Relive The '90s Tonight At Billy Bob's.

It's likely that, due to the midweek Independence Day celebrations, you've had a few days off in a row now. You've probably been going at it pretty hard, so you should probably pace yourself today. Start out with some $1 Bellinis, then walk off a little of that day-drunk as you check out the new stuff over at Kettle Art. Then start easing back into it with a pair of really solid bills on both sides of the Metroplex before going into to full-on dance party mode at Beauty Bar. You can always sleep when you're dead.

Glamorama at Beauty Bar
When the New East Elm joint the It'll Do Club re-opened a few weeks back, Blake Ward's weekly Glamorama event at Beauty Bar moved from Friday to Saturday nights. This week, he'll be joined during his ever-popular weekly dance party by Shuttle, who is taking a break from touring with his band Passion Pit to make the event.

Summerland Tour at Billy Bob's
When you asked us if we wanted tickets to go see Everclear, Sugar Ray, Lit, Gin Blossoms and Marcy Playground all on the same bill, we brushed you off pretty quickly. Sorry, bro. It's not that we don't think these bands could combine for one pretty killer greatest hits of the '90s album, it's just that we kind of thought you were just pranking us. Don't worry; we looked into it, and Marcy Playground is totally still a band.

Bellini Fest at Patrizio's
Two of history's greatest inventions are brunch and the fruity champagne drinks that make day-drinking a totally acceptable practice. For the month of July, Patrizio's six Metroplex locations are offering up $1 Bellinis. Nothing like a little hair of the dog on a lazy Saturday.

The Ripple Effect at Kettle Art
Kettle Art has been up and running in its Deep Ellum location for eight years now, but tonight's opening of The Ripple Effect marks the first show curated by Amber Campagna, the daughter of Kettle owner and Deep Ellum legend Frank Campagna. The pieces by Brad Albright, Clint Scism, Corey Godfrey and a dozen others will all be water-themed.

And So I Watch You From Afar at Dada
The brutally loud and challenging squeals of And So I Watch You From Afar's ultra-heavy riffage was easily the biggest standout from this year's Bro Fest at Dada. That's pretty impressive, considering there were a couple of dozen punk and metal bands that played that day on the fest's three stages. Zechs Marqiuse (who was direct support for the secret At The Drive-In show earlier this year at Trees), Austin wall-of-sound electronic duo Zorch and Dallas instrumental act Rocket Arm (who pull off the near-impossible feat of combining hardcore and math rock in a way that somehow doesn't suck) fill out the rather impressive lineup from Parade of Flesh.
