Eat Your Dinner and Have Your Elvis, Too.
Take a look around.
Something seems to be going on.
Things sure are getting awfully “Christmas-y” around town lately.
Before you know it, people will be giving other people gifts just because they care about them.
Ugh. People are the worst.
But, truth is, the holiday bug will probably get you too at some point. So just embrace it. Maybe at one of the following events!
Bomb The Music Industry! at Club Dada
Sadly, your favorite DIY punk collective, Bomb The Music Industry!, has announced a future breakup. That means that their show tonight (with strong supporting acts New Science Projects and The Happy Alright) will be their last here in Dallas. Serious fans need to check this out. Doors at 8 p.m.
Elm Street Tattoo Wig Party at the Double Wide
This annual pre-Elm Street Tattoo Christmas Bash bash asks that attendees show up wearing a wig — because, hey, they performers are. Catch drag punk performances from American Waste and Punk Rock Girls, then stick around for the reunion of Dallas rock trio Slowride.
Holiday Party at the Common Desk
In celebration (or desperate panic driven fear) of the oncoming apocalypse, Digital Dallas will be throwing the community a party at the Common Desk in Deep Ellum. The event is complete with booze, merch, a photobooth and a chance to DJ the party via turntable.fm. Starts at 6 p.m.
Xmas Elvis Competition at La Calle Doce
Those of you needing to have professional Elvis impersonators sing Christmas tunes to you while you eat your dinner tonight have very specific needs. Lucky for you, those exact needs are being met at 7:30 at La Calle Doce in Lakewood tonight.
Urban Dictionary Spelling Bee at the Chat Room Pub
Tonight, The Chat Room offers a spelling bee of words plucked from Urban Dictionary. Hopefully, you won't get a hard word to spell, like “alamodevated .” Whatever.
Vinyl Preservation Society at Barley House
There's another meeting of the Vinyl Preservation Society tonight, and, once again, it's at the Barley House. The theme this time? “Christmas” and “First Times.” We recommend bringing Bruce Springsteen's “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”
