One More Time With Feeling at Texas Theatre
Today only, the new Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds feature-length film will screen in more than 650 theaters. Then tomorrow, it’s gone. The stunt is meant to promote the band’s new Skeleton Tree LP, which comes out tomorrow. — CG

Band of Heathens at Kessler Theater
At first glance, you really wouldn’t give this one a second look. On paper and on record, the Band of Heathens appear so boring, if competent, that seeing them live doesn’t seem like a pressing need. Thing is this group is quite good in person. On stage, this group morphs into something more closely resembling a jam band. If you like that sort of thing but are so over Widespread, this one might be worth checking out. Lee Harvey Osmond opens. — Stephen Young

Gensu Dean, Denmark Vessey at RBC
Faded Deejays brings you Denmark Vessey, a rapper, and Dallas’ own Gensu Dean, a producer. Vessey was shouted-out by Rolling Stone as having one of the best albums of last year.

Point is, there’s plenty of critical acclaim backing up this as your option for tonight. — Sidney Johnson

The Get Up Kids at Dada
Twenty years — two decades, a fifth of a century — is a long time. That’s how long The Get Up Kids have been around. With 20 years in the game, the band is celebrating with a tour that brings the famed emo band by Deep Ellum tonight. Don’t miss it, you’ll probably get all emotional or something. — H. Drew Blackburn

Art of Dying at Trees
Since starting over a decade ago, Canadian rock outfit Art of Dying continues to “rise up” despite the exit from founding member Greg Bradley last year. It seems though that isn’t stopping the act, though. Along with this tour stop, the band put out a new album last year. — Evan Henry

Damien Escobar at House of Blues
The Emmy-winning violinist used to be one half of the duo Nuttin’ but Stringz, which shot to stardom after appearing on America’s Got Talent. But that was before he and his brother, the other half of the duo, had a falling out. Now he’s on his own, looking to climb back up that ladder. — CG
