Viva La Bishop Arts!

After a long, hard-fought battle, German footballer Mario Gotze connected on a shot in the 113th minute of yesterday's World Cup finals match to deliver Deutschland its fourth-ever World Cup. And, yes, the crowd went wild.

Well, some of it anyway.

Thrilling as the victory was for the Germans, though, the defeat for the Argentinian team and the realization for the rest of the world that there won't be any more World Cup action for another four years was actually pretty agonizing.

No need to sulk too long, however. There's plenty more to life than soccer.– Cory Graves

Marissa Nadler at City Tavern
Just days before this year's Independence Day holiday, Boston dream-popper Marissa Nadler released a creepy, slightly strange video for her haunting — and patriotic? — single “Firecrackers” from her February-released sixth LP, July. Though it's a bit of a downer, we'd do just about anything to see it overtake Lee Greenwood's “God Bless the U.S.A.” as our country's default Fourth of July jam. Dim Locator and Delmore Pilcrow open. — Ashley Gongora

Bastille on Bishop at Bishop Arts District
Beyond being the basis for a classic Rush song, this French holiday is of particular meaning to North Texas — or, more specifically, Dallas. Among the first settlers in the city were the group of French ex-pats who formed the Utopian colony La Reunion in 1855. Ever since, Dallas has had a French influence, and various landmarks — including Reunion Tower and Reunion Arena (RIP) — were named after the colony . To celebrate, the Bishop Arts District is hosting its fifth annual Bastille on Bishop block party featuring star chefs, wine tastings and an outdoor market. Go check it out and show off your newly-found knowledge about the day's local origins. — Stephen Young

Tye Tribbett at House of Blues
Tye Tribbett has truly worked his way to the top when it comes to gospel music, all the while remaining to true to his beliefs and who he serves. His roots can be found in his initial group, Greater Anointing, which rose to national attention after sweeping the competition and earning first place in all categories at several gospel contests. Nowadays, Tribbett is focused on his solo work and is an even bigger success than prior. — Chrissi Chetwood
