Can't get away for the annual Austin City Limits festivities? No need. We've built a list of more than 30 bands stopping through Dallas-Fort Worth before or after this year's festival. Consider this list your guide to a customized staycation with solid tunes.
But which are the best ACL-in-DFW concerts? Here are four favorites.
Joseph: Oct. 8 at Trees in Dallas
The folksy, hometown feel of the songs written and sung by these three sisters have more than just a kindred quality. Their stirring words and pitch-perfect harmonies exude a passion that seems rare in today's indie scene.
Ryan Adams: Oct. 11 at Irving Music Factory
Ryan Adams is an eloquent musician fueled by years of heartbreak, angsty lyrics and interpretive covers -- including his take on Taylor Swift's 1989 album. Quiet but strong-willed, the famously disheveled singer-songwriter is expected to put on the kind of show that can quiet a crowd with a brush of his guitar.
Run the Jewels: Oct. 17 at South Side Ballroom in Dallas
If you're tired of the same hooks and predictable lyrics of today's hip-hop scene, this is your show. El-P and Killer Mike combine bold, in-your-face verses and gut-punching beats as they proudly rep their ATL and NYC roots.
Jay-Z: Nov. 7 at American Airlines Center in Dallas
With the recent release of his shockingly personal and confessional new record, 4:44, Jay-Z's new music has been on the lips of nearly every music lover. Was his record a response to Beyoncé's album, Lemonade, which was about his alleged affair and its aftermath? We don't know. We do know we want to hear it live.
