How Low Can You Go?

Thanks to a new Chrome extension, you can now be in a long distance “Netflix and Chill” relationship. The new party mode makes sure you and your invitees streams are all synched up, and even includes a chat bar.

So, no need to go outside or talk to real people anymore ever. Sweet! Haha, jk. People are sometimes fun to interact with in person. And there will be lots of them out tonight for you to bump into face-to-face, even. Here’s some places you might find a few of them. — Cory Graves

Ludacris at The Bomb Factory
You really can’t say much that everyone doesn’t already know about Ludacris. Just scream “Luda!” the next time you’re out and people will turn and smile. They will probably chunk up a deuce, bob their heads and swag shuffle right on out to what they were doing. Ludacris is probably the best rapper for features, has one of the most recognizable voices and can transform himself into whatever style he wants. OK, that’s enough. Go get your alligator boots, floor length mink coat and hella ice and get ready for Ludacris at The Bomb Factory. — Roberto Aguilar

Carson McHone, Jake Paleshic at Magnolia Motor Lounge
After playing sideman to Austin-based acts like Shakey Graves for years, Carson McHone finally release her debut full-length last summer. It’s a good one, too, and one that’s landed her on several of those lists we critics like to publish from time to time about up-and-coming acts that are about to blow the fuck up. But in this case, we tend to agree with our colleagues. She’s a star waiting to happen. And sooner than later. Fort Worth’s Jake Paleshic, who’s arrow is pointed a similar direction, also performs. — CG

Xanadu at The Magnolia
Xanadu sounds like a pill you take to quell your hallucinations, but really it’s just a movie from 1980 about a fantastic world of flashing lights, dance numbers and gorgeous hair. Starring Olivia Newton John (Grease), Michael Beck (The Warriors) and the best dancer ever to hit the silver screen, Gene Kelly. There doesn’t seem to be much to the plot. It’s the same old tale of two lovers who no one can keep apart. Awww, barf. The best part of this musical is, of course, the music. In fact, Electric Light Orchestra composed five of the songs. Not too shabby. — RA

Daughter at Trees (Sold Out)
British indie-folk trio, Daughter’s new sophomore LP has been compared to bands like Beach House. I guess that’s a sound the people are currently clamoring for, though, seeing as Beach House is playing the cavernous Bomb Factory next month, and this outfit sold out the still-pretty-impressively-sized Trees. Wilsen opens. — CG

Alyas Batman en Robin at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
This 1991 Filipino film spoofs the Adam West-led Batman television series of the ’60s. To be fair, there was a lot to make fun of there. Pow pow. — CG

Crock-Pot Cook-Off II at Single Wide
Get yer butt in the trailer, and get crockin’! Bring your best slow cooker recipes — mmm, pot roast — and prepare for judgement. It really is a blast. And easy, too. Just provide the food and serving utensils, and Single Wide will bring the bowls and plastic ware. Shoot, if you don’t win, at least you can chug on $2 wells and domestics. Those of you not bringing in your slow-cooked masterpieces, just prepare to eat, eat, eat! — RA

Greg Dulli at Kessler Theater
In 1987, Greg Dulli started his musical career with the Afghan Whigs, and has since formed other bands like The Twilight Singers and The Gutter Twins. His solo work is more dynamic instrumentally than his work with the Afghan Whigs. He incorporates some jazz and world music elements into his music with his breathy voice that drips with sincerity. His current tour is a stripped down version of his band, and will feature songs encompassing his entire career. Joining him on his North American tour is literary stylist Derrick Brown. — RA

Hopped Up Cinema: Blair Witch Project at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
The Blair Witch Project is probably one of the most iconic movies of the 1990s. It had so much hype around the movie, was incredibly cutting edge in its form and was the hugest let down when you learned it was fake. Yet, the film makers have been forgiven especially by the Alamo Drafthouse and the Hopped Up Cinema series. For this installment, the Texas Ale Project will provide a flight of five of their best beers including a special witch’s brew. Spooky delicious. — RA
