Home Is Where The Bar Is.
Life's too short to get roped into doing a bunch of stuff you don't want to do all the time. There are always ways to get out of these things, though. For instance, you could always fake your own death, as this European woman did on her wedding day to get out of that whole lifelong ordeal.
We're not saying she could have avoided the lengthy measures had she planned her future a little better, but it certainly couldn't have hurt.
Don't end up having to fake your own death tonight; think long and hard about what you're going to do tonight. — Cory Graves
Monty Python's The Meaning of Life at Sundown
Have you ever thought, “What is the meaning of life, man?” It's a very valid question, but you should probably cut down on the marijuana intake and focus on getting a job, slacker. if you really want a quick and flippant answer, Monty Python may have that for you in their fifth and final laughtacular film, The Meaning of Life. — Chase Whale
Sullivan & Son Tour at Addison Improv
Sullivan & Son is an atrocious TV show. It's got a bad laugh track, horrible comedic timing and some overtly racist — and otherwise completely unfunny — humor thrown in for good measure. That the show is so bad is actually pretty amazing, as the stars of the show — the guys leading this tour — all have terrific stand-up chops. The best of the bunch is probably Roy Wood Jr., who has a terrific Twitter account, and a devastating deadpan delivery. — Stephen Young
Tele Novella, Howler Jr., SuperSonic Lips at Two Bronze Doors
Dallas Distortion Music brings Austin psych pop band Tele Novella up to Lower Greenville DIY venue Two Bronze Doors tonight. Joining them on the bill will be local bands Howler Jr. (in an uncommon one-man performance) and SuperSonic Lips, and it should prove to be a great way to stave off the lull of Humpday. All ages are welcome, and tickets are $6 at the door. The show starts at 8 p.m. Oh, and bring an acoustic instrument: There might be a jam session going down on 2BD's porch afterwards. — Chris Escarfullery
Trey Johnson at Vagabond
The new bar smell hasn't even worn off from Lower Greenville's Vagabond, and already its weekly acoustic performances have become some of the hottest tickets in town. The fact that several of Dallas' food rags have written up that the joint serves up some of the best bar food in North Texas certainly doesn't hurt, either. At tonight's edition, longtime Dallas singer-songwriter Trey Johnson will do his solo thing — and for free, to boot. — CG
Elvis Night at El Ranchito
For going on 11 years now, it's been a hump day tradition at this Oak Cliff eatery to host Elvis impersonators during The King's birth and death months (January and August). Juan “Elvizz” Sanchez is tonight's featured performer. And, as always, the restaurant'll be serving up the best — or, at the very least, the most underrated — margaritas in town. Reservations are very much recommended. — CG
Dead Flowers at So & So's
The Phuss drummer Trey Alfaro, who was recently injured in a hit-and-run accident is, at the time of this writing, only $1,400 short of his fundraising goal to help pay for his upcoming medical bills. To help push Alfaro close the gap, gritty southern rockers Dead Flowers are donating two sets tonight at new-ish Uptown spot, So & So's. Starting at 10 p.m., a portion of the money raised at the bar will go towards Alfaro's campaign, with the bar's owners also committing to donate some extra cash from their own pockets as well. — CG
Thumpers, Sun Club, NITE at Three Links
Thumpers is a rock-pop group from London that has an infectious quality to its music that makes you want to get up and dance. Check out the band's single “Unkinder (A Tougher Love)” to get a feel for the energy that you can expect to see at tonight's show. Sun Club from Baltimore, Maryland, rides more on the rock side of the rock-pop spectrum. They'll open this one up along with Denton's NITE, a band you really should check out. — CE
