Kid Rock It Up And Down The Block.

Recently, a woman in England heard that the Google Street View vehicle had just passed by her house, and decided to log in to Google Maps to see what it captured. What did she find?

Her non-smoker husband in the driveway lighting up. The thing is, he'd told her he'd long quit and was smoking on the down low. Needless to say, he was busted.

It's always good to know what's going on around you. Whether you're the woman or the man in this situation, a little head's up would have been nice. And while we can't necessarily tell you where the Google spies will be tonight, we can tell you everything else that's going on. It's a consolation, anyway. — Cory Graves

Kid Rock, Foreigner at Gexa Energy Pavilion
This show is what it is. If you like Kid Rock — and we're not here to judge — go check it out. The interesting thing about Kid's continuing “Cheap Ass Tour” — and it's of importance to all regular showgoers — is the ticketing policy. All seats at this show are $20, regardless of location, and totally non-transferable. It's basically an even stricter version of the Granada's system, which is to say that it's good for fans, and bad for scalpers. That's something we definitely hope catches on. Now, if we could just get something done about all the horrible service fees… — Stephen Young

Milo Greene at Dada
Surprisingly, nobody in Milo Greene is named “Milo.” This indie folk group is undoubtedly full of tricksters, including a Robbie, a Graham, an Andrew, a Curtis and a Marlana. Like I said, no Milo. — Chelsea Upton

You're Gonna Miss Me/Be Here to Love Me Double Feature at Granada Theater
Screening at the Granada Theater for just three whole dollars is You're Gonna Miss Me a now-decade documentary piece on Roky Erickson, the “alien” who is said to have created the “psychedelic” music genre with The 13 Floor Elevators between 1965 and 1969. Though in between, his relaunched solo career and brief reunion with the Elevators earlier this year at Levitation , things with Erickson weren't so hot. This film documents that time, where he was stuck, all alone with little human contact and battles to get out of a mental hospital in east Texas. Luckily, it's got a happy ending. Following Miss Me is Be Here To Love Me a stunning documentary on the life and times of Townes Van Zant, another musician that so notably dealt with mental illness in his brief life. — Evan Henry

Night Drive, Prism Cloud, Rat Rios at Crown and Harp
Stop me if you've heard this one before: Two guys realize they're dating the same girl at the same time because said girl tragically passes away. No, it's not the premise behind a bad '90s sitcom, it's actually the story of how Austin electro-pop duo met. If only everyone could handle their potentially awkward situations as gracefully as Night Drive, what a wonderful world this would be. — Porttia Portis

Authority Zero at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill
Want to hear something that will instantly make you feel old? Authority Zero has been around for going on 19 years now. After multiple lineup changes, the ska/skate punk group released its fifth studio album back in 2013. Counterpunch, Rubedo, and Loss Leaders open this so-called Summer Sickness tour. — Jessica Petrocchi

Caddyshack at Alamo Drafthouse
Alamo Drafhouse's usual Action Packed Movie Party is celebrating the classic '80s comedy Caddyshack tonight. With comedy kings Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Chevy Chase, this film was the late, great director Harold Ramis' first film. Danny Noonan is a high school kid working as a caddy for an upscale golf club. He sucks up the director of a prestigious scholarship, takes strange advice from a wealthy golf guru and deals with a mischievous gopher out to ruin everyone's day. — Diamond Victoria

Zella Day at Cambridge Room
Arizona native Zella Day has made a name for herself in the music industry with a unique blend of pop, country and folk. Her song “Hypnotic” was recently featured in an episode of Pretty Little Liars, and “Compass” made it on to the soundtrack of the upcoming film The Finest Hours. Tonight, though, she'll be live in person. — DV

European Vacation at Texas Theatre
Almost 30 years after its release, John Hugh's European Vacation is still as charming as ever, and has found its way back to the big screen this weekend at Texas Theatre. Follow the Griswolds around Europe as Clark gets stuck for hours in a round-a-bout and Rusty meets a prostitute. — DV

Anjelah Johnson at House of Blues
Around these parts, she may be best known as the “Taco Cabana Girl” from the chain restaurant's many cable TV spots, but the former MadTV player's more notable for her accomplished stand-up career, wherein she frequently and creatively riffs on her family's Mexican heritage beyond the expected, tired tropes. — Pete Freedman
