Stay Hungry.

Recently, luxury car manufacturer Bentley released mockups of a new concept that show they plan on making cars in the future that'll feature holographic butlers sitting in the backseat. It'll be just like Siri, but even creepier, they implied.

Who knows how much all that will cost, but we're guessing it won't be cheap. And they haven't really said what all VR butler will be able to do. Like, will it be able to tell you where all the cool shit is happening tonight?

Doubt it. For that, you'll have to stick with your slightly less creepy, much cheaper digital buddies. We got ya. — Cory Graves

The legendary new wave band Duran Duran is on a worldwide tour promoting its 14th studio album, Paper Gods. Lucky for you, the guys are kind enough to stop by and party in Dallas.

SusCon: Analyzing the Attraction at Viva's (Free)
Dallas SusCon is a gathering of people that really love suspension. Not like suspense, they like being drug up into the air on fucking hooks dug into their body. Why? Well, that's what they're going to try to explain at this lecture. Or, more accurately, they're going to provide those already interested in hooking with easy ways to explain to their friends that wonder what the appeal could possibly be. Unlike some of the other SusCon events, this one is free and open to the public. — Paul Wedding

Holy Holy at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill
Holy Holy is the supergroup tasked with performing David Bowie's The Man Who Sold The World (1970).

After Bowie's passing, the desire became even more pressing. Visconti and Woodmansey have recruited guitarist James Stevenson, guitarist Paul Cuddeford, vocalist Glenn Gregory, keyboardist Berenice Scott, sax player Terry Edwards and backup vocalist Jessica Morgan. Woodmansey will take drums and Visconti the bass. — RA

You're Next at Alamo Drafthouse (Dallas)
There's home invasion movies that make light of a scary situation like The Ref or Home Alone, and then there's ones that will make you double-check your doors are locked tight. You're Next is one of those films. The 2011 thriller takes place in a secluded home where an unsuspecting family has gotten together to rest and relax. Until, of course, they are bombarded by psychopaths in animal masks. Who will survive and who's next to die? — RA

The Summer Set at The Prophet Bar
Have you ever been to Chuck E Cheese? You know the animatronic band that eerily moves and sings grating pop songs that seem like they have come straight from the underworld? This show is terribly close to the fleshy version of that. The show includes performances from The Summer Set, Callmekarizma, Royal Teeth and Handsome Ghost. — RA

Skip Hollandsworth: The Hunt for America's First Serial Killer at Horchow Auditorium
Skip Hollandsworth is a Texas journalist and writer known for writing some of the best true crime stories in America, as well as doing celebrity profiles and even helped write the screenplay of Bernie. Now, he's published his first book, The Midnight Assassin: Panic, Scandal, and the Hunt for America's First Serial Killer. The book follows a killer in late 19th-century Austin who goes around killing women, which I can only imagine isn't too far off from modern day Austin. — PW
