  Texas Music
by lilfishy72

If you know where to go there is great, live Texas music that can be enjoyed every night without fighting a large crowd or commercialization. For a $8-12 cover you can go to a number of restaurant/bars and sit 10 feet from the stage and enjoy authentic music. Some of the best places are Love and War in Texas in Plano and Grapevine, Hanks Grill in McKinney, Dan's Silverleaf in Denton, the Granada in Dallas (more of a theater), the Kessler in Oak Cliff, Woody's Tavern in Ft. Worth (Billy Bobs is big and crowded but fun, too), there are 2 or 3 places in the stock yards with live music like Thirsty Armadillo and White Elephant Saloon, Last Chance Saloon in Plano, Poor David's Pub in Dallas. These are where local people go to enjoy genuine Texas music (mix of country, southern rock, blues - also called Americana music). A lot of local artist from DFW and also Austin/San Antonio play here. Pull up the restaurant/bar website to see who's playing; listen to the artist's music on itunes/myspace and pick someone you like and catch their show while you're in town. You won't regret it.
