Smash It Up.
Have you ever realized how much cool shit rubber bands can do? From opening stuck pickle jars and removing stripped screws to
carving exploding watermelons, there's quite a bit these versatile little bits of rubber can do.
About the one thing they can't do? Help you sort out your evening's plans. Fortunately, you've got us around for that. — Cory Graves
Sarah Koenig at Winspear Opera House
It's not exactly a 13th episode of Serial, but just one day after delivering the keynote address at Fort Worth's Podcast Movement event, Sarah Koenig will speak to a Dallas crowd, likely mining similar territory. Hey, it beats a shrimp sale at the crab crib. — CG
Hexes at Lola's
Portland grime-wave duo Hexes stops through DFW once again, and unfortunately, the band's sound has us missing Crystal Castles real bad. I suppose instead of sulking about it, we should just head on over to Lola's to ease the pain. Fort Worth's dub narcotic wizards Tidals and Squanto bounce bass-heavy ambiance across the dense space to start things off. — Evan Henry
Bukkake Moms at Rubber Gloves
Bukkake Moms is back from tour. To celebrate their safe return, Denton's favorite cybergoth, no-wave punk quintet is playing a show at Gloves. Locations, Cerulean Giallo and Neil Coburn help mash the estranged aesthetic into some slimy pop soup. It's only a dollar for the night. — EH
Super Smash Bros. at Alamo Drafthouse
What's better than playing Super Smash Bros. on a 40-foot movie screen? Absolutely nothing. Head to The Alamo Drafthouse to kick some Nintendo ass. —Lauren Rushing
