Show Robert Plant A Whole Lot Of Love.
Doc Emrick is an American treasure. The guy is an outstanding hockey announcer and does some great work during the Olympics as well.
He is also, undoubtedly, the master of the synonym. During game one of the Stanley Cup finals, he used 140 unique terms to describe a player passing the puck.
Here are most of them set to a Daft Punk backing track. Because, of course they are.
Here are the events, celebrations, shindigs, festive occasions, throwdowns and blowouts happening around town tonight. That is to say, go out tonight and make Mr. Emrick proud.
Robert Plant and the Sensational Shape Shifters at Palladium Ballroom
Legendary Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant brings his Sensational Shape Shifters project to the, still for the time being, Palladium. This show should be a welcome departure from Plant's work with Allison Krauss and the Band of Joy for Zeppelin fans as his Shape Shifters focus on rock and blues rather than roots music and Americana. Expect a set chock-full of Zeppelin covers and all of Plant's traditional vocal histrionics.
Texas Punch at the Crown & Harp
This is the first in series of concerts intended to promote up-and-coming Texas artists without “the shifty politics and cosigns of the game.” To that end, tonight's show at the Crown & Harp features sets by JT of Brain Gang, 2-Twenty, The Mohicans and Express. Sounds like a pretty cool concept and a good time, if you ask us.
The Diversity of North Texas and Latino Artists at the Latino Cultural Center
Angel Fernandez, who's an active sculptor and art professor at Tarrant County College, presents a talk about the diversity of the Latino art scene in North Texas. His presentation will feature works from scene artists and discussions of the various ways they approach their subjects.
The Tony Q Project's Last Show at House of Blues
Tony Q, Evan Park and Rico DeLeon perform their last ever show at a venue they're pretty familiar with, the House of Blues Voodoo Stage. Come for the indie/singer-songwriter/hip-hop fun one final time before Park moves to California.
Foe Destroyer at the Where House
Genre-hopping local indie band Foe Destroyer performs at Fort Worth's Where House, which is, of course, an old warehouse. Most shows at the venue are, like this one, BYOB, so make sure and bring some hooch unless you just want to relive your X-ed out high school days.
Madison King at Sundown
Local alt-country singer-songwriter Madison King plays a free show on the Sundown's rooftop patio. If you're hungry (for something other than King's precious melodies that is) we recommend the Greenville Ave Grilled Cheese.
