Here’s Who Is Coming to Dallas This Week: November 8

This week's concerts include Tame Impala, Kaytranada, Karol G, and local superstar comedians B. Simone, Rickey Smiley, and more.

Alexander 23

Nov.9, 8 p.m. | House of Blues

If Gen Z queen Olivia Rodrigo says Alexander 23 is the “coolest, most talented dude I know,” then it must be true. Alexander 23, whose real name is Alexander Glantz, reached TikTok success for “IDK You Yet.” Buy tickets to witness the heartfelt, singer-songwriter in person.

Tame Impala 

Nov. 9, 8 p.m. | American Airlines Center

Remember when MySpace was a digital hub for music discovery? That’s where I found Tame Impala, which like many of their peers of the mid-2010s blended the psychedelic rock styles of the ’70s with chillwave, a genre that smashed together psych rock, indie pop, disco, and rap. A decade and half later, the band continues to inspire generations of young people—playing venues the size of the Granada is history. Get tickets.

Kaytranada

Nov. 11, 8 p.m. | South Side Ballroom

Kaytranada, the chart-topping, record-breaking, Grammy-award winning electronic DJ, brings his musical excellence to South Side Ballroom. Whether you found Kaytranada on SoundCloud or on a playlist, the Haitian Canadian DJ is one of the most influential musicians of his generation. Buy tickets for a night of vibes.

Stacey Abrams

Nov. 10, 7:30 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre

Stacey Abrams for President (lol). Regardless of political affiliation, Abrams’ perspective on voting rights, social change, and the transformation of Southern and American politics is worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize, which she was nominated for earlier this year. Reserve seats for a thoughtful night of political education.

Karol G

Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre

Get tickets for Karol G’s Dallas stop to party with the Latin Grammy Award winner. For those unfamiliar with the Colombian singer, she is an international sensation, so it’s time to get with the program.

LIT AF Tour Hosted by Martin Lawrence 

Nov. 12, 7:30 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre

If you grew up on Rickey Smiley’s prank phone calls before school on K104, this one is for you. Martin Lawrence’s LIT AF tour features Smiley as well as local comedian turned superstar B. Simone, Donnell Rawlings, DeRay Davis, and more. Purchase seats.

Alina Baraz

Nov. 14, 7 p.m. | House of Blues

Cuffing season is fast upon us! If you have a potential boo in your life or are trying to make it official before the upcoming holiday season, purchase tickets to Alina Baraz for an autumn date night.
