Tonight's Forecast Calls for Thunder.
Are you sitting at home, wishing that a group of strong and buff Australian men would chase your troubles away with their banana hammocks and body oils? Of course you are! (Stop lying, liars!) Tonight, Thunder From Down Under, the show usually reserved for Las Vegas hotels and your deepest-buried dreams, comes to Dallas. If you're less interested in men and more interested in men with instruments, then be sure to catch Nada Surf at the Granada tonight. There are other options, too.
Nada Surf at the Granada Theater
Originally known for their '90s song, “Popular,” Nada Surf has had a bit of a resurgence in the past couple of years with their covers album, If I Had a Hifi, and this year's The Stars are Indifferent To Astronomy. While not exactly retro, Nada Surf tred deep into nostalgia, which may be why we're still talking about “Popular.”
The Merry Wives of Windsor at TCU
When a broke man tries to hook up with two different women in order to increase his funds, his plans turn sour and the women team up against him. Not really merry wives after all, huh?
“Dream With Me” at WAAS Gallery
Mena grew up in South Texas and later moved to New York, and “Dream With Me,” his collection of stunning photos inspired by the works of Alfred Hitchcock, marks his return to his home state.
Brad LaCour at Dallas Comedy House
As a finalist in the 2010 Funniest Comic in Texas Competition, LaCour has made a name for himself as being slightly less funny than a couple other Texans.
Thunder from Down Under at House of Blues
Right as Magic Mike is bringing male performers back into the public conscience, Australia's band of highly trained hunks will be stopping by Dallas to ogled. The idea is less sexy than it is hilarious, but isn't that sort of the point?
