Looking for some cool new people to hang out with tonight?

We have it on good authority there'll be an abundance of cool folks at these spots tonight. — Cory Graves
WordSpace Season KickOff Party at wild Detectives
Like words? This is the event for you. The whole WordSpace crew will be there to celebrate and discuss huge things for their 2014-15 season. Also going to be there is free appetizers and a cash bar. Word. — Chase Whale
Washed Out at Granada Theater
More often than not Washed Out is lumped into the chillwave music, and we suppose that's pretty fair. But the phrase “washed out” really is the best way to describe the dreamy blend of pop production and mildly hip-hop influenced beats producer Ernest Greene's Washed Out records are filled with. It's certainly more concise than if Greene had decided to call the project Taking Downers And Laying Out At The Beach, anyway. Or, That Guy That Wrote The Portlandia Theme for that matter. Small Black opens. — CG
Do It For Durrett at Billy Bob's
Daphne Willis is a Chicago-based Folk&B (a genre we, admittedly, just made up to describe her folkly R&B hybrid sound) artist with Texas roots that’s been making quite the name for herself of late. To wit: She's not just the favorite musician of Texas Rangers radio broadcaster/music aficionado Erid Nadel, but she's opening tonight's concert/fundraiser benefiting the family of recently deceased ESPN writer Richard Durrett that'll also see performances from Old 97's frontman Rhett Miller and Burleson's Casey Donahew Band. You can rub elbows with Nadel and even win an inning in the booth with Hall of Famer at that one. In any case, it's all for a good cause. — CG
Retro Futura at Verizon Theatre
The so-called Second British Invasion that took place in the early '80s wasn't nearly as successful as the first. Let's just say acts like The Beatles, Stones, Kinks and The Who could have been knocked off the charts by a bunch of shitty U.S. hair metal bands. Still, remnants of some of these second wave bands are still around, and five will share this bill. Tonight you'll get one of the Thomspon Twins, folky Howard Jones, the old lead singer of Ultravox, China Cris and Katrina without any of The Waves. — CG
BBQ at The Where House
Mark Sultan is nothing if not prolific. In the last 15 years, he's released dozens of records as part of such Canadian garage rock outfits as Powesquat, the Spaceshits, Les Sexareenos, Mind Controls and the Ding Dongs, as well as through his solo project BBQ, his duo The King Khan and BBQ Show, and the gospel-tinged garage supergroup Almighty Defenders (with Khan and The Black Lips). Plus, there's the records he's released under his given name. But though he's received some notoriety along the way — most commonly when associated with King Khan, who he'll perform with in Dallas this coming weekend — Sultan isn't necessarily what one would consider a household name by any stretch.For instance, even self-proclaimed fans of his work often mistakenly refer to his one-man band as BBQ Show instead of simply BBQ. — CG
Monday Night Football Watch Party at Henderson Tap House
Are you ready for some football? We hope so, because it's here to take over every bar you frequent. Every Monday, members of the Cowboys will be at Henderson Tap House. Tonight, you can get krunk with Tyron Smith and George Selvie. — CW
