Sing An Ode To Joy.

With the San Antonio Spurs exerting their playoff dominance over our own Dallas Mavericks yesterday afternoon, our city is once again without an athletic club to root for for the time being.

Sure, the Rangers are still very much alive in their own way-too-long season, but we're still months away from that race heating up.

In the meantime, we'll have to occupy ourselves with other happenings. Fortunately there's plenty goings on tonight to keep you distracted.

Oral Fixation at Wyly Theatre
For the season finale of Oral Fixation's personal story-telling series, not only will they be moving into their biggest location yet, but they'll also be incorporating video elements into the proceedings to ensure that even those in the nosebleed seats can see the facial expressions of those spinning revelatory yarns. At tonight's “The Whole Enchilada” reading, Mico Rodriguez will dish on the inner workings of Mi Cocina and Observer writer Jesse Hughey will humorously recall participating in an enchilada eating contest. — Cory Graves

Pour Mans Beer Dinner at Common Table
Every Monday night, beer-centric Uptown eatery The Common Table hosts a four-course, gourmet beer dinner that even the most broke Dallasites can afford. And it's so worth the effort. For instance? Tonight's final course is a beer-soaked apple pie with beer cheddar crust, caramel ice cream paired with a session lager. — CG

Froth at Rubber Gloves
Los Angeles' Froth may have started as a joke project, but the surfy, DIY punks have evolved into one of the premiere users of the Omnichord in the world. Like-minded Dallasites Sealion and Fort Worth upstarts Bummer Vacation open. — CG

Three Amigos Quote-a-Long at Alamo Drafthouse
There's a reason your dad can tell the difference between mail planes and ordinary jets. After brushing up on this classic bit of comedic cinema, you'll understand his brand of jokes, too. Also? You may even figure out where one of our favorite local bands found its name. — CG

Beethoven Festival at Meyerson Symphony Center
There's a reason Beethoven is the most well-known composer of all time: He's fucking flawless. Even with works from the height of the composer's deafness — such as his Symphony No. 9, which will be performed tonight — his music was as approachable as it was untouchable. Whether you recognize the bulk of the movements from this hour-plus long symphony from Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange or you just know just the legendary “Ode to Joy” section, hearing this one with a full chorus of vocalists should make for a matchless musical experience. — CG
