Learn How To Rock 'n' Roll at Bryan Street Tavern.
Happy hump day, everyone! And to those special few out there: Happy birthday!
Speaking of birthdays, did you know that those born on this date share a birthday with the man, the myth, the legend himself? That's right: Today, David Hasselhoff celebrates 61 years young and counting.
We bring this up because The Hoff recently became the dazzling face for the convenience store chain Cumberland Farms. And, as part of their latest ad campaign, a barefoot, white linen-clad Hasselhoff expresses his thirst for love and iced coffee from — where else? — the beach.
“You're supposed to have fun in life, hello!” Hasselhoff told CNN in regards to the campaign.
His best recipe for having said fun? “Wake up, have a cup of coffee, and enjoy the day.”
Sounds easy –maybe almost too easy.
If, like us, you prefer a little more spice to your life, there's plenty of things going on tonight that just might do the trick.
Anamanaguchi and Kitty Pryde at Dada
In order to fund their latest 22-track album and summer tour, 8-bit punk band Anamanaguchi really had to think out of the box. So what better to do than create a Kickstarter campaign? In just 11 hours, they surpassed their goal of $50,000. Eventually, they finished their campaign by earning a whopping $277,399.00. Now, after releasing the video for their new album's title track, “Endless Fantasy” (in which a slice of pizza is attached to a GoPro and sent into space), they've hit the road. Check out what other extraneous things they've spent their money on in this real-life video-game-meets-concert experience. Noted Danny Brown pal Kitty Pryde opens. — Zoe Mattioli
Psychedelic Furs at House of Blues
We remember first falling in love with the P-Furs after that time we heard “Love My Way” playing off in the distance of our dentist's waiting room so many years ago. Tonight, however, we'll rock out with the English post-punk group in-person. Let's relive our Molly Ringwald days together as one tonight. — ZM
OBN IIIs at Bryan Street Tavern
Since releasing their debut seven-inch — No Way To Rock-N-Roll via Super Secret Records — back in 2010, former Dentonite Orville Neeley's Austin-based punk outfit OBN III's have come a long way: His group has released two full-lengths and a half-dozen more singles en route to becoming one of the more promising and familiar names popping out of our state capitol's scene. Tonight, the group brings their “punk rock interpretation of '70s primal urges” to East Dallas. — Nicole Arnold
Widespread Panic at Verizon Theatre
Legendary jam band and archetypal road warriors Widespread Panic hit Grand Prairie tonight after ending a rare one-year hiatus on June 1. Having gotten that long-needed rest, you can expect plenty of energy from the aging outfit this time around. — Stephen Young
The Band of Heathens at Dan's Silverleaf
At first glance, you really wouldn't give this one a second look. On paper and on record, the Band of Heathens appear so boring, if competent, that seeing them live doesn't seem like a pressing need. Thing is this group is quite good in person. On stage, this group morphs into something more closely resembling a jam band. If you like that sort of thing but are so over Widespread, this one might be worth checking out. — SY
