Amarillo's rocking this weekend (through Nov. 17) with country, classical, pop, Tejano and more. Check out all your tuneful options below.
In the Spotlight
Prophets and Outlaws
Texas country band Prophets and Outlaws show a new side of themselves in the upcoming video for their new single, "Show Me" — the lonely loser side.
"We're having a lot of fun on film," said lead singer Matt Boggs.
The song is "about when you tell a girl you love her and she says I need you to show me you love me," Boggs said, and the video follows suit.
"We hired an actress, and her job was to push us away in all of our attempts to get her and, in the end, fall in love with one of us," he said.
Though the band has made videos before, "Show Me" represents a step forward.
"It's the first time we worked with hairstylists and had, like, a camera operator," Boggs chuckled. "We did it like a real music video; we had a story line and storyboards.
"The acting part was kind of funny, but we had an actress there with us, so it made it a little easier," he continued. "It was a little awkward at first, but we all had a good time with her. There wasn't anything too serious going on."
Listen for the tune when the band returns to town for a 10 p.m. Friday show at Hoots Pub, 2424 Hobbs Road. Opening act is the Caleb Allemand Band. Cover is $10.
White Label Analog
Austin indie rock band White Label Analog will make its "maiden voyage" to Amarillo for a show Saturday, but they've already made inroads, lead singer Chris Didear said.
Songs from the band's first EP, A Little More Time, and its new full-length, In Case You Just Tuned In, are in regular rotation on FM90, which give the band "a great reason to come play for an audience in Amarillo," Didear said.
The band will make its debut at 10 p.m. Saturday at Leftwoods, 2511 S.W. Sixth Ave. Cover is $5.
He founded the band when he found himself between gigs in Austin.
"I put an ad on Craigslist, believe it or not, and met James (Millican), the guitarist, who had just recently moved from Virginia down to Austin," Didear said. "I was looking to write music (previously, he worked as a drummer) and do something maybe different than I had worked on in the past, and we hit it off and we started writing some songs."
Didear and members Heath Macintosh (drums) and Aaron Herbster (bass) had come from a "more edgier, hard-rock background," Didear said.
"I had taken that everywhere I wanted to go with it, so I wanted to do something different ... something that was contemporary," he said. "I think Heath and Aaron felt the same way, and in that respect, James ... was really kind of that breath of fresh air and had his finger on the pulse of a contemporary direction."
Now, instead of that hard rock sound Didear had specialized in before, White Label Analog's music is "danceable," he said.
"It's just fun ... and I think that's reflected in the reaction we get from people who hear it," he said. "What's fun about this band is the marriage between the older-school, guitar-based rock with synthesizer stuff and the more fun, poppier side of indie music."
