Have A Weekend In The City With Bloc Party Tonight.
You believe in reincarnation, right? Good, because there's probably a decent chance that you were a famous person in a past life.
What if you were someone terrible, though? Like someone infamous? Maybe you were John Wilkes Booth?
If so, you've probably gathered some pretty bad karma by this point, and you're in need of some redemption. Remember: Doing good deeds could always land you in the body of a cool famous person in the future.
But isn't true altruism found in helping yourself?
No? Whatever. Fine. Then just go see Bloc Party at the House of Blues or watch Sarah Jaffe on your TV tonight.
Bloc Party at House of Blues
If you're still not tired of playing “Helicopter” over and over on Guitar Hero, maybe you should check out Bloc Party (with local favorites Burning Hotels) tonight at the House of Blues. Also, you should probably knock it off with all the Guitar Hero. Seriously.
Oral Fixation at The McKinney Avenue Contemporary
Season 2 of Oral Fixation (the performance art act in Dallas focused around locals telling true stories of their lives) has started, with the second performance of the season happening tonight. The theme tonight is “Cold Turkey,” which means tonight's affair will be focused around stories of the holidays and, oh, probably some drug addiction as well. (See what they did there?) Event starts at 7:30 p.m.
Sarah Jaffe Watching Party at Sundown at Granada
Did you know that Dallas's own Sarah Jaffe is going to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight? If you'd like to fangirl with other Jaffe-minded people, look no further than the Sundown at Granada, where a 10-2 event honoring Jaffe's appearance offers prizes and a DJ set.
Open Mic Night at the Dallas Comedy House
You stand in front of the mirror, alone, and say a joke out loud. You don't laugh. In a panic, you rush to the Dallas Comedy House and take the stand at the free open mic night. You say the same joke to the crowd. They all laugh. That was a close one.
