Take a Hit.

You know what’s awesome? Celebrity fan fiction. Seriously, it’s all the rage these days.

This month will even see the publication of a new book of celebrity fan fiction stories, including one titled “Taking Selfies and Overthrowing the Patriarchy with Kim Kardashian.”

Something else that’s pretty awesome is always having the scoop about what’s going on around town on any given night. One such list is published below. — Cory Graves

Acid Mothers Temple at Three Links
Acid Mothers Temple is a Japanese psychedelic rock band that’s been putting out new, weird music consistently for the past 20 years. The songs are long and musically very dense. Despite the appropriate band name, you don’t need acid to see the complexity in the band’s music, but it couldn’t hurt. Mounds and ST37 open. — Paul Wedding

Oral Fixation: “Pulling Teeth” at Dallas City Performance Hall
Oral Fixation is a monthly series of adult storytelling, each event with a different theme. The theme of this event will be “Pushing Teeth,” related not only to stories of dentistry or the tooth fairy, but of awkward family events and times at the DMV and so forth. Laugh, cry, gasp, the series has received tons of praise and this time should be no different. — PW

Thin Line Presents: Cam’ron at Rockin’ Rodeo
Thin Line was able to get rapper Cam’ron to perform at Rockin’ Rodeo in Denton of all places. There seems to be something happening out that way of late, considering Young Thug is going to be performing in nearby Krum very soon as well. Whatever it is, we’re not complaining. — PW

Leila Chudori at Alamo Drafthouse (Dallas)
Leila Chudori will be doing a Q&A session alongside a screening of the new documentary, The Look of Silence, which is a companion piece to The Act of Killing, both of which about the 1965 Indonesian genocide. If you’re ever having a good day and don’t want that anymore, look no further than these two movies. Chudori is an Indonesian author and journalist who has written on the atrocities committed in Indonesia during this period of time. — PW

Faster Pussycat at The Rail Club
The self-described “kings of sleaze rock,” Faster Pussycat is a glam metal band that somehow lived past the ’80s and is still producing music today. If you couldn’t tell, most of their gimmick is being offensive, with songs such as “Where There’s a Whip, There’s a Way,” “The Power & the Glory Hole,” and “Shut Up & Fuck.” Joey C. Jones and Blackout open. —PW

Major League at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
Next to Bull Durham, this is the best baseball movie ever made. And one of the best sports movies ever made, following a team of underdogs as they attempt to salvage their dying baseball team. It features future Hollywood stars such as pre-drugs Charlie Sheen and pre-prison Wesley Snipes. Just don’t ever watch the sequels. — PW

Chingo Bling at Addison Improv
Chingo Bling is a Houston-based rapper most famous for parodying famous songs like “Call Me Maybe” and “Hotline Bling” and focusing them on Mexican stereotypes. Why this is at a comedy club is beyond me. –< em>PW

Little Green Cars at Dada
Little Green Cars is an Irish rock band that those hipster girls at your college were probably really into. Admittedly, their latest album has added so depth, sonically. But most of their tracks are very shallow in composition and in songwriting, a lot of chorus and a lot of songs about love. John Mark Nelson opens. — PW

Dallas Mavericks vs San Antonio Spurs at American Airlines Center
The Mavericks have kind of been getting their asses kicked by the Spurs for most of this season. with a current record of 2-5 against them. This is the last game of the regular season, and it’s a home game, so hopefully we can give the Spurs a loss as they look forward to the playoffs. — PW
