Dance Party Erupts with Walk the Moon and The Griswolds at the South Side Ballroom in Dallas

Dance Party Erupts with Walk the Moon and The Griswolds at the South Side Ballroom in Dallas

Walk the Moon’s hit single is the definition of ubiquitous in Dallas — even going as far as getting radio play on a country station despite its very synth pop sound. So it was no surprise when the band’s upcoming tour date at House of Blues sold out so quickly that tour promoters hastily found a slightly larger venue, South Side Ballroom, to hold the throngs of eager fans decked out in their face paint and Coachella-esque headbands. The change to South Side Ballroom ended up being nice nostalgic throwback for the band, who held the opening slot at the same venue last fall when they came through town, and now they’re selling it out as headliners.
