JAY TO Z: Jay-Z's already back in Dallas after the All Star weekend bashes? Even a "neat" hang with Jerry Jones can't run the guy off. He's just a connoisseur of all things good times. Catch him with Young Jeezy at American Airlines tonight. Tickets start at $49. 7PM.
STILL SOLID: Evan Dando of the Lemonheads is still at it after two decades, writing (composing) songs like a (comparitively) wet-nosed, indie-rockin' Leonard Cohen. He plays an intimate show at The Prophet Bar tonight with Pale Horse, Robin Lore and Danny Swaim. Tickets start at $12. 7:30PM.
IN THE EFFECTS: North Texas ex-pat Lyle Mays builds a treacherous but definitely scalable bridge between lovers of ambient rock -- maybe even house -- and jazz. If you disagree, venture a listen at the third installment of the UNT Jazz Artist Series: Eight Nights of Jazz at Bass Performance Hall at McDavid Studio where he'll surely meet other alums of UNT's One O'Clock Lab Band. Tickets are $20. 7:30PM.
