Deserve a Break Today.

Recently a bear, lion and tiger in at an animal sanctuary in Georgia have become inseparable BFFs. But — get this — when the jackwagon from Inside Edition that went down to write about the adorable trio, she not only used a headline that didn't put them in the order “Lion, Tiger and Bear,” but she failed to make any reference to the phrase, “Oh my.”

Sounds like a real missed opportunity if you ask us.

Speaking of missed opportunities, those are something you can avoid tonight, so long as you check the following list of goings on before heading out. Oh my, indeed. — Cory Graves

Mac Sabbath at Trees
Why does everybody constantly hate on shitty pizza-themed Velvet Underground “cover” band The Pizza Underground, when equally disastrous, McDonald's-themed Black Sabbath “cover” band Mac Sabbath get a free pass? Better costuming, I guess. — CG

Bar Politics: DISD Edition at The Wild Detectives
Bar Politics — aka Dallas' version of The Daily Show — is manned by Josh Kumler, who seeks these opportunities to drink and discuss local politics. Not a bad idea as long as everyone plays nice. This month's Bar Politics is tackling the controversial subject of the Dallas Independent School District with all its fun nuances. DISD school board trustee Miguel Solis will be on hand to help shed light on the subject. This will be the family-friendly event, so bring your family to join in the discussion. — Roberto Aguilar

Hip-Hop Karaoke at Crown and Harp
The word about Hip-Hop Karaoke is that it's live as hive of bananas and packed like a can of mackerels — or something like that. The party is put on by Too Fresh Productions who really has a hold on the DIY beats and rhymes scene in the DFW. You know you know all the words to “O.P.P” just get up there and prove your skills. — RA

Artisan Craft Beer and Cheese Pairing at Community Beer Co. (Sold Out)
I know it sounds crazy, but beer and cheese actually have a lot in common. I mean, they are both fermented. Anyway, this event will feature four of Community's brews, each paired with a complimentary and a contrasting cheese, and experts from both fields helping guide you through the differences. Anyway, by our math, that's four beers and eight cheeses for only $32. Tickets are limited, and be purchased here. — Lauren Rushing

Experience Hendrix at Verizon Theatre
This is a monster show. All fans of Jimi Hendrix and the guitar really need to attend. The all-star lineup is packed with amazing guitarists playing Hendrix tunes all night long. Headlining the event is Billy Cox and Buddy Guy. That alone should have you clicking for tickets. But, wait, there are so many more: Zakk Wylde, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang, Dweezil Zappa, Doyle Bramhall II, Eric Johnson and Chris Layton. Holy smackerel, that's going to rock. Plus, there are guests who haven't been announced yet. Who knows, maybe Hologram Hendrix will make an appearance. — RA

Peggy Guggenheim at Texas Theatre
Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict is a new documentary covering the life of an art collector. She did much more than collect art. She expressed herself through her collection, and combined that with a liberating sex life that, in her day, got her some flack. Really, she paved the way for many women who were tired of being pegged into the role of prudence created by the men who enjoyed art and sex the way she did. The art is fantastic, — that's a given — but it's Peggy Guggenheim's story that makes the film. — RA

Rob Crow's Gloomy Place at Three Links
Pinback's Rob Crow has gotten a lot of flack for quitting music. He had a point about the crappy climate of music and he did take a break, but he's back at again with his solo project Rob Crow's Gloomy Place. The new sound is similar to the Pinback days, because how can you separate that iconic voice from it? But, the instrumentation is a bit more open and jazzy, which is refreshing. — RA

Super Bob at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill (Free)
Super Bob is so freaking hot. Like, so many tattoos and dreadlocks it's beyond titillating. The band's music is totally in your face and, judging by it's music videos, its members get, like, a lot of women. So, it might be in the people's best interest to go to this show just to be surrounded by all the hotness. Opening the show are Mother Mammoth, From Within and Prostinaut. Ooowee! — RA

Ami Vitale at Perot Museum
Ami Vitale is a National Geographic photographer who has spent her career covering war zones, nature and humanity in general all around the world. From photography to documentary, she's seen and done incredible things across the world and will be sharing some of her experiences here tonight. — Paul Wedding

Toya Nash Video Premiere at quesaMX
Toya Nash is a multi-talented performer. She's your typical triple threat of singer, dancer and actor. She's on the cusp of releasing her new music video “Paradise,” which is pretty sultry just by the looks of the 10-second teaser. DJ Frances Jaye will be behind the turntables spinning tunes for the party, and there will be drink and food specials. —RA
