Help Erykah Badu Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Lucky enough to have the day off from work or school today? Don't gloat too much. Not today.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, after all, is about celebrating our equality. In other words: If you're in the have-day-off-camp, none of us in the don't-have-day-off camp want to hear you talking about it.

Dr. King didn't fight the good fight so you could lord that over us. That wasn't his dream. Nor, for that matter, is it Kendrick Lamar's.

Plus, all things being equal, there are better ways for you to spend your Monday.

Inspired By His Words: The International House of Blues Foundation's Martin Luther Ling, Jr. 2013 Celebration at the House of Blues
From 10:30 a.m. to noon today, area youths will gather at this free House of Blues event to celebrate the spirit of Dr. King and showcase visual works and performances inspired by his life's work. This first-come, first-in affair will also feature a keynote speech from local luminary Erykah Badu.

Free Admission at the Dallas Museum of Art
Starting today, the Dallas Museum of Art will only charge admission for special events. Show up in droves today to let the museum know that you appreciate their efforts in this regard. Especially with the month coming to a close and your rent check coming up due.

Zorch, Ava Luna, Cerulean Giallo and Celestial Shore at Macaroni Island
Last time I saw Austin electronic duo Zorch, they tried to organize a dodgeball game in the middle of their concert. That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about whether this band's performances are a good time, I think.

Fort Worth Stock Show at Rodeo at the Fort Worth Stockyards
This sucker's been going on since 1896. It must have some redeeming qualities, right?
