Anytime The Pretty Reckless come to town, fans in Dallas get pretty excited. October 4, 2013 was no different. People lined up to see the Going To Hell Tour, consisting of The Pretty Reckless, Heaven’s Basement from the UK, and Louna from Russia. Already a fan of The Pretty Reckless and having heard Heaven’s Basement before but not seen them live, I was looking forward to the show. Louna I had not heard of until that night but they made a very lasting impression for more than just one reason.
GWAR played at the House of Blues in Dallas, TX on October 26, 2012. Joining them were DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, and Legacy of Disorder.
The All-American Rejects and Boys Like Girls are not afraid of the dark
The House of Blues Dallas played host to The All-American Rejects and Boys Like Girls on Wednesday, Oct 3. Occasionally, the screaming throng of teenage girls in attendance was actually able to see the members of the bands, when a random flash of light broke up the darkness that the bands spent the majority of their time standing in. Maybe it was an attempt to get the kids ready for the haunted houses they were sure to be attending soon. Regardless, it was not an ideal way to see the bands these fans had come to see.
Slash heats up House of Blues
Saturday night was a busy night in Dallas for concerts. There was the Neverset benefit show out at Trees. There was Kings of Rock out at Pizza Hut Park. But that didn’t stop House of Blues from being completely sold out and a line wrapping not just around the building but through it. And who were all these people there to see? Why SLASH of course!
A night with Sister Hazel
Sister Hazel has been around for ages and, as vocalist Ken Block says, has a bazillion albums so it’s no wonder that House of Blues was packed to the rafters Friday night with fans of all ages ready to get their weekend started off with a good old fashioned rock show. And with that many songs there was plenty to play for them.
House of Mars
The House of Blues became the House of Mars last night when 30 SECONDS TO MARS and MIDDLE CLASS RUT came in for the first of two shows here in Dallas. The place was packed to the rafters with fans of all ages who were more than ready for the antics the bands were sure to bring.
A new kind of Christmas Pageant
Christmas came early to the House of Blues Sunday night with Family Force 5’s Christmas Pageant. The tour brought togetherFamily Force 5 (FF5), two Dallas bands – Forever the Sickest Kids (FTSK) and Shorelines End – and duo Secondhand Serenade brining fans the Christmas spirit in their own special way.
Cyndi Lauper rocks House of Blues
When I think of Cyndi Lauper I think of the 80s. “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” was an anthem among teen girls and “Time After Time” went on to become a classic ballad covered by numerous artists. I don’t normally think of the blues when I think of Lauper – but that’s what we got last night at House of Blues. Which makes it sort of a fitting venue I suppose.
A Night with Dommin
LA based Goth rockers DOMMIN made a stop in Dallas last night while on their way to New York to join up with Volbeat. To say the band’s Dallas fans were excited would be an understatement.
