Join Two Door Cinema Club.
This weather's been crazy lately. And it's kind of a pain in the ass.
What the hell are you supposed to wear in this shit? A raincoat? A tank top? A wool jacket?
What is going on here? I mean, really.
All we know is that Thursday has plenty of activities on its docket. And that should help sooth our collective pain some.
Bon Jovi at the American Airlines Center
Bon Jovi's all about that arena rock life.
Two Door Cinema Club at Palladium Ballroom
If you're one of the few who hasn't heard Two Door Cinema Club before, know this: This dance-punk band's music seems like it was pretty much tailor-made for every happy scene in all of your favorite indie comedies.
Power Trip at Club Dada
Power Trip plays as loud and as fast as they can. This isn't necessarily a great thing for your ear drums. But thatâ€™s totally the point, isn't it?
Vinyl Thoughts Nation Blind Box Release at ATAMA
ATAMA will be releasing their first Vinyl Thoughts Nation Blind Box Series tonight. The release is called “Made in Texas,” and the box comes with a limited edition set of Kidrobot Dunnys. Of course, the artists who made these Dunnys are all Texas artists — Anuja Cannon, Drue Davis and Ghetto Axe, just to name a few. Sure, your significant other might think these vinyl items are toys. But you go ahead and tell 'em: This is art!
Dick Dale at Trees
We've got some vintage surf rock from one of that genre's true pioneers right here. Tarantino's use of “Miserlou” to kick off Pulp Fiction remains the most badass way we've ever seen a movie start. Also: Remember when the Black Eyed Peas sampled that song, too? No? OK, good. It's probably best that you don't let that crap enter your consciousness.
Justin Terveen at Kettle Art
You really should go see Dallas photographer Justin Terveen exhibit, “The Urban Fabric,” before it closes at Kettle Art on Saturday. Dude's probably the best skyline photographer in town. He makes us look pretty, y'all.
Angry Samoans at Three Links
Punk pioneers in Deep Ellum's newest venue. Come watch as the place gets trashed.
