Keep Your Head Up.
When two-year-old black lab Eclipse wants to go to the dog park, she doesn't wait around for her owner to take her.
If there's a lesson to be earned here, it's that sometimes you've just got to grab life by the tail and just see where the night takes you. There's no excuse, really. I mean, a dog can do it, and it doesn't even have the advantage of being able to peruse the following list. — Cory Graves
Crate Dating at Off the Record (Free)
Find your next bf/gf at this unique singles event, which combines crate digging with some good ol' fashioned music snobbery while you discuss your selections with your potential fling. It beats swiping away on Tinder, for one, not to mention should provide more suitable matches, seeing as how you'll already have two things in common — your love of vinyl and hanging out in bars on weeknights. — CG
Ben Howard at House of Blues
After three long years, English folkie Ben Howard has been long due for a nationwide tour. His current tour, I Forget Where We Were, is focused on his recent album released in October 2014. If you love heartfelt music in the style of folk, you can't miss this one. —Lauren Rushing
The Marvel Experience at The Cotton Bowl
Part ride, part multiplayer videogame, part augmented reality, the Marvel Experience is, well, just that: an experience. Set in a series of seven huge domes in Fair Park, you won't just be watching your favorite comic book characters come to life, you'll be asked to fight, literally right alongside them. The attraction will be in town through February 1. — CG
Ray Wylie Hubbard at The Live Oak (Sold Out)
Oklahoma country artist/legend (and one-time Oak Cliff resident) Ray Wylie Hubbard is going to be at Dan's tonight, doing what he does best and making everyone swoon to his country guitar strums, bluesy vocals, and maybe even a song or two about his old hometown. — Trace McCaslin
Song Swap at AllGood Café
Billy Sandwiches you may know as the long-haired drummer for bratty rock band, Party Static, and/or as the bassist/guitarist/rotating lead vocalists of the classic country-leaning outfit The Hazardous Dukes. Tonight he'll be the meat in an acoustic song swap with Party Static bandmate Laura Harrell and Hazardous Dukes bandmate Hank Van Hawkins. It's a pay-what-you-can affair, so be sure to drop a few bucks in the kitty if you head to this one. — CG
