End Racism With LL Cool J.

Over the weekend, scientists began to publicly put forth the notion that life on Earth, as we know it, may not, in fact, have originated on this planet at all. According to one recent theory, the bulk of the Earth's flora and fauna (including that which from which humanity evolved) may have come from Mars.

If proven true, would that make us Martians? Would this then change popular belief about the possibility of life on other planets?

Not up for debate, however, is the possibility of life outside your home tonight. Sure, it may be Monday. But there's lots going on just the same.

LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul at the Verizon Theatre
This is one of those lineups that would have been viewed completely differently two decades ago. Still, it might be worth checking out all the same, if only to see if any of the acts can summon the ghost of great shows past. Public Enemy, we know, is still capable of a stirring performance when and if they're in the right mood. And, if he's feeling up to it, LL just might put an end to racism. — Stephen Young

Rachael Yamagata at Sons of Hermann Hall
Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata brings her “Dealbreaker Heart” tour to Deep Ellum tonight.

She's also collaborated with the likes of Rhett Miller, Jason Mraz and Toots and the Maytals. Check this show out if you want to put a face with the voice.

The Burning of Rome at the House of Blues
San Diego art-rock outfit The Burning of Rome hits the Cambridge Room behind their March release, With Us. The band's bizarre sound could be described church-carnival goth, if that makes any sense. — SY

Nathan Brown, Black Horse, The Wooden Wings and Ronnie Heart at Lola's Saloon
Fort Worth singer-songwriter Nathan Brown leads a lineup at Lola's that features Little Rock act Black Horse and New Orleans blues-folkies The Wooden Wings. A couple of DJ sets by ex-Neon Indian member Ronnie Heart puts a bow on the evening's festivities. Not too shabby for a Monday in the Fort. — SY3946_2
