Come To Do.
We hate to break it to you, but these hamsters are living a better life than you. Just check out that video and tell me those Singapore dwarf hammies aren't totally living the most chill lifestyle ever.
That said, we'd like to see you step things up. Take it to the next level tonight and show those rodents who is boss. Let us help give you a few suggestions to give you a leg up in that department. And then just count your blessings that rats can't read. — Cory Graves
Chris Brown at Gexa Energy Pavilion
Chris Brown is a lunatic. He's legit crazy, but the little asshole can sing and dance like hell. He'll be on this bill along with Fetty Wap, Omarion, Teyana Taylor and Kid Ink. Check him out at Gexa if you believe talent is better than morals as, let's face it, most of us do. We won't judge (too much). — H. Drew Blackburn
French Montana at The Travis
French Montana is visiting the Triple D for a performance at The Travis. It's sure to be a turn up function destination this week, full of, err bad boys for life. Bad puns aside, DJ Duffey and Dtrain are spinning. Don't miss it. Don't panic. — HDB
Peanut Butter Wolf at Crown and Harp
There's no telling how massive DJ, producer, and Stones Throw Records label head Chris Manak has in his personal collection. The crate digger has a working knowledge of rare musical cuts that would likely rival many music historians. He'll be spinning records at Crown and Harp under his Peanut Butter Wolf moniker tonight along with fellow Stones Throw signees Guilty Simpson, Homeboy Sandman and Denton's Def Rain. — CG
The Weight at Kessler Theater
“The Weight,” was one of the Band's most brilliant and recognizable songs. It only makes sense that The Weight, a band that performs songs by The Band, that features a few original members, would name themselves after said song. So check out The Weight, who will play songs by The Band and have a good time. — HDB
John Paul Keith at Magnolia Motor Lounge
John Paul Keith of Memphis makes throwback rock 'n' roll with a little bit of a southern folkish twang to boot. The Fat Possum signee heads to Fort Worth in support of his latest record, Memphis Circa 3AM, which is jam-packed with good nostalgia and grooves. — HDB
Bobgoblin (Album Release) at Three Links
It's been 14 years since Bobgoblin has released a record. Check the return of the Dallas based post punk band with this release show for its new record Love Lost For Blood Lust. Also on the bill is Tomorrowpeople, a local rock band from the '90s that's also stepping back into the ring. — HDB
Brew-Haha Comedy Tour at Community Beer Co.
Get ready to laugh until Vienna Lager comes out of your nose, because tonight marks the return of the Brew-Haha comedy series for a second straight year. Need a refresher? The series brings nationally recognized comedians to local breweries to perform comedy for the best possible type of audience — a taproom full of drunks. — CG
Christopher Reid at Hyena's (Dallas)
In the early '90s, there was really nobody you'd rather have crash your pad all Cat in the Hat-style and throw a dance-centric rager while your parents were away than Kid 'n Play. Christopher “Kid” Reid's best Funky Charleston days are perhaps behind him — and his hair's a fraction of its former height these days — but far as we can tell from his frequent appearances on 1310-AM The Ticket, he's still maintained his sense of humor. — CG
Stones Throw Meet and Greet at Epocha
Before spinning records over at Crown and Harp, Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf, Homeboy Sandman and Guilty Simpson will be in Deep Ellum for a screening of Stones Throw doc Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton and a meet and greet session. Josey Records will be on hand with a pop-up shop and -topic will perform. A fiver not only gets you access to all this, but free food and booze, and a complimentary ticket to the Crown and Harp show, too. — CG
Josie & the Pussycats at Granada Theater
Rachael Leigh Cook, Tara Reid and Rosario Dawson's 2001 live action take on the '70s Hanna-Barbera cartoon/'60s Archie comic was so '90s. It was also a box office bomb. Now, in 2015, you can get bombed and watch it back on a big screen. — CG
Erik Griffin at Addison Improv
Erik Griffin, better known as Montez Walker from Comedy Central's Workaholics, shows off his stand up skills at Addison Improv tonight. On the show, Griffin plays a grumpy co-worker to the trio of protagonists. But his real-life passion is standup comedy. His first performances in town this weekend kick off tonight. But if you miss those, he'll be back tomorrow and all next weekend. Bonus points if you can name where he pops up in the most recent Arrested Development episodes. — Jessica Petrocchi
Chris Brown After-Party at Gas Monkey Live
Listen, if you want to go to an after-party for a Chris Brown show that supposedly has a performance by Tyga, then that's your prerogative, but, I'm not completely sure you love yourself. The event is hosted by Fetty Wap and Kid Ink. — HDB
