Be A Badass Over Here.
Sometimes you've just got to take life as it comes.
For example, say you're the frontman of a band that's playing a big music festival in Holland. Let's also say you're walking atop the audience while singing and somebody tosses a full cup of beer your way from the back of the crowd. What do you do?
If it were us, we'd catch that sucker mid-flight, throw it back in one gulp and toss the empty cup aside like it's just something we do every day. Oh, you know, the usual.
Other times, though, you've just got to grab life by the junk and show it who's boss. For instance, when life throws you a Monday, you head out to a place like one of the following and show it what's up. — Cory Graves
Neil deGrasse Tyson at Winspear Opera House
If astrophysicists are your cup of tea, allow yourself to succumb to the gravitational pull of the sexiest one alive today at the Winspear Opera House, where he'll touch on everything from Star Wars to Gravity in his “An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies” talk. — Chrissi Chetwood
The Weepies at Granada Theater
You may have heard The Weepies in the Zach Braff film Wish I Was Here. The husband-wife duo started making music a few years ago and have become pretty well known in the indie community. Carsie Blanton opens. — Diamond Victoria
Tenement, Big Zit, Radioactivity, Sin Motivo at Rubber Gloves
Earlier this month, Wisconsin punk trio Tenement released its first album in four years — and 80-minute epic of a double album fresh off the presses from Don Giovanni Records entitled Predatory Headlights . With them, comes the raw grit of Radioactivity, Sin Motivo and more. $10. No jerks. — Evan Henry
William Fitzsimmons at Kessler Theater
If you're looking for a relaxing night to put your mind to ease before bed, check out William Fitzsimmons at The Kessler tonight. While his most recent album Lions didn't break new ground in the folk scene, it doesn't fall short of what is expected, either. Fitzsimmons reveals heartfelt and insightful stories throughout the album even though the authenticity is questionable at times (this gent has apparently been through hell), it still makes for a mellow and esoteric listen. — CC
Dick Tracy at Alamo Drafthouse
We all loved Dick Tracy when it came out in 1990, but I bet nobody under 30 realized it was Madonna, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman and Warren friggin' Beatty in all that makeup and comic book glamour at the time. Or that Tracy basically invented the Apple Watch. It's easy to see why it's the only '30s gangster film for kids that matters. Or exists at al for that matter. — DV
Badass Jazz at The Underpass
A quick reminder: Just because the Amsterdam Bar decided to shut 'er down back in March, that didn't put an end to local jazz master Shelley Carroll's Bad Ass Jazz nights. Dallas' favorite, long-running weekly jazz night simply moved 500 feet up the street to its new home at The Underpass, where it still hasn't managed to muster quite the same level of enthusiasm it enjoyed at its former home. In fact, if the Facebooks is to be believed, this might be the last month for the Grammy-winning saxophonist's residency if folks don't start showing up. In this case, it's really up to you. — CG
