Abraham Alexander

September 8, 6 p.m.| Downtown Cowtown at the Isis, Fort Worth

North Texan Abraham Alexander has made quite the name for himself since he released his album SEA/SONS this year. He has toured the country and garnered a very excited and loyal following back home, too. (Don’t miss Zac Crain’s profile of Alexander here.) He’ll be headlining EarthX Film’s Party for the Planet Friday, which will also include a series of short films. Get tickets

Flogging Molly

September 8, 7 p.m.| House of Blues

After 25 years, many bands slow down, but Celtic-punk group Flogging Molly are now on tour with their new album, Anthem. Known for their raucous shows, longtime fans can expect plenty of Irish-accented musical mayhem from tunes like “A Song of Liberty,” and “(Try) Keep the Man Down.” The Bronx will be joined by locals The Vandoliers as openers. Get tickets

Anthony Jeselnik

September 8| The Majestic Theatre

Known for his deadpan and often dark humor, comedian Anthony Jeselnik is touring on the heels of his successful Netflix special Fire in the Maternity Ward. He’s a frequent flier on Comedy Central roasts, and has also performed on The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He also cohosts the podcast The Jeselnik & Rosenthal Vanity Project. Get tickets

Lainey Wilson

September 8, 10 p.m.| Billy Bob’s Texas, Fort Worth

Lainey Wilson tried out at least a half dozen times for American Idol, but it was 2020’s “Things a Man Oughta Know” that put her on the map. Nowadays she can boast a star turn on Yellowstone and her sophomore album Bell Bottom Country, which hit the top 10 on the Billboard Country charts and helped her earn an Entertainer of the Year nod at the upcoming CMA Awards (along with nominations for Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year). Her show at Billy Bob’s Texas has been sold out for a good long while, but it looks like you can find tickets on the resale market. Get tickets (maybe)


September 8 and 9| American Airlines

Mana, the Mexican rock band that has frequently occupied the Billboard Latin charts for at least three decades, will head to American Airlines Center this weekend for two nights for their first tour since 2019. Expect to hear hits spanning their entire catalog, including “Rayando el Sol,”“Oye Mi Amor,” “Corazón Espinado,” and “¿Dónde Jugarán Los Niños?” Get tickets

5 Seconds of Summer

September 10, 8 p.m.| Toyota Music Factory, Irving

They are no longer a boy band, 5 Seconds of Summer says, and they’ve earned their bonafides by being one of the only bands in history to have their first three albums chart at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. In fact, each of their five albums—including the current 5SOS5—have landed in either the first or second spot.  Get tickets
