Get Egg-cited For Odonis Odonis.
Yesterday, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings announced that his company would be raising subscription rates a couple bucks at some point in the near future.
Sure, $2 might not sound like much, but where does it end? When does staying in start to become more expensive than hitting the town on a nightly basis?
Thankfully, you've got options in that regard. Here are tonight's.
Odonis Odonis at Dada
Last week, this Toronto-based DIY outfit released its sophomore effort, Hard Boiled Soft Boiled, which, unlike 2011's Hollandaze, doesn't so much weave together its noise rock and shoegaze influences as it does completely compartmentalize them into separate halves of the album. This time, around the brash noise rock cuts are relegated to the disc's front half, while the back half devolves into softer, dreamy offerings. It's a nice mix. Locals Hex Cult, Bashe and Tall open. — Cory Graves
Trails & Ales at the Trinity Skyline Trail
On June 15, the new Sylvan and Continental Avenue Bridges, the West Dallas Gateway, and the 4.5-mile long Trinity Skyline Trail will each open. This evening, though, and way ahead of that date, members of the Trinity Trust Rat Pack will lead you on a guided exploration through the Trinity River Corridor of the city's newest trail. Interested parties should meet underneath the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge at 6 p.m. Beer, wine and snacks will follow. — CG
Fading Gigolo at Angelika Film Center
Kicking off the 44th annual USA Film Festival will be a 7 p.m. screening of the John Turturro-written and -directed all-star comedy Fading Gigolo. Following the screening, Dallasite andGroundhog Day actor Stephen Tobolowsky will host a talk with Turturro. The festival runs through the 27th. — CG
Eric Hutchinson at the House of Blues
Just as Hutchinson was set to make his major label debut via the Madonna-owned, Warner Bros.-distributed Maverick Records, a lawsuit with the label's parent company effectively shut Maverick down for good and ended Hutchinson's deal. Fortunately for the Jason Mraz-esque popsmith, his next record received a mention on Perez Hilton's site, which almost singlehandedly helped it become one of the top 10 downloads on iTunes that week. Since then, he's released three more LPs, including this month's Pure Fiction, each of which show that his knack for crafting radio-ready pop tunes is fully intact. — CG
Sam Anderson & The Tuesdee Band at Magnolia Motor Lounge
Be it a song swap, another night jamming with one of his many pals in the Fort Worth music scene or a full-on performance with his band Quaker City Night Hawks, Sam Anderson always seems to turn things up a notch when he's performing at this Fort Worth spot. And no matter how many times he seems to do so, he always manages to pack the house. While the Night Hawks have called the Lounge their homebase, we're beginning to wonder if it's not something even more to Anderson. We honestly wouldn't be surprised if he slept on a cot in the kitchen when the place closed. Because, above all, he never looks more at home than when he's playing on the Magnolia Motor Lounge stage. — CG
