Don't Get Lost on Your Way to Maps & Atlases Tonight
It seems like tonight is a fantastic night for concerts. So if you haven't been to one in a while, now's your perfect chance for musical redemption. Two Door Cinema Club will be playing their highly anticipated (and sold out) show at House of Blues. You can also catch Maps & Atlases and The Big Sleep at Sons of Hermann Hall. Besides that, Mark Sultan (or, if you prefer, BBQ) will be at City Tavern. For those who are not musically inclined, see the “most dangerous play in the world,” Flesh World, which may or may not also be the fleshiest play in the world.
Rock and Roll Tacos Grand Opening at La Grange
To celebrate the new partnership of Rock and Roll Tacos and La Grange, the venue is kicking things off with adult snowcones (which I assume are either really big snowcones or snowcones with “le booze”), a tiki bar and live music.
Mark Sultan at City Tavern
He might be better known as the “not always getting arrested” half of King Khan and BBQ Show, but Mark Sultan's solo work is nothing to sneeze at. When he's not touring South America and getting into internet fights with Davila 666, Sultan can be counted on for his consistently good performances.
Flesh World at The 500
Hailed as “the most dangerous play in the world,” Flesh World promises to immerse the audience in the world of a West Dallas welding shop. Only 30 audience members at a time can attend this multifaceted performance, so the experience is likely to be intimately mesmerizing.
Two Door Cinema Club at House of Blues
While they haven't quite made the crossover here, Irish band Two Door Cinema Club's only album, 2010's Tourist History, is certified gold in the UK. It shouldn't be too long before the U.S. catches on, though, because if Tourist History is any indication, Two Door Cinema Club has a promising future.
Maps & Atlases at Sons of Hermann Hall
Bring your best navigation equipment to the Maps & Atlases show so you can fit right in. These Chicago indie rockers have been in this game since 2004, so it's likely that the extensive touring has toned down their map usage a bit. Get to the show early; openers The Big Sleep are a can't-miss live act.
