The AT&T Performing Arts Center announced the 2014 Spring lineup of Patio Sessions, a free music series in the Center’s Sammons Park. The weekly Patio Sessions features a diverse schedule of local musicians from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the first week will feature Doug Burr with Tyler Rougeux of Whiskey Folk opening.
The performances, aimed at the downtown, after-work crowd, begin at 5:30 p.m., adding to an already vibrant lineup of activities in the downtown Dallas Arts District on Thursday evenings. Patio Sessions is sponsored by DC9 at Night, the Dallas Observer Music Blog and is funded by a grant from TACA.
Patio Sessions will take place outside the Center’s Winspear Opera House, in Sammons Park. We encourage our guests to come and enjoy food and drinks at the Southwest Porch. Local food trucks will be on site for concessions for purchase and visitors are also welcome to bring their own food. The only alcoholic beverages permitted will be those purchased at the Center’s concession stands.
Patio Sessions is scheduled for every Thursday in April and May. The following lineup is comprised entirely of area musicians, including emerging new artists and favorites of the area’s indie rock scene:
April 10 – Yells at Eels
April 17 - Holt & Stockslager perform the songs of Simon & Garfunkel
April 24 – The Cush (headlining) and Diamond Age (opening)
