If you’re me, the end of Thanksgiving doesn’t mean it’s almost Christmas yet – it means Jingle Ball time! In the five years I’ve been in Dallas, I think I’ve only missed one Jingle Ball. It’s truly a show I look forward to every year, showcasing some of the biggest artists of the year singing their top hits of this year and years past. What’s not to love!
Every member of The Jacks probably dresses better than you, and they definitely have better hair, but they’re more than just LA pretty boys. They perform with a polished yet energetic precision. Not missing a beat during their shows even when they manage to kick over two beers onstage. They just keep going, as any good rock band should.
PALE WAVES have been on quite the roll recently. The group create sparkling synth-pop that has you dancing all night. I was beyond stoked for their stop at Scoot Inn in Austin.
We’ve been obsessed with morgxn for a long time now, but when he announced that he’d be on tour with DREAMERS we lost it. The two alt-pop bands made for the perfect duo at Stubb’s in Austin.
Plastic Picnic has been hyped up to me since SXSW. They were on everyone’s list after the week of madness and yet I missed them. Incredibly upsetting, but I was thrilled to catch them at the Hi-Hat in Los Angeles where I finally got to dance along to their unassumingly emotional lyrics.
This fall, 5 Seconds of Summer has quite honestly taken the country by storm, both embarking on the U.S. leg of their Meet You There tour and hitting #1 just this week on the pop radio chart for the first time ever with their second single, Youngblood (a BOP, y’all).
With two 5SOS fans who have been around since the band’s beginning, we at The New Nine hit up not one but two shows this tour and boy were we in for a treat.
We’re so obsessed with morgxn and his incredible music. We definitely can’t wait to see him on tour with DREAMERS.
It’s been 10 days since my reputation tour and it’s taken me this long to put into words the impact of seeing Taylor live after 3 years. I’ve been a Swiftie since I was 16, and now at 28, the only thing that’s changed is the admiration I have for Taylor. From her self-titled debut album to reputation, I grew up with each era she released. When all my friends changed from year to year, Taylor was the one constant I had. Her music was always there when I needed it.
With news of their first headlining tour, we got the chance to check out lovelytheband in Nashville and at Hangout Festival. lovelytheband hit the stage just as the sun started to set and the venue came alive with more fans. Opening with “Make You Feel Pretty” the band set the scene with the song giving off a similar vibe to the time of night and finally for us in Nashville, great weather.
Franz Ferdinand is touring for their 2018 album Always Ascending and it’s fitting for the wave of fans who are still clamoring for more from the Scottish based indie rock favorites. They’ve been an international success since their debut single “Take Me Out” flooded every form of media in 2004.
