Father John Misty at Granada Theater
One of 2012s best albums was Father John Mistys Fear Fun, and the man who made it, singer-songwriter Josh Tillman, hasnt been shy about stopping in DFW regularly. Each time through (this trip marks his third show in North Texas in less than a year), he has found himself in slightly larger rooms, and with good reason: Hes packing some seriously great songs, dense and sprawling with a debt to Loudon Wainwright and Harry Nilsson. If youre on the fence about attending, dont be Father John Misty will provide you with one of the best shows youve seen so far this year. With Jessica Pratt.
8 p.m. Monday. Granada Theater, Dallas. $20-$39.
Jim James at House of Blues
The My Morning Jacket frontman is going it alone with his new album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, which marks his solo debut. The man with one of the most haunting voices in rock doesnt change his approach too much plenty of sonic atmosphere, spiked with his one-of-a-kind vocals although the widescreen kinetics of MMJ are sorely missed by the end. With Cold Specks.
9 p.m. Tuesday. House of Blues, Dallas. $26-$31.
