Lots of action in Deep Ellum this weekend! This week we’ve got three pretty diverse picks for you – ranging from folk to hip hop, and all the way to indie pop.
Where are you headed this weekend?
Deep Ellum Big Folkin’ Festival 2012 at The Prophet Bar
Support: Mmm, lots. Ryan Thomas Becker, Parallel Play, Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Telegraph Canyon, One Red Cent, Bravo, Max!, The Roomsounds, The O’s, Kirby Brown, and many, many more!
Date: Saturday, March 31, 2012
Tickets: Advance $12 | Day of Show $15
Why: Started by Parralel Play’s Jeremy Drake and The Prophet Bar’s Joel Fruth, the first ever Deep Ellum Big Folkin’ Festival will 30 folk bands spread across five stages. If you’re even a small folk music fan, this is for you. Plus if you buy your ticket now, it’s only $12, which in this blogger’s opinion is a hell of a steal.
Final Friday Hip-Hop Night at LaGrange
Support: Bodega Bros. (Headkrack, Travii, Key Note), Bavu Blakes, Loose Cannons, Fort Nox, Chucky Sly, DJ Whiz T
Date: Friday, March 30, 2012
Why: Nice lineup of interesting hip hop and DJ music. Seems a bit of a departure from the typical LaGrange show, but we dig it.
Eisley at Granada Theater
Support: Christie Dupree / Bethan
Date: Sunday, April 1, 2012
Why: Indie pop outfit from Tyler, TX hitting up the Granada. Known for their storytelling and pop sensibilities, this show is one you won’t want to miss.
