Shake Off The Monday Blues with Father John Misty.
Hey, look: The cruel mistress that is Monday is back, bringing an end to our sweet, sweet weekend of freedom and turning our fates back toward the proverbial grind.
The good news? If we're forced to endure yet another start to a workweek today — and with a Cinco De Mayo hangover, no less — at least we can take comfort in knowing that there are a number of pleasant distractions to keep us going tonight.
Father John Misty at the Granada
This singer-songwriter, also known as Joshua Tillman, has folk rock down to a science. The former Fleet Foxes drummer is currently out on tour in support of his latest album, Fear Fun, the first he's released since adopting the FJM moniker. The album received rave revues; Foam Magazine calls it a showcase of “his deadpan humor as much as his psych-tinged folk-rock writing chops.”
Chad Valley, Ski Lodge and Diamond Age at Three Links
Hugo Manuel, the mastermind behind the Chad Valley moniker, has been making waves for a few years now in the bedroom electro-pop scene of his native Oxford, England. But, for the past few months, he's been vigorously touring the States. His Dallas stop tonight is one of his last before he returns home to the U.K. Fun Fact: His “Shell Suit” song was featured in the soundtrack to the zombie-rom-com Warm Bodies.
Snarky Puppy At Danâ€™s Sliverleaf
The Denton-based jazz jam band kicks off a two-night engagement at Dan's tonight before heading out on a lengthy international tour in preparation of their next studio album.
Panther City Drink and Draw at Lola's Saloon
The folks over at Lola's should be commended for this one. A Big Lebowski screening complete with White Russians and a drawing contest? The dude would most definitely abide.
TAMMY-AOKE with Mr. Rid at the Double Wide
Celebrate Tammy Wynette's birthday with some karaoke. Because, why not?
