It’s not Thursday. We know this. But we tell you now so you’ve got plenty of time to plan for how to best top it with your own embarrassing bleached spikes pic. We’ll even help you plan out your evening so that you’ve got one less thing weighing on your mind. — Cory Graves
BøRNS at Granada Theater (Sold Out)
BØRNS is an architect of sugar-coated glam-pop, akin to Marc Bolan. The artist’s Dallas show has been sold out for some time now, no doubt thanks to the success of his arena-ready radio hit “Electric Love.” BØRNS has played more sold-out shows than he has fingers; a common feat for an artist still in the honeymoon stages of pop stardom.

Elvis’ infamous hip shaking was indicative of the apocalypse. Black has big shoes to fill this Sunday. — CC
Riders Against the Storm at Three Links
Riders Against The Storm is an Austin, Texas mainstay with a sound deeply rooted in everything from authentic Afro-funk to hip-hop. OXYMORRONS and Cure for Paranoia will open things up in typically funky fashion. — CC
