We like Coldplay enough, but their openers might be the real gem of the shows. The alt-pop/rock of Wolf Gang recalls the exuberance of MIKA with the tenacity of The Shins. Better yet, Robyn brings her Euro pop brilliance back to town in a big way. She kicked Dallas’ butt all on her own last year at the South Side Music Hall. Now she gets to do it big time. Oh, and of course Coldplay headlines.
DEETS: American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Ave. 7 p.m. Through Saturday. $26.50–$107.Ticketmaster.com.
Funny how Katy Perry is Thursday night’s headliner at Verizon, but I seem to be seeing Robyn all over the Interwebs lately. The remix video of “Never Will Be Mine” has been released which I’m kinda obsessing over right now. The original holds up, but I needed an upbeat for this hot afternoon.
