Catch a Wavves.

According to a recent survey, up to 3.8 percent of folks admit to drinking their own urine on a daily basis for health reasons. Urophagia, as scientists like to refer to the practice of piss guzzling — is thought to have many health benefits by folks all over the world, from curing constipation and canker sores to staving off cancer. This is one case when we're not sure it necessarily is better to be safe than sorry.

Still, in the name of all that is urophagia, a publisher in the U.K. recently published a complete guide to urine cocktails. It gives a whole new meaning to the word “pee”na colada, wouldn't you say?

Apparently, the addition of pineapples and coconuts is said to make urine taste not so bad. And while it may be a stretch, we think this list of events might make your weekend not quite so bad. Just think of us as the urine in your cocktail.

You're welcome for that imagery. — Cory Graves

Wavves, Best Coast at Gas Monkey Live
If you lived in beautiful California, you might ask, “Why would you live anywhere else?” Wavves and Best Coast do, but be glad that they are in Dallas sharing their sunglasses and beach hair rock with you. This event, presented by SiriusXM, is pitting the two bands against each other in a Summer is Forever rock show. Other California dream poppers, Cherry Glazrr, open. — Roberto Aguilar

Dallas Burlesque Festival at Cambridge Room
Now in its eighth year, the Dallas Burlesque Festival has the pop of a stick of dynamite. Some of the performers include The Ruby Revue Burlesque Show and Roxi D'Lite, plus over a dozen of DFW burlesque talents. Friday and Saturday will have totally different lineups, so be sure to go to both if you want to get full spectrum of what Dallas burlesque has to offer. Tickets for Friday's show at the Cambridge room start at $22 for general admission. — RA

The Murder City Devils at Granada Theater
The Murder City Devils has nearly been around for 20 years, which is quite the accomplishment in itself. The Seattle-based punk band is pretty straightforward, and there's something about the band's sound that conjures up the scent of whiskey and blood. Austin's Riverboat Gamblers will also be there to get your heart racing. Caskets open the show. —RA

Scarface at Trees
Scarface is a legendary Houston rapper. If you're unfamiliar with him, you've probably heard the song he did with his group Geto Boys, “Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta,” from Office Space. Immortal Soldierz and Judgemental & The Jury open. — Paul Wedding

ConDFW XV at Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre Hotel
The Texas Speculative Fiction Association is presenting ConDFW, a convention specifically focused on literary science fiction. The event has a slew of the typical convention sights including guest panels, art shows and auctions, as well as non-typical programming such as a science fiction spelling bee, all in an effort to celebrate the art of writing genre fiction. — PW

Red Like Heat at Double Wide
Red Like Heat, a trio that germinated in Denton, has a very approachable sound. Its debut release, Rivals, was recorded live which gives it a sound that elevates the emotion behind the lyrics. Opening will be the debut show from Death Stairs, a gothic-no-wave band with song titles that include words like ghost, cult, doom, fear and night. You get the point, they are dark. Little Beards open. — RA

Banda MS at Verizon Theatre
La Banda MS is gigantic. Hugely popular, yes, but with 16 members it can really fill a stage. The banda hails from Mazatlan, Mexico where Sinaloa music is a staple. Sinaloa got its roots in the 1920s, and has always featured a wide assortment of instruments. Think marching band and mariachis. — RA

Breakfast at Tiffany's at Inwood Theatre
There's nothing new one could say about Breakfast At Tiffany's. It's a classic film. From the music to the actors to the costumes it's one of the most iconic movies of all time. “Moon River” alone has been covered a countless amount of times, and it seems like every year someone is copying Audrey Hepburn's black dress and long cigarette look. Take this opportunity to share this film with someone special. It is Valentine's Day soon, right? I think you'll both kinda like it. — RA

Logistics at The Green Elephant
Dubstep and Trap may have come on heavy in the past few years, but drum n' bass will always hail supreme in bass-centered EDM. Whether it's technical, jungle or jazz, DnB is a consistent dance floor thumper. Logistics is coming in from Cambridge, UK (where the best DnB comes from, anyway) and will be spinning a set along with locals Ant Lion and Led. —RA

The Hateful 8 35 mm Road Show at Texas Theatre
Quentin Tarantino's latest film, The Hateful Eight, will be shown in glorious 35mm for four nights at The Texas Theatre. Whether you hated it or loved it, it's agreed that blood and snow look best on 35mm. This special edition will be shown from Feb. 12 to the 14th. There will also be another showing on Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. to ensure that everyone got a taste of The Hateful Eight. — RA

