Let Steve Gunn and Lee Ranaldo Pluck Your Heart Strings, Listen To The Psychedelic Sounds Of Brazil’s Boogarins And Maybe Eat Some Cheese.

OKCupid recently announced that the number of users on the lookout for a one-night stand is at an all-time high during the months of April, May and June. June is the most popular of these months, too, with a 33 percent increase in users looking to hook-up.

There’s no clear reason why. Could be the heat. Could be all that time off. Whatever the reason, there’s no judgement here.

With that in mind, here are some events going on today in and around Dallas  — whatever your goals are for the evening.

Steve Gunn, Lee Ranaldo at Sons of Hermann Hall
Steve Gunn’s Sandy Bull-esque acoustic tone and Sonic Youth co-founder Lee Ranaldo’s masterful strumming make a pairing sure to please guitar enthusiasts, music geeks and concertgoers of all types.

Boogarins at Club Dada
This Brazilian group blends psychedelic rock with ‘60s Tropicália. Boogarins drops by Dada as part of its summer tour to promote its latest album, Lá Vem a Morte.

AJ LeGrand at Sundown at Granada
LeGrand is a singer-songwriter who sings minimal and mellow country ballads.

Tiki Party at Armoury D.E., Black Swan Saloon and High & Tight
Dallas has a depressingly few tiki bars, but tonight you can get your fill of rum cocktails and tropical kitsch at the three bars they’ve dubbed Deep Ellum’s Bermuda Triangle, Black Swan Saloon, Armoury D.E. and High & Tight.

An American in Paris at The Magnolia Theatre
They don’t make actors like they used to. The athleticism and hardwired talent Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron possess put actors in contemporary big budget musicals to shame. The La La Lands of today impress, but An American in Paris dazzles.

Craft Beer, Cheese Pairing at Community Beer Co.
Don’t let wine snobs have all the fun. Join cheesemonger Ali Morgan of Prodigal Farm as she guides drinkers through special edition brews and cheese pairings.

Desperation Rising at Alamo Drafthouse Richardson
Alamo Drafthouse unearths yet another obscure straight-to-video masterpiece. This flick features karate, cocaine, sex and all the indicators of an underground sleaze classic.

The Big Lebowski at Alamo Drafthouse Cedars
The Dude abides.

Chuck Klosterman at the Dallas Museum of Art
Pop culture critic and author of Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, Chuck Klosterman has written about many things – sports, music, TV, porn, serial killers and our culture at large. Klosterman stops in Dallas to promote his latest book, But What if We’re Wrong: Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past.
