Get Good With BADBADNOTGOOD At Trees, Join The Dollar Taco Club At Bowls & Tacos And Stay Actin’ Crazy With Action Bronson At South Side Music Hall.
Natural disasters have seemingly come one after another in various places. South Texas. Puerto Rico. Florida. Mexico. And as you know, we tried our best to help out where we could.
And local barista Jesus Galvan has helped organize a fundraiser this Saturday at Top Ten Records in Oak Cliff for a group of rescue workers in Mexico in the hope of reminding people that just the TV news crews have left affected areas doesn’t mean the people there no longer need assistance.
The fundraiser will benefit the Topos of Mexico and will feature live music, slam poetry performances and raffle giveaways. He hopes that people who attend understand that any little bit helps at times of disaster.
While Galvan’s hopes for the event are great, the fundraiser is still a couple of days away, and there is all sorts of cool shit going on tonight. So feel free to use the list below to plan your Thursday night out. — Obed Manuel
BADBADNOTGOOD at Trees
The group caught Tyler, The Creator’s eye early on in its career and haven’t stopped receiving well earned praise since. New band member Leland Whitty, a man with many talents, has proven to be a great fit for BBNG. The new album IV is the group’s most flexible and jazz-forward piece of work yet. Apparently, the changes embraced by the boys has allowed its sound to shift in a new direction and we are here for it. — Marlene Núñez
