May The Schwartz Be With You.
Earlier this week, we not only marked the 10-year anniversary of the Friends finale, but also the release of the 50th installment of Now That's What I Call Music.
If neither of these marks makes you feel old, a warning: Sitting at home and sulking about your misspent youth surely will. So, instead, we suggest heading out on the town. Because nothing makes you feel more alive than staying up way past your bedtime.
Wolf Gang at Dada
Tonight's all-ages performance from the British symphonic indie-rock/electro-pop hybrid will be one of the band's most intimate Dallas performances to date. Really: Dada holds at least a couple hundred fewer people than the band faced when itperformed at Trees back in 2012 — and much less than when it opened for Coldplay at American Airlines Center that same year. — Cory Graves
AT&T Patio Sessions at Sammons Park (Free)
This week's edition of the free, low-key, outdoor music series features solo performances from Slobberbone frontman Brent Best and Telegraph Canyon mastermind Chris Johnson. — CG
Spaceballs at Strauss Square (Free)
Stick around following this evening's free patio sessions for yet another free, family-friendly offering at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. When the sun sets, they'll screen Mel Brooks' 1987 Star Wars-spoofing classic Spaceballs in Strauss Square. Unlike the Patio Sessions portion of the evening, they will let you bring in your own food and alcohol to this one. — CG
Tiny Moving Parts, Frameworks and Gates at Three Links
As the group's gotten older, the Minnesota-based Tiny Moving Parts, which formed when its members were teenagers, has lost several members. By the time the band released its debut full-length last year, attrition had pared down the outfit to a three-piece, stripping away all but the most essential components that make up the band's melodic post-hardcore sound. Florida melodic hardcore rock out Frameworks, New Jersey ambient rock group Gates and Denton math rock duo Two Knights open. — CG
Barefoot at the Belmont (Sold Out)
As you might have guessed, this intimate poolside show with singer-songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov and electro-folk outfit Grizfolk has long been sold out. What can we say? It happens every single week with these things. That said, if you want to attend at least one of these Belmont-hosted affairs this spring, we'd suggest checking the link above for a list of upcoming performances, and noting when tickets go on sale. — CG
Jiggy Crunk Sing-a-Long at Alamo Drafthouse
According to leading hip-hop
nerd historian Matthew Daniels — who once spent countless hours meticulously charting and graphing various aspects of Outkast's career — there's enough scientific evidence to suggest that the Atlanta-based duo was singlehandedly responsible for popularizing the term “crunk” through copious use throughout 1994's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and 1996's ATLiens. And, as implied by the name of this event, they'll be showing nothing but your favorite '90s hip-hop videos on the big screen at this rap-a-long dance party. — CG
The Eastern Legends at Dallas City Performance Hall
East meets West at this performance, which also closes out the Crow Collection's 31 Days of Asia programming. To that end, The Eastern Legends are a Taiwanese outfit that uses traditional Chinese instruments to create Western-sounding rock and electronica tracks, each paired with intricately choreographed dance displays. — CG
