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. 


OCTOBER 4

Sunday Supper Club featuring Courtney Patton, Jason Eady and a “Double Secret Guest”

Cap off your October weekend plans by brunching it up in the welcome company of live music. We don’t know much about the secret guest, but The Post at River East is a gorgeous open-air venue that allows for ample social distancing and great food and drinks. A handful of concerts are currently booked at the Riverside locale, including an October 4 performance by Texas-based singer-songwriter Courtney Patton.  

 


OCTOBER 9

Katsük Live at Pouring Glory

This Near Southside restaurant deserves kudos for safely keeping live music going in the Fort for the past few months. As other venues slowly reopen, Pouring Glory is keeping its outdoor live music model booked through October. You can catch the self-described “world folk fusion group” Katsük (the namesake project of musician Daniel Katsuk) on the 9th. 

 


OCTOBER 16-18

Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra Performs Beethoven 

The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra (FWSO) has resumed in-person concerts at Will Rogers Memorial Auditorium. Safety precautions are a high priority, and every other row of seats is left empty to ensure social distancing. Patrons are asked to wear masks throughout the concert. The FWSO is currently one of the few symphonies in the United States performing in any capacity. Mid-October, you can hear the idyllic strains of Beethoven’s Pastoral symphony under guest conductor Roderick Cox. 

 


OCTOBER 17

Shane Smith and the Saints at Billy Bob’s Texas

The fall concert schedule at Billy Bob’s Texas is ramping up with a slate of amazing local, regional and national music acts. Shane Smith and the Saints is a high-energy country quintet known for pitch-perfect four-part harmonies, relatable storytelling and memorable melodies. 

 


OCTOBER 31

Brandin Lea at MASS

After presenting months of amazing livestream shows, you can once again catch shows inside the walls of Main at South Side. Brandin Lea, former Flickerstick frontman, closes out October with hits and new songs that feature soaring vocals and fuzzed-out guitar chords that hark to 90s alt-rock.
