Here’s Who’s Coming to Dallas This Week: October 19

This week's concerts include Isaiah Rashad, Anthony Hamilton, Jonas Brothers, Machine Gun Kelly, and The Millennium Tour.

Isaiah Rashad

Oct. 20, 8 p.m. | The South Side Ballroom

Isaiah Rashad has a soft spot for women in Dallas. Earlier this year, the Chattanooga rapper shouted out his love for Dallas women: He called us a national treasure, among many other things, before listing his adoration for women in his hometown and Miami (of course) in 2021’s “Slow Motion Freestyle.” The freestyle, a precursor to The House Is Burning, his highly acclaimed studio return, signified the resurgence of the rapper and his interpolation of the Southern hip-hop sound with features from Memphis’ Duke Duece and a sample of Louisiana’s Da Entourage “Bunny Hop.” The TDE rapper stops at The South Side Ballroom with FRVRFRIDAY  for his Lil Sunny’s Awesome Vacation tour.

Anthony Hamilton

Oct. 21, 8 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre

When Anthony Hamilton’s breakout single “Charlene” released in 2003, my mama described his sound as “grown folks music.” A colloquial euphemism used by Black parents to distance their children away from soulful love songs. Eighteen years later, I am, now “grown enough” to understand Hamilton’s cries and promises of love. The neo-soul singer-songwriter is joined by a roster of R&B’s greats—Tank, Alex Isley, and J. Brown—at Texas Trust CU Theatre for his Love and Lust Tour.

The Jonas Brothers

Oct. 22, 7 p.m. | Dos Equis Pavilion

It’s 2005. I’m preparing for a day of elementary school as the static of my childhood radio blasts the latest Jonas Brothers hit on Radio Disney. Yes, I was an avid Radio Disney-listening, Limited Too-wearing pre-teen. This concert is specifically for the young women of my generation who have full-time jobs, but want to relive the glory days of blissful adolescence.

The Millennium Tour

Oct.22, 8 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre

Omarion, Bow Wow, Ashanti, Pretty Ricky, Soulja Boy, Lloyd, Ying Yang Twins, Sammie. That’s the ’graph.

I joke. But, where else can you witness the hottest stars of BET’s 106 & Park in one concert? This is the Avengers: Endgame of early-to-mid-’00s hip-hop/R&B. Each artist dominated pop culture and music for a collective time in the new millennium. This is the sonic sound many emergent musicians attempt to copy (or sample), but unsuccessfully fail. Return back to the glory days of FUBU, Rocawear, jersey dresses, and extra large tall tees for this weekend’s concert.

Machine Gun Kelly

Oct. 24, 8:30 p.m. | The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory

Before he was Megan Fox’s boyfriend, Machine Gun Kelly was a rapper from Cleveland. Specifically, he was a member of XXL‘s 2012 Freshmen Class before his pivot into acting and pop punk. Don’t miss your opportunity to witness the new age rock star in action at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory for his Tickets to My Downfall tour. A few weeks ago, I watched the rock musician climb up one of the highest poles during his Austin City Limits set. I think he would make Tommy Lee and the provocative rock stars of old very proud.
