According to the old adage, it's illegal to yell, “Fire!” in a crowded theater. As it turns out, it's also illegal to yell, “I'm on fire!” in a busy convenience store — especially if you're also nude and have just poured a gallon of milk on your head.
Two men in Kentucky recently discovered this the hard way.
But you know what's not illegal? Going to any of the following list of happenings for today — so long as you're fully clothed and somewhat well-behaved. — Cory Graves
OneFest Pre-Sale Party at Three Links
In effort to promote the forthcoming OneFest, local punk promoters at the Syndicate are hosting a pre-sale event with the psych-tinged hardcore outfit Hollow Earth from Michigan, along with Colorado-based Of Feather And Bone. Locals Fighting Chance and Heretic round out this heavy bill. — Evan Henry
The Unlikely Candidates, The Memphis Dawls at The Chat Room Pub
For the third night in a row, The Memphis Dawls performs its tightly wound, three-part harmonies and lush indie arrangements locally. Get used to it, as we hear one of the band's members is planning on relocating to Fort Worth in the coming months. Heading up the welcome wagon is Funky Town's The Unlikely Candidates and Taylor Craig Mills. — CG
Leon Bridges Listening Party at Josey Records
There's no bigger local act going right now that Leon Bridges. Case in point? The Fort Worth soulman just made his second late-night talk show appearance last night, this time performing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. It's a fact made all the more remarkable given that his album didn't even come out until today. Pick yourself up a copy of the hot little item on vinyl at this official listening party, and maybe take home a free Leon Bridges plastic comb and a split “Coming Home” and “Better Man” 45, too. — CG
59th Anniversary at Norma's Cafe
In celebration of its 59th anniversary, all three Norma's locations are offering up their famous chicken-fried steak at '50s prices — that's just $1.79, ya cheapskate. Just remember to eat your dessert first. As the joint's waitresses like to say, life's too short not to. — CG