West Side Story at Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center
One of the best stories and musicals of all time is getting a jolt of energy. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will play all of Bernstein and Sondheim's memorable songs live while the re-mastered 1961 film plays in high definition. Conductor Jayce Ogren, one of the best young conductors in the country, will be at the helm. The final matinee show on Sunday starts at 2:30 p.m. Tickets range from $19 to $119. — RA

HoneyHoney at House of Blues
HoneyHoney is a fantastic alternative folk duo made up of guitarist/singer Benjamin Jaffe and Suzanne Santo who also sings and plays violin. Coming from Los Angeles, they have a few interesting connections. First, they were signed by Kiefer Sutherland to his record label Ironworks. Second, they have some pretty famous TV stars like Martin Starr (PartyDown) and Janet Varney (You're The Worst) in their video for “Angel of Death.” They will be playing with singer-songwriter Wade Bowen. — RA

Big Star/Neil Young Tribute at Twilite Lounge (Free)
Hello Dallas! Big Star is one of the best '70s rock bands to come out of Memphis. One of the most underrated, too. It's so good that they had to revive themselves in the '90s, because why the hell not? Coming out of the same era, but north of the border, is everyone's favorite tormented Canadian, Neil Young. Both of these rock behemoths will be paid tribute by Denton's own Daniel Markham, along with the usual suspects Ryan Thomas Becker, Grady Don Sandlin, and Tony Ferraro. It's a tall task for these boys, but I'm sure they can pull it off. — RA

The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra at Kessler Theater
The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is notable in that the New Zealand-based troupe was co-founded by Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie, who still performs with the group from time to time. Unlike regular orchestras, these guys won't play anything by guys with names like Bach or Beethoven, though you'll probably hear covers of old Smiths and Toto tunes. In any case, you've probably never heard the uke used quite like this. — CG

Ringo Deathstarr at Rubber Gloves
Ringo Deathstarr is an indie rock/shoegaze band a la My Bloody Valentine: Noisy, fuzzy guitars and a great female singer. They're a bigger indie band so it's cool that they're playing in Denton at a great venue like Rubber Gloves. Opening are Clear Acid and Rei Clone, two local bands that keep the same atmospheric noise of Ringo Deathstarr. — PW

Love Stinks 2016 w/ Pearl Earl, Party Static, Mink Coats at Dan's Silverleaf
Who says ladies and dudes can't spend Valentine's weekend together in a completely platonic fashion? Come party with three of DFW's most prominent, psychedelic/garage/party bands, all of which are mix-gendered. It's a pretty solid option if you've got nobody to spend Valentine's weekend with. — PW

Mad Hatter's Ball at RBC
RBC is holding a ball to kick off Valentine's Weekend, and it's showcasing some of the best R&B groups around Dallas. Ellen Once Again, Kierra Gray and Friday's Foolery bring soulful sweet singing to silky smooth beats. DJ Edgar Blue will be playing music for the rest of the night. — PW

Rat Rios, Tomkat, Francine Thirteen at The Underpass
These three bands play with dreaminess in their music. The sounds produced provide heavy atmosphere, ranging from comforting to irking, with strong, emotional chords belted by their female singers. Their music is definitely — to put it in the simplest terms — an experience. — PW

Birds of Night, Field Division Live at Redwood Studios
Three bands that either worked with Grammy-winning drummer/producer Mckenzie Smith at his Redwood Studios will perform live sets there for your benefit. Those would be Denton, America's own “pop music for assholes” pushers Birds of Night, Des Moines folkwave duo Field Divison and soulful UK outfit TRU LUV. There'll be a keg of beer at your disposal, too. Just be sure not to spill it on any of the gear. — CG

Fine Food & Frights at Dark Hour Haunted House
For those looking for an alternative to the typical Valentine's weekend standard fare, Dark Hour Haunted House is offering a different thrill. Given only a glowstick for light, Love Is Blind drops you in complete darkness and forces you to find your way out of the haunted house. If you manage to escape, you're treated to a gourmet dinner from Love & War in their dining room. The whole event is $99, but you would probably spend that much on Valentine's Day, anyway. — PW

The Rankin Twins at The Rustic
The Rankin Twins have that same vapid gaze as those twins from The Shining. Here, they'll bring that soulless stare to country music. — PW

Pitbull at WinStar World Casino (Sold Out)
I wonder if people are going to be disappointed when they realize Ne-Yo and Ke$ha aren't there and they have to sit through Pitbull rapping the same thing for an hour? Dat! — PW

