Mouth Off with Sandra Bernhard.

Let's just cut to the chase here for a second: There are a lot of awesome things to do tonight should you happen to live in North Texas and enjoy going out on Wednesday nights.

The reason for today's hasty intro? There are more pressing matters at hand, namely the impending demise of McDonald's' Dollar Menu in two weeks time. While it won't be disappearing completely, the revamped “Dollar Menu & More” will introduce a tiered system that will allow the chain to raise prices on several menu items — much to the dismay of Dollar Menunaires everywhere.

With that in mind, we think your 3 a.m., post-bar food stop choice tonight should be quite clear.

Danny Church Band at Renfield's Corner
As our pals at DC9 at Night recently revealed, music will once again return to this Routh Street bar for a Jameson-sponsored, seven-week fall local music series, which kicks off tonight with a performance from Dallas electrosoul outfit the Danny Church Band. It's good news for folks from both sides of Central Expressway, as Renfield's is one of the few spots in Uptown playing host to live music on weeknights and, from our experience, one of the few places in that neighborhood where East Dallasites don't fear to tread — well, during the workweek anyway. — Cory Graves

Hinder and Candlebox at South Side Music Hall
Hey, it's the guy's behind “Lips of an Angel” sharing a bill with the guys behind “Far Behind.” Here's betting that one of these bands is super stoked about this pairing. Guess which? C'mon, it'll be fun. The guessing game, I mean. No promises on the show. — Pete Freedman

Isaac Hoskins at Twilite Lounge
Sure, Hoskins is a local, but the Denton-based singer-songwriter doesn't necessarily make it out to Dallas proper as often as one might imagine. Enjoy a weeknight solo offering from the soulful, Adam Duritz-channeling crooner at one of the most laid back booze joints in town. — CG

Sandra Bernhard at Kessler Theater
Oft-outspoken comedienne, feminist and LGBT icon Bernhard brings her new one-woman show Sandyland to Dallas this evening. Expect plenty of personal stories, road-tested jokes and cabaret-style numbers belted by Bernhard and her Flawless Zircons backing band at this one. — CG

Vinyl Preservation Society at Crown and Harp
The B.Y.O. vinyl club meets on Lower Greenville once again for its yearly Halloween-inspired gathering. If you plan on bringing some wax to this one, though, make sure it fits in with the night's “Put On Your Makeup” and/or “All Over the Place” themes. — CG

Howl, Lord Dying at Double Wide
Reviews of Howl's latest Relapse Records LP are actually pretty humorous in the fact that most every one of them seems to equate listening to the band's record to different hyperbolic acts of violence. If getting punched repeatedly in the gut until you fall into an active volcano sounds like your ideal way to spend the night, then this bill — also featuring the band's sludgy, Mastadon-esque label mates Lord Dying — should be just the ticket. — CG

Merrily We Roll Along at NorthPark Center
Unlike other critically-lauded musicals on Stephen Sondheim's resume, such as Sweeny Todd, Into the Woods, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, 1981's Merrily We Roll Along had neither a long Broadway run — just 17 performances — nor the Hollywood treatment. Fortunately, the show's recent London run has been much more well-received, even earning the destinction of being filmed for worldwide simulcast. Well, tonight only. — CG
