Play A Train Song With Todd Snider At The Kessler, Go Down By The River With Milky Chance At House Of Blues And Sample Braindead Brewing’s Galactic Federation Of Might IPA.

Post Malone is…controversial? Divisive?

Say what you will about the Grapevine rapper, but he was, per Nielsen numbers, one of the 10 most consumed artists of 2017. He had (count ’em): “129,000 album sales, 2,716,000 digital single sales and almost 2.5 billion streams these last 12 months,” as we wrote about in yesterday’s White Noise column.

In other news, Selena Gomez posted a photo of her visiting the Grand Prairie home she lived in until she was 13, a post that got more than seven million likes on Instagram, as of press date. She apparently knocked on the door, but no one was home. Talk about bad luck.

While neither of these two mega stars have shows coming up any time soon in Big D, there’s still plenty to do between now and when they announce another show in town, like the following list of things to do in Dallas today.

Todd Snider at Kessler Theater
Snider’s 2016 album Eastside Bulldog came to existence very much as a result of the way Snider likes to live: pretty drunk. Still, the album is “brilliantly bizarre,” as Rolling Stone puts it, meaning this show should be one with that quality (we hope). Rorey Carroll and Kristy Kruger also perform.

Temple of Angels, Rosegarden Funeral, Polystarra at The Nines
At this free-as-always show, you’ll be able to engage your love of both emo and shoegaze sounds. Temple of Angels, one of Austin’s newest bands, will headline.

Milky Chance at House of Blues
Even if you don’ know Milky Chance by name, you might know the German trio from its breakout hit “Stolen Dance.” The band’s music is folksy with hints of pop, hip hop with just an edge of blues. Even if you’re not sure what the next track, Milky chance is sure to get your swaying and dancing. Lewis Capaldi opens.

Gravity Lumpkin Super Jam at Deep Ellum Art Company
Prepare for an evening of jazz, rock  and blues with performances from Mr. Molly and Fullymaxxed. And of course, as the usual shindigs go at Deep Ellum Art Company, expect food truck options and a gallery exhibition.

Galactic Federation of Might Day at BrainDead Brewing
One of Dallas’ favorite IPAs will make its return to BrianDead’s taps. The way hoppy Galactic Federation of Might IPA will be available for growler fills. And keep an eye out for our On Tap review later today, as our beer reviewer got an early taste of it.

The Vintage Cocktail Hour at The Nines
Every second Thursday of the month The Nines whips out the good shit in celebration of vintage cocktail culture and burlesque performances by talented starlets. The night will feature a mix of 50’s and 60’s rock music and of course, plenty of risque performances. — Marlene Nuñéz

I Am Not Your Negro Community Screening at Fort Worth Botanic Garden Lecture Hall
KERA and the City of Fort Worth Human Relations Unit present this free screening of James Baldwin’s unfinished book, an exploration of race in America.