Boyz II Men at Choctaw Casino (Sold Out)
Boyz II Men has been battling irrelevancy for nearly the entire 21st century, but seem to be getting by okay from '90s nostalgia — at least well enough to sell out a Native American casino in Oklahoma. –PW

Bart Crow at Rockin' Rodeo
Bart Crow is a country artist who sings songs about love, lost love, and God. If that sounds familiar to you, it's because he's completely unremarkable and blends in with dozens of other country artists. Still, with the help of Pat Green, he's found enough success to warrant playing 150 shows a year, most of which are in his home state. — PW

Atlantis Aquarius at Three Links
Atlantis Aquarius is an all-star assembly of musicians from the DFW area. Each member in the band comes from some sort of honky-tonk/blues background — including members of Rise & Shine, The Texas Gentlemen, The Van Sanchez and Larry g(EE)'s backing band, The Affeections — that melds well with the rest of the bill. The Paychecks also will be a part of the jamboree. This band makes depressed drinking songs that George Jones would think are too much of a downer. Paul Cauthen joins the party. This guy's songwriting capability is on point and worth a listen. — RA

Dallas Comic Con Fan Days at Irving Convention Center
Dallas Comic Con is holding another Fan Days, this time with an opportunity to meet the casts of Arrow and The Flash , along with Brent Spiner and Will Friedle, among others. There's going to be cosplay, panels, an artist alley, as well as a Q&A with the original cast of Dukes of Hazzard, which seems like really inconvenient timing on their part. — PW

Chinese New Year at Crow Collection of Asian Art (Free)
Nobody parties like the Chinese on the Lunar New Year. To celebrate coming into the Year of the Monkey, the Crow Collection will be holding festivities all day long. There will be lion dances, unique performances every hour, calligraphy demos, face painting and fortune telling. That's not all. There will also be food trucks and, of course, fireworks, because everyone loves blowing stuff up. The event is free, so bring everyone you know to ring in the Monkey. — RA

Delbert McClinton, Sunny Sweeney at Granada Theater
Delbert McClinton is a Texas boy with 25 full albums under his belt. He's credited with giving John Lennon harmonica lessons in the '60s, and recording “Weatherman” for the 1992 film Groundhog Day. McClinton is not particularly a family-friendly musician since his blues-rock songs deal mostly with grown folks' problems. Sunny Sweeny, also a Texan, is no stranger to heartache. She's a country musician, duh. Her 2011 album, Concrete, reached No. 7 on Billboard's U.S. Country charts. Not too shabby. — RA

Monster Jam at AT&T Stadium
Remember those commercials you say as a kid advertising those shows with the ridiculously named monster trucks and the over-the-top voice over? “Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!” they'd scream. It turns out they still do those, and they're more over-the-top than ever. Oh, and Gravedigger? Yeah, he's still around, too. — PW

Balletboyz at Winspear Opera House
BalletBoyz are taking performance dance to a new level. Founders Michael Nunn and William Trevitt are changing the modern dance landscape by using traditional style fused with cutting-edge movements. There is a brute force at play with something that requires delicacy. These boyz are as athletic as any football or basketball player. They move just as quick and jump just as high just without the millions of dollars and beer ads. Tickets range from $12 to $135. — RA

CRUSH TX at South Side Ballroom
In Aldous Huxley's book, Brave New World, he describes a synthetic ether-music as the sonic Soma for the masses. CRUSH TX is a bit like that. Seven DJs, mostly from Los Angeles, will pack out the South Side Ballroom with future-disco beats and progressive house. The bill is stuffed like a teddy bear with The Chainsmokers, Slander, Nghtmre and Lost Kings. Get ready to step over couples making out on the dance floor. — RA

Hot Garlic Crab Feed Dallas at Fair Park
It is finally crab season. Grab your bibs and hammers, and head over to Fair Park for a pile of steaming hot garlic Dungeness crabs. It's something that goes on all over the country, and truly cannot be missed. If you're a seafood fan this will be like heaven. If you're timid about cracking open a little sea critter, go with an experienced crab-vet and have them show you the ropes. Bon apétit! — RA

Keegan McInroe (Album Release) at Lola's
Keegan McInroe puts the “chi” in chill. He is an immensely talented guitar player, and has a folk-cowboy quality in his voice. McInroe is celebrating the release of his fourth studio album, Uncouth Cowboys. The wonderful Ginny Mac will be singing and squeezing the accordion along with Charley Crockett to open the show. Tickets are just $5, leaving you plenty to pick up a physical copy of the disc. — RA

