Get Off.

Lest you think meteorologists have the easiest job on the planet, TBS has decided to film the most boring sounding reality program ever, throwing real live nobodies into local news weather centers to see if they've got what it takes to accurately predict the weather.


Much easier predict is whether or not you're going to have a kickass evening. Spoiler alert: you will, so long as you peruse the following list beforehand. — Cory Graves

METZ at Trees
With two full lengths out on Sub Pop Records, you'd have thought Toronto noise-rock outfit METZ would have already made a headlining venture this far south, but you'd be wrong. On this given night with New York punk quartet, Big Ups, it makes its debut at this one, too, and Sealion, fresh off a month-long stint on the road, opens.. — Evan Henry

Cody Canada & the Departed at Panther Island Pavilion
For better or worse, alt-country figurehead Cody Canada pretty much single-handedly helped kick off the red dirt country scene. Now, backed by the harder-rocking Departed, he's pretty much picked right back up where his previous outfit, Cross Canadian Ragweed, left off. Tonight, he plays for an audience bravely inner tubing on a river in which dead bodies, alligators and an E. coli outbreak have all recently been found. Good times! — CG

Arden Myrin at Hyena's (Dallas)
Frequent guest on Comedy Central's @midnight and Chelsea Lately, Arden Myrin, is taking the stage at Hyena's Dallas tonight. You may have also seen her appear in Orange is the New Black or Reno 911. Myrin is best described as simply a silly girl with some good jokes to match. Check her out for free tonight. — Diamond Victoria

Summer Fest at Gas Monkey Live
Travis Scott and Chief Keef are purveyors of the turn up. So, if you're one to get live or lit or whatever, Gas Monkey Live is the place to be. Other artists- – Fredo Santana, Sir Michael Rocks, Robb Banks, Shorty K, and G.U.N. — perform as well making for an energized, exciting show. — Lauren Kuehmeier

Here Come the Mummies at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill
The identities of the members of Here Come the Mummies are left “under wraps.” Get it, because, they're…mummies. This funk and blues band from Nashville adds in some mystery to its idendity. You don't really know who is playing in the band. The only thing that you'll know for sure is that some of the best musicians from Nashville and prospectively from the bordering southern states came together to play some damn good music. — H. Drew Blackburn

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck at Texas Theatre
Named after an old mix tape compiled by Cobain, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is one of the few truly authorized and authentic documentaries on Nirvana front-man Kurt Cobain. Montage is a recollection Cobain's family experiences and the difficulties of being the spotlight and so-called voice of a generation. Much of the footage though is behind-the-scenes personal video, along with interviews from those closest to Cobain. It is said to paint a picture previously unseen of someone so influential. It's also been said to be a load of crap, so maybe take it with a grain of salt. — EH

Sylvain Sylvain at Three Links
Former New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain has been on the music scene for awhile. He's not only known for the Dolls, though. Before joining up with that outfit, he was in the band Actress alongside two other Dolls members, The Criminal$ and, in the '90s, began recording some solo stuff. Check him tonight at Three Links. The Barry Kooda Combo opens. — DV

The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead? at Texas Theatre
Wes Orshoski of Lemmy fame made a film, The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead?, which follows the lives of The Damned, the first punk band to release a vinyl record from the U.K. Orshoski shot the film over three years while the band celebrated its 35th year on the scene. Damned has got some other familiar faces in it too like Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders and Mick Jones of The Clash. It also features members of Pink Floyd, Black Flag, Guns N' Roses, the Sex Pistols, Blondie and Buzzcocks. — DV

An Evening with Eric Johnson at Kessler Theater
Grammy-winning blues wizard Eric Johnson will take turns tonight, tastefully wanking away on the piano and the guitar. All night. As in there's no openers here. — CG

Camp Lo at Dada
Real heads know. Camp Lo is one of the most talented rap groups of the '90s. Not to forget, the outfit's debut record, Uptown Saturday Night, is a classic to anyone who doesn't just fetishize the golden era of the '90s, but truly relishes it. Let it sparkle with Camp Lo tonight. — HDB

Saliva at Rockin' Rodeo
Why anyone would invest any sum of money to see band of this nature is beyond us. But, perhaps it's not our scene. If your desire strikes you enough, go see '90s metal outfit Saliva disgust North Texas once again in a headlining effort at the very fitting Rockin' Rodeo in Denton. To follow, there is free after-party within the club that may in fact help you forget how much money you just meaninglessly spent. — EH

Best in Show at Alamo Drafthouse
From the genius mind of Christopher Guest comes Best In Show. The movie is about what would seem like one of the worst ideas for a comedy, a dog show. However, with Guest and his family tree of comedians (Fred Willard, Catherine O'Hara, Michael McKeen, Eugene Levy), it's a cult classic that taps into the absurdity of the mundane and the odd that you might find at a competition about pets. — HDB

Silent Disco at DEC on Dragon
Like most everybody no doubt does, we like to play a fun game when we go to silent discos. We take our headphones off, do a quick scan of the room and try to guess which people are dancing to the same music. To those who have never been, everybody who comes gets a pair of headphones with which they can switch between three separate live DJs. — CG

Straight Outta Compton at Alamo Drafthouse
Face it, rap movies are more or less terrible. However, there's always a glitch in the system like CB4 or 8 Mile. This brings us to the fact that reviews for Straight Outta Compton, the tale of the rise and the fall of N. W.A., look quite promising. Check out the premiere at the Alamo. Bring attitude, however, no Vasoline is allowed. — HDB

Jameson, Dude! at Dude, Sweet Chocolate
Booze and chocolate. Honestly, what's better? Everyone's got their favorite poison, so if yours is whiskey then head to Dude, Sweet Chocolate for some whiskey tastings specifically paired with different chocolates. I mean, do we really need to convince you? — DV
