Fort Worth Music Festival and Conference

Through March 2| Fort Worth Stockyards
After the success of last year’s inaugural event, the Fort Worth Music Festival and Conference returns to the Stockyards. In addition to live music, the event offers panel discussions and speakers across seven venues. More than 40 artists will play, including Fort Worth’s Louie Thesinger and Abraham Alexander, Angel White, William Clark Green, Band of Heathens, Ben Kweller, Futurebirds, Radney Foster, Shinyribs, The Nude Party, Them Dirty Roses, Uncle Lucius, and Whitey Morgan and the 78s.

First Friday in Deep Ellum 

March 1, 5 p.m.| Deep Ellum
March 1 is National Day of Unplugging (unless you’re a journalist in Dallas, sorry), and since it coincides with First Friday in Deep Ellum, it’s the adopted theme of the evening. Catch an acoustic show at Deep Ellum Plaza with Leah Lane of Rosegarden Funeral Party at 6, then walk the neighborhood to catch opportunities to interact with art, more live music, shopping, and dining. Artist Frank Campagna is giving another Murals and Margaritas tour, which leaves his Kettle Art (2650 Main St.) at 6 p.m. Tickets are here.

Indigo Girls

March 1, 7:30 p.m.| Longhorn Ballroom
The Indigo Girls have had a top 40 hit in the Billboard 200 each decade from the 1980s to the 2010s, and one of their biggest hits (“Closer to Fine”) gained a new audience this summer thanks to the Barbie movie. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are touring in support of their newest album, Look Long, one of their 16 studio albums since they released their major label debut in 1989. A dollar of every ticket goes to organizations promoting equity for all. Kristy Lee opens.

Olivia Rodrigo

March 1, 7:30 p.m.| American Airlines Center
If you haven’t gotten tickets to see the Dallas stop of Olivia Rodrigo’s Guts tour, the good news is you can find them in the resale market. The bad news is they’re more than $400. The former Disney Channel star made waves with her 2020 debut, Sour, and the follow-up, Guts, took home a People’s Choice Award for Album of the Year. Last week, Rodrigo announced that a portion of the ticket sales on her world tour will go to initiatives that support equity for women and girls. In North America, the proceeds will go to support abortion funds that defray the costs of traveling to get an abortion.

Ronny Chieng

March 2, 7 p.m.| Majestic Theatre
Standup comedian and Daily Show correspondent Ronny Chieng’s Majestic Theatre show is sold out, but at last look, nine tickets were available on StubHub. He’s also starred in two Netflix specials and played roles in Crazy Rich Asians, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Joy Ride.

Jenny Lewis

March 2, 8 p.m.| South Side Music Hall
Readers of a certain vintage will first recognize Jenny Lewis from the movies Troop Beverly Hills or The Wizard. But for the past few decades, Lewis has fronted pretty important rock bands like Rilo Kiley and The Postal Service while supporting her solo career. She’s on tour now for the second leg of her Joy’all tour.
