Swim With The Shark.
Sixteen years after (allegedly) sharing a dirty tattoo with Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, Pamela Anderson announced she's finally cured of Hep C.
The liver disease that currently infects over 3 million Americans, Anderson says is now curable thanks to a new, FDA-approved drug cocktail. That's good news, especially for anyone dabbling in intravenous drug use or potential blood transfusions this evening.
On the other hand, you should probably remain cautious, as that new drug costs $84,000 for each pill in a multi-pill regimen. Ouch. Perhaps it's better to play it safe. — Cory Graves
Shopping at Double Wide
London post-punk trio Shopping just released its sophomore LP via FatCat Records, and is currently on its first-ever U.S. tour. Its music is danceable in a punky sorta way, and who knows when it'll make its way back to our side of the pond. Helping welcome them to town is Dallas' PVC Street Gang. — CG
Daymond John at UTA
Sharknado 2 and Shark Tank star Daymond John is the definition of a maverick, turning $800 worth of hats he sewed in his garage into $6 billion in sales for FUBU. Tonight he speaks to a bunch of fellow Mavericks at UTA. — CG
Youth Lagoon, Moon King at Dada
Youth Lagoon's mastermind, Trevor Powers, is all about that dreamy indie pop-rock life. And, as such, the three albums he's released to date have each been met with wide critical acclaim. Need more proof that he's something special? He's on Fat Possum Records, a label known for pretty much everything except for the kind of music Powers makes. And yet he stands out. He's that good. Moon King and Rat Rios open. — H. Drew Blackburn
It's Just Banter Live Taping at Off the Record (Free)
If you're a listener of KTCK 1310-AM or 96.7 FM, you probably feel like you already know TC Fleming and Jake Kemp well. And if you're not a listener of The Ticket? Well, whatever. Hopefully, by now, you've at least checked out their It's Just Banter podcast, which, we've partnered up with to release every Wednesday. Either way, you've got your best opportunity to familiarize yourself with these two tonight, as they tape this week's edition of “your second favorite podcast” live at Off the Record. — Pete Freedman
Tuesday Night Trash: Blood Freak at Texas Theatre
Originally conceived as a full-length anti-marijuana campaign, 1972's unintentionally comedic horror flick Blood Freak finds a Vietnam vet smoking his first doob and winding up with a giant turkey head in place of his own. Some of that is true. — CG
X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey at Cambridge Room
Skylar Grey's released plenty of albums of her own, but she's perhaps better known as one of pop music's most prolific hook-singer. To wit: she sang the hooks on Fort Minor's “Where'd You Go,” Diddy's “Coming Home,” Dr. Dre's “I Need a Doctor,” T.I.'s “New National Anthem” and Nicki Minaj's “Bed of Lies.” Tonight she opens for New York indie rockers X Ambassadors as the two acts wrap up the second night of a back-to-back at this venue. — CG
On the Waterfront at The Magnolia
As a part of the theater's weekly Big Movie series, The Magnolia will be screening the 1954 classic On the Waterfront starring Marlon Brando. The film is an American crime drama about union violence and corruption, which received eight out of the 12 Academy Awards it was nominated for, including best motion picture and best actor. So, yeah, pretty good stuff. — Porttia Portis
Santo & Blue Demon vs The Monsters at Alamo Drafthouse
Between 1958 and 1982, Santo — aka the greatest, most celebrated luchador of them all — filmed over 50 low budget movies where he battled all types of demons and monsters. This one co-stars the Blue Demon, another of the sport's legends. It's bad, to be sure, but you've really got to respect the pageantry. — CG
