Make Your Last Breath Count.
A while back, a 51-year-old British man was arrested for possessing a “tiger porn” video, then subsequently released when it was discovered that the video in question actually depicted a woman having sex with a man in a tiger costume and not an actual tiger. Still, he says that 2009 “extreme porn” law that makes it illegal to possess tiger porn and the like is totally bogus.
Fortunately, there's no such law on the books prohibiting tiger porn in the U.S., so there's no reason to live in fear.
But really, with so many better things to do tonight than watching fornicating animals, it probably shouldn't be much of an issue for you either way. — Cory Graves
Milo Greene at The Loft
Interestingly enough, nobody in Milo Greene is actually named Milo. Still, the band's smooth and humble sounds are nothing short of captivating. The quintet puts on an atmospheric set of tunes that would jive perfectly around a nice camp fire with a few of your closest friends. Nearly every band member contributes vocals within the band's dreamy, almost haunting, harmony showcase, too. — Kalan Briggs
Melvins at Trees
Hugely influential grunge progenitors the Melvins hit Trees again after playing a couple of wild shows at the venue the past two years. Without the band's slowing — and sludging up — of the '80s dominant hardcore sound, Nirvana never would have happened. Thank your lucky stars that it did, then go see King Buzzo and the boys. — Stephen Young
Authority Zero at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill
Want to hear something that will instantly make you feel old? Authority Zero has been around for going on 19 years now. After multiple lineup changes, the ska/skate-punk group released its fifth studio album last April. The like-minded Bastard Suns and locals Fat by the Gallon open. — Jessica Petrocchi
Thing at Three Links
After Jay Reatard passed away in 2010, his Lost Sounds bandmates moved on to start other projects. For drummer Rich Crooks, that came in the form of melodic punk outfit Lover and, in recent months, Thing. We'll save you the trouble of trying to track down an MP3 of the all but completely un-Google-able band and point you to one here. To be honest, that difficult-to-find aspect is probably on purpose, as it means showing up to Three Links tonight truly is the easiest place to find Thing's music. — CG
Trick 'r Treat at The Magnolia
You better watch out, I'm telling you why: Sam is coming to town. And when the characters in this film — which is really more like four short flims — break with Halloween tradition, the pint-sized trick or treater in a shabby orange costume and burlap mask comes to fuck things up. While the sequel is currently in the works, see the Anna Paquin- and Dylan Baker-starring cult classic that started it all. — CG
Dallas Mavericks Season Opener Watching Party at Granada Theater
What better way to gauge the meddle of the new-look Mavericks and its pair of newly acquired Chandlers than by taking on the defending NBA champs on their home turf? There's none that we can think of, anyway. RSVP here to reserve a spot to get rowdy, proud and loud at the Granada with your fellow MFFLs. — CG
Devil's Progress at Dan's Silverleaf (Free)
Between them, Hares on the Mountain bandmates Ryan Thomas Becker and Petra Kelly have played with more North Texas bands than we can count on two hands. Tonight, the duo's Sparklehorse tribute will make a rare appearance at this free-to-attend Dan's Silverleaf show. — CG
Nightbreed (Director's Cut) at Texas Theatre
Twenty-four years after the fact, Clive Barker's fantasy horror flick has finally landed on Blu-Ray. This director's cut — some copies of which will be given away at tonight's screening — features some 40 minutes of bonus footage reclaimed from the cutting room floor. This evening, you can finally see it as Barker intended. — CG
“An American Horror Tease” at Sue Ellen's
At their Halloween version of their weekly drag event, Nikki Trash and her merry band of drag kings (and queens) — not tom mention burlesque, queerlesque and boylesque performers and, yes, eve comedians — will take a walk on the even wilder side with tonight's horror-themed display. — CG
Scream at Alamo Drafthouse
Do you like scary movies? Hopefully you do, because the film that helped Neve Campbell become the Scream Queen of the '90s is screening tonight at the Drafthouse. The film holds up, we think, in part because the Sidney Prescott character had an untouchable innocence to her and Campbell turned her into something fierce. — Chase Whale
