Smile Like You Mean It With The Killers At The Toyota Music Factory, Take A Trip To The Blood Bank With Bon Iver At The Bomb Factory And Eat Some Pie At Norma’s Café.

What would you do if you saw a horde of Tyrannosaurus Rexes coming at you?

Well, chances are it’s probably a bunch of nerds getting together to celebrate the Cretaceous Period, as was the case in Portland yesterday. Dozens of folks gathered at the Monument Square to celebrate their joint fandom of T.Rex dressed as T.Rex in those costumes you’ve probably seen on YouTube — you know, people skateboarding and whatnot.

Turns out a couple of science fans organized the event on Facebook as a Cretaceous Period Party and even asked for someone to show up for a group photo because of T. Rex’s small arm problems.

So while we aren’t aware of any dope T. Rex costume-themed gatherings in Dallas this week, there is still a bunch of stuff to do in town this week as you can see from the list below.
