Embrace Your Inner Hipster With Lord Huron At The Bomb Factory, Discuss The Hike At Mudsmith And Button Mash At The Cidercade.

The big story this weekend was Hurricane Harvey making landfall and forcing thousands of people to evacuate their homes in the Houston area to head north in search of emergency relief and shelter.

Dallas has taken in more than 400 evacuees at multiple emergency shelters around the city. But after receiving a formal request from the state government to prepare the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center to take in more people escaping the storm, that count could rise to about 5,000. 

So now more than in most events in recent history, area non-profits are in need of donations and general help. Anyone interested should visit the City of Dallas’ resource website and find the best way for them to contribute to relief efforts. We’ll keep you posted on any other emergency relief efforts in the city and how you can help the affected.

All that being said, here is a list of things going on today if you’re feeling the need to decompress after a difficult weekend for everyone here in Texas.
