Drown All Your Witches.
At one time or another we've all gone out and had too much to drink. And the results aren't always pretty, either.
From peeing on oneself, hitting on someone you just really shouldn't have or even punching one's best friend in the face, we've all experienced a few regrettable moments under the influence of alcohol.
While exploring her own alcohol daze, a 32-year-old Pittsburgh woman hopped into a cop car — with two cops in the back — so she could drive it to her car and make the trip home a little faster. What she got was a trip to jail.
Way to make mom and dad proud.
Let's all learn from her mistake and call a cab should driving home after one of tonight's events not be in the cards. — Chase Whale
ANTEMASQUE at Trees
Following the dissolution of post hardcore outfit At the Drive-In in 2001, the band's frontman, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, and guitarist, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, went on to form the notably proggier offshoot The Mars Volta. After putting out six well-received albums, though, the band went through a rather nasty public split when Rodriguez-Lopez opted to forgo a tour in support of the band's Noctourniquet album in lieu of starting his Bosnian Rainbows side project with Le Butcherettes vocalist Teri Gender Bender and Bixler-Zavala responded with an official statement that read: “Am I supposed to do be some progressive house wife that’s cool with watching their partner go fuck other bands?” Fortunately the split didn't last long, with the duo forming ANTEMASQUE a few months later. In July the pair released a more-punk-than-prog debut album, which features Flea on bass and one-time TMV drummer Dave Elitch. Tonight the band will play its fourth-ever show, and it'll be bringing the aforementioned Le Butcherettes along for the ride. — Cory Graves
Sorcerer at the Magnolia
One of the best films in history is Henri-Georges Clouzot's The Wages of Fear. Adapted from the novel Le Salaire de la peur, Wages puts desperate men on a suicide mission to deliver nitroglycerin without proper equipment and dump trucks without decent shocks or a guarantee they won't blow themselves the hell up with the slightest bump in the road. It's a nail-biter. Years later, William Friedkin (The Exorcist) remade it, starring Roy Scheider, (Steven Spielberg's Jaws), and it's just as great. — CW
Tromeo & Juliet at Texas Theatre (Free)
I don't know why anyone would want to revisit Lloyd Kaufman's Tromeo & Juliet. When I think about this film, all I remember is popcorn and rats coming out of Juliet's stomach, forever scarring the way I see pregnant women. It's definitely a stretch of the imagination, and one that is sure to leave a lasting impression. That may or may not be a good thing. — CW
The History of Future Folk at Kessler Theater (Free)
The History of Future Folk is a rarity. It's about the real life weirdo bluegrass duo, Future Folk. It's funny and charming flick that really delves into the time-traveling alien musicians' past. The band loves to attend screenings and play a show shortly afterwards. This is what's in store for tonight, and if you RSVP through Do214, it's all free. — CW
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods at Select Theaters
You know how we’re all about supporting the little guys? DFW’ own anime distribution company, Funimation, is releasing a new Dragon Ball Z feature in theaters for four days only. Starting tonight, you can catch Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods at any of the local Studio Movie Grills or the Alamo Drafthouse. Also, if you dress up as your favorite Dragon Ball Z, you’ll win free weird stares from people, but your pride will live on forever. — CW
Fall Out Boy,
Paramore at Gexa Energy Pavilion
Hey, got at least $68.95 to spare? If so, you're in luck. This is the starting price for tonight's Fall Out Boy and Paramore concert. I have never been to a concert more than $8, but I'm the least hip one on Central Track. — CW
Update: Paramore has cancelled its performance tonight due to the illness of frontwoman Hayley Williams. Fall Out Boy will still perform.
Dirty Heads, Pepper at South Side Ballroom
The title of Dirty Heads' new album, Sound of Change, really tells you everything you need to know about this one. The band's new material delves deeper than any prior albums into the it's growth and own personal experiences, while maintaining the same sweet, melodic “ska-thenticity” that we so love about the band. Catch it live tonight; AER, Katastro and Pepper open. — Chrissi Chetwood
