Put A Sing On It.
Contemplating your plans for the immediate future? Almost always, we recommend going out and having some fun while you still can.
Why? Because, with the news that Russia has taken control of the Ukraine's combat dolphins, we're only becoming more and more certain that our long-term futures are going to be rather hellish. I mean, If we know Putin, he's probably already started devising a system to add frickin' laser beams to their heads.
Not good, people.
So pack as much living as you can these next few weeks. The end is pretty much right around the corner.
Uncle Kracker at Gas Monkey Bar and Grill
Has anyone transitioned from rap-rock to country more gracefully than Uncle Kracker? The complete remaking of his image over the years, arguably, surpasses the transition of his onetime bandmate Kid Rock, who himself has gone from hip-hop DJ to rap-rocker to just-plain-rocker to country-friendly southern-rocker. 'Murica! Anyway, Drake White and The Big Fire open this one. — Cory Graves
The Districts at Dada
Two biggest examples of bands of high schoolers that completely immersed themselves in their dads' record collections and subsequently mastered genres that died out long before they were born? Ireland's The Strypes, whose sped-up take on the Stones has earned them tremendous global buzz of late, and Pennsylvania's The Districts, whose modernized take on Dylan's electric years is deceptively sincere. The latter headlines this bill, which also features Denton's Bashe and Dallas' Valise. — CG
Beyonce Sing-a-Long Party at Alamo Drafthouse
Long live Beyonce, hip-hop's reigning Queen B, who'll be the sole focus of this tribute party. Gather with fellow Sasha Fierce devotees and sing along to Yonce's hits while music videos dating all the way back to her Destiny's Child days play on the big screen. We gotta say, it's a concept we're pretty drunk in love with. — PP
Spring What to Wear Fashion Show Mockingbird Station
Strut your way over to Mockingbird Station for yet more tips on what to wear this spring. The Spring What to Wear Fashion Show aims to provide that certain je ne sais quoi that only a French-themed show can provide — one that will be bolstered by the fact that attendees at this one can also enter for a chance to win a trip of a lifetime to the City of Lights itself. Gorgeous models will be in full supply, as will free drinks and free food. Rounding out this event will be music provided by DJ Blake Ward and a performance by The O's. — Porschia Paxton
