See You At The Crossroads.

Recently, the cartoonists over at Doghouse Diaries posted a series of comics called, “If the Internet were an actual place…”

Some of the examples they came up with included calling Tumblr the “teenage bedroom wall of the Internet,” Twitter the “open mic of the Internet,” and 4chan the “public bathroom stall wall of the Internet.”

What does that make Central Track? The friend that bugs you every night to see if you want to go out and get drinks of the Internet? Or maybe that one friend you can always text to find out what's going on tonight of the Internet? — Cory Graves

Purling Hiss at Dada
The power garage rock meets pyschedlic freakout that this Philadelphia throws down is kind of reminiscent of the earliest Nirvana recordings. It will sound absolutely blistering live. Local heavyweights True Widow, meanwhile, will set the table quite nicely with its deliberately paced riffs, which somehow manage to sound razor sharp and sludgy as hell all at once. — CG

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at Trees
The fact that so many people were turned away at the door when Bone Thugs performed a sold out show at this same venue back in February kind of demanded the group would return so soon. Above everything else, the most important thing Bone Thugs' most recent tours — and especially its Dallas performances — has proved is that even after 20 years, the group has avoided the stigmata of being perceived as another novelty or nostalgia act. Not to sound too cliche here, but Bone Thugs-N-Harmony most certainly still has “it.” — Mikel Galicia

The Supersuckers at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill
Twenty-two years after its hard-rocking Sub Pop debut, The Supersuckers has come full circle. After toying with genres like country and cow-punk over the years, the band's currently supporting a brand new, straight ahead rock release. — CG

The Sound of Music at The Magnolia
On one of Boy George's recent visits to town he told us he used to drop songs from The Sound of Music in his DJ sets. “When we wanted to clear the dancefloor back in the day [because of closing time], I'd play “The Lonely Goatherd” from the The Sound of Music soundtrack,” he said. “We thought it would absolutely have folks run for the hills. But it somehow became a hit and people would sing along!” Try to resist the urge to sing along at this screening, though; talking in the theater still isn't cool. — CG

Pulp at Texas Theatre
Farewell concerts are a bittersweet thing to experience, in that they're often sold out affairs, packed full of the band's most loyal fans and typically feature the artists in question pulling out all the stops, turning in one of the best shows of its soon-to-end career. English rockers Pulp decided to film their last-ever show, and intertwine the footage into this documentary. What makes this one standout from most other rock docs, however, is all the man-on-the-street interviews with the quote-unquote common people in the band's hometown of Sheffield. — CG

Bonnie Friedman at The Wild Detectives
Best-selling — and widely anthologized — author Bonnie Friedman (Writing Past Dark: Envy, Fear, Distraction, and Other Dilemmas in the Writer's Life) will drop by the Oak Cliff coffee shop and literary hub to launch, and read from, her just-released memoir, Surrendering Oz: A Life in Essays. — CG
