Make Max Fischer's List Of Things To Do Today.
We've got just one quick pro tip to share with you if you are, in fact, planning on going out tonight. If you happen to be wielding a Zelda Master Sword when you're out on the town tonight and a would-be assailant — perhaps your significant other's ex — throws a flower pot at your head, do not simply let the pot hit you in the head.
For one thing, it'll likely cause a pretty huge gash and put quite the damper on your evening plans. Also, you should probably just go ahead and smash that sucker open with your sword as as one Texas man did this week.
Hey, you never know what sort of hearts, rupees, bombs or arrows might lie within.
Sharon Corr at Kessler Theater
Even after achieving international success in the late '90s/early '00s with her Celtic-influenced pop-rock outfit The Corrs, Sharon Corr is still nowhere near the type of megastar in the States that she is in her home country of Ireland. There, she serves as a judge on that country's version of The Voice, which makes tonight's performance the international equivalent of catching Adam Levine or Usher in a room as intimate as The Kessler. Which is to say, opportunities of this nature don't necessarily come around every night. — Cory Graves
Oak Cliff Pub Quiz at Ten Bells Tavern
Let's face it: You already know which '90s alt-rocker bro you are, which state you should really live in, how you would die in Game of Thrones, and which Clarissa Explains It All character you are. Online quizzes are mostly just a waste of time. Pub quizzes, however, are the kind of time-waste where you get to drink booze and win prizes, which most of the time turn out to be free booze. Kicking off this new weekly quiz out in the O.C. are local musicians Scott Porter and Grant Jones, with between-round entertainment provided by local comedians. — Cory Graves
Rushmore at Alamo Drafthouse
Leading up to the release of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel this Friday, the folks at Alamo will be showing the director's past work every single day this week in reverse chronological order. Tonight, they're digging out 1998's Rushmore, a film that was inspired by a Dallas private school. — CG
Wednesday Night Jam at The Prophet Bar
Every week, Erykah Badu's musical director R.C. Williams and his band The Gritz lead Dallas best and most consistent weekly event in town. The highlight of their regular mid-week's jam session is the open-mic portion, when The Gritz are joined by some of the best musicians and vocalists around. And anyone who has followed the event for long knows that folks like Talib Kweli and George Clinton are just as likely to drop in on the session as are members of the Cannabinoids, badass jazz host/sax wizard Shelly Carroll, Dallas' next up-and-coming emcees or even Ms. Badu herself. — CG
