Barenaked Ladies

June 7, 7 p.m. | The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory

Turn back the hands of time with this 1990s Canadian alternative rock band. For 34 years, the four-member group has contributed to the cultural zeitgeist through song placements on Beverly Hills, 90210, Friends, King Of The Hill ,and the theme song for The Big Bang Theory. Outside of pop culture, the award-winning band has continued to release music to satisfy their multi-generational fanbase. Buy tickets.

The Boyz

June 8, 8 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre

As a member of The Wonder Girls generation, it’s good to see K-pop in the limelight. The Boyz bring their world-charting hits to North Texas. Last month, the 11-piece band released She’s The Boss, the band’s latest release since 2021’s Breaking Dawn. The mini-album serves as a precursor for fans eager to see the boy band in person; it announced a tour shortly after the project’s release. Dallas is one of the first stops, so download the album and get your voice ready. Get tickets.

Lupe Fiasco

June 10, 8 p.m. | Wild Acre Live

Chicago’s finest Lupe Fiasco celebrates the 15th anniversary of The Cool with a celebratory concert for longtime fans. The Grammy winner will perform the album in its entirety. At the time of its release, it received several “Best Of” list placements and influenced artists like J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar, who have emulated the album’s conceptual storytelling in their own releases. Purchase tickets.

Electric Tongues

June 11, 7 p.m. | Deep Ellum Art Co.

Support Dallas music y’all. Your favorite band’s favorite local band gathers Oak Cliff’s Los Beckleys and San Diego’s Los Shadows for a night of live music. Since their debut, Electric Tongues have attracted a fan base that is drawn to their retro psychedelic funk-pop sound. In Dallas, the band has collaborated with Coach Tev, Graham Malice, Deezie Brown, and many more local musicians. It’s a good night to pour back into the local music scene. Buy tickets.

Machine Gun Kelly

June 11, 8 p.m. | American Airlines Center

Fun fact! My alarm clock for freshmen year of college was “Wild Boy,” Machine Gun Kelly’s debut single with Waka Flocka Flame. In the early 2010s, MGK was prominent in the college hip-hop circuit. At first, he existed as a stark contrast to Asher Roth of “I Love College” fame. MGK’s aggressive, frantic lyricism proved a natural transition for his current iteration as a pop-punk star. The Cleveland musician cemented his claim to fame with Mainstream Sellout, produced by Travis Barker of Blink 182. No word on whether his fiancé Megan Fox will appear. Get tickets.


June 12, 7 p.m. | House of Blues

On Ghetto Gods, Earthgang gathers a collective of Atlanta’s brightest musicians to pay homage to the mecca of Black music. The duo exchange verses with rappers Future and Baby Tate, musician CeeLo Green, and Dreamville labelmate Ari Lennox. They all critique, discuss, and ponder the future of Atlanta. The album draws from the duo’s personal experience of living in Atlanta during the pandemic, the George Floyd uprisings, and the city’s return to a false sense of normalcy. Catch the duo before their tour takes them to Europe. Purchase tickets.
