Teach Him How To Dance With You.
Not everyone in the Guinness Book of World Records earned their place in the hallowed book thanks to amazing feats of athleticism, endurance, proficiency at an oddly-specific-yet-extreme task or interesting birth defects.
No, some folks, like Richard Gibson are immortalized after doing rather mundane, everyday activities for extended periods of time. Gibson, for instance, simply saved all of his fingernail clippings in a jar for 36 years to get his own name listed in the book.
Start working on your own slightly disgusting claim to fame tonight, and perhaps you too will have your name casually dropped on a nightlife and culture website four decades from now.
Until then, though, here are several other ways to occupy your time. — Cory Graves
Wolf Gang, Sir Sly at Dada
On one of its first trips to town, British symphonic indie-rock/electro-pop hybrid, Wolf Gang opened for Coldplay at American Airlines Center. It's fitting, then, that the, admittedly much more intimate, all-ages gig the band will headline in Deep Ellum tonight will be opened by Sir Sly, an LA-based indie rock trio that's been called a “chillwave Coldplay” by members of the British press. — CG
Black Kids at Three Links
When Florida guitar pop outfit Black Kids signed its deal with Columbia back in 2008, it was almost solely based on the hype the band generated via its MySpace page and the attention thrust upon them by the still-relevant bloggerati. And there was a lot of that. So when the band's debut album flopped, it took the next half-decade off to “load up on college degrees, procreate and work on other things.” Now Black Kids is back, and with a handful of new songs to boot. But let's face it: “I'm Not Going to Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You” is still catchy as all get-out. — CG
Adult Night at Legoland Discovery Center
Usually, the powers that be require any adult that's wishing to check out this Lego wonderland to bring at least one kid — except for one day out of the month. Lucky for you, today is that one day. Go check out all the Legos you can handle at this adults-only event. Make sure and get your tickets from the link above, though, or else they'll be $7 more expensive at the door. — Stephen Young
Year of the Rooster at Wyly Theatre
Odysseus Rex is a pissed off fast food employee. He's been bullied all his life and is now ready to take matters into his own claws. Year of the Rooster is a part of a six-part series by the Elevator Project. And no, no roosters will be harmed during this theatrical extravaganza. A human will play the cock-fighter. BOOM! — Chase Whale
