AFTER LILITH COMETH DALLAS: The breathy sound of Sarah McLachlan’s ballads have been M.I.A. for nearly seven years. The Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter has been off the radar since the “Arms of an Angel” embraced the world. Her new album “Laws of Illusion” was released in June, with the first single “One Dream” serving as the official theme song of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. She just finished playing Lilith Fair 2010 and now the Canadian native kicks off her fall “Sarah and Friends” tour tonight in Dallas, encouraging interactive participation by answering audience questions throughout the performance and giving fans the opportunity to jump on stage. The laid back night of song begins at 8 p.m. at the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie.
BRACE YOURSELF FOR AN ATTACK: The electronic music of Massive Attack joins with the politically-infused music from Thievery Corporation at the Palladium Ballroom tonight at 8 p.m. Massive Attack is known for collecting dark beats to form a hypnotic sound popular in the club scene. While Thievery Corporation uses music as a form of “radio retaliation” with their thought-provoking lyrics. And how convienent -- Thievery Corporation performs just in time for midterm elections. See the two attract crowds in Dallas this Monday night. P.S. We talked to Tricky from Massive Attack last year -- click here to read all about it.
REQUIEM FOR A PROFESSOR: A memorial concert for Prof. Ronald L. Shirey is happening tonight at TCU’s Bass Performance Hall.
