Go Beyond The Pale With Machine Head At Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill, Jam With Kwinton Gray At Independent Bar & Kitchen And Experience The Color Purple At Music Hall At Fair Park.

Tomorrow night, the U.S. and Canada’s eyes will be on the moon.

Why? Well, come early Wednesday morning, the moon will undergo three full transformations. It’ll be a super moon, a blue moon and we’ll see a total lunar eclipse. Wild, huh?

It’ll be the first time since 1866 that there will be an eclipse of a full moon, so if you do head out, you’ll be experiencing a once in a lifetime visual. So do yourself a favor and make sure your camera lenses are all polished up and whatnot so you can snap some good photos of the moon that night.

So while that’s an awesome natural event to look forward to, it’s still a whole day away. While you anxiously await the gorgeous sight that we’ll see tomorrow night, do feel free to use the following list of happenings to pass the time.
