Concerts You’ll Want To See This September

by Lauren Menking 6 Sep 2016 10:14 AM

As the leaves turn and the air gets crisp, lots of great shows are popping up across North Texas. The folks at KXT tell us which concerts we need to mark on our calendars.


Fall is on it’s way,  and this year we’re welcoming autumn with open arms. Like, “the size of Michael Phelps’ arm span” open arms. And that has little to do with pumpkin spice, and everything to do with concerts.


Here’s a look at some of the fantastic live shows you don’t want to miss this month in North Texas:

KXT 91.7 Presents The Kills

Wed, Sept. 7
Granada Theater
Tickets available here.

Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. Boy and girl…form a critically-acclaimed indie rock band and produce five albums. At least, that’s how it went down for Allison Mosshart and Jamie Hince of The Kills. Catch the star-crossed creatives at Granada early this month, on the heels of their latest release, Ash & Ice.

KXT 91.7 Presents Kraftwerk

Sat, Sept. 10
The Bomb Factory
Tickets available here.
Some argue Kraftwerk is the most influential band in pop history. Some say it should be “Beatles and Kraftwerk,” not “Beatles and the Stones.” Whatever you believe, you can see the revolutionary electro-band for yourself at The Bomb Factory this month. If you’re there, be sure to stop by the KXT table and say howdy! Yes, we have stickers.


Sat, Sept. 10
South Side Ballroom
Tickets available here.
On the heels of her 50th birthday, rock goddess Shirley Manson and her crew are swinging through Dallas. The American-Scottish rockers recently released their sixth studio album, Strange Little Birds, and just last year wrapped up their 20 Years Queer tour, which marked 20 years since the band’s debut self-titled release.


Death Cab for Cutie

Wed, Sept. 14
The Bomb Factory
Tickets available here.
Er, speaking of bands formed in the nineties that we still love…Death Cab for Cutie is coming to The Bomb Factory. The indie pop stalwarts’ latest album, Kintsugi, was nominated for Best Rock Album at the Grammy’s this year — just further proof that 19 years and 8 albums later, there’s no stopping Ben Gibbard and Co.
