Listen Up: Your Weekly Live Music Lineup for Jan. 21
Here’s your goal for this week: Attend a show every single night. “It’s too much!” I hear you, but consider the alternative of watching some Netflix reruns of “The Office” and it becomes an easy decision. Those are the only options, end of list.
Can’t Miss Shows
JON SPENCER & the HITmakers, Mind Spiders
Tuesday, January 22 at 7 PM | Club Dada
Head to Deep Ellum for a weekday show with underground rock legend Jon Spencer. He will be performing 12 new songs with his Hitmakers who include Bob Bert (Sonic Youth), Sam Coomes (Elliot Smith), and M.SORD (No Monster Club), along with Fort Worth’s own Mind Spiders as support.
Amanda Shires, Thomas Csorba
Thursday, January 24 at 7 PM | Kessler Theater
If you’ve been following Texas/Tennessee artist Shires for a while, then you know that her latest album of vivid (and insanely relatable) storylines is her finest work yet. And if you don’t, hear it for yourself at the Kessler.
Saturday, January 26 at 8 PM | Three Links
Durham’s performance has been called many things: alternative rock, southern gothic, revival punk, psycho blues, and Americana, to name a few. Whatever you want to label it, it’s something incredible to be witnessed.
