'Tis Better To Give.
Good news earthlings, Jose Canseco's come up with a plan to nuke Mars in order to make it more habitable more quickly. Before you naysay, he says he's put a lot of thought into it, you guys.
But honestly, why would you ever want to leave? I reckon there's not near as many top notch happenings taking place on Mars this evening — unlike, say, right here in North Texas. Here are but a few. Trust us, we've put a lot of thought into it. — Cory Graves
Shakespeare in the Bar Presents: The Tragedy of King Richard III at Small Brewpub
Shakespeare in the Bar is quickly becoming one of Dallas' most sought-after tickets — as it should, really. The basic premise is pretty rad, after all: You go to a bar, you watch a Shakespeare play performed live and, the whole time, you drink and be merry. Currently, Shakespeare in the Bar is on its fifth production. After four performances of comedies, the troupe has now moved onto its first tragedy, Richard III. It's a bold choice, considering how comedies tend to be crowd pleasers. Read more about the show here. — Angela Jones
Bell Witch at Double Wide
Seattle minimalist doom metal duo Bell Witch headlines tonight's Double Wide bill. Other worth additions to the lineup include experimental Chicago collective Wrekmeister Harmonies and Dallas' own Dead to a Dying World, a band that earned the favor of both the metal crowd and the symphony-loving NPR lot after releasing one of the better albums of the year. — CG
