Music minute: Blackbox Presents a Texas lineup at the Grotto

Posted 7:03am on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012

Thursday's close enough to the weekend, right? Let yourself go with a great mix of Blackbox Presents and Dallas Distortion Music-curated local and regional rock at the Grotto with Fort Worth's Pinkish Black, the Dallas-based Blackstone Rangers, Austin's the Boxing Lesson and Purple. The tunes get going at 9 p.m., and cover is $7.

Dallas-based country-rock outfit J. Charles and the Trainrobbers will release the debut LP Upon Leaving on Tuesday, but the band has an impressively full celebration planned for Saturday at Club Dada. Beginning at 9 p.m. with Dead Birds (which features members of Whiskey Folk Ramblers) and continuing through to the Trainrobbers' headlining set at midnight, Dada will be filled with great, diverse local sounds. (Other performers on the bill include Dove Hunter, the Will Callers, Corey Howe & Vince Tuley and Dan Phillips.) Tickets are $5 in advance (via Ticketfly.com), $8 at the door, $11 for under-21s.

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
