Tonight, We Throw Down.
Thanks to a new charity initiative started by new Star Wars director J.J. Abrams, there's a minuscule chance that you could appear in the next installment of the film franchise.
All you have to do is donate at least $10 to the above charity before July 18. Granted, your chances of winning are pretty slim.
But your chances of having a kickass Thursday tonight? Those are quite high. And all you have to do to guarantee that happens is leave the house and head to one of these tonight.
Morrissey at Majestic Theatre
With Morrissey cancelling a pair of Dallas shows last year, this performance from the world's most insufferable animal rights activist certainly feels like it's a long time coming. And good things, it appears, do come for those who wait: As opposed to those abandoned Southside Ballroom dates, this one will come in a venue half the size of that room, and just ahead of the release of the self-deprecating demigod's new LP — and on the singer's birthday no less! — CG
Red Bull Sound Select at Three Links
It's no secret, we're curating this month's sure-to-be-killer Red Bull Sound Select showcase, which will feature sets from three of the region's most kickass rock bands (read: Somebody's Darling, Quaker City Night Hawks, Goodnight Ned). What you may not know at this point is that we're giving away free T-shirts to the first 100 people through the door, and that the winner of our arm-wrestling tournament will take home this way-too-expensive championship belt. Anyway, you'll want to be there when doors open at 8. That's all I'm saying. And, unless you want to pay $10 cover at the door, you'll want to RSVP your attendance to this first-come, first-served show here, so you can cut down your door costs to $3. — Pete Freedman
AT&T Patio Sessions at Sammons Park (Free)
This week's edition of the free, low-key, outdoor music series features performances from Dallas' southern-tinged indie rockers Bravo, Max! and Denton's R.E.M.-adoring Daniel Markham. — CG
Ice and Ash at Caldwell Arte Exposicion
After relocating to New York for a spell, Dallas native Fred Villanueva created a big batch of giant, abstract paintings upon returning to town. They'll be on display at the still pretty new-ish Design District gallery at 103 Howell Street tonight through June 14. — CG
Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial Country Club
This past Monday, Adam Scott became the 17th golfer to ascend to No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings. Today, he'll make his debut as the sport's top man right here in town as part of this year's Colonial golf tournament. And, no offense to last weekend's Byron Nelson, but this one definitely boasts the stronger field of competitors. Aside from Scott, two more of the world's top-10 golfers (No. 4 Matt Kuchar, and No. 9 Jordan Spieth) will compete. Sp will Jim Furyk, Zach Johson, Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler, just to name a few. — CG
Cadillac Three at Rockin Rodeo
Hard-rocking Nashville country trio Cadillac Three has only released one album, but the band has already turned in a duet with schlocky pop country superstars Florida Georgia Line and appeared in an episode of ABC's Nashville that saw the outfit damn near signing to Rayna James' Highway 65 label. Tonight, the band will play two distinct types of songs out in Denton: The half where they tell you where they're from (“The South,” “I'm Southern,” “Tennessee Mojo”), and the ones where they tell you what to do (“Back It Up,” “Get Your Buzz On,” “Turn It On”). — CG
