Spend Five Seconds With Twin Shadow.
It's Monday, so you're probably feeling worn out and possibly still hung over.
Good news, then! We've found a solution! Icelandic folklore claims that if you bathe naked in the morning dew, it keeps aging at bay.
So that's something!
Not your style? Well, maybe you can just go back to sleep until you recharge enough to take advantage of these awesome events tonight.
Twin Shadow at Granada Theater
The Dominican-born George Lewis Jr.'s “True Story” tour aims to synthesize its way into your heart. Elliphant opens what should prove an all-around chilled-out affair. Last time Twin Shadow was in town, you may recall, it was for a packed-out show at Trees. Expect a bigger, and perhaps even better, offering this time through. — Jessica Petrocchi
Anberlin at The Door
The Door returns to its roots with this show from the negligibly-Christian rock act Anberlin. The band's doing all-acoustic sets on this tour, so expect a stripped-down low-key sound from the Florida quintet. Stars in Stereo and Campfire OK open. — Stephen Young
DCI 2013 Tour Premiere at Cinemark 17
Drum Corps International presents a special screening of the first event of its series of summer marching band competitions, held on June 22 in Akron, Ohio. Go check it out. It's like Drumline, but in real life. — SY
Gruesome Playground Injuries at Bryant Hall in the Kalita Humphreys Complex
Tonight's as good a night as any to check out this Rajiv Joseph play. It's about kids, and then adults, who form a lifetime bond through injuries suffered on an elementary school playground. We just got laughed at when fell off the monkey bars, so we're quite jealous of these characters. — SY
Neil Gaiman at the Majestic
Neil Gaiman — author of American Gods, Coraline, Anansi Boys and The Graveyard Book, as well as the creator of the DC Comics series Sandman — discusses his latest novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, at the Majestic tonight. The appearance tonight comes as part of a book tour that's promised to be Gaiman's last ever such run in the States. So don't miss out on hearing one of the most creative voices in world literature.
Sugarfoote & Co. at Adair's
Monday Adair's stalwarts Sugarfoote & Co. do their roots-Americana thing tonight. Grab a couple pitchers of cheap beer and prepare yourself for the rest of the work week at perhaps the best dive in Deep Ellum. — SY
Cool Out Mondays at The Crown & Harp
Summer Mondays just wouldn't be the same without $2 wells upstairs at The Crown and Harp. Tonight's offering is a special one, too. DJ Sober will be joining resident DJ Tony Schwa at this party, which pays tribute to all things Michael Jackson. And how: The first 50 people to show will be gifted a free, bedazzled left-hand glove to ensure optimal, um, thrills. — SY
