Buzz Off.

Winter is here — at least for those of us all caught up on Game of Thrones. And, as long as we're already on the subject, there's a pretty fun little GoT-related time kill that recently hit the web in the form of an online Game of Thrones coloring book.

It's pretty magical, we think. The White Walkers? Fuck it; make them Green Walkers if you want to. The power is yours. Just don't get too sucked in.

Unlike in GoT world, it's totally summertime, and there's so much to do. — Cory Graves

Melvins, Le Butcherettes at Trees
On paper, Le Butcherettes touring as the Melvins' support doesn't really make much sense. The former is a garage punk band from Guadalajara known for its theatrical displays. The latter hails from the Pacific Northwest and stands as one of sludge metal's seminal progenitors, in addition to arguably being the forefather to the grunge movement. If there's a bridge to be made between the two, it's the fact that both rely heavily on bass and not just a little distortion. But that's it, really. So it's a good thing this show won't play out on paper, then. As these bands already proved at this same venue a few months back they go quite well together. — Pete Freedman

E-40 at Gas Monkey Live
Earl Stevens, better known as E-40, has sold millions of records, but in his 20-plus year-long career, the hyphy pioneer is not nearly ready to stop, as the rapper continues his venture to super-stardom. Enter the “Hall of Game” tour with this league of hip-hop acts like Stevie Stone also joining him for this one. — Evan Henry

Rhett Miller at Shipping & Receiving Bar
Before he had even graduated high school, Rhett Miller was something of a big deal locally. And, when he released his solo debut, Mythologies, during his junior year, his name began to carry a little weight nationally as well. A couple decades later, he's able to persuade the likes of The Decemberists and R.E.M. to contribute to his most recent solo album, The Traveler, which he released last month. For this one, though, he'll be up on stage all by his lonesome. — CG

“#emergence” at 3014 Space
Featuring the photographic works of Nicholas J. Harris, “#Emergence” puts on display a process of growing into prominence with a physical medium and the value it has on artists and viewers alike. Musical performances from -topic, Alsace Carcione and Freddy Sans will accompany the show. — EH

Johnny Mathis at Winspear Opera House

Clueless at Granada Theater
Head's up: We've got the in on a heavy clambake going on tonight. As part of its “cliques and flicks” series, the Granada folks are showing yet another teen movie, classic '90s flick Clueless. Well, there goes your social life. — CG

Michelob Ultra Katy 5K at Reverchon Park (Sold Out)
It's well-known that all types of folks love to frequent the Katy Trail. Hey, it's just one of the things that makes Dallas great. And it'll be even more crowded than usual this evening as thousands of runners have already helped sell out the trail's biggest annual fundraising event. — CG

The Sour Notes at Lola's
Austin indie outfit The Sour Notes is known for its glee-filled rock it purports to be akin to The Dandy Warhols, of Montreal or Foxygen. Tonight they'll have an easier time keeping the Fort Worth crowd riled up and happy after locals Sealion, War Party and The Dead Woods ramp things up as they're frequently known to do. — CG

Rahim Quazi at Good Records
Rahim Quazi hasn't put out a new LP in seven years now. That'll change in the coming days, though, when his new Ghost Hunting LP hits shelves. Tonight, he'll perform live acoustic cuts from the album, and then the thing will be played on Good's P.A. in full. It's free-to-attend plus there'll be some complimentary libations on hand, too. — CG

Toys That Kill at J&J's
Formerly called F.Y.P., San Pedro-based punk outfit Toys That Kill rips back through to DFW, this time hitting the sweltering basement of J&J's Pizza in Denton. Frontman, and Recess records founder, Todd C. rides the DIY flag across America, so donations are strongly encouraged here. Stymie, Bad Times and Serious Shit also perform. — EH
