Check Out Some Music and Help Kids in Need.

We'll be the first to admit, we can be pretty self-centered sometimes. But it's just because we think we're pretty awesome. Heck, we even have a weekly feature called Ask a Narcissist, for crying out loud. But if there were ever a time a year to start thinking about somebody else, this is it. And tonight there are two nice opportunities to donate toys to children in need. Because, honestly, what's more awesome than helping out those around us?

The Libertine's 13th Annual Toy Drive at The Libertine and Single Wide
There's something to be said for longevity, and, in its 13th year, the Libertine is certainly flexing its muscle in that regard. Seriously, it seems like everyone is playing this thing — from Analog Rebellion and the Jimmy Kimmel-approved Sarah Jaffe (offering up a DJ set at this one) to Brain Gang Blue and J. Charles & The Trainrobbers. They had to even expand this across the street to the Single Wide to accommodate all the local talent willing to help this good cause.

The Sword at Trees
Their riffs may be heavy as stone, but the hearts of The Sword, Gypsyhawk, American Sharks and Maleveller prove endearingly soft tonight. In conjunction with 97.1 FM The Eagle, Trees is holding its fourth annual Toys For Tots concert tonight. Tickets for this Monday night metal melee are just $9.71 plus one unwrapped toy — y'know, for those aforementioned tots.

Speaking of Movies at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture
Wrapping up the fourth session of their classic film discussion series, the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture's Larry Allums will be joined by KERA's Stephen Becker for a night that includes dinner, discussion and a screening of Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train.

Vitruvian Lights at Vitruvian Park
Oh the weather outside is, well, not all that frightful at all, actually. But the millions of lights adorning the over 200 trees in Addison's Vitruvian Park are still delightful just the same. It makes for a nice spot for a leisurely stroll this evening.
