrying haunting R&B vocals with meaningful lyrics and electronic stage production.  With this as BASECAMP’s Dallas debut, be one of the first to see what many are saying is the next groundbreaking style in music!

Imagine Dragons Play South Side Ballroom this Friday AND Saturday

Posted by    |    September 27th, 2013 at 7:12 pm


This weekend is going to be a good weekend. How do I know? Because not only is the Texas State Fair Kicking off today but incase you didn’t see it on,  tonight is the first of two shows Imagine Dragons will be playing at South Side Ballroom. That’s right Imagine Dragons are playing not one but TWO shows in Dallas this weekend. I think this band’s entry into the popular music scene could be described as explosive to say the least. With only a few synth-pop inspired EPs  and one full length album, Night Visions, this band is ruling the radio with with their hit Radioactive. Catch their small shows now because next time they come back around they’ll probably be packing the American Airlines Center.

Posted by    |    September 20th, 2013 at 8:20 pm

This October The National and Tame Impala will be sharing a stage at South Side Ballroom, and with both bands having new albums out fans will be getting night full of new material. While they both fall under the indie music category each band brings a different mood to their music. The National have a more love lorn tone to their sound and lyrics that you can hear on their newest single entitled Sea Of Love off their newest album Trouble Will Find Me.


While Tame Impala will keep the crowd moving with their “psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock” songs from their latest record Lonerism, making sure everyone leaves feeling good and groovy.
