Spend enough time doing any one thing over and over, and you can become a master of your craft. Take this guy, for instance. He's played Mike Tyson's Punch Out so many times, he can now beat it blindfolded.
Sounds like a lot of work, if you ask us. There were probably some better things he could have done with that time.
It's safe to assume, we think, that he didn't have a list like the one we've posted below, just sitting there and ready to point him in the direction of some cool stuff.
You, on the other hand, are much luckier. — Cory Graves
Zola Jesus at Trees
Zola Jesus is a Russian-American dark wave musician whose fifth album, last year's Taiga, was largely influenced a childhood spent raised in the Wisconsin wilderness without any TV or Internet. It's been four years since her last Dallas stop, so you probably don't want to skip out on her sure-to-be breathtaking performance. — Lauren Rushing
Wale at House of Blues
Later this year, rapper Wale will release a new LP, the Jerry Seinfeld-inspired The Album About Nothing, which will also feature an appearance from the legendary comedian. It may come as a surprise, but the two are actually pals. Probably not close enough that Jerry will make a surprise appearance at this show, though. But you never know. — CG
The Rocketboys at Dada
The Rocketboys' usually melancholy, but sometimes insightful melodic light rock might not be the thing for everybody. But those who enjoy piano-driven sophistication and references to October Sky, will likely be right at home at this show from the Austin band. — Chelsea Upton
Downfall of Gaia at Double Wide
Extreme German metal band Downfall of Gaia released its second record for Metal Blade back in November. The concept record tackles the band's scariest subject matter to date — the slavery of mankind to time and “the beat of a ticking clock.” As such, the group feels like it's currently touring its most aggressive work yet. Mountain of Smoke and Dead to a Dying World open. — CG
Brooke Fraser at Cambridge Room
In her native New Zealand, Brooke Fraser's something of a huge pop star, with three chart-topping albums already under her belt. Things are a bit different for the vaguely Christian singer on our shores, though, and Fraser will be playing much smaller rooms in support of the album she just released in the U.S. via Sony. — CG
Neverending Story at Sundown
Atreyu! Falkor! If you're a baby of the '80s like me, then the luckdragon is on your side this Humpday. Sundown's showing the 1984 classic about a boy transported to the fantasy world of Fantasia via the pages of mysterious book on its rooftop patio this evening — and for free, no less. — James Wallace
