Catch The Drift.
A tourist at Yellowstone was gored by a bison on Friday when she turned her back on the animal, presumably to take a selfie.
We've said it before, but you wind up missing a lot when you spend more of your out and about time snapping pics with your phone than actually taking in the sights, smells and sounds going on around you — like, y'know, charging beasts.
Here's some things you definitely won't want to be missing tonight.
Rush at American Airlines Center
Rush has been together 40 years now, a fact that the pioneering prog rock trio is celebrating with this current tour. All these years later, plenty of questions still abound, like: What about the voice of Geddy Lee? And how did it get so high?
Slang at Three Links
Atlanta art rockers, Slang, have been compared to early Talking Heads, only here the David Byrne figure has been replaced by weirdo ramblings of a character with a thick German accent. Local outfits Hawk vs Dove and The Mercury Rocket open.
Hop Along at Dada
Philly grunge folk quartet came out of nowhere with its 2012 debut, Get Disowned. Somehow we don't think that'll be the case with its follow up, Painted Shut, which was released earlier this month. Yeah, you're sure to see that one crop up on at least a few of those vaunted year-end lists come December. Field Mouse and Sad Cops open. For our money, the latter might just be one of the best high school bands in North Texas. — CG
Scanners at Alamo Drafthouse
If there's anything that movies about people with mind-reading abilities almost universally seem to teach us, it's that we're probably better off not knowing what other people are thinking most of the time. In this 1981 Canadian sci-fi flick, a couple hundred humans were given the gift/curse of telepathy/telekinesis by an experimental drug their mothers were taking while pregnant. Some of those ended up barely able to function in normal society, while others became hellbent on world domination. Think about it.
Pretty in Pink at Alamo Drafthouse
For those that can't seem to keep John Hughes' two Molly Ringwald-starring flicks straight, this is the one where she rejects the loveable, comic relief providing nerd in favor of a makeout sesh with the hunky, but slightly hateable douche nugget. Not specific enough? Um, well this is the one that plays OMD's “If You Leave” at the end, whereas Sixteen Candles ended with the Thompson Twins' “If You Were Here.” Got it?
