Run For It.

In case you've been painfully out of the loop, Governor Oops is in Dallas today to formally announce his intention to make a run at President in 2016.

Yawn.

In other, infinitely more compelling news, there's plenty of other performers, artists and the like in town tonight that won't drain the entirety of your life force. Here are but a few of the things we care about more than Rick “Adios Mofos” Perry. — Cory Graves

Sam Prekop at Dada
Initially tracking with synthesizers in his spare time, The Sea and Cake front-man Sam Prekop has resurrected his solo efforts for The Republic, an LP released a few months ago through Thrill Jockey and a tour to accompany. Local hit-makers Dove Hunter open. — Evan Henry

Diarrhea Planet at Three Links
Nashville shredders Diarrhea Planet continue to rip the globe a new rear with its four-guitar attack and penchant for rock poses. This performance ought to be no different as these guys are, and continue to be, “rich beyond your wildest dreams.” Left and Right and local sweethearts Sealion open. — EH

Discourse, Blistered at Sons of Hermann Hall
In typical hardcore fashion comes South Carolina-based straight edge punks Discourse, along with a variety of like-minded acts. One of those will be Enchant, which has, since 1989, continued to tear apart the rest of the acts in the genre the San Francisco quintet is commonly lumped in with. Blistered and Pulled Under also perform. — EH

Barefoot at the Belmont at The Belmont Hotel (Free)
As part the Barefoot At The Belmont concert series, Dallas soul legend Bobby Patterson is still alive and kicking along with The Jack Kerowax for an already long sold-out performance out looking downtown Dallas. — EH

Jack Oblivian at Texas Theatre
Jack Yarber, better known as Jack Oblivian and founding member of The Oblivians, jams behind the screen of the historic Texas Theatre following a screening of The Class of Nuke Em High for a mess of teenage garage waste. Included are pop-up shops from Lo-Life Recordings and Carnival Barker's Ice Cream. — EH

A-Kon Masquerade Ball at Hilton Anatole
One of two balls associated with this weekend's A-Kon festivities, this is the masquerade-themed one. So, don't confusedly show up in your steampunk gear. That ball is tomorrow night. Glad we cleared that up, that could have been really awkward. — CG

10 Things I Hate About You at Granada Theater
Starring Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is teen drama, 10 Things I Hate About You , a sad take on charming the opposite sex in film form, of which in 2014 was rebooted for sequel entitled 10 Things I Hate About Life , also directed by Gil Junger. — EH

Ringo Deathstarr at Rubber Gloves
Channeling the ethereal soundscapes of My Bloody Valentine and pop sensibilities of The Cure is Austin shoegaze trio Ringo Deathstarr. Along with locals Joy Sores, Clear Acid and Big Hand // Big Knife show-goers ought to expect tingling spines and ringing eardrums following the evening. Hey, you may even get a sludge version of Weezer's “In the Garage” if you're lucky. — EH

The Story So Far at The Prophet Bar
California pop-punk quintet The Story So Far has more former members (four!) as it does LPs released (three!) since first forming in 2007. But that's only a portion of the story so far (sorry) on The Story So Far, as the group has also released a whole slew of EPs and splits in that time, too. This show finds the band performing with Four Year Strong, Terror ans Souvenirs. — Pete Freedman

Precious Little at Bath House Cultural Center
For Pride Month, the theater has historically used its June production to showcase a lesbian playwright or a play that features prominent LGBT characters. This year it's putting on Madeleine George's one-act about a single woman in her 40s deciding to have a kid on her own, and finding out through prenatal testing that it may never have the ability to speak. It runs through June 20. — CG
