Go Under Magic Spells With Alice Glass At Club Dada, Be A Rebel For The Kicks With Portugal. The Man At The Bomb Factory And Celebrate The 20th Rock Lottery In Denton.

The Red River Showdown is coming up next weekend. Get hype!

Or not if you’re from Dallas and know exactly how much of a shit show it is when all those Okies come to town. Don’t laugh so soon there, Austinites. You guys suck, too.

Both fanbases roll into town and cause a ruckus, not only to the crowds at the fair but also to anyone hoping to have a fun night out. Folks in Dallas know better than to head out on the weekend of the OU-Texas game, so local businesses miss out on big bucks for no reason other than the fact that the entertainment scenes in Dallas get overrun with people who get so hype about what, at the end of the day, is an amateur league.

So hey, here’s a list of events to keep you busy through the week as well as a busy Saturday full of events where you are unlikely to run into all those overhyped college football fans. Peruse and plan accordingly. — Obed Manuel
