Turn Back Time With Nick Waterhouse.
Recently, a couple in New Mexico returned home to find a naked man that had broken into their house passed out on their bed. Meanwhile, a man in Weatherford found a naked woman who had crawled through his doggy door sitting in his bathtub.
Noticing a trend? If you stay home tonight you will, at some point, find a random naked person passed out somewhere totally inconvenient for you.
Come on, this one's a no-brainer. — Cory Graves
Nick Waterhouse at Trees
After the 2012 release of his solo Time's All Gone LP, plus touring and producing the Allah-Las' debut album, Nick Waterhouse returned to his studio life and released his sophomore album Holly earlier this year. His love for the sounds of '50s and '60s R&B — carried over from Time's All Gone — rings true on this album with an authenticity that erases all doubts of gimmickry. If you're unfamiliar with what that means, you should check out “This Is A Game,” which is pretty representative of what the guy is capable of. For a little more flair, check out the post-rock stylings thrown on “Sleeping Pills”, the music video for which was premiered by GQ a couple of weeks ago. — Chris Escarfullery
311 at South Side Ballroom
Perhaps best known for its triple-platinum self-titled album, 311 has managed to keep its enormous fanbase through constant radio play and extremely long concerts. Even though genres like “rap-rock” aren't exactly en vogue right now, one of 311's more recent albums, Uplifter, still charted on the Billboard Top 200. — Chelsea Upton
Maria Del Pilar at The Prophet Bar
Breaking ground between traditional Latin music and American electronic-based music, Maria Del Pilar is an important and influential voice in the Latin music scene. She first broke ground with her initial music project, Los Abandoned, and she continues to do so as a solo artist. — Chrissi Chetwood
Barefoot at the Belmont (Sold Out)
So. It's the end of this year's KXT Barefoot at the Belmont season. And guess what? The last show is already sold out! Just like every single show this season! Shame, though: We'd totally love to see Jamie Scott on his own instead of as a writer for acts like One Direction or Enrique Inglesias. Hell, local favorite Fox and the Bird is enough of a reason to check it out. But, like I said, it's already sold out. Maybe next year we'll get our act together and buy our tickets in advance. — CE
Chipping Smooth at 201 North Montclair
For one weekend only, local theater group Chipping Smooth will be putting on a grand show of dramatic proportions. There will be original music, spoken word poetry, cinematic projections and classic Shakespearean quotations. It's at a house, though, so don't freak when you pull into the driveway. Trust us: You're there. — Chase Whale
Joe Torry at Arlington Improv
Though Torry may consider himself a baller, he shouldn't be confused with longtime New York Yankees manager Joe Torre. Rather, this guy is a stand-up comedian. And a Cardinals fan, for that matter. — CG
Schwayze at So & So's (Free)
For the past few weeks, we've been reminding you fairly regularly: The people at McKinney Avenue spot So & So's are serious about trying to bring live music to Uptown. Now, say what you will about tonight's MTV reality show-sprung rapper, but the fact that he's a recognizable name and the fact that So & So's isn't charging anyone admission fees to check out this 21-and-up event is pretty rad. — Pete Freedman
