Go Crazy With Emeli Sande.
What day comes after Monday and before Wednesday? Only the best day of the week: Taco Tuesday!
OK, real talk time: We've started to notice that Tuesdays tend to get overlooked around these parts. But in our book, they're pretty rad. I mean, it's a whole day dedicated to Tacos, our favorite food (other than burgerss).
It's like, there you are, moments before your lunch break, lost in a sea of options as what to eat.
“Should I eat tacos?” you ask yourself. Um, yes!
So go on, chow down and fuel up.
You're going to need some energy to make it through tonight.
Show Your Shorts at Texas Theatre
The first 10 directors to respond to an earlier Facebook call by the Texas Theatre earned themselves the privilege of having their movies screened at the theater tonight. Meaning? Not everything you see tonight will be amazing. But hopefully you'll catch at least a few gems as good as the ones we've happened upon during past SYS nights. — Jessica Petrocchi
Tuesday Night Trash: The Blank Generation at Texas Theatre
Stick around after Show Your Shorts for a screening of the 1976 punk rock doc The Blank Generation. Unlike the usual b-movie schlock typically screened at TNT, this DIY doc features before-they-were-famous performances from bands like The Ramones, The Talking Heads, Blondie, Patti Smith, Television and the New York Dolls. — JP
Emeli Sande at House of Blues
Emeli Sande recently performed at the White House and on American Idol. She's slowly but surely becoming well-known for her strong, belting voice and growing solo confidence. While the Scottish singer-songwriter has been a known commodity in the UK for a while now, she's now starting to gain some traction in American too thanks to the hits she's penned for the likes of Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Leona Lewis. Perhaps you heard her cover of Beyonce's “Crazy In Love” in The Great Gatsy's soundtrack? If not, you should. — JP
Flesh Lights at Rubber Gloves
We'd hate for you to have to try and Google tonight's Rubber Gloves headliner — especially if you're at work. Here's what you need to know: The Austin band's sound is best described as garage-punk with a pop edge. They toured with The Hives last year and likes to describe their music as “muscle pop.” Not coincidentally, that's also the name of their first LP. Locals War Party and Doom Ghost open. — Stephen Young
