Hide In Plain Sight.
For anyone hoping to vote Kanye for president in 2020, welp, it ain’t happening. After meeting with new BFF the orange tick yesterday, he’s decided not to run until 2024. Gotta let his boy get a full eight years in.
But if you’re just hoping for something worthy of leaving the house for tonight, we can make that happen pretty easy. Here’s where to run off to this evening. — Cory Graves

Jim James at House of Blues
The My Morning Jacket frontman stops in Dallas a month after the release of his solo album Eternally Even.

Love Actually Movie Party at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
OK, you cold-hearted cynics! Listen, I know a lot of people hate this movie — but those people are joyless monsters. This movie is a gem, even if some of its plotlines are more creepy than romantic. All the intersecting lives in London at Christmastime are fascinating to different degrees, and Emma Thompson gives one of the most heartbreaking performances of all time here. — Kip Mooney
