Say Cello To Some Classical Music.
Tax returns are due today, y'all.
Hope you remembered! If not? Ugh. Better get to work — and, like, super fast. If you're in this boat, hell, you can just forget about going out today or tonight.
If you somehow find the time, you probably won't have the cash.
As for the rest of you — the ones who were responsible enough not to put your civic responsibilities off until the last minute — there are, actually, some interesting options going down tonight for flexing your mind and your muscles alike.
Just be sure to stretch first.
2Cellos at the Winspear Opera House
No sense in knocking cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser for their choice of band names. For one thing, they're Croatian, so maybe some cleverness is lost in translation; for another, they're cellists working the opera house circuit, and, OK, there's probably something to be said for having a name that the blue hairs can immediately “get.” Yet, make no mistake, 2Cellos is not your grandmother's classical outfit — or so goes the concept, which finds these two playing covers of popular songs (see: their Ellen DeGeneres-approved cover of Michael Jackson's “Smooth Criminal”) all fast and furious like. These dudes really put the “hip” in “hip replacement.” Cheap joke, I know.
Soilwork, Jeff Loomis, Wretched, Blackguard and Onward We March at Trees
Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band that's been playing Swedish melodic death metal since 1995. They're called Soilwork because [insert joke about you soiling your pants because their riffs are so loud and heavy here]. OK, that's not true, but they do have a new album to pimp out at this one.
Katy Trail Social Run at Relativity Outdoors

Paul Slavens at The Crown and Harp
Guzzle down some $3 wells and domestics as pianist and KXT radio host Paul Slavens turns your zaniest song suggestion titles into all-out songs on the spot for a tip.
Street Gnar, War Party, Year of the Bear and Midnite Society at The Wherehouse
Fort Worth label Dreamy Soundz and Dallas label Dallas Distortion Music team up to present this show, which finds Ketucky-based lo-fi pop outfit Street Gnar topping a bill of some of our own region's finest purveyors of the same genre.
