A diverse arraignment of local funk and dance music take over Dallas and Fort Worth, because hyper pop and hip-hop come in to finish the week.

Electric Tongues

Apr. 4, 8 p.m. | Three Links

Vibe out to our city’s freshest funk band. Over the past month, Electric Tongues has released new music and performed with fellow locals Deezie Brown and Coach Tev. The harmonious band, composed of Boy Jugo, Hunter Daniel, Judas James, and Stillwater Max, are the perfect accompaniment to a highly energetic and frantic Aries season. Ease into the first week of April with a groovy concert that supports local. Purchase tickets.

BOYBLK

Apr. 4, 10 p.m. | Curfew Bar

Dance music is Black music. Fort Worth’s DJ BOY BLK pays homage to the origins of the genre—especially its underground beginnings—during Monday night’s set at the aptly named weekly Meet Me Underground. Normally accompanied by fellow MMU DJ C.B. SMOOVE, BOY BLK takes the lead this evening. Expect four hours of dance music with a few surprises for long time attendees of MMU and first timers alike. If you miss tonight’s set, BOY BLK plays every Friday night at Cheapsteaks in Deep Ellum with DJ Kmor.

Snoop Dogg & Ice Cube

Apr. 9, 7 p.m. | Dos Equis Pavilion

I bet you $5 The D.O.C. will be in attendance. It is only right that the kings of West Coast gangsta rap stop in Dallas for their ‘Kings of The West’ tour. Dallas contributed to the development of the sub-genre, so we deserve an evening with some of the originators. Expect to hear a performance of their greatest hits with a few deep cuts packed in between. I would expect nothing else from two of the most well-known rappers and pop culture icons. Buy tickets.

Tech N9ne

Apr. 9, 8 p.m. | Amplified Live

There is only one Tech N9ne. The Kansas City rapper mastered a rapid-fire “chopper rap” style to set himself apart in a crowded genre. He hasn’t limited himself to rap, collaborating with artists better known for heavy metal, EDM, R&B, and much more. If his varied career is an indicator of his performance, prepare to be fired up. Purchase tickets.

Charli XCX & Baby Tate

Apr. 10, 7 p.m. | House of Blues

After years of being mistreated by her record label, Charli XCX is doing things her way. Last month, the British pop star released Crash, her first album since 2020’s quarantine work, How I’m Feeling Now. While fighting for her own artistry, Charli XCX wrote Top 40 singles for a variety of pop darlings. Atlanta-based Baby Tate joins her for this tour. She excels in freestyling, singing, producing, and rapping, all of which is delivered from the perspective of a confident, body-positive Black woman. The two musicians will bring an abundance of positive women energy to the House of Blues. Buy tickets.
