Snow tha Product at Trees
The woman born Claudia Feliciano in San Jose, Calif. — better known by her rap handle Snow tha Product — moved to Texas six years ago, in part to pursue a career in music. It was a gamble that paid off in 2013, when Feliciano signed a deal with Atlantic Records (coincidentally, now home to a fellow Texas-reared artist, Burleson-bred Kelly Clarkson). Although Snow Tha Product has only released a series of mixtapes (including last year’s The Rest Comes Later) and, earlier this year, an EP, Half Way There … Pt. 1, during her time on Atlantic, she has remained visible, recently landing a guest spot on the hotly anticipated Hamilton mixtape.
7:30 p.m. Friday. Trees, Dallas. $20.
Willie Nelson at Billy Bob’s Texas
Let’s be honest: Who else would be best suited to cap off the Billy Bob’s Texas 35th anniversary celebration than Willie Nelson? The red-headed stranger, 83 years young, will roll into Fort Worth for his only scheduled North Texas appearance this year, touring in support of his latest long-player, For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price. Given the nature of his new record, an album-length homage to one of his most dear friends and collaborators, Nelson will likely be in a reflective mood Saturday, although he’s long been fond of mining the seam between melancholy and merriment. Expect, as always happens when Nelson storms the Stockyards, a packed house and good cheer.
10:30 p.m. Saturday. Billy Bob’s Texas, Fort Worth. $20-$100.
