Hear Peter Murphy Roar.
A word of advice before you head out tonight: Be especially selective of the type of bar you're at before you order any drinks with the word “flaming” in their title.
In the wrong hands, things like “Flaming Lamborghini's” are volatile weapons.
Of course, one of the easiest ways to avoid a face full of flames tonight is just to stick to one of the locales we've laid out below. — Cory Graves
Peter Murphy at Granada Theater
Unlike his performance last year at the Granada, Peter Murphy won't be celebrating Bauhaus' 35-year-old catalog at this one. Last month, he released Lion, his 10th solo LP, which stands as a dark, heavy electronic symphony that's as trippy as it is tense. After working with Killing Joke bassist Martin Glover, who handled production duties on the album, Murphy said the process helped his new material feel “like Bowie, Iggy, Frank Sinatra, Elvis all rolled into one.” — CG
Robocop at Sundown
There are two awesome facts about Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop — which turned 27 a couple weeks back — that should make every Dallasite proud: 1) Peter Weller, RoboCop himself, graduated from the University of North Texas, and, even cooler, 2) key locations from the film were shot in Dallas. What better setting to re-watch this one, then, than the rooftop of a building in
futuristic Detroit Dallas? — Chase Whale
Zepparella at Trees
Before you scoff at the proposition of catching an all-female tribute to Zeppelin, just stop and think who is more physically capable of hitting all those high notes that are no longer in Robert Plant's once-impressive range than a female? Fellow tribute act Rise Against the Machine opens. — CG
Warbeast at Gas Monkey Bar & Grill (Free)
Like they do every Wednesday night, the Gas Monkey folks will throw a free, locally-headlined show tonight. This one will be headed up by Warbeast, whose sophomore LP, Destroy, finds the band letting go of all restraints and somehow achieving an even meaner and heavier sound than before. The album showcases a sense of freedom for the band, with songs that go away from traditional and predictable writing patterns for a fully destructive metal sound. Protest and Wes Ford & the Foundry open. — Porttia Portis
Food Truck Festivus at Good Records
While its grandiose name may imply something greater, this is a somewhat simple affair — several food trucks in the Good Records parking lot and live music from The Lash Outs from the AstroTurf stage inside. Easy Slider, Dough Boys Pizza, Vegan Noms and Bobaddiction will supply attendees with food and drink. Oh, and there will be some free beer from Lakewood Brewing Company, too. — Scott Mitchell
Rabbit Hole Brewing Keep-The-Growler night at Craft and Growler
Denton's Rabbit Hole Brewing will taking over the taps at Craft and Growler with four of its brews tonight. Snag one of the freshly-printed RHB growlers and take some home for later. That's what we in the business like to call a win-win. — Ashley Gongora
Mothership, The House Harkonnen and Fogg at Three Links
Three of Dallas' heaviest — not to mention best — rock bands share a bill tonight at Three Links. Bring ear plugs. And maybe consider a poncho, too, just in case House Harkonnen frontman Alex Johnson isn't able to catch his spit in his own mouth this time. — Pete Freedman
