Make Monday Great Again.
There's not much bigger name in the ol' pop culture zeitgeist at the moment that one Mr. Donald J. Trump. The Trumpster is running for this nation's highest office, which is pretty effing astounding considering all the batshit things that've come out of his mouth since formally announcing his run.
Actually it's pretty hard to tell the difference between things the complete joke of a candidate has said on record with quotes delivered by the equally batshit Lucille Bluth, AKA Arrested Development's drunken, self-centered mess of a matriarch. To further drive this point home, some wise BuzzFeed-er created a who said it quiz based around the two. Somehow, it's even harder than you're probably imagining.
Fortunately, his political rally tonight at the AAC isn't the only game in town. Here's what else you've got to look forward to on this lovely Monday. — Cory Graves
The Get Up Kids at Gas Monkey Live
Twenty years — two decades, a fifth of a century — is a long time. That's how long The Get Up Kids has been around. With 20 years in the game, the band is celebrating with a tour. The famed emo band stops by Gas Monkey tonight with The Hotelier, Josh Berwanger Band and The Single Issues as openers. Don't miss it, you'll probably get all emotional or something. — H.

N6420 Tournament at the House of Sports Bar & Grill
Weed and videogames just kind of go together. It's a fact unabashedly acknowledged by DFW Norml, which is holding an N64 tournament to fund-raise for a marijuana march. The games played include Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 64 and Goldeneye. All this event is missing ing some Doritos or Taco Bell. — HDB
