Paak It Up, Paak It In.

Starting next academic year, Emerson College will begin offering a B.F.A. in comedic arts. That’s right, the minds of tomorrow will have the option of majoring in comedy. Of course, some would argue that a lot of higher education is already a joke, anyway.

What’s not a joke is how stacked this Tuesday night in Dallas is. It’s absolutely jam packed with fun times — no foolin’! — Cory Graves

Anderson .Paak at House of Blues
Paak’s style is reminiscent of Kendrick Lamar’s delivery on To Pimp A Butterfly; smooth, street-savvy and, most of all, unique. The Oxnard, Calivornia-born producer, singer, rapper and drummer has even caught the eye of Dr. Dre. If you’ve yet to hear .Paak, this is the perfect opportunity. — Sidney Johnson

Tokyo Police Club at Trees
Tokyo Police Club? We Were Promised Jetpacks? Some of these band names had to have been produced with a random name generator, right? Still, it’s hard to deny the perennial success of Tokyo Police Club. The Toronto quintet may have the narrow appeal of something instantly familiar (because it is), but damn, those hooks are worth remembering. — Calvin Cashen

The Supervillains at Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill
Since 1998, St. Cloud, Florida’s The Supervillian’s unique blend of punk, ska and reggae has earned the band plenty of attention. This time around it’ll be a crowd of eclectic area concert-goers at Gas Monkey paying them mind. — Evan Henry

Bonnie and Clyde at The Magnolia
Bonnie and Clyde’s is one of the best stories ever told, and one of the best movies to boot. Directed by Arthur Penn in 1967, it stars Warren Beatty as Clyde Barrow and Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker. The movie itself was very cutting-edge as far as movie violence and sexuality goes. If you’re a fan of revisionist westerns and/or Dallas history, this is a great film to watch. Plus, it influenced one of Serge Gainsbourg coolest songs. — Roberto Aguilar

Visceral Cuts, Bitch Teeth, Mirror, Seres at Texas Theatre
Just because the Oak Cliff Film Festival wrapped yesterday doesn’t mean the Texas Theatre folks can’t keep the good times rolling. Horror score punk rockers Visceral Cuts performs at the theatre tonight, along with Bitch Teeth, Mirror and Seres. — CG

Not only is rock legend Pat Benatar celebrating the 37th anniversary of the song from whence that bit of lyrics came, but also her marriage to guitarist Neil Giraldo, who has written and produced much of Benatar’s catalog over the years. You, um, better run. — CG
