Learn The Toadies' Dark Secrets.

Over the weekend, we lost our annual hour of sleep — thanks a lot Ben Franklin! — due to the clocks springing forward.

And it couldn't have come at a worse time, really. With SXSW spillover currently underway — and both the yearly trek to Austin and Dallas' St. Patty's Day shit show still ahead this week — it looks like we'll be losing a lot more hours of sleep in the coming days.

We wouldn't worry too much about it, though. How important could sleep really be anyway, if scientists still haven't officially figured out why we do it in the first place?

Burger Records Spring Fling at The Where House
Thanks in part to SXSW spillover and the second annual international Burger Revolution tour organized by California garage rock label Burger Records, North Texas has the opportunity to catch a shit-ton of headliners all crammed onto a single marathon of a bill. To that end, Pujol, Cosmonauts, Gap Dream, The Garden, Summer Twins, The Lovely Bad Things, Mozes & The Firstborn, Son of Stan, Cobalt Cranes, The Abigails, Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel, The Longshots, Love Cop and Pizza Time will all be performing at this one. — Cory Graves

Dark Secrets: The Stories of Rubberneck at Kessler Theater
Initially planned as an online-only promotional tool for the upcoming Rubberneck 20th anniversary reissue that's due out April 1, this short doc on the making of that seminal album — which, we should point out, was created by Toadies guitarist/Emmy-winning TV editor Clark Vogeler — will get a free, one-time-only screening tonight in Oak Cliff. Following the screening will be a Q&A with the band moderated by Dallas Morning News' Robert Wilonsky. Oh, and they aren't doing the whole reservation thing, so you'll probably need to get there long before the film's 8 p.m. start time to be assured a seat. — CG

The Fred Eaglesmith Traveling Steam Show at Dan's Silverleaf
The gruff-voiced Eaglesmith — Canada's answer to Tom Waits — will sing a bunch of songs about trains and other modes of transport tonight out in Denton. — CG

Typhoon at Sons of Hermann Hall
The Portland outfit routinely plays with 12 to 14 members onstage at a time, mixing strings and horns into their intricately crafted, densely layered orchestral pop tunes. Phox and Line & Circle open. — CG
