Anoushka Shankar at Wyly Theatre
To answer the obvious question first, yes, Anoushka Shankar is the daughter of legendary Indian instrumentalist Ravi Shankar. But rather than slavishly follow in her father's footsteps, Anoushka uses the music of her homeland as a jumping-off point, infusing the distinctive sound with jazz and classical textures that provide fresh context for an ages-old style. Shankar's latest LP, Traveller, fuses Indian and flamenco music to often dazzling results; over the course of her two-night stand in Dallas, she'll help listeners expand their sonic boundaries.
8 p.m. Saturday & Sunday. Wyly Theatre, Dallas. $25-$65.
Eisley at Granada Theater
Although the Tyler-based indie-pop group Eisley has weathered its share of personal and professional potholes in the past few years, the travails have had remarkably little effect on the quantity and quality of the band's music. Sure, there are darker textures at work, but one can't reasonably expect the DuPrees to continue cranking out sweetly melodic daydreams of the sort that first catapulted them to fame. Instead, listeners are rewarded with records like last year's The Valley, a more melancholy collection that is nevertheless spiked with the ethereal harmonies for which the DuPree clan is justifiably celebrated. With Christie DuPree and Bethan.
7 p.m. Sunday. Granada Theater, Dallas. $15-$25
