Kickstart Your Heart.
Taking a page out of Japan's fast food playbook, American Burger Kings have begun rolling out Black Whoppers for Halloween. Unlike Japan's version, which is dyed with squid ink, America's black-bunned burger uses food dyes to achieve the effect.
The result? Lots and lots of neon green poop. Rather than turning people off, though, this fact has caused folks to actually seek out the burgers, both out of curiosity and because, hey, waiting around to poop green is, well, something to do.
Fortunately, for people in Dallas, there's a lot more exciting happenings this evening than sitting around and waiting to poop. — Cory Graves
Motley Crue at American Airlines Center
At the top of this bill is the clean-and-sober version of Motely Crue, which swears that this one really will be the band's final tour. Just like he did at the band's most recent Dallas farewell show back in the summer of 2014, shock rock pioneer Alice Cooper opens. — CG
Walk the Moon at South Side Ballroom
The Cincinnati indie pop-rockers Walk The Moon took their name from a Police song, but sound more like indie pop-rockers from Cincinnati. Still, their “Anna Sun” single like, blew up the Alternative charts once upon a time. That song's about a crumbling household! These days, the band's resurged, too, headlining the quite large South Side Ballroom for the second time this year, thanks to a little ACL spillover action. — Chelsea Upton
Dear Hunter at Gas Monkey Bar N' Grill
These melodious indie rockers from Rhode Island — not to be confused with Bradford Cox's Deehunter from Atlanta — will be hitting up Gas Monkey tonight. Chon and Gates open. — Erika Lambreton
Twiztid at The Rail Club
Juggalos will no doubt show up in droves tonight to see Insane Clown Posse's little brother band, fellow Detroit horrorcore duo Twiztid. We can't promise you'll walk away from this one sticky and dripping with Faygo, but if trends hold up, there will be plenty of “Fa-mo-lee” chants at this one. — Chase Whale
International Pop Opening Celebration! at Dallas Museum of Art
This Sunday, the DMA opens its new “International Pop” exhibition, which focuses on the rise of pop art in the '60s and '70s. Unlike most pop art exhibitions, this one doesn't really center around what Warhol or what was happening in New York or London at the time. Rather works from Eduardo Costa, Jann Haworth, Ushio Shinohara and other greats from France, South America, Japan and Germany will be the focus here. You can get an early look at the collection at this pop-themed party, where pop music and pop-tini cocktails will abound. — CG
Swamp Thing at Alamo Drafthouse
Throw a bag of rock candy and you'll likely hit a horror flick being screened somewhere in DFW at any given time this October. Tonight's no different, with Wes Craven's campy DC Comics entry, 1981's Swamp Thing, which screens tonight at Alamo. — CG
Royal Blood at House of Blues
In case you're not entirely burnt out on blues-based, two-piece garage bands, we'll offer up British duo Royal Blood. In the group's defense, its own material is a bit harder edged, fuller sounding, a Muse-leaning than most of the other White Stripes/Black Keys disciples. — CG
Phutureprimitive at Three Links
After spending 20 years as a DJ, Bay Area-born and current Oregan-based electronic music maker Phutureprimitive has found a way to use the “dripping wet love drops of nasty mind melting sonic bliss” he crafts to make city-set dive bars somehow feel like Burning Man. — CG
Sgt Peppers Lonely Bluegrass Band at State Fair of Texas
Yup, it's pretty much exactly what it sounds like it's going to be. Still, these guys deserve some credit for hanging around about four times longer than the Beatles ever did. That's got to count for something. Sans dirt tornados. Bass Physics and DJ Mikey Rodge open. — CG
