Here Come the Mummies
Five thousand years old and funky in more ways than one, Here Come the Mummies is a forgotten tribe of raunchy pun lovers out of the distant, dusty past. In an unforgettable stage show, the rag-wrapped, vulgar-minded undead unravel funky jams such as "Bump" and "Carnal Carnival," which weave innuendo with tales of characters such as the boogeyman and a hot-dog vendor. Other songs include "Libido Knievel" about a lascivious daredevil and "Dirty Minds," a confession about the gutter-bound thoughts of the band set to a mambo-paced rhythm. Perhaps the most thrilling portion of any Here Come the Mummies concert occurs when the band breaks out its trademark cowbelts—one-of-a-kind pelvic bells played with hip thrusts.
Graceland Ninjaz, the self-described “King of Party Bands,” goes for broke in a grab-bag set of 20th-century pop favorites. Led by the flamboyant, hip-gyrating Elvis impersonator David “EzE” McMahon, the band mashes up artists from Lady Gaga to Prince to The Doors in mischievous and prankish arrangements. The band’s “Baby Sandman,” for instance, lures in ears with the opening riffs of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” and then pulls the wool by dropping in the rap of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” “Smells Like Ice Baby,” on the other hand, combines the bleak grunge of Nirvana with Vanilla Ice’s famous exposé on glacier movements.
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
