Feel Like Funkin' Up Your Holidays.
As far as housecleaning robots go, Roombas were so 2007. Have you seen this new robo maid that LG came up with? It can clean areas of your house based on photos of dirty spots you text it. It also uses a series of cameras to patrol your house for intruders 24/7.
Really, vacuuming your house seems to be something this little guy only does when it's bored. But that's neither here nor there, as you won't be doing any vacuuming tonight. For one, you've got a robot to do that for you. Also? With everything going on tonight, there's no way you'll be that bored. — Cory Graves
Preservation Hall Jazz Band at Meyerson Symphony Center
Kicking around since the early '60s, New Orleans' own Preservation Hall Jazz Band will be kicking it at the Meyerson (sans the DSO, sorry) for two nights. So, if you feel like funkin' up your holidays, welp, this would be the place. — CG
Josh Groban at the Music Hall at Fair Park
For but a few weeks at the end of the year, the moms of America raise Josh Groban up to hark their most heralded little holiday angel to sing selections from the most profitable portion of his catalog. This would be one of those weeks. And just like that, come this Saturday, he'll begin another year-long hibernation. God rest that merry gentleman. — CG
A Christmas Story at The Magnolia
Oh fudge, A Christmas Story is on the big screen tonight. Take that TBS. — CG
J. Fernandez at Double Wide
This fall, the Birmingham, Alabama-based power-gaze trio Wray stopped through Dallas to play Dada in an opening capacity on the Man or Astro-man? tour. It was the band's first time to play in town, but we just knew after the reception they received for their hazy bent on pop music that the guys will be back sooner than later. Tonight they do just that, this time opening for Chicago-based lo-fi electro-pop musician J Fernandez. — Evan Henry
Jingle Bell Run at Hilton Anatole
Will you be there with literal bells on when this one-mile walk/5K run goes down? Registartion ends at 4 p.m. — CG
K Theory at Red Light Lounge
As something of an early Kristmas present, the San Francisco-based producer K Theory has been releasing a free-to-download song every day this month. That's 22 new jams to dance to and counting. Pre-sale tickets sold out in advance, so you might want to show up early. — CG
