Look Up.

A British man is now enjoying his 15 minutes of fame after getting drunk the other day and legally changing his name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger.

It's apparently a much quicker and simpler process over there.

One thing that doesn't take weeks of muddling through bureaucracy over here stateside is finding something decent to do tonight. It doesn't require hundreds of dollars in court costs and filing fees, either. Just take a gander at the list we've provided below, free of charge.

Take that, England. — Cory Graves

Daley at Majestic Theatre
Like Rick Astley before him, the pipes of British R&B and soul singer Daley probably aren't quite what you'd expect to be coming out of the lanky young ginger kid. Close your eyes, though, and you'll agree that this guy's the real deal. After selling out Trees a couple of times in the past year or so, he moves up to the big leagues tonight. — CG

Magic Men at The Bomb Factory (Sold Out)
Magic Men is a male stripping show inspired by the film Magic Mike, a movie about the dark underworld of male stripping. It turns out a lot of people drastically missed the point of the movie. — Paul Wedding

He'll be joined by Matthew Bridgman and Tony Presley of Real Live Tigers from Austin. The show will be in collaboration with Small Brewpub. — Roberto Aguilar

Jessie James Decker at House of Blues
Decker makes shitty, sterile, boring pop-country. She's more famous for writing a song that almost made it on a Carrie Underwood but didn't, and her reality TV show than her actual music. Because, y'know, it's shitty, sterile, boring pop-country. — PW

Jon Reep at Arlington Improv
Though he won the fifth season of Last Comic Standing, Jon Reep is, perhaps, a comedian best known for asking a question in a Dodge commercial. That thing got a hemi? His comedy covers topics such as life in small towns, the state fair, and NASCAR — y'know, blue collar stuff. — PW

Grease Sing-Along at Alamo Drafthouse (Dallas)
Grease's popularity has come back quite a bit lately, what with the NBC musical coming out a few weeks ago and all. Alamo is going to be showing the sing-along version of it for you to relive those infectiously catchy songs. It's a pretty safe bet to take a date to, there's a lot of girls and guys that love this movie. — PW

The Wiz at Texas Theatre
If you're unfamiliar with The Wiz, it's a cult classic soul adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, with Michael Jackson playing The Scarecrow. As weird sounding as that is, it really does work. The film has had several revivals in theater and recently had a live television special on NBC. — PW

Republican Debate Watch Party at Sundown (Free)
Bottles of wine are priced half-off during this Republican Debate watch party, which might be necessary considering the antics sure to be had. As we all know, Trump is ahead somehow, and this will be a great time for him to start his gloating. There are other candidates, of course, but now without Jeb Bush, the reigns may have been let a little loose. Oh well, should make for some good entertainment. — RA
