Get Out of the Dark With Lights at the Granada.
Hey, the election is over! Now what are you going to constantly talk about? Books? Movies? The crippling anxiety you get when you use public restrooms? How emotionally vague your friend Chad is? How weird it is when you realize that you have friends named Chad?
Oh, the possibilities!
Assuming you spent all of last night in full angst mode while watching a news anchor say “battleground states” until your face turned blue, it might be a good idea to go out tonight. Y'know, get some fresh air. Throw away all of those 7-Eleven election cups that you bought.
Luckily for you, there are a few really cool things going on tonight. So, yeah, you can do just that!
Lights at Granada Theater
With the release of 2009's The Listening, Lights officially “made” it: The Canadian songstress' record quickly went gold — pretty amazing since she started as a solo act with just a synthesizer — and she eventually morphed her band into a much more attention-grabbing electronic outfit. Tonight, you can see Lights at the Granada. Don't be in the dark about this one! (GET IT?)
Snow Patrol and High Flying Birds at Verizon Theatre
First, you can get sad with Snow Patrol! Then, after that, you can enjoy Noel Gallagher's band High Flying Birds! Presumably, High Flying Birds is just a front for Noel to play Oasis songs while releasing birds during the opening notes of “Wonderwall.” Cross your fingers and see for yourself if this is true tonight out in Grand Prairie.
All Time Low at House of Blues
Bust out your Vans for this one. Pop a wheelie, too. Maybe get a pretzel at Auntie Anne's. Just do whatever it is that you have to do to prepare yourself for this pop-punk show. Oh, and make sure your hair isn't blocking just one eye! If you're gonna pay for a ticket, you might as well watch this show at full ocular capacity.
Almost Famous at Sundown
Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical classic — and probably the last movie with Kate Hudson in it that you took seriously — will be playing on the roof of Sundown tonight for free. Oh, and if the entire audience at this screening isn't singing “Tiny Dancer” in unison during that one bus scene, you have my permission to throw a fit.
