Let It Breathe.

On the heels of yesterday's Mother's Day holiday comes today's much-lesser known observation of Fatigue Syndrome Day. Yes, it's a real thing.

Veteran celebrators of the holiday recommend celebrating by using one of your personal days in lieu of going into work today, taking naps, sleeping in and, well, you get the picture.

Point is, whether you're a believer in such tangential holidays, it's probably a good idea to rest up for tonight's festivities just the same.

Water Liars at Dan's Silverleaf
In just three years of existence, the moody Mississippi-based rockers in Water Liars have already released three full-length LPs, the most recent of which was a self-titled effort released in February via Fat Possum Records. For its part, the band's latest LP mixes in country undertones and ever-so-subtle alt-country tendencies to its brand of cathartic, and at times heart-wrenching, indie-rock. You can stream that one here. RTB2 opens. — Cory Graves

Outward Bound Mixtape Sessions at Crown and Harp (Free)
This new, regular Monday night event promises to be, well, anything but regular. Curated by the always cutting edge Stefan Gonzalez, one of Dallas' best, if not most interesting, drummers, these pretty-much-weekly events tend to host some of the most challenging performers in town. Tonight's offering, for instance, will feature Mille Femmes, Datahowler, Half Asexual & Haultine III, Deflowered Electric Flesh Bride, Hero Between Two Worlds and Gonzalez' own avant garde solo percussion act, Orgullo Primitivo. — CG

War Master, Tolar, Cleric and Tricounty Terror at Lola's
Houston death metal outfit War Master may only be a few years old, but the seasoned chops of its members, combined with the group's heavily-leaning old-school '80s metal sound, gives one the impression they've been doing this thing for fucking ever. Opening sets from Tolar, Cleric and Tricounty Terror will represent the local metal contingent. — CG
