Turn Dallas To Ashes.

On Saturday, a computer in London successfully convinced a room full of scholars that it was a 13-year-old human boy named Eugene Goostman.

What the machines will do with their newfound sentience remains to be seen. So, too, is whether they'll choose to use their growing sense of awareness for good or evil. Although, if science fiction has taught us anything, robots and the like almost always use their intelligence for evil.

Fortunately, there are more than a few ways to enjoy your remaining days of freedom, starting with the below goings-on today.

Bane at Dada
It's been nine years since the Massachusetts melodic hardcore outfit Bane has released a full-length album. A few weeks ago, though, the band dropped what it's calling its fourth and final LP. For now, the band says, the plan is to keep touring for years to come. But one can't help but feel like this could be one of the last chances to catch the band perform live. Give Truth and Night Crimes open. — Ashley Gongora

Booth at Kality Humphreys Theater
We think we know a lot about John Wilkes Booth. But what do we really know. Find out in Dallasite Steven Walters' latest play, which digs into the life and times of John Wilkes Booth and his eventual capture. It's the final week of this run's stagings. — Cory Graves

Mississippi Goddamn at South Dallas Cultural Center (Free)
Jonathan Norton's new play — which is getting the staged reading treatment tonight — is based on the 1964 Nina Simone song of the same name. Simone's song was a response to the 1963 murder of Medgar Evers, which Norton has admitted he didn't learn about until adulthood. Hey, better late than never. Tonight's reading is free. — CG

Texas Hold'em at Trinity Hall
According to TABC, establishments with liquor licenses are legally prohibited from hosting poker tournaments where entrants are required to risk money or anything of value in order to win a prize. Hosting tournaments with no buy-ins and with opportunities to win bar tabs, though? Those, it turns out, are totally legit. Hence Trinity Hall's free, weekly Texas Hold'em tournaments. You don't have to ante up in order to play. But you do have to sign up prior to 7:30 p.m. — CG
