Dallas venues bring diverse mix of concerts to metroplex this month

From Thanksgiving plans to studying for tests to getting those last papers in before the holiday, November can be a stressful month.

However, Dallas has a list of diverse concert venues, from intimate rock at the Granada Theatre to big name bands at the Gexa Energy Pavilion to fun up-and-coming bands at the Ho

use of Blues.

There seems to be plenty of music options to go around in this city.

On Nov. 5 STS9 will play at the House of Blues.

STS9 is a band that pairs electronic music with an unexpected mix of jazz, funk and hip-hop.

A very experimental band, STS9 consistently delivers fun and funky beats, making it fun for even the electronic-opposed c


Also on Nov. 5 is Guns N’ Roses at the Gexa Energy Pavilion.

Although the band isn’t exactly the same as it was back in 1985, it is predicted to be a blast from the past with a mind-blowing, hard rock experience.

Feist will take the stage on Nov. 8 at The Majestic Theatre. If the name Feist doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps one of her hit songs “1234” will.

After breaking off from Broken Social Scene, Feist won numerous awards for the 2008 Juno Awards in Calgary including Album of the Year and Artist of the Year.

Concert goers can expect a large dose of Indie pop paired with some amazing vocals and maybe even some banjo-playing.

On Nov. 10 the Palladium Ballroom presents Modest Mouse.

Their last studio album,”We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank,” was released almost four years ago and some fans wonder when their next album will be released.

Most widely known for their hit single “Float On,” the Palladium Ballroom will be filled with old songs and new, and beats that will get the even the most timid concert-goer dancing.

Headed to Dallas on Nov. 17 is SMU’s own Graham Colton Band.

An Oklahoma City native, Graham Colton began by performing at local pubs and coffee shops around Dallas. Colton has toured with John Mayer, Counting Crows, Maroon 5, Dave Matthews Band and Kelly Clarkson.

He’s best known for his hit song “Best Days,” which was featured on American Idol and Kyle XY.

Nov. 19 brings our neighbors from the south, Nelo.

These Austin natives will rock the House of Blues with an energetic and interactive performance.

Best labeled as alternative rock, Nelo released their second

album, “Ordinary Scene” last year.

Other concerts worth noting this month are Sting on Nov. 16 at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie and Wilco on Nov. 29 at Music Hall at Fair Park.
