Florence + the Machine tonight at Palladium Ballroom

Grace against the machine

Florence Welch has been riding high ever since she and her band have released their debut 2009′s Lungs. Which we really liked a lot. Grammy nominations, VH1 Diva status and even a spot on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve are all high-profile honors the band has received in a short time. But FATM passed the true test of following up with the equally impressive Ceremonials from last year. FATM is all about big. Big voice, big drums, big music which should all fill the mega-big Palladium quite nicely.

DEETS: With Blood Orange. Palladium Ballroom,1135 S. Lamar Road. 7 p.m. $39.50. GilleysDallas.com.
