Explore Deadly Instruments with Bass Drum of Death.
Halfway through this week, you must ask yourself: Have I had a slurpee today? What about a free slurpee at 7-11? If the answer is “no,” then you hate fun and you must be destroyed (or you could just go and get yourself a Slurpee). Yes, today is 7/11, the day in which 7-Eleven offers everyone in the world a free Slurpee. Embrace it and get yourself one.
Then, after you get your free refreshment, there's a slew of other things going on in town tonight.
Bass Drum of Death will be playing at Dada and The Kessler is having a burlesque show called Moulin Rouge. If that doesn't add enough color to your life, you can catch Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at AT&T Performing Arts Center or Peter Pan at Fair Park.
Bass Drum of Death at Dada
Bass Drum of Death's album latest album, GB City, was an incredibly high-intensity record that didn't hit a wrong note. As live performers, Bass Drum of Death are exactly what you would expect — like a sudden burst of energy with flailing hair and stomping feet.
Art Saveur at the Kessler Theater
Tonight at the Kessler, two burlesque dancers — Iris Le' Mour and Donna Denise — will reenact their favorite scenes from the 2001 Movie, Moulin Rouge, and Donna will be playing Ewan McGregor's character. OK, that's not entirely true. But there will be some burlesque dancing, as well as French food from chef Abrahama Salum.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at AT&T Performing Arts Center
Joseph, the world's first clotheshorse and fashionista (he only wears coats made of dreams), managed to get his brothers all jealous of his awesome outfit. This musical, not to be confused with Jesus Christ Superstar, is one of Andrew Lloyd Webber's non-phantom musicals, starring a kick-ass rainbow coat and sibling envy. Also, it's in Technicolor, which is something that will definitely impress your grandparents, if nothing else.
Peter Pan at Fair Park
Peter Pan is easily in my top 10 list of best musicals featuring a never-aging boy. Tonight, join Wendy Darling, Peter, Captain Hook and all of the lost boys for a story so familiar, you can probably say the lines with them.
