Come To Life.
Because we have an internal bet going on to see how many stories about farting animals we can link to this week, we give you this, the story of some German cows whose farts caused an explosion.
One of the cows, it seems, was a drunken frat boy that was overheard just moments before the incident telling one of his cow buddies that you “could too light a fart.”
If there's a lesson to be learned from all this, it's the importance of getting out of the house every once in a while. Don't be a cow. There's too much excitement going on to risk staying in and dying in a fart-related catastrophe.
Red Bull Sound Select Presents: Fucked Up at Dada
Joining the folks behind Spune and yours truly, Parade of Flesh is now a part of the team of local entities responsible for curating acts for Red Bull's monthly Sound Select series. And their first get is a doozy. Despite the band's potentially offensive moniker, melodic Canadian hardcore act Fucked Up is one of the few acts from that genre to gain a pretty widespread acceptance from fans outside that circle. Considering this bill's $3 price of admission, we'll go out on a limb and predict an easy sellout here. B L A C K I E and Mountain of Smoke open, and both are also well worth your time. — Cory Graves
D.O.A. at Gas Monkey Bar & Grill
D.O.A. — Arguably the founders of hardcore punk — will potentially make their last-ever stop in Dallas when their “Farewell Tour” stops at the Gas Monkey Bar & Grill. While the band has released 14 albums in its astounding 35 years of existence, Joey “Shithead” Keithley is the sole founding member left standing. Oh, well. Everything comes to an end sometime. And besides, Keithley will always have his Sudden Death Records label to fall back on. — Porschia Paxton
Fantastic Four at The Grotto
Let's get one thing straight: This will not be a screening of the 2005 Fantastic Four flick — nor any of its subsequent sequels. Rather, the minds behind Fort Worth's Wondercrust Movie Watcher's Club will use their monthly screening to show the unreleased 1994 film of the same name, produced by low-budget auteur Roger Corman. As such, expect plenty of roasting from the peanut gallery. Admission is free, and there will be chances to win some free schwag, too. — PP
Elvis Wednesdays at El Ranchito
Tonight, Oak Cliff eatery El Ranchito will forego its typical mariachi barrage for the second (and final) round of its Elvis impersonator contest. Don't worry: They'll still be serving up the best — or, at the very least, the most underrated — margaritas in town. Reservations are also very much recommended. — CG
