Laugh and Enjoy Some Local Music Tonight.
Friends come and go, significant others cheat, and some of us won't see our families again for another 11 months.
But local music? It's always there. It's your drinking buddy after a shitty day at work. It's the gal pal that says, “Let's just dance it out.”
We should all learn to love it a little bit more — or at the very least appreciate it.
Tonight, you can find it all over the place. And, tonight, none of it will even ask for anything in return. It's all free.
Two Knights, Hank., Bad Times, Losing and Bitch Teeth at Macaroni Island
In honor of the Champaign, Illinois, math rock trio Hank. coming to town tonight, let's do a little arithmetic: Two math rock outfits plus two noise rock bands plus a touring act and a band celebrating a new release equals a free house show in Denton tonight. Everyone's invited. Except you, guy who cut me off in traffic this morning. No jerks allowed, says the Facebook invite.
Sugarfoote and Co. at Addair's
There aren't any more major holidays coming up in the near future, but fret not. Every weekend is a three day weekend says Cody Foote. And, when he and his revolving band of muckabouts are doing their thing every Monday at Adair's, it can sure start to feel that way. After a couple $8 pitchers and a famous Adair's burger, you might think about calling in and taking off Tuesday morning as well.
The Effinays at Sundown
While Sugarfoote and Co. are busy pumping out great country and folk tunes in Deep Ellum, The Effinays will be continuing their Monday night funk residency over on Lower Greenville. Show up early for an out-of-this-world Drunken Goat flatbread and Peach Old Fashioned.
Tony Rock at Arlington Improv
Finally, your non-music option for the night: When your sibling is one of the best at what they do, it can be easy to stick to another line of work. But, in the case of folks like Brent Gretzky, Eddie Payton, Frank Stallone, Don Swayze, Charlie Murphy and Solange Knowles, it's sometimes the markedly more difficult task of trying to make a name for yourself outside of your sibling's shadow that proves much more worthwhile. Chris Rock's younger brother Tony does his thing tonight in Arlington, and tries to prove that he's more than just a sibling of note.
