Look Into Big Eyes Up In Denton Tonight.
December is upon us, and that means that you're probably being bombarded with all sorts of lists — be it Holiday wish lists or your friends' definitive Best Albums of 2012 lists.
Let's be real: The only reason you look at either of these lists is to find that one hilarious misplaced item that nobody but your friend liked.
Hey, it happens.
In the meantime, steel yourself for another long month and use these events to tide yourself over until the holiday break.
Scaraoke with DJ Mr. Rid
If you like karaoke (and, unless aside from fun-haters, that's everyone) but prefer your karaoke a little more weird, you can amp things up a notch at Scaraoke tonight.
Yells at Eels at Texas Theater
Yells at Eels, recent Dallas Observer Music Awards winners for Best Jazz Group, are teaming up with Revolutionary Pants for a super jazzy fundraiser tonight. If you haven't heard of Revolutionary Pants, know this: They're a non-profit that specials in creating unique urban spaces and communities. Donations in increments of $20 will get you into the show beforehand. Otherwise, it's $25 at the door.
Handel's Messiah at Bass Performance Hall
Well, it is the holidays (you can stop griping; it's December now), so if you need an extra boost of spirit (imagine a Jesus-y cheerleader), the Fort Worth Symphony will be performing Handel's Messiah, which is the second best opera that Handel ever composed. His best work is the hard-to-find Messiah 2: The Reckoning.
Big Eyes at Rubber Gloves
Fresh off of the release of their second album, Back from the Moon, Seattle's Big Eyes will be tearing up the South with their brand of pop-infused garage rock. Back from the Moon is an infectious foot-tapper of an album, one that begs for movement in any capacity. Move yourself over to Rubber Gloves tonight to catch Big Eyes in action tonight.
