Watch Amanda Palmer Kill It.

There's a lot going on around North Texas this Wednesday, but let's not lose our heads over it.

And we mean that quite literally. You've got a lot to live for, so maybe play it extra safe today. For instance, if your job, say, requires you to walk around in an oversized taco suit advertising $1 tacos, it's probably best to avoid things like skatingboarding into oncoming traffic .

It's just an idea. Plus, there's a lot of happenings you won't want to miss because you're dead or laid up. Just saying. — Cory Graves

Smallpools at House of Blues
Smallpools has only been a band since 2013 and the Los Angeles-based indie-poppers barely released its debut LP back in March. Still, after the band performed at the Suburbia Festival and another House of Blues show last summer there's plenty of people in Dallas that know every word to the band's single “Dreaming.” Grizfolk opens. — Dominique Goncalves

An Evening With Amanda Fucking Palmer at Granada Theater (Sold Out)
Poet, storyteller, singer, shouter, pianist, money-borrower, blogger, TED talker and ukulele performer, Amanda Palmer is a badass of the most well-rounded a variety as they come. And if you didn't already cop a ticket to catch what's sure to be a tour de force display from rock 'n' roll's reigning glam punk queen, well, you're out of luck, because this sucker's been long sold out. — CG

The English Beat at Kessler Theater
Ska heroes The English Beat will be ripping up Bob Marley posters performing with the Dallas ska kids in Rude King out in Oak Cliff. I bet they play “Mirror in the Bathroom.” — Trace McCaslin

Jonas Martin Solo “Acoustic” at Twilite Lounge (Free)
Goodnight Ned keys man, and sometimes solo performer, Jonas Martin will play solo, not really acoustic, at Twilite. Keyboards need power, man. — CG

Mates of State at Dada
Formed in 1997 — the same year as The White Stripes, mind you — Mates of State has been doing the indie duo thing longer than most. The husband-wife duo of the organ and synth-playing Kori Gardner and drumming Jason Hammel were also one of the first acts to make us utter the whole it-sounds-like-so-many-more-than-two-people cliche. So what, these two lovebirds are a trip to watch and listen to. — Lauren Rushing

Totally '80s Sing-Along at Alamo Drafthouse
Whereas the Alamo has earned its fair share of headlines over the years for kicking out patrons for speaking during screenings, singing and dancing are not only allowed in these events, but encouraged. They even hand out prop microphones to make you really feel like you're really belting it out. And, as we discovered at a recent '90s themed version of this same event, these sing-alongs are actually a ton of fun. — Angela Jones

Anchorman at Sundown (Free)
Remember that time Will Ferrell dropped by Sundown? This will be sort of like that, except for not really at all. Ferrell's classic Ron Burgundy flick will be playing for free up on the rooftop patio, though, so all is not lost. — CG
