We’ve parsed through the lineups and cut through the noise to bring you a monthly roundup of the best live shows in Fort Worth.
Danni and Kris at BoomerJack’s
Whether performing covers or originals, the acoustic pop duo Danni and Kris always put on an enrapturing show. Silky smooth vocals, effortlessly intertwining harmonies, and a wide range of song offerings are hallmarks of these North Texas singer-songwriters. The duo promises to perform their favorite songs by Fleetwood Mac, Eagles, Amy Winehouse, and others early this February at the North Side location of BoomerJack’s Grill.
Polydogs Single Release Party at Tulips
Tulips is the type of music venue that Fort Worth has been waiting for, thanks to nightly shows that feature the best in local, regional and national talent. Polydogs, recently described as easily the “best pure rock” band in Fort Worth by Fort Worth Weekly, is releasing two singles mid-February via an album release party. The show starts at 8 p.m.
Real Love and Rare Love in Texas
Billy Bob’s Texas, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, has a Valentine’s Day event with a charitable purpose. Proceeds from Real Love and Rare Love in Texas benefit Love For Kids, a 45-year-old nonprofit that provides resources for children. Performers include Aaron Copeland, Steve Helms and Randy Brown.
Monday Funday with Monna at Main at South Side
“Corn is the Barbie of vegetables: no real value but also somehow very successful at everything it tries to be,” Monna recently tweeted. The young, local comedian heads Claws Out Comedy, and you can catch the raunchy, hilarious show at Main at South Side as part of the “Monday Funday” series. You can follow Monna on Twitter @MonnaComedy.
Joe Savage Live at Lola’s Trailer Park
Lola’s Trailer Park offers a safe outdoor listening experience where craft barbecue and ice-cold beer are only a short stroll away. Joe Savage performs at Lola’s Trailer Park later this month, and you don’t want to miss local Americana stalwart. Savage is working on a new album, El Camino, which features 11 songs that are inspired by his walks along the Camino de Santiago in Spain in 2019.
Michael Lee at The Post
The Post at River East offers one of the best open-air concert experiences in Fort Worth. The rustic, roofless main performance space is one of my favorite places to grab a drink, dinner and to hear a show. Later this month, you can catch Michael Lee, the Fort Worth-based blues musician who was a contestant on the 2018 season of The Voice.
