Put A Cherry On Top.

No matter how shitty things get, there’s always a way to turn things around. Take, for instance, San Diego’s Stone Brewery, which has figured out a way to make beer with recycled sewage. It reportedly tastes very “clean” with “hints of caramel.”

Today might feel like something of a letdown, what with it being the post-SXSW, post-St. Patrick’s Day hangover. But we have a list of surefire ways to turn that shit around. — Cory Graves

Cherry Glazerr at Three Links
Behind the swaggering rock of rising L.A. rock trio is a 19-year-old girl wise beyond her years. “It’s about women having to fight for space,” she tells Billboard about the band’s new album, Apocalipstick, “It’s about women having to create space for themselves — politically, economically, and socially. A space that doesn’t exist and isn’t open to them and isn’t for them yet.” The world needs more Cherry Glazerrs. It’d be a lot more bitchin place, that’s for sure. — CG

Colony House at Trees (Sold Out)
Fun fact: Two-thirds of Franklin, Tennessee rock trio Colony House are the progeny of noted Christian musician Steven Curtis Chapman. The band sites everyone from Kings of Leon to Tom Waits and Switchfoot as influences on its sound. Oof. — CG

Hip-Hop Book Club at Josey Records
If you’re a hip-hop fan, then you’ve probably argued with your friends about which Jay-Z album was really the best or whether Yeezus was actually a good Kanye album. But rather than keeping these thought-provoking conversations limited to individual friend groups, the folks behind a new idea called Hip-Hop Book Club wants to turn these debates into public forums. With the launch of their new monthly concept at Josey Records, they hope to bring Dallas audiophiles together on the regular to wax poetic about the rap game’s most notable albums. — Porttia Portis

A League of Their Own at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
In this ’90s flick, Gena Davis and Tom Hanks lead an all-star cast through a great story about a rag-tag group of misfit women playing for an all-female baseball league. Other cast members include Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell and Lori Petty. The great Penny Marshall directed this film that didn’t receive that much acclaim when it was released, but has stood the test of time and remains a classic. — Roberto Aguilar

The Bralettes Benefit Show at Shipping and Receiving
The Dallas bubble gum punk trio is raising money to make an album. All the proceeds from the $5 entry fees to this show – which also features live sets from Period BOMB, Mango Blossom and others –will go to the cause. — CG

New Math Monday at Off the Record (Free)
This week’s special guest is DJ Spinderella – and it’s still free. Well, how ‘bout that. — CG

Jackie Brown at Alamo Drafthouse (Cedars)
My favorite Quentin Tarantino movie is the only one he didn’t write himself. His adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s Rum Punch is an exhilarating homage to the Blaxploitation movies of the 1970s with Pam Grier and Robert Forster getting the complex roles that were always denied them. — Kip Mooney

Adulting101 — Healthing: The Basics of Taking Care of Yourself at Union
There’s not an instruction manual for raising kids. And figuring out the whole adult thing on your own can be even harder. Don’t go it alone, let’s all figure this crap out together with these regular, peer-led gatherings. — CG

La Vida Bohème, La Beriso at Cambridge Room
The top-selling Venezuelan alt-rock band La Vida Bohème is best known in the U.S. for its song “Radio Capital” from Grand Theft Auto V. — CG
