Acro-Cats at Texas Theatre
Your cat is cool, but these cats are way cooler. Like if Knight Rider and CHiPs were on American Gladiator cool. Samantha Martin and her Amazing Acro-Cats have been tightrope walking, skateboarding, balancing on balls and rocking out in their band, The Rock Cats, for over 10 years. Cat lovers will swoon and cat haters will rethink all of their assumptions of what a cat can do (or will do). — Roberto Aguilar

Oral Fixation: “Partner in Crime” at Dallas City Performance Hall
Stories. We all have them. Typically there are a few we like to retell over and over again, too. Maybe it's that one night in college when you took in too many drinks and regretted everything in the morning. Or that old tale from the family get-togethers during which your grandma embarrasses you in front of your significant other for the countless time. They're fun to listen to — and even more fun to tell. Oral Fixation affords Dallasites the chance to do that. Now in its fifth season, the 2011-launched endeavor continues on with its “Partner in Crime” themed show. — Angela Jones

Top 8 Tuesday at The Prophet Bar (Small Room)
“Top 8? Don't you mean Top 10?” No way, you n00b. Think MySpace. Think studded belts, snake bite piercings and heartbreak.
