Party Like A Rockstar Tonight At Gexa.

In a recent horoscope, we discovered that if we were real Americans we'd be celebrating our independence all year long. That shouldn't be too hard since we have all kinds of fireworks left over. If we do get questioned about it, we'll just whip out our Bahamian accent and claim we're celebrating our home country's independence from the UK on this day in 1973. Yeah, we looked that up. Anyway, if you've already blown your firework load, there are a couple of great concert options, a classic film and a building blocks exhibit worth your celebrating this evening.

The Big Movie: Goldfinger at The Magnolia
Sean Connery's third Bond film, in our estimation, has probably had more impact on pop culture than any other in the James Bond franchise.

King Tuff and Natural Child at City Tavern
Kyle Thomas' 2010 album under the Happy Birthday moniker was one of our favorite albums released that year. In fact, we still listen to that album's “Girls FM” here at Central Track HQ on a weekly basis. Thomas' newest album under his King Tuff name is a bit broader in scope, but at its heart it's still the same Thomas we fell in love with.

DJ Taylor Rea at The Double Wide
On Tuesdays, you can typically find a member of a local band trying their hand taking over the house sound at The Double Wide. Tonight, Taylor Rea from the band Zhora will take a crack at it. Anyone who has ever had drinks at The Single Wide when Rea has been bartending — and is thus in control of the joint's iPod — knows the caliber of tunes she'll be mixing in tonight.

Dallas Cityscape at Galleria Dallas
We once made a pretty spot-on replica of Abraham Lincoln's early log cabin using nothing but our childhood blocks. OK, so they were Lincoln Logs, but trust us, it was a really accurate model. Even more impressive are the seven-foot-tall models of notable Dallas architectural spots currently on display at The Galleria. Hopefully, the models are behind some protective glass — either that or that the person who built them doesn't have a dickhead older brother.

Rockstar Mayhem Festival at Gexa Energy Pavilion
It's hard just to say the phrase Rockstar Mayhem Festival without it naturally coming out in that gritty, fake echo-y, monster truck rally commercial voice. Go ahead and try it. Well, this Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday eight of the world's most extreme metal bands will launch a brutal aural assault at the Gexa Energy Pavilion. Slipknot, Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax and more! One day only! Be there! See? It just kind of happens.
