Keep It Low.
Have trouble getting out of bed in the morning? There’s a new app that might help. It works by loudly playing a song to wake you, then presenting you with a puzzle. As long as you are actively working on the puzzle, the music plays softly. You stop, it cranks back up until the puzzle is solved.
Hey, whatever it takes. But while puzzles are a good motivator to get out of bed, having to solve one to figure out what you’re going to do tonight isn’t. So we won’t make you jump through any hoops. Just keep scrolling. — Cory Graves
Generationals at Dada
After putting out four records in four years, super-poppy New Orleans indie rock duo Generationals hasn’t put anything new out in three years. Or, well, they hadn’t until new single “Avery” dropped just a few days ago. Not surprisingly, it picks right up where their old stuff left off, with the addition of maybe a couple new keyboards. In other words, it falls right in line with the stuff that got them ad placements for Bloomingdales and Reese’s, among others. — CG

Roger and Me at The Magnolia
While much of Michael Moore’s output can feel like someone delivering an ALL CAPS RANT about something that definitely sucks, while failing to present any viable solutions, his best films – Roger and Me and Bowling for Columbine – focus on the devastation caused by a few reckless people. In this case, General Motors CEO Roger Smith’s closing of several auto plants in Flint, Michigan. — Kip Mooney
Kinky Boots at Music Hall at Fair Park
The Cyndi Lauper/Harvey Fierstein Broadway musical gets its first Dallas Summer Musicals staging tonight. The fabulous, high-heel clad spectacle will be put on a number of times through Sunday, April 9. — CG
