All Gone Live.
If you're NBA superstar Steph Curry, it can be hard to leave the house without getting swamped by adoring fans and members of the leering press. And those times you do brave the outside world to do things like going to the mall, you have to do silly things like wear a zebra mask as a disguise. Unfortunately even that doesn't work.
Good thing, then, that you are not Steph Curry. You should have little trouble getting out and enjoying everything the city has to offer this evening without having to wear any silly getup.
Subhumans at Three Links
Several prime ministers have come and gone since UK anarcho-punk outfit the Subhumans ended its original run in 1985, including one that fucked a pig. But, by all accounts, the band remains as vitriolic than ever. In a review of the band's live album for Fat Wreck, AllMusic's Charles Spano writes “The Subhumans prove that some two decades on, they could still play their old favorites with just as much intensity, political venom, and grit — and play them better, even.” Potato Pirates and Blood Letters open.
Colony House at Dada
Fun fact: Two-thirds of Franklin, Tennessee rock trio Colony House are the progeny of noted Christian musician Steven Curtis Chapman. The band sites everyone from Kings of Leon to Tom Waits and Switchfoot as influences on its sound. Oof. Piano-driven Austin indie rockers The Rocketboys open.
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 a 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.”
The Earth Dies Screaming, Coma Regalia, Whimper at Macaroni Island
The penultimate show for Denton house venue Macaroni Island promises to be a noisy one, with Denton and Indiana hardcore acts TEDS and Coma Regalia each performing. But the show also marks a new beginning, namely for Whimper, a new band featuring members of Two Knights and New Science Projects that plays its first-ever show here. So show up early for that. And bring $5 for the touring band. And leave your jerk friends at home.
