Find Nothin’ At All.
According to financial site WalletHub, which looked at “28 metrics—from a state’s obesity rate to its number of hedonistic Facebook posts—and gathered data from sources like the U.S. Census Bureau, Centers for Disease Control, Gallup-Healthways, and Hedonometer.org,” Texas is only the 29th happiest state overall.
But we think there’s a flaw in that study. For one thing, it doesn’t put enough weight on how happy Dallasites are. And it specifically totally disregards CT readers, who are among the most happy lot, given how easy it is for them to find joyful ways to spend each and every evening of the week.
Death Cab for Cutie at The Bomb Factory
Yesterday marked exactly two years since founding guitarist Chris Walla played his last show with Death Cab, though the band has pressed on. To his credit, his shoes have proved large to fill, with the band adding a pair of touring members to its ranks — keyboard/guitarists Dave Depper and Zac Rae — to cover his parts. Perhaps even more worth your time tonight is the exceptional opening act Bully.

Joining him are Ma$e, Lil Kim, DMX, Faith Evans, Mario Winans, Total, Carl Thomas, 112 and the L.O.X., who have about 50 hit singles between them.
The month-long experiment to decide the fate of that little stretch of Crowdus between Elm and Main Streets continues, as the pop-up park hosts workout sessions from Shark Tank vets City Surf Fitness as well a DJ set/picnic by the Off the Record folks and the bi-monthly meeting of the D.E.E.P. community organization.
The Crawling Dead Pub Crawl in Deep Ellum
This month’s edition of the costumed/themed pub crawl gets zombified all Walking Dead style. It meets up at Wits End at 8:30, and continue to neighborhood spots Brick & Bones, High & Tight and Twilite Lounge after that.
Combichrist at Trees
The Georgia-based Norwegian aggrotech outfit will bring its heavy-as-shit offerings to Dallas, where local audiences will find themselves perpetually wondering whether to mosh or rave.
