Make It A Good Day With Nappy Roots.
After the crazy weather we've experienced in and around North Texas in the past few days, I think we all could use a little pick-me-up.
To that end, I present the following clip featuring Moore, Oklahoma, resident Barbara Garcia being interviewed in the aftermath of the tornado that ravaged her town. You probably saw the clip making the social media rounds yesterday. But, really, you should watch it. It's about as heartwarming as heartwarming gets when Moore, distraught about being separated from her dog, is surprised -mid-interview by her dog crawling out of the rubble to reunite with her.
Remember, though: Not everyone's as fortunate in being reunited with loved ones as Garcia. So, if you can, maybe text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to the victims in Oklahoma.
Now, onto the rest of your day's schedule.
Eric Nadel Birthday Benefit Concert featuring Ruthie Foster at the Kessler
For the second consecutive year, the Kessler celebrates Texas Rangers radio play-by-play man Eric Nadel's birthday with a fundraiser emceed by the birthday boy himself. Grammy-nominated blueswoman Ruthie Foster headlines the show, which benefits CONTACT, a 24-hour counseling line for anyone in crisis. Singer-songwriter Daphne Willis opens.
Nappy Roots at Prophet Bar
Kentucky sextet Nappy Roots bring their southern-fried hip-hop to the Prophet Barâ€™s big room tonight. Wednesday night Prophet Bar residents The Gritz will be helping them out some, we imagine.
Eyes Set to Kill at Dada
Arizona post-hardcore four-piece Eyes Set to Kill plays Dada ahead of their yet-to-be-named sixth album, which is set to be released later this year. The band has featured as many as six touring members on previous tours, so expect a tighter, more concentrated sound from the newly svelte group this time through.
Cosmonauts at Rubber Gloves
LA Record editor Dan Collins once said the following about the Burger Records outfit: “Their raucous set was like if the Velvet Underground had turned to the MC5 at their Boston Tea Party concert in 1968 and, instead of insulting them, had turned and made love to them — and that was how Lou Reed wound up wearing that dog collar. I couldn't make out a single lyric, but did they really close the set with â€˜Little Honda?” Sounds pretty sweet, I think. Tiger High, The Garden and Further Instructions open.
Sfuzzi Uptownâ€™s 3rd Anniversary Hosted by Colt Knost and Derek Holland
Sfuzzi celebrates the third year in its current location with a party hosted by the Rangers' Derek Holland, plus professional golfer Colt Knost. Head to the Uptown spot for live music from Ricki Derek, sounds from DJ Parker Lawson and perhaps a delightful Harry Carey impersonation to boot. Oh, and maybe some pizza.
