Eat My Shorts.

This cockatiel watched too much Game of Thrones, and now it can’t stop whistling the show’s iconic theme song. We feel ya little winged buddy. We watched too much GoT, too, and now we’re bummed it’s going to be so many months before we find out who’ll be sitting on the Iron Throne at the end of the shortened seventh season.

In the meantime, there’s all manner of activities to keep yourself occupied/distracted until those damn dragons return. That is until some birdbrain comes along and whistles the theme song, reminding us how damn long we still have to wait. — Cory Graves

Quiet Riot at Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill
Quiet Riot has been kickin’ it in the rock ‘n’ roll scene since the early days of metal back in the ’80s. Though the lineup’s changed a bit since then, it’s still a pretty cool to see ’em live. Opening for the Metal Health band is Rize Above and Hush Money. — Diamond Victoria

The History of the World Part 1 at Alamo Drafthouse (Dallas)
Mel Brooks has a knack for poking fun. He’s parodied everything from Star Wars to spaghetti westerns; and in 1981, he attempted to make fun of human existence entirely. The History of the World Part 1 was the resulting film. Alamo Drafthouse’s upcoming screening is a joint celebration of the film’s 35th anniversary and Brooks’ 90th birthday. — CC

Los Pericos at Trees
That ’80s South American reggae band that was in that one episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations! — CG
