Space Out.

Do you fancy yourself a music snob or hipster type that prides his or herself on knowing every local artist that there is, listening to new albums before they're released, and loving bands before they got big?

If so, you're always looking for a new reason to boast and/or otherwise prove how ahead of the curve you are, right? If so, you should check out this list of awesome places to visit before they become famous and tourist-infested.

OK, so maybe that's not in the budget for tonight, per se. But here's a few places you can head and still feel somewhat snobby just the same.

Eels at Strauss Square
The recent release of The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett, the completed project that originally began before the Eels' prior album Wonderful, Glorious, is sure to bring a tear to the eye. Everett intended this album to be highly personal and intimate, almost to an uncomfortable point. If you're already in your feels, you might want to sit this one out — either that or just bring along plenty of beers to cry into. To that end: Remember that shows at Strass Square are BYOB. Chelsea Wolfe opens. — Chrissi Chetwood

Neil deGrasse Tyson at Winspear Opera House
If astrophysicists are your cup of tea, allow yourself to succumb to the gravitational pull of the sexiest one alive today at the Winspear Opera House. — CC

Pour Man's Beer Dinner at Common Table
Four full courses and four craft beers to wash it all down, all for 29 bucks. 'Nuff said. — CC

Bottled Up: The Battle Over Dublin Dr.Pepper at Alamo Drafthouse
You know it, you love it and you probably run up the street every other day to buy a new 12-pack. In this documentary, you can expect to learn the history and the turmoil between the original Dublin Dr.Pepper and its parent corporation, plus the current day commotion behind your favorite soda, as narrated by 1310 The Ticket's Danny Balis. — CC

One by One at One Arts Plaza
Cell phones and photo-editing apps have made it so nearly everyone's a photographer. And InstaDFW, a networking organization that reaches out to local Instagram photographers and artists, gets that. Tonight, the group will be holding its second One by One event, celebrating the convenience of mobile photography. With professional Dallas photographer Trey Hill as curator again, this year's show is sure to be an even bigger success than the first. — CC

New Fumes, Linear Downfall, Wire Nest and Chris Plavidal at Lola's
In the past few years Chris Plavidal has shifted his primary focus to his fashion photography work with SisterBrother. Before that, though, he was a member of Stumptone, which has just begun a sort of comeback of late. Come out to Lola's tonight to enjoy some psychedelic tunes, and to help Chris choose a career path! — CC
