Book It.

Flying can be a pretty scary thing. Plane travel, in and of itself, is already pretty dicey, even before things like terrorists became a very real fear. I mean, by what sorcery do they manage to get 75 tons of steel to float in the sky?!

So when the TSA failed epically this past week in finding 95 mock explosives and weapons during a test, it prompted would-be passengers of the mystical machines to rethink their form of travel for a while. We, for ones, aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

Why don't you join us in just staying planted safely on the ground today. Heaven knows there's plenty to see and do here in town tonight. — Diamond Victoria

Benjamin Booker at Trees
Last year was certainly a busy one for Virginia garage/blues/soul force Benjamin Booker, who not only toured with Jack White, but added stops at Lollapalooza, FYF Fest, Newport Folk Fest and, Austin City Limits to his schedule, and released a self-titled LP. Tonight he'll keep on blowing and going with his second Deep Ellum stop in the past eight months. — Cory Graves

Christopher Owens at Dada
When San Francisco pop duo Girls called it quits in 2012, its cult of youth followers, for a moment seemed to lost. It wasn't until a year later that ex-Girls frontman — and native Texan — Christopher Owens released a solo effort entitled Lysandre. A couple weeks ago, Owens released his third solo full-length, which is as undeniably poppy as the material that drew young fans to his music in the first place. Daniel Markham opens. — Evan Henry

Rose's Pawn Shop at Three Links
Rose's Pawn Shop isn't actually a pawn shop somewhere in middle America run by an old lady named Rose, but a group of five guys that embrace the Appalachian mountains and old-school Americana music to create their own proclaimed “cornerstone of Los Angeles” pop music. Matthew & The Arrogant Sea opens. — EH

It's Just Banter Live Taping at Off the Record
If you're a listener of KTCK 1310-AM or 96.7 FM, you probably feel like you already know TC Fleming and Jake Kemp well. And if you're not a listener of The Ticket? Well, whatever. Hopefully, by now, you've at least checked out their It's Just Banter podcast, which, for the past few weeks now, we've partnered up with to release. Either way, you've got your best opportunity to familiarize yourself with these two tonight at 7 p.m., as they tape a future edition of “your second favorite podcast” live at Off the Record. — Pete Freedman

“Fashioning Our Identities” at Dallas Museum of Art (Sold Out)
Through an extensive questionairre filled out by 600 women from all around the world — including a handful of celebs like Lena Dunham, Miranda July and Molly Rinwald — authors Heidi Julavits, Leanne Shapton and Sheila Heti created something of a field study on everyday fashion and the psychology of why women choose to don the particular clothes they wear. That's just some of what they'll be in town discussing tonight at the DMA. — CG

2001: A Space Odyssey at Alamo Drafthouse
There are just certain movies that every well-rounded human being should see. Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of those films. It's a seminal piece of cinematography, a real game-changer in nearly every facet. And like many a Kubrick flick, it's got a killer soundtrack, to boot. — CG
