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.
The Summerland Tour at Billy Bob’s Texas
The Summerland Tour was founded by Art Alexakis of the 1990s rock band Everclear. The annual tour largely features alternative rock bands that were big in the 1990s. This year’s lineup includes Everclear, Living Colour, Hoobastank and Wheatus. The traveling show hits Billy Bob’s Texas in early July.
Rockin' the River
Rockin' the River returns to Panther Island Pavilion this summer! The weekly concert series continues through Saturday, August 7, with gates opening at 1 p.m. each Saturday for tubing and good times. Each concert features five bands: four from the Coors Light Waterfront Stage and the final from the Cinch Stage. Tube rentals, food, and drinks are available for purchase. Fireworks end the night at 9:25 p.m.
Katsük and Pablo and the Hemphill 7 Perform at Lola’s Saloon
While adjacent Lola’s Trailer Park has been open for a few months, the famed indoor saloon has not. Until now. Lola’s Saloon recently reopened with a sold-out show that featured Royal Sons. A large amount of the tuneage will continue to be blasted from outdoor Lola’s Trailer Park in the coming months, but indoor concerts are coming back. Catch singer-songwriter Katsük and rock/reggae group Pablo and the Hemphill 7 at newly reopened Lola’s Saloon later this month.
Vandoliers Perform at Tulips FTW
Six-piece alt-country group Vandoliers performs at Tulips FTW late this month. The Texas-roots group signed with famed Americana label Bloodshot Records in 2017 and maintained a dizzying performing and touring schedule.
The Love Starved Dogs
Show this group some love. Fort Worth-based The Love Starved Dogs covers classic rock songs that get crowds singing, dancing and clapping. Let loose at Main at South Side later this month in the company of popular rock songs.
Centro Popular at Wild Acre Live
Wild Acre Live is a new multi-stage live music venue complex located at the popular local brewery, Wild Acre Brewing. The brewery teamed up with local festival pros, Fortress Fest, to host year-round concerts featuring various sounds. Centro Popular will be the third concert held at the new venue on Saturday, July 31. Musical acts include King Lil G, Baby Bash, Frankie J, Twista, Krystall Poppin, Emilio Rojas, AJ Herns, local hip-hop sensations Renizance and Louie The Singer and more.