Deep Ellum Mimosa Walk
This Valentine's Day edition of Deep Ellum's monthly Mimosa Walk is expected to have a huge turnout. Twenty-five hundred people have already RSVP'd to the event on Facebook. The idea is simple. Buy a commemorative glass for $10 at Kettle Art, fill it with the best weekend cocktail and explore Deep Ellum. You can also buy your glass in advance if you're so inclined. More info on the Facebook event page. — RA

The Royal Comedy Tour at Verizon Theatre
The lineup for this show looks pretty decent. Headlined by one of the most successful female comedians ever, Sommore. She made the Guinness Book of World Records for largest crowd for a female comedian with 50,000 people in Atlanta, Georgia. Joining in the fun are Earthquake, Gary Owen, Tony Rock and Tommy Davidson. — RA

It Happened One Night at Majestic Theatre
It Happened One Night was one of the most successful movies of 1934. It was the first movie to win five Academy awards: It won Best Picture, Best Actor (Clark Gable), Best Actress (Claudette Colbert), Best Director (Frank Capra) and Best Screenplay (Robert Riskin). It's a quirky little film about bratty heiress and the reporter who needs a story. The Betty Boop short, Poor Cindrella, will be screened in 16mm before the main feature. — RA

'80s Prom at Double Wide
Whether you are single or in a relationship, this '80s prom is just what you need to celebrate the day of love. The Rich Girls will be playing Hall & Oats plus other great '80s hits, and The Clinton Years will be doing their '90s thing. DJ Gabriel Mendoza will keep the night going with all the nostalgic tunes. Don't forget baby burgers from Easy Slider and, of course, prom photos! The cover charge is $10 — way less than you paid for your share of the limo to real prom. — RA

The Love Below Tribute at RBC
Think of this as a love letter to Outkast. Every year, Dezi 5 performs The Love Below in honor of Valentine's Day. This year he will be joined by Blue, The Misfit and Slim Gravy, two of Dallas' top hip-hop performers. Picnictyme will be at the controls, and Drip and Cure For Paranoia will also be in mix. Deejay Mike B will be playing some massive tunes to keep your heads bobbin'. — RA

Vice Palace Presents: Sudie, BVTHHOUSE, Kallohonka at Texas Theatre
Vice Palace is, once again, on point with this booking. Sudie is a spiritual experience akin to nocturnal visits from an angel. Bathhøuse punctures a storm cloud and rains down dark synth upon you all. Kallohonka incites a riot inside your skull that manifests itself as a pulsing vein in your temple. This will all take place in one of the best venues in town. Thank you, Vice Palace. — RA

Brain Tease Dallas: Love/Sex/Life at Viva's
Brain Tease Dallas is as informative as it is fun. Each Brain Tease features six experts who speak for 12 minutes each. The subjects are wide ranging, but this installment will go over sex, love and life. The panel includes Jenny Block, a columnist for the Huffington Post and Playboy; Passionata Fair, doctor of biomedical sciences and epidemiologist; Dino Foxx, spoken word poet and queer activist; Coco Lectric, founder of the Austin Burlesque Alliance; Madeline Harris, founder of the consent-culture nonprofit More than “No;” and Louisa Spaventa, educator at Austin Community College. — RA

The Friend Zone at The W
The W Hotel in Dallas is holding a party 33 floors in the sky for all the singles in the area to mingle. There's going to be a DJ and bar, so check it out if you feel like finding someone to spend Valentine's Day with and want to pay for it. — PW

Valerie Kuehne and the Wasps Nests, FORM, End Games, Black Taffy at Black Lodge
Valerie Kuehne is less a musician and more an artist. She performs her music theatrically and in a way of telling a story to the audience. She literally made an entire album about witnessing the apocalypse from the perspective of a pack of rotting cheese, seemingly seriously, too. At the very least, it's interesting. FORM, End Games, and Black Taffy open. — PW

Hudson Falcons, Dog Company at Three Links
New Jersey is full of lots of streets and lots of punks. No wonder street punks like Hudson Falcons are around to dole out a bruising taste of blue-collar rock n' roll. Hudson Falcons have been rockin' out since the late '90s, and are true road warriors. On its current tour, specifically in Texas, the Falcons have hit up the big cities of Austin and Dallas, but they are staying true to their grit by invading McAllen, Victoria, Corpus Christi and Laredo. Now that's toughness that would make The Boss proud. Local punks Dog Company open the show. — RA

