Bury The Hatchet.
Last week, a man in Texas was arrested on his ninth DUI charge. Fittingly, he was wearing a shirt that read “I Do Dumb Things” at the time.
To his credit, letting people know what you're all about from the jump is never a bad policy. So, taking a page out of his book, you just might find us out wearing an “I Go Out On Tuesday Nights” shirt this evening.
And, really, considering all that's going on tonight, why wouldn't you? — Cory Graves
A Place to Bury Strangers at Dada
If noise rock doesn't annoy the shit out of you with its perpetual cacophonies and dissonance, you might like A Place to Bury Strangers and want to catch them live at Dada. This is the show, it's worth noting, that was originally supposed to go down over the weekend but got postponed. If you're not familiar with the noise rock genre, just give APTBS a listen and one song should clear things up for you. Other genres the band falls into include shoegaze, psychedelic and space rock. — Carly Seitz
Tuesday Night Trash: Decoder at Texas Theatre (Free)
Based loosely on William S. Burroughs book, Electronic Revolution, 1984 Cyberpunk art house flick Decoder tells the story of an experimental musician who realizes the government is using Muzak to control its population, and launches a counterattack using, hey, noise rock again! Following the screening, the theater will start up another round of its regular “Show Your Shorts” nights, featuring homemade short films submitted by locals. — CG
Jazz Night at Small Brewpub
When one door closes, another generally opens. And for that crop of Amsterdam Bar regulars wondering where they'll turn now for their weekly jazz fix in the wake of the spot's closing, there's a silver lining. In the past two months, Oak Cliff's upstart Small Brewpub, has been building up quite a solid little jazz night of its own. — CG
A Streetcar Named Desire at The Magnolia
A Streetcar Named Desire is a 1951 American film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 play of the same name by Tennessee Williams — not to mention the basis for one of our favorite Simpsons episodes. Showings are at 7 and 10 p.m. — Lauren Rushing
Martin Greenfield at The Schultz Rosenberg Campus
Martin Greenfield survived the Holocaust and went on to become one of the world's most successful tailors. He founded Martin Greenfield Clothiers, Ltd. in 1977 when he bought the factory from his employer, GGG Clothes. Since starting his company, he's worked for some pretty impressive clients, including several presidents and Hollywood celebrities. Also, he tailored the suits for the hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire, which has been nominated these last four years for the “Outstanding Costumes For A Series” Emmy. So yeah, he's a pretty impressive guy. His life story, filled with with both his struggles and successes, is sure to captivate, so be sure to catch him when he speaks at the JCC of Dallas this Tuesday. — CS
Karoke With Carmen at Sons of Hermann Hall
Karaoke Carmen — who recently ended her 12-year run at East Dallas dive The Goat and relocated her Sunday night residency to Adair's — was set to start up a second Deep Ellum weekly last Tuesday at Sons of Hermann Hall. Alas, last week's #sleetshow2015 put an end to that. Per Carmen, when she does make her first Sons appearance tonight, it'll run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., and be funded entirely based on donations. Meaning? Tip money talks — er, sings, as it were — and she'll (perhaps) ease up a tad on her famously entertaining autocratic tendencies. Maybe. — CG
Sean Lowe Book Signing at Half Price Books
The former Bachelor and Bachelorette star will stop by HPB's flagship store at 7 p.m. to sign copies of his new book, For The Right Reasons. Yup.– CG
Face/Off at Alamo Drafthouse
Although Nicolas Cage has received a lot of criticism over the last decade or so, earning him the No. 17 spot on Complex's “The 50 Worst Actors In Hollywood History” list, dude was a pretty well-liked guy at one point. He even won the “Best Actor in a Leading Role” Oscar for his performance in the 1995 flick, Leaving Las Vegas. Actually, 1995 was a particularly good year for him, as it was the year he also starred in the riveting action movie Face/Off with John Travolta. If you haven't seen that film — or you would like to see it again — head over to the Alamo Drafthouse this Tuesday when the theater shows it at 7 p.m. Afterward, stick around for the theater's monthly Adult Spelling Bee event. Contestants are more than welcome to drink while competing, but try not to slur your words or spell any racial slurs, unless you want to risk missing out on prizes. Donald Glover won't be there to pressure you, and though the Alamo says “any word is fair game,” we don't expect things to get quite that distasteful. — CS
#artisapublicgood Call To Action Meeting at Ash Studios
On May 9, Dallasite will have the ability to elect some new City Council members. There's a certain segment of the population that thinks improving the city's cultural policy should be a player in who gets elected, and they'll be meeting this evening to discuss how they can make their desires come to fruition at the polls. Interested? Feel free to show up and find out how you can help. — CG
