Have a Taste of Dallas, Muse on the News With Michael Che or Trevor Noah, Fly With The Eagles, Hunt For Ghosts, or Go On a Tipsy Bike Ride.

Looking for something different to do this weekend? You could always follow in the footstep of this British man, who recently made tacos out of his own amputated foot. And because trying new things isn’t as fun when you’re by yourself, he invited 10 buddies over to munch on his former flesh with him.

Nine out of 10 thought it was pretty good.

But human leg meat isn’t the easiest thing to come by. And friends willing to eat it with you are even rarer.

Fortunately, there are loads of other ways for you and your buds to spend the weekend than sitting around eating each other. And thanks to the following list, they’re easier to come by, too. — Cory Graves


Charley Crockett at The Statler Ballroom
Dallas/California/Louisiana/South Texas/New York native Charley Crockett brings his throwback boogie to the throwback hotel. Oh tay! An official after-party follows at The Statler’s Scout bar, where Elaina Kay performs. — CG

Trevor Noah at WinStar World Casino and Resort (Sold Out)
The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah is coming to The Pavilion to do his world famous stand-up routine for us Dallasites. Noah’s deadpan humour, observational comedy, and political satire set him apart from many other comedians, and his show will be one you do not want to miss. — Kelly Benjamin

Caroline Rose at The Rustic
The former country-tinged singer-songwriter has blossomed wonderfully into a much more interestying, synth-tinged pop artist. Her lyrics are as satirical and on-point as ever, now delivered in a much more palatable and true-to-herself package. — CG

New Found Glory at House of Blues
The Godfathers of Pop-Punk are still at it after more than 20 years together, releasing a new album last year. But they’ll be bringing along a “wheel of songs” to keep the set list both fresh from night to night, and to make sure plenty of the old hits get their due. Bayside and The Movielife open. — CG

Roger Creager at Billy Bob’s
The award winning Texas country singer has a love of salt water. He frequently snorkels with dolphins, spear fishes, scuba dives and a load of other adventurous stuff we wish we could do. He often puts that spontaneity into his tunes, which he’ll bring to the World’s Largest Honky-Tonk Friday. — Sidney Johnson

Taste of Dallas at Gas Monkey Live
Sample bites from 50 Dallas area restaurants and tunes from 40 local and national acts throughout the weekend. Chris Knight and the world’s greatst Def Leppard tribute play on Friday. We also hear there’ll be a cement truck mixing up 2,400 gallons of Scotch cocktails. — CG

Robb Bank$ at Trees
Robb Bank$ is the oldest son of Shaggy. The 23-year-old prefers to rap rather than follow in Mr. Bombastic’s reggae footsteps, and the prolific Cash Money signee has, thus far, been successful enough in his own right that most folks don’t realize or even care to mention his lineage. Diego Money, GwapMizzle, Pyrex Pirates and JG also perform. — CG

Snow Tha Product at South Side Music Hall
Slowly creeping into the spotlight, hip-hop artist Snow Tha Product makes her way to South Side Music Hall to play some of her latest stylings. Since 2011, she had released her first album, Unorthodox, through an independent label. Songs like “Waste of Time” and her breakout single, “Holy Shit,” have caught a ton of attention from hip-hop enthusiasts and fans alike. — KB

After sets at Coachella, Bonnaroo and before they hit Lollapalooza in August, the L.A. punks hit Dallas on a headlining tour. Destroy Boys opens. — CG

Soluna: White Rabbit Red Rabbit at Wyly Theatre
Every time this play is put on it is different. That is because each actor is only allowed to perform it once in their career. That is because the whole idea behind the experimental play is that the actor hasn’t read the script or been given any type of overview of what they’re going to be doing. From there they just have to go with it. — CG

Shakespeare in the Park: The Taming of the Shrew at Samuell Grand Park
Tucked away off of I-30, there’s a park with a small amphitheater, the Samuel Grand Amphitheater. During the summer months, Shakespeare Dallas puts on two shows in the park. This year, they take on the classic, The Comedy of Errors, and The Taming of the Shrew. A recent show we attended began at 8:15, as the sun was setting behind the trees. The amphitheater allows for food and adult beverages (no liquor) to be brought in, so it’s the perfect date night or gathering with a group of friends. Just bring a blanket or your lawn chairs, or you can even rent chairs there, and you can feast on finger foods and beverages before the show. — Angela Jones

Michael Che at Majestic Theatre
Live, from Downtown, it’s Michael Che — half of SNL‘s Weekend Update segment, the first African-American to hold the position. Along with Colin Jost, they also represent the first-ever male-male co-anchors. This Friday, while the show’s on hiatus, he keeps up the weekend work live in Dallas. — CG

Different Strokes at Twilite Lounge (Dallas)
Maybe Someday there will be a better Strokes cover band, but that day is far away. And even then, you’ll think of that band “Is This It?” Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about that because you have these guys. — Obed Manuel

Quintron and Miss Pussycat at Three Links
This husband-and-wife musical and puppeteering team straight out of New Orleans brings its eclectic type of entertainment — known as “swamp tech” — to Deep Ellum tonight. Fun fact: Quintron is known for inventing the crazy machines he uses in his performances, such as the “spit machine” and the “disco light machine.” Sailor Poon opens. — Erika Lambreton

Motez at It’ll Do Club
Baghdad-bred producer Motez frequently breaks the internet with his remixes of popular jams. This weekend, he’ll do his best not to break the light-up dance floor at It’ll Do as he packs it out. — CG

Chris D’Elia at Majestic Theatre
Hey, it’s that guy that played Whitney Cummings’ boyfriend on Whitney. Of course, you probably don’t get that reference, or else the show would have lasted more than two seasons. He’ll attempt to leave a more lasting impression tonight with his stand-up. — CG

Taste of Dallas at Gas Monkey Live
Augustana, JB & the Moonshine Band, and a Journey tribute perform Saturday. — CG

Clueless at Inwood Theatre
Skip this ’90s classic? As if! Alicia Silverstone sadly never topped her performance as Cher, a naïve but well-meaning Beverly Hills teenager navigating high school, drama and dating in this loose adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma. And if you don’t like this movie, well, then you’re just a virgin who can’t drive. — Kip Mooney
