Music minute: Calhoun opens the season's Patio Sessions with Madison King

Posted 9:03am on Wednesday, Apr. 04, 2012

As the weather warms up from, well, a pretty mild winter, it's time once more for live music to fill the air in North Texas. The AT&T Performing Arts Center is reviving its Patio Sessions series, and turning to Fort Worth for help kicking it off at 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Pop geniuses and all-around swell fellas Calhoun will headline the free show, pulling heavily from the excellent LP Heavy Sugar (Go get it if you don't have it), with support from equally terrific Dallas-based singer-songwriter Madison King, whose staggering debut Darlin Here's to You was one of my favorite local albums of last year.

For whatever reason, Bravo, Max! (now a trio) remains one of the area's best-kept musical secrets, despite a fantastic live show and a pretty solid debut LP, Dog's Light. If you've been putting off seeing the band melt faces, catch it at 10 p.m. Saturday at the Double Wide in Dallas. The Johnny Beauford-led outfit will be joined on the bill by Fort Worth's the Cleanup and Goodnight Ned.
