Talk The Talk.
Recently, Pizza Hut unveiled a new pizza box that, if folded the right way, converts into a home movie projector for your smartphone. That's right: Dinner and a movie now comes in one convenient, hand-delivered package.
Well, depending on your location. At the moment, the projector box option is only available in the chain's Hong Kong stores.
Hey, it's not all bad! Think of it this way: Instead of being tempted to never leave the house again, there's nothing holding you back from going out and otherwise finding something cool to do about town this evening.
Lucky you, then, that we've created this cool list of things to do to help you get started. — Evan Henry
July Talk at Three Links
Formed in 2012, and armed with but a single self-titled LP on Island Records, Canadian blues-rock outfit, July Talk continues to try and build a name for itself in the U.S., this time as part of headlining performance at Three Links in Deep Ellum. Purple and PVC Street Gang kick things off. — EH
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. — Stephen Young
American Beauty at Sundown (Free)
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag blowing in the wind? Or drinking half-priced whiskey and watching outdoor movies on weeknights? That's just a little bit of what's goes on at Sundown most every Wednesday. Check out American Beauty, the 1999 romance drama starring Kevin Spacey that won five Oscars, on the bar's patio screen this week, for free! — Diamond Victoria
Trails and Ways at Dada
Oakland indie quartet Trails and Ways just released its debut full-length, and already the band's amassed 18,000-plus “likes” on Facebook. Considering the hype these guys are square in the midst of, this could very likely be your last opportunity to see them at a space this capacity — y'know, before the whole world takes notice and they become even your mom's favorite band. — EH
Queen Sing-Along at Alamo Drafthouse
Face it, when “Bohemian Rhapsody” comes on, it's impossible not to immediately join in singing with Freddie and the gang. Alamo Drafthouse knows as much, which is why they are having a Queen sing-a-long tonight, complete with music videos and film montages. But tonight, it'll be you that makes the rockin' world go 'round. — DV
