Modern ‘til Midnight at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
Reliably one of the most deftly curated evenings of music and art in North Texas, the annual concert series “Modern ‘til Midnight” returns to mark the opening of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’s newest exhibition, “KAWS: Where the End Starts.” An eclectic mix of local, national and international acts — Canadian punk band White Lung will headline, joined on the bill by the Sarah Jaffe/Symbolyc One supergroup the Dividends, among others — the concert provides an opportunity to hear music in one of the most arresting settings in the region, sounds filling the air as the crowd mingles in front of the reflecting pool. With Night Drive, the Hendersons and Bad Mountain.
6 p.m. Friday. Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Fort Worth. $20, $25 at the door, free for Modern members.
Stevie Nicks at American Airlines Center
One of rock music’s grande dames returns to North Texas for a solo showcase, in support of her 2014 album 24 Karat Gold — Songs From the Vault, which drew on demos Nicks had written as far back as the late 1960s. (As for why she’s just now getting around to promoting it, her touring obligations to something called Fleetwood Mac through late 2015 precluded any solo excursions.) Expect scarves and twirling aplenty — and with this gig landing so close to Halloween, some doubtlessly colorfully attired fans — as well as some of the most durable songs of the rock canon, given wings by one of the genre’s singular voices. With the Pretenders.
7 p.m. Sunday. American Airlines Center, Dallas. $49-$150.
