Three 'don't miss' shows in Dallas-Fort Worth

Posted 3:06pm on Thursday, Sep. 30, 2010

A quick look at some local shows of note for the weekend of Oct. 1:

A trio of tremendously talented women -- Ruby Jane, Maren Morris and lalagray -- take the stage at Oak Cliff's Kessler Theater at 8 p.m. Friday. At just 15 years old, native Texan Jane has already racked up fans like Willie Nelson. Morris and lalagray (aka Ashley Myrick) are two North Texas-bred singer-songwriters with terrific albums to their credit ( All That It Takes and Devil's Nest, respectively). Tickets are $12.

For the monthly "First Friday on the Green" concert series, Fort Worth's own Telegraph Canyon and Whiskey Folk Ramblers will take to the stage at 6 p.m. Friday in Magnolia Green Park on the city's south side. Each band will be pulling from critically acclaimed new albums: The Tide and the Current, in Telegraph Canyon's case, and for the Ramblers, And There Are Devils. Admission is free.

The legendary Deep Ellum collective Fever in the Funkhouse, which reunited three years ago and counts Kenny Withrow and Bryan Wakeland among its ranks, plays Lola's Saloon Sixth at 10 p.m. Saturday. The group is reportedly working on a new album, according to its website. Tickets are $10, $15 under 21.
