JOHNNYSWIM

Apr. 19, 7 p.m. | Southside Ballroom

For years, this singer-songwriter husband and wife duo have shared their most intimate moments with the world. From getting married, entering into parenthood, and working with Chip and Joanna Gaines, the couple has ascended from coffee shop darling to multi-hyphenate creatives in their own right. Nevertheless, the heart of their brand is still rooted in their shared love of music. The couple is on tour for JOHNNYSWIM, their latest studio album, which features a collaboration with Houstonian (and UNT alum) Tobe Nwigwe. Buy tickets.

The Record Company

Apr. 21, 7 p.m. | The Cambridge Room

American rock is truly alive. In 2016, the Los Angeles band achieved mainstream success with a trio of hits that resulted in an abundance of festival and television appearances. Despite the fame, the trio of musicians has maintained a down home, intimate feel in the band’s music. This week’s concert is standing room only, so put on comfortable shoes and vibe out to the contemporary rock n’ roll. Get tickets.

Tai Verdes

Apr. 23, 7 p.m. | The Echo Lounge & Music Hall

Virality does not always equate to longevity. But, a new generation of musicians—particularly contemporaries like Cardi B and Doja Cat—have developed a way to capitalize on the social media frenzy while building a sustainable career. The same could be said about musician Tai Verdes. Although Verdes won MTV’s Are You The One? in 2016, the reality TV series didn’t land him a record deal. TikTok did. In June 2020, Verdes released “Stuck in the Middle” on the platform. A month later, the song reached #1 on Spotify’s U.S. Viral Charts. Now, the musician is on tour for LAst dAy oN EaRTh, his latest studio album. Purchase tickets.

RickyRay & The Goons, DreamieCloud, DJ Big Texan, Third Coast Boyz

Apr. 23, 2 p.m. | Camp Bishop, 407 W. 10th Street

Think Coachella, but Oak Cliff. Camp Bishop transforms into an open air market of local small businesses, food vendors, and music. Jam out to indie pop band Ricky Ray & The Goons as you chomp away on a crispy al pastor quesadilla from Ninos Tacos & Taquizas. Or unwind with a massage from Her Signature Massage to the pop melodies of DreamieCloud. Between S.I.G., DJ Big Texican, Third Coast Boyz, and Los Hijos De Muñoz, you will leave with a new favorite Oak Cliff band. RSVP.

Paradise

Apr. 24, 8 p.m. | Tiny Victories

Paradise turns 1! The monthly dance party celebrates 12 months with an anniversary blowout. Of course, DJ Sober will be on the 1s and 2s with Mutemor and Storm of the Faded Deejays Collective. Tacos La Gloria, a neighborhood favorite that recently relocated from a truck outside Tyler Station to its own brick and mortar, will provide late night bites for the partying crowd. This month’s party will integrate Web 3 perks. Which means: Drug Receipts NFT holders get free drinks all night. Expect more surprises for those who decide to attend. Wear your finest fit for a chance to be photographed by Oscar Lozanda and Sober, just in time for the highly anticipated yearbook release.
