“The Vandoliers are here to get under your skin and they’re not at all shy about doing it on “Troublemaker,” the rowdy new cowpunk anthem that gives a first taste of the band’s next LP, Forever, which is due out in February.” – Rolling Stone Magazine

New Year’s Eve at Sundown Recap: Cure For Paranoia & Chilldren of Indigo

This past Monday, we had the privilege of hosting two of the best bands Dallas has to offer with Cure For Paranoia and Chilldren of Indigo at Sundown at Granada for our very special New Year’s Eve show! Both bands put on incredible shows to send 2018 out on the highest of notes.

 

Chilldren of Indigo started the night off with a highly energetic opening set. Chilldren of Indigo are regulars of Lower Greenville, playing on Funk night for Free Week in 2018, and headlining their own show at Sundown. The chemistry between the band was on full display, with each member getting ample opportunity to rock out and command the audience’s attention. The show went to another level when the band graced Sundown by performing their to-be-released song “17,”  about coming of age. The band hinted that it would be on an album to be released in 2019, so we know we’ll be on our toes until it drops! Chilldren of Indigo ended their set with an incredible cover of Kendrick Lamar’s “King Kunta,” setting the mood for an incredible Cure For Paranoia set.

 

Cure For Paranoia frontman Cameron McCloud deejayed in between sets, keeping the energy going until their first bars. Every song Cure hit the audience with was incredible, and certainly set a great atmosphere to bring in 2019. Cameron McCloud and Stanley Francisko reminded the audience to keep up the self love, with multiple call and response bits of “I love myself” throughout the set. Cure For Paranoia was especially gracious to the Dallas artists they work and collaborate with, including Jo Indigo on stage for multiple songs, performing another Kendrick Lamar cover with “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

 

This was a fantastic show to wrap up a great 2018! If you didn’t have the chance to make it out, don’t miss either of these bands the next chance you get! Thank you so much Dallas for sharing these moments with us and we look forward to all the incredible shows we have lined up for you in 2019!

Edie Brickell and New Bohemians Debut their latest Album!

Edie Brickell and New Bohemians bring their eclectic and varied range of musical sounds to the Granada Theater stage on Oct. 11. Watch as they debut their latest album, “Rocket” which bounces effortlessly between genres like reggae and disco. The musical diversity of this unclassifiable band cements their place in the good graces of the alternative genre. If you are fan of the multi-genre experience, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

Edie Brickell and New Bohemians exploded out of Dallas nearly thirty years ago. The band got their start out of the Denton, Tx club scene, where they were noticed by Geffen Records. Their debut album, Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars, went double platinum and set them on the path towards musical success. Staying true to their roots, these Dallas-natives return to a stage in their hometown, after almost a 12 year hiatus, at the historic Lower Greenville venue.

But wait till you hear about the front-woman, Edie Brickell. A musical prowess in her own right, Brickell, was nominated for a Grammy in 2015 for Best Musical Theater Album. Her work with Steve Martin in the popular Broadway Musical, Bright Star, sealed her status as a great songwriter. Americansongwriter.com calls her voice and the band’s sound “a breath of fresh air”.  Brickell’s lyrics contain underlying meanings that speak about relatable real-life experiences. Not only will we be jamming to those eclectic feels at Granada, we’ll be nodding hardcore to some great lyricism.

Join us at Granada Theater on Oct.11 to support the comeback of this multi-genre band that has its roots right here in Dallas. Tickets available here: https://prekindle.com/promo/id/25679195308065054

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!