Pizza Is My Valentine Party at The Nodding Donkey
The Nodding Donkey is holding a party to forget your singleness by shoving pizza and alcohol into your mouth. You can get a bottle of champagne for $5. Enough said. — PW

Five Course V Day Vegan Dinner at Samson's
V Day stands for Vegan Day at everyone's favorite vegan hotdog joint. Upping their game for the big day, they're coming strong with a full five-course vegan V Day dinner this weekend. — CG

Keep Denton Thrashing at Rubber Gloves
For those of you who knew Nick Thrasher, you would know that he made Denton better. This event honoring the exemplary Oak Street Drafthouse bartender is a fantastic way to honor Little D, as well. You can bar hop from Mulberry Street Cantina at 5 p.m. to Oak St., and then finish the night off at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studio. Doug Burr, Isaac Hoskins, Huss, She Banshee and DJ Yeahdef will thrash your ass off, and then it's back to Oak St. for a night cap. A fitting night out in Denton to honor Thrasher. — RA

Aztec Death feat Death Stairs at Josey Records
Just because a band's name is Aztec Death does not mean their dark. Okay, this time it does. This trio of darkwave shoe-gazers can knock a bass and drone its vocals until you feel like crawling into the fetal position in a shallow pool. Death Stairs is also at Josey Records to echo sounds from the catacombs. Too bad this show isn't during Halloween, otherwise The Crow makeup might be killer. — RA

Intro to Beekeeping at Denton Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center
Beekeeping is more complex than you would think. Well, not that much more complex. You're keeping fucking flying thumbtacks. The event will cover the history, art and science of beekeeping as instructed by Rachel Seida, a master beekeeper, which is apparently a thing. There's also going to be observation of bees and a honey tasting. — PW

Aaron Watson at Billy Bob's
Aaron Watson has been unappreciated a time or two in his life. That doesn't stop him from cranking out country tunes like a hay baler. In fact, he is the first country artist to independently record, release and promote a No. 1 album, The Underdog, on Billboard U.S. Country charts. Quite the accomplishment from this Texas Panhandle native. — RA

Brian Culbertson at McFarlin Auditorium
Brian Culbertson is THE smooth jazz artists you want to see on Valentine's Day. He got his chops in Chicago inspired by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower Of Power and Chick Corea. He's won numerous awards throughout his career, released 14 albums and could be considered a jingle guru for his work with Gatorade, McDonald's and Sears to name a few. But, listening to his music you can feel your hips starting to groove and your heart looking for love. Eric Darius and Avery Sunshine will also be joining the amorous night. — RA

James McMurtry at Kessler Theater
Singer-songwriter James McMurtry, son of legendary novelist Larry McMurtry, has been called a Tex-ified Bob Dylan. Some even loftier praise comes from The Hold Steady's Craig Finn, who took it upon himself to review McMurtry's latest release, Complicated Game LP. Writes Finn: “The music is always elegant here; it's never overly maudlin, never veers into Americana clichés. McMurtry is consistently honest and the songs' characters are dignified and nuanced. He never writes down to these people or judges their situations. That's why Complicated Game is another fantastic collection of songs by one of America's best songwriters.” Well put. James' son Curtis opens. — CG

Marty Friedman at Trees
A Jewish heavy-metal guitarist walks into a bar in Tokyo and says, “Hi, I'm Marty Friedman.” That's not a joke. In fact, Friedman is one of the coolest metal guitarists ever having coming from Megadeth and Cacophony. He's been living in Tokyo as a television personality on rock shows, quiz shows and even a wrestling match. He'll be at Trees showing you why he's such a big star overseas, and he might shred you to a mega death. Neil Swanson and The Adam Nañez Band open. — RA

Matt the Electrician at The Live Oak
There have been a lot of folk musicians to come out of Austin, but Matt The Electrician is one of the hardest working ones in number of ways. In the beginning stages of his career, he would toil away all day as an electrician, and then burn the other side of the candle playing open mics and small venues at night. That kind of dedication shows up in his music. He puts his heart and soul into his songs, his voice is finely tuned and his output is prolific. Currently, he is collaborating with numerous artists to release a string of 7-inch singles. The sweet voice of Raina Rose will get the night started. — RA

Taco and Beer Pairing at 903 Brewers
It's tacos and beer being paired together. What more could you really ask for? — PW

