Take Shots Of Mezcal With Swervedriver, Celebrate RPBGV’s New Album At Off The Record And Make Amends With Touche Amore At Club Dada.
If you’re dreading the start of the work week, be appreciative of the fact that you have a job and that you don’t have to resort to means that are, so to speak, outside the realm of legality.
Some folks, like Sean Harris of Indiana, aren’t so fortunate and are to a certain degree forced to, say, rob gas stations. That’s what Harris did last week. But after Harris made off with some snacks and cigarettes, his car ran out of gas, leaving him stranded on the side of the road and primed and ready for police to arrest him.
So yeah, even if your gig is kind of boring, you’re probably much smarter than guys like Harris, and even if it’s just a holdover job, you could make the most of it. But if you’re going to plan a heist, at least make sure that your getaway car is all gassed up. And speaking of planning, here’s a list of things to do tonight. Plan away, Dallas. — Obed Manuel

Flatfoot 56 at Three Links
Flatfoot 56 has a peculiar calling card: bagpipes. The Chicago outfit plays a style of Celtic Punk that’s comparable to that of Dropkick Murphys, so if that’s your cup of tea, come on down. Stinky Gringos, Shaka, Flip & the Combined Effort and Ratchet Action Cult also perform. — OM
