Take A Walk On The Wild Side.
When you stay in for too many nights in a row, you start to get a little lonely. And when you get lonely, you start to do creepy things like turn your shower head into a girlfriend that you snuggle and feed noodles.
Don't turn your showerhead into a girlfriend. Go out and have a bit of not-at-all-creepy fun at one of the below events.
We promise, you'll thank us later. That, or your shower head will. — Cory Graves
Motley Crue and Alice Cooper at Gexa Energy Pavilion
For the second time in a week, a pair of '70s and '80s powerhouses will relive their glory days out at Gexa — although, unlike Sunday's KISS and Def Leppard show, tonight's acts will both feature two-armed drummers. At the top of this bill is the clean-and-sober version of Motely Crue, which swears that this one really will be the band's final tour. Shock rock pioneer Alice Cooper opens, making no such promises. — CG
Kitten at Dada
Los Angeles dance pop quartet Kitten is nothing if not heavily influenced by the '80s, having found a prime niche somewhere between the worlds of post-punk and New Wave. It's a mix that works, too, and the outfit's recently released eponymous debut LP is full of sultry vocals and twisted imagery you can dance to. Joining the band on the current tour is post-punk/'90s Brit-pop hybrid Dear Boy. Local piano-popper Jessie Frye opens. — CG
Catalogue at The Where House
Parlez vous danse? In other words: Do you get down to guitar-driven French post-punk? Marseille trio Catalogue is in Texas for a handful of dates this week, another of which will come tomorrow night at Dallas' City Tavern. A word of warning: The band never sets the BPM on its drum machine to less than 160, so don't expect to just stand in place at this one. The Fibs, The Fluorescents and Rocket For Ethiopia open. — CG
Street Gnar, Fungi Girls, Shy Boys, Dripping Wet and Prism Cloud at J&J's Pizza
Psych-punk labelmates Street Gnar (from Kentucky!) and Fungi Girls (from here!) team up for a night-long offering of beer-soaked lo-fi scuzz in this Denton basement. Six bones gets you in. — Pete Freedman
