Sing Some Gobbledygook with Sigur Ros.
So, you hate Mondays. You hate the weekend being over. You hate having to go to back to work.
Hey, we're with you.
But there's some solace to be had on this gray morning. If nothing else, we can take comfort in the fact that today isn't last Monday, during which time we had to put up with all those would-be comedians ad pranksters reveling in the fact that it was April Fool's Day.
Did your heart skip a beat with your sister told you she was pregnant? Did part of you die when the folks at Fraternity of Eagles tried to pretend like their poo had collapsed into itself?
Those days are behind us. Today, we don't have to put up with that bull. Instead, your options include taking in a show, taking in a screening or taking in copious amounts of beer.
This Monday ain't so bad, actually. No joke.
Sigur Ros and Oneohtrix Point Never at Verizon Theatre
After going on hiatus in 2009 so frontman Jonsi could explore a bit of a solo route and release his charming Go LP in 2012, the old gang reunited to release Valtari in 2012, which is what the endearing (if nonsensical) melodic post-rock trio comes to town supporting tonight. Lest you're concerned this is just a brief reunion from the group: Later this year, they'll release Kveikur, their seventh LP. Animal Collective-approved experimental Brooklyn outfit Oneohtrix Point Never opens.
Beer Olympics at Barcadia
Skee ball. Giant Jenga, Arcade games. Tonight's basically our average Monday night at Barcadia. One exception: If you're in the service industry and you hit the above link and do the proper RSVP thing, you'll be eligible to win some prizes from Portland-based Deschutes Brewery for doing what you'd be doing anyway.
Dallas International Film Festival
This sucker's still going strong. Tonight, we recommend checking out pimp documentary Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp and the locally produced Pit Stop.
