Hit A Highnote.
On Friday, a Tulsa man stabbed his roommate following an argument over whether Android or Apple was the better phone. The following day, a man in Pennsylvania was arrested for assaulting another guy following an argument over whether Michael Jordan or LeBron James was, in fact, the better basketball man.
As it turns out, no, we can't all just get along.
Still, one look at the following list, and “It's another busy night in Dallas!” is a sentiment I think we can all agree upon. — Cory Graves
Odonis Odonis at Three Links
Tuesday nights have long been a notoriously dead one in this town's weekly calendar, but that shouldn't stop you from making the effort to catch Canadian noise rock outfit Odonis Odonis touring in support of last year's Hard Boiled Soft Boiled. That band's record is, as its title indicates, a less-cohesive affair than previous efforts from the band. Employing a mix of heavy dark wave rock and electronic tunes, Odonis Odonis has moved away from the surf rock and punk undertones that were a hallmark of its earlier work; Hard Boiled Soft Boiled is meaner than that — more scattered, too, but in a good way. Still, the band's live offering should remain just as aggressive as ever. Ice Balloons and Blackstone Rangers open. —Jeremy Hughes
Eternal Summers at Dada
Listen up fans of Beach Fossils and Cloud Nothings: Virginia indie outfit Eternal Summers is probably a band you won't want to miss perform when it performs at Dada tonight. Like many other similarly-named outfits, Eternal Summers makes a brand of upbeat, lo-fi rock with a surfy feel. Locals Pearl Earl and Cleanup open. — Lauren Rushing
Swan Lake at Winspear Opera House
In the words of famous ballerina Nina Sayers, Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake is “about a girl who gets turned into a swan and she needs love to break the spell, but her prince falls for the wrong girl so she kills herself.” The esteemed Saint Petersburg State Russian Ballet performs the ballet for two nights in Dallas. — CG
Have a Heart Fundraiser at Craft and Growler
Back in January, Have a Heart threw its first benefit show in order to raise funds for a Dallasite in need. Now, the upstart organization is looking for its next beneficiary. Not long ago, organizer Jeffrey Brown told us the following: “We are going to keep doing benefits under the Have a Heart brand. The beneficiary is going to change each time. It will always be a local DFW person or family that truly needs help. There are so many great causes and charities out there, but rarely are the beneficiaries given a huge chunk of cash that can actually put a sizable dent in their financial needs. As Have a Heart grows, so will the amounts raised to local families. I'd really like to make it big enough — with sponsors and the like — so we can give large checks to multiple families in need.” Tonight, they'll raffle off prizes in an attempt to raise the funds necessary to throw their next big charity event, while Bad Mountain performs. — CG
