Listen to the Mountain Goats Discuss The Greatest Metal Band Out of Denton.
It's December now, which means the moment we have all been waiting for is fast approaching.
Yes, that's right! The 2012 apocalypse!
Let's be real: Who can even think of the holidays, knowing that our impending doom is near? It's sad, but Christmas is getting completely shadowed by the oncoming apocalypse.
Maybe make the best of things and, this year, instead of buying holiday gifts for your friends, family and talking parrots, you can just get them an end of the world gift.
Perhaps get them something really meaningful. Like Mountain Goats tickets! Or canned food items!
Mountain Goats at Granada Theater
Singer-songwriter John Darnielle has turned his musical project, Mountain Goats, into a great thing. If you enjoy a) fun music with meaningful lyrics, b) a super-engaged crowd, and c) witty commentary between songs, then look no further than this show tonight at Granada Theater. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Dying Fetus at Trees
Casual streetwalkers strolling down Deep Ellum tonight will hear some serious sound radiating from Trees. Joined by a whole slew of other bands with equal or less gruesome names (Cattle Decapitation, Cerebral Bore, Earthrot, Kaliya and Astyanax), Dying Fetus will scream their way into Dallas' hearts tonight. Doors at 7 p.m.
Dallas Digital Summit 2012
Tonight, begins the
community Windows Vista burning digital device summit being held at Union Station. The summit will have many speakers from some of the top electronic industries around (including speakers from Google and Twitter), all of whom will be on hand to advise guests on everything from social media to email to online advertising. Check it out and gain valuable information on how to make your business thrive online. Or just go and ask them if they can troubleshoot some problems you've been having on your Mac. Those lines for the so-called “geniuses” at the Apple store are just too long.
Open Mic Night at the Dallas Comedy House
Your family may have been unmoved by your comedy stylings at Thanksgiving, but what do they know about progressive comedy, anyway? Fortunately, there's still time to sharpen your skills before Christmas. So go practice at the Dallas Comedy House! Each Tuesday, the venue offers its free open mic night, where anyone can sit in and watch amateur comics. Or you can get on stage and be one of those amateur comics. Your call.
