If You Feel Like Dancing, It'll Do.
With the opening of the It'll Do Club tonight, I'd say that it's a good evening for dancing. While the name “It'll Do” may seem like an invitation for a bunch of mildly funny jokes (all of which I have made to myself), try to keep it cool on the dancefloor, OK? Band of Heathens will also be playing at the Granada. Plus, Soviet, Doom Ghost and Hormones will be at Bryan Street, and the Toadies are playing the Palladium. Oh, and then there are those festivals we mentioned earlier in the week.
The Toadies at Palladium Ballroom
For most people in Dallas, this won't be an introduction to the Toadies. Instead, it'll be more like a family reunion, since the band has been a staple in Dallas for quite a while. It might be months before you get a chance to see them again.
It'll Do Club Opening
Fans of dancing and related activities (drinking, benign statements of contentment) should rejoice as a new spot for hoofin' it opens (or, in this case, reopens) its doors tonight.
Ice Cream Pajama Party at Henry's
I don't leave the house in my onesie for just anything, but a free quart of ice cream might just be the thing to get me to do it. (Although I might also do it for a sandwich, a box of thumbtacks or a dare.) Leave your lactose intolerant friends at home.
Band of Heathens at Granada Theater
Formerly known as “Band of Really Great Guys” until a wayward band member kicked a puppy, now the Austin group is forever known as Band of Heathens. Ne'er do wells and sinners should unite in the Americana and folk stylings of this Texas band.
Soviet, Doom Ghost, and Hormones at Bryan Street Tavern
Now's a good time to check out the new three-member lineup of Soviet. Also on the bill are fellow locals Doom Ghost and Hormones.
East Dallas Gallery Day
Gallery day seems like it's turning out to be quite the event, stocked with food trucks, free drinks and of course, enough art to fill your heart's content. It sets up on Exposition Avenue with works by artists at Centraltrak (again, not us), The Public Trust, Kettle Art, Barry Whistler Gallery and more.
