Meet the Tempescope, a $200 decoration that mimics weather going on outside. Just think, you can figure out what it's like outdoors without having to get up and look out the window!
Did we mention you have to assemble it yourself? Yeah, it's pretty incredible.
We can't tell you anything as cool as what the current outdoor conditions are, but at least we're good for something. How about we clue you in on what's going on around town? See, we're not totally useless. — Cory Graves
Marina and the Diamonds at South Side Ballroom
Unlike her 2013 stop at The Travis or this spring's VIP party at The Bomb Factory, tonight's Marina and the Diamonds show is not a secret. Case in point? We are telling you about it right now. There's no excuse for missing the Bubblegum Bitch this time around. — CG
Masters of Illusion at Verizon Theatre
As seen on the CW show of the same name, Masters of Illusion puts the world's best magicians in front of live audiences, where they couldn't possibly be relying on camera trickery to aide in their dark arts. — CG
Goodfellas at Alamo Drafthouse
This is the story of Henry Hill, one of the most badass gangsters of all time. As far back as he could remember, he always wanted to be a one. He's pretty much the embodiment of “thug life.” Peep the legendary Copacabana scene in all of its innovative Steadicam glory at this 20th anniversary 4K restoration screening. — H. Drew Blackburn
Caspian at The Prophet Bar
Massachusetts post-rockers Caspian brings its 10-minute-long instrumental jams to Dallas tonight in support of its recently released fourth LP, Dust & Disquiet. Circles Takes The Square and Lavinia open. — CG
Matt Nathanson at Kessler Theater
Massachusetts folk rocker Matt Nathanson recently released the 10th full-length in his two decades-long career. It's called Show Me Your Fangs, and you get a copy of it for free just for attending this one. There's a song on there about Bill Murray, so that's pretty cool. — CG
The Bravest, The Boldest at South Dallas Cultural Center (Free)
