Preston’s picks: Fort Worth Music Festival at Panther Island; Morrissey at Majestic Theatre

Posted 8:28am on Thursday, May. 15, 2014

Fort Worth Music Festival at Panther Island Pavilion

For its fourth year, the Fort Worth Music Festival has gone a little bit country, and a little bit rock ’n’ roll. Friday’s lineup favors the rustic sounds of Lucinda Williams, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Billy F. Gibbons, Justin Townes Earle and the like, while Saturday’s schedule skews more rock and punk, with Jimmy Eat World, the Airborne Toxic Event, Jackopierce, Air Review and others set to take the two stages set up just outside downtown Fort Worth. For a complete listing of bands performing, visit www.fwfest.com.

3:30 p.m. Friday; 1 p.m. Saturday. Panther Island Pavilion, Fort Worth. $40-$100.

Morrissey at Majestic Theatre

It wouldn’t be a Morrissey tour without some drama. The famously diffident vocalist recently stirred up trouble in Santa Ana, Calif., reportedly requesting that another show next door to his be scrapped to avoid bleeding sound into his performance. (Morrissey’s management says he had nothing to do with it.) And that’s before he makes it to Dallas, a city he’s canceled on twice in the last year, but where he may finally make his first appearance in three years — and on his 55th birthday, no less. With Kristeen Young.

8 p.m. Thursday. Majestic Theatre, Dallas. $39.50-$99.50.
