Music Fix Monday: Concert Sampling

One of the great things about living in a city like Dallas is not only do we do just about everything bigger and better (in the opinion generated by our own humble, gianty bigger and better egos), but the music scene provides a steady flow of great artists touring through the Lone Star state. Summer lovin' in DFW is not only the season of overdone faux tans, crash diets, and pool parties (I annually participate in one out of those three and will leave it to you to guess which, but it's the option that requires shades and tons of SPF coverage), it's also the major kickoff of some fabulous concerts. Do I love it? Better believe I do! It's one of the things that makes our Dante's Inferno summers remotely bearable!

This month in May, we Dallasites have a great line up already ranging from classical to straight up rock. To satiate my own music fix, I've been listening to the music of these fab concerts I'm planning on attending and thought I'd share a sample of the may concerts in DFW. Many of you readers aren't here in Dallas, but don't worry! If you're digging the tunes, I've listed the tour dates of each artist below. Now start purchasing your concert tix!
