Fly Solo with a Lone Night Hawk.

Nature is weird, you guys.

See, there's this thing that looks and feels exactly like a rock but, when you break it open, it has guts — oozing, red guts.

It just gets weirder from there. Pyura chilensis, as it's known officially, can't move –like, at all. It feeds by filtering microorganisms from seawater and, weirdest of all, it reproduces by expelling puffs of eggs and sperm and hoping the two collide.

You can only find this rock/animal/thing off the coast of Chile and Peru, where the locals say it tastes “soapy” and “weirdly of iodine.”

We promise nothing you see while you're out tonight will be as strange as this thing.

Unless, of course, you go the the Fifty Shades of Grey parody musical. Because there is absolutely no telling what might happen at that thing.

Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody at Majestic Theatre
Whether or not you've daydreamed about finding your very own Christian Grey or Anastasia Steele whilst reading the popular E.L. James novels, you'll probably find this parody musical pretty funny just the same. If nothing else, it'll just be something to tide you over until the movie comes out. There's improv, audience participation and the jokes promise to be funny even if you're not of the porno novel's book's cult following. — Jessica Petrocchi

Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company at Verizon Theatre
The band co-headlining with the recently re-formed Bad Company at Verizon is named Lynyrd Skynyrd. Sometimes, though, a name is just a name: The Lynyrd Skynyrd that put out classics like “What's Your Name?,” “Saturday Night Special” and “Sweet Home Alabama” died with Ronnie Van Zant in a plane crash in 1977. Go see this show if you want to see a mostly intact Bad Company lineup. Don't go expecting anything of note from Gary Rossington — the lone original Skynyrd member in that group's current lineup — and company. — Stephen Young

The Appleseed Cast at Dada
The Appleseed Cast's April release, Illumination Ritual, shows a band that has come full-circle and returned to its emo roots after venturing heavily into post-rock territory on its previous two releases, Peregrine and Sagarmartha. Expect a somewhat disjunctive set with tight vocals and clean guitars on some songs, and a decidedly experimental vibe on many of the others. — SY

Open Studios at CentralTrak
The UT Dallas artist residency is currently hosting eight artists, two of which — Olaniyi Rasheed Akindiya and Oto Hudec — are visiting from abroad. Tonight, you can get a chance to mingle with the whole bunch, all the while getting a glimpse into their creative processes. — Elaine Sun

Tedeschi Trucks Band at House of Blues
When deciding to marry or move-in with someone, you've got a lot of things to consider. One checking account or two? Which coffee maker should we keep? How gently can you tell someone that their collection of 1992 Dream Team cups from McDonalds are not nice enough to serve drinks in at a dinner party? That stuff is tough enough, but what do you do if you're both musicians with successful blues-rock projects? If you're Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, you combine the two acts into one Grammy-winning outfit. The couple that plays together stays together, it seems. — SY

Sam Anderson at Twilite Lounge
A few weeks after Twilite's recent grand opening, the place still features that undeniable new bar smell. Help the owners continue to break the place in a bit while enjoying a local brew and intimate sets from Quaker City Night Hawks frontman Sam Anderson. — Cory Graves
