Girl’s Club: Celebrating The Female Voices of Dallas

n Friday, August 24th, Granada Theater is teaming up with female artist collective Beats By Her and Dallas women’s organization WiNGS for a night of tribute to the many emerging female artists of the Dallas music and art scene! Featuring indie pop darling Sudie, Lorelei K., Lev, DJ Natural Hiiigh, and many other emerging artists, this event will be a night you won’t want to miss. In addition to the music showcase, we’ll have an open market of female artisans and makers selling handmade art, apparel, vintage clothing, jewelry and more!

The DFW community is bursting with talent from female artists and collaborators all over the metroplex. What happens when you put a huge group of talented women in a room together to inspire and learn from each other? With Girl’s Club, we aim to find out. With this event we hope to highlight the efforts of hardworking women in our community, as well as encourage others to participate and support each other. That’s why we are so excited to partner with two organizations that are dedicating to doing just that. Beats By Her is an artist collective that provides a digital platform “created to support and celebrate the talent and hustle of women in music,” according to founder Jasmin Brand. WiNGS is a powerful organization dedicated to empowering women, fighting poverty, and impacting generations, by providing resources and programs to help women overcome poverty into financial stability, career readiness and small business development. WiNGS will be on site to provide information about the various services they offer, volunteer opportunities, as well as collecting donations for their organization.

 

Prior to the music, walk around our open marketplace area and support your fellow females by purchasing all kinds of handmade goods from vendors such as Valerie Morgan Jewelry, Babes Never Die Goods, Camie Scott Painting, Rare Heart Vintage Clothing and more! Come purchase unique, one of a kind items while supporting the wonderful women of Dallas and beyond.

Bryce Bangs CD Release Show!

A special night is coming to the Granada Theater. Friday, July 13th, Dallas local Bryce Bangs is bringing his band to Lower Greenville for his self-titled album release show. Bryce Bangs is a Dallas regular, having frequented many metroplex venues, including opening our own Granada Theater for The Roomsounds and Bob Schneider this past April.

Bryce Bangs, like so many bands across America, got his start jamming in a garage. Calling Dallas his hometown, Bangs’ draws on his life in Dallas to inspire and cultivate his musical sound.  In 2015, he released his She’s Gone – EP, a five song story of love, both as it comes and goes, and the struggle one experiences as they pursue that high again. Three years later, Bangs’ is ready to release his first full length LP. Bangs’ has led up to this album with the release of three singles, Belmont Tiff, Chasing That Gold, Taking A Ride. All three tracks are packed with energy and excitement, as the heavy guitar sound leads the band to powerful jams, while Bangs’ melodic voice soars overhead.

Bang’s described his single Taking A Ride as “all about living in the moment and breathing in the small things you normally take for granted”. You’re going to want to come down to the historic Granada Theater July 13th to live in the moment for this sure-to-be-epic album release show.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra is BACK at Granada Theater.

Dallas! Unknown Mortal Orchestra are coming back to the Granada Theater, their first time back since 2012! Unknown Mortal Orchestra is a New Zealand based psychedelic rock band, fresh off the release of their new album Sex & Food, which came out April of this year. The band is made up of front-man Ruban Nielson, along with Jacob Portrait, and Quincy McCrary. They have since moved base from New Zealand to Portland, Oregon.

Sex & Food marks Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s fourth studio album. Billboard.com calls it UMO’s “most boldly eclectic LP to date.”  The album was recorded over a vast distance of locations, including Seoul, Hanoi, Reykjavik, Mexico City, and Auckland. UMO started on this album in 2016, originally to be more post-punk than it ended up. As they traveled the world though, new inspirations came, and events, like being trapped in Central Mexico during an earthquake, brought new direction to the album.

We are so excited to finally hear the new sounds of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, July 14th at our historic Granada Theater! If you haven’t gotten your tickets already, grab them now before you miss this incredible show!

Sundown at Granada Welcomes Spring With a New Menu!

As the temperatures rise and our local gardens start to bloom, the Sundown at Granada kitchen has been inspired to shed our own winter coats and update the menu with fresh new seasonal dishes, full of color and flavor that reminds you of springtime. Our New Orleans hero and culinary mastermind, Chef Jason West, has rolled out a select amount of new spring dishes to tempt your taste buds, plenty of light, fresh dishes that are perfect for enjoying on our patio on a warm evening!

 

The innovative Chef West never fails to bring us dishes that are non-GMO, locally sourced, and especially delicious with a dash of New Orleans flair and the same is true for this menu. Chef West says, “I wanted to bring lighter dishes with brighter colors and flavors to this menu. Flavors and dishes that go well with Dallas summers and good times.”

 

Dishes include our FAMOUS Yellow Beet Pesto Pasta that we included on our spring/summer menu last year. That’s right – it’s back! Made with buccatini, summer squash noodles, sun-dried tomato, arugula, fresh basic, citrus chili oil, and shaved Parmesan, this dish is perfect for all our vegetarian friends, but is easily modified to be vegan and gluten-free! If you’re more of an omnivore, feel free to add free-range grilled chicken or wild-caught salmon on top for a little extra protein. We’ve also brought back our delectable Mango Tuna Poke Tacos made with sushi-grade ahi tuna, fresh avocado and cucumber, all in a crispy wonton shell. Chef West’s flavor-packed Seafood Pozole has made it’s grand debut on the menu this year as well. This traditional Mexican stew is made with poached salmon, garbanzo beans, radish, avocado, lime and tortillas, all mixed in with a rich seafood broth. Need more? Our Salmon got a face-lift and is now the Citrus and Herb Grilled Salmon – served with a mango jalapeno salsa, roasted carnival cauliflower, and soy ginger sauce.

No spring menu is complete without a list of refreshing cocktails to compliment these new dishes, and so we’ve added EIGHT new cocktails to sip on this spring! Try our fresh take on the seasonal ‘rita, now with watermelon-infused tequila, cointreau and fresh watermelon puree. Our Juliet & Romeo is a refreshing new drink with Tanqueray, fresh lime, cucumber, mint, and rose water, perfect for sipping on our romantic rooftop patio as you overlook the Dallas skyline.

 

We hope you enjoy these new features as much as we enjoyed creating them! To see the other new features,  more information, or to make a reservation, please visit our website Sundownatgranada.com

Houndmouth returns presented by KXT Radio!

Get ready to have sweet harmonies running through your veins as we welcome back Houndmouth for their second time playing here at Granada Theater! These Indiana native, alternative blues rockers will be sure to have your foot stomping along as they perform on our historic stage in Lower Greenville, Dallas Saturday April, 21st.

In an interview with Steve Melone from TheWaster.com, Houndmouth drummer, Shane Cody, expressed the band’s endless chemistry as a group, as all three members met in high school. Coming from New Albany, Indiana, they didn’t actually reach their full potential as a band until they started playing shows in Louisville, Kentucky, thriving within the town’s local music scene. After growing up together and working their way to success, Houndmouth’s connection and buzzing energy on stage is truly contagious and is guaranteed to create effortless folk rock vibes you won’t want to miss.

Playing hits from their newest album, Little Neon Limelight, such as ‘Sedona’ and ‘15 Years’, we assure you this isn’t a show worth staying home for. Be sure to catch Houndmouth take our stage with Frederick the Younger Saturday, April 21st! Tickets on sale now!