Jeff Parrott at The MAC
The name of Jeff Parrott's exhibition is genius: “The Universe Is a Room We All Live In and I Am a Modern Shaman and We Are All Aliens.” And, you know what, he's probably right. More and more, in the modern world, the unexplained has become explainable and the outlandish is right up everybody's alley. Parrott will be opening up his studio for patrons to experience his abstract paintings where “microscopic organisms manifest as obscure shapes, creatures morph, and contours, colors, textures and shapes evolve on the canvas,” according to the Facebook event page. The opening and closing events will include audio and video performances from Parrott as well. View by appointment through Feb 20. — RA

Ricki Derek's Valentine's Day Double Feature at Granada Theater
If tradition is your thing, take your lover over to Ricki Derek's performance of Rat Pack-era songs, which will be followed by a screening of Casablanca. It doesn't get much classier than that, folks. Plus, Ricki's been doing his V-Day thing for almost as long as you've been together. That said, he's switching things up this time around: As opposed to the now-closed Lakewood Theater, where it was held for many years, you'll be taking in his sweet and sultry songs at the Granada this time. Unlike your romance, not everything lasts forever, it seems. — Allie Williamson

Lita Ford at The Rail Club
Lita Ford?! Yes, Lita Ford. The most bad-ass female guitarist of her time. You'd be remiss not to spend Valentine's Night with the all-mighty Lita Ford. Ford will be joined by London's Dungeon, Blackout, Little Green Men and Rize Above. Head bang at the show, and bang the headboards afterward. — RA

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 35mm at Texas Theatre
Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind is honestly the best work of both director Michel Gondry and writer Charlie Kaufman. It is depressingly romantic, laughable to the point of a grimace and lucidly truthful. The plot is simple, Joel (Jim Carey) wants his memory erased of his ex-girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet). The movie, however, is complicated by virtue of it's storytelling. Basically, everything happens in reverse. The cinematography is extremely powerful as is the score by Jon Brion, who has produced some greats like Fiona Apple, Spoon and Kanye West. The perfect un-Valentine's Day movie. — RA

Valentine's Movie Date Night at The Foundry (Free)
The Foundry is hosting a double feature of some questionably romantic movies for Valentine's night. Both movies, Sixteen Candles and True Romance, have happy endings, but it takes a bunch of strife to get there. Bring a date with whom your bond is as strong as Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette's and pay $30 for two great movies, reserved seats, a bottle of champagne, cake and chocolate-covered strawberries. Now, isn't that cute? — RA

HeartByrne at House of Blues
This ain't no party. It ain't no disco. It is an Austin-based Talking Heads tribute, though. This must be the place. — CG

Love is Dead: A Valentine's Day Bash at The Church
Love is not dead. It is risen from the crushed crimson velvet bed of Dracula's lair, and descended upon Dallas. This Valentine's Bash is headlined by the legendary goth/industrial deejay, DJ Amanda Jones. She has been doing her thing for over 20 years, and seeks to claim more victims on The Church dance floor. Local talent, DJ Virus, will be spinning some hard electro-death-step in the main room. Best part? Free champagne and cupcakes. —RA

SINGLE! at Single Wide
Down with love! Down with cuddles, kisses and pet names! This anti-Valentine's party is for all the single ladies and gents. Share your sorrow with fellow loners, and, who knows, maybe you'll end up on the dark side once the night is over. Or, maybe, just return back home to your cats. DJ Joey Scandalous will be playing anti-love songs all night. — RA

August Alsina at Gas Monkey Live
August Alsina is super young and super hot. He's been through some serious hardships, and has risen above all of it. Now, he does whatever he wants. Hailing from New Orleans and then Houston, he has found recent success by winning 2014's BET Best New Artist award. His track “I Luv This Shit” featuring Trinidad James is at 34 million views after exactly three years on YouTube this upcoming Feb. 14. Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta star, K. Michelle opens the show. — RA

Dallas Blues Festival at Verizon Theatre
Headlining this year's Dallas Blues Festival is a '70s R&B legend, Lattimore. His soulful love songs are in the vein of Isaac Hayes, The Dells and The Persuaders. Sir Charles Jones on the other hand is a 21st century player, yet the feeling remains the same from the days of Latimore. The rest of the performances include Theodis Ealey, TK Soul, Shirley Brown, Bobby Rush and Cupid. Wait, Cupid? Yes, the creators of the Cupid shuffle will going to the right, to the right. You get the point. — RA

MattyB at Majestic Theatre (Sold Out)
What a treat that Dallas gets to host the distinguished musical talent of MattyB on the best day of the year, Valentine's Day! He's simply on another level. Everybody else is in 6th grade, this boy is a freshman. But, really, I think he's in 6th grade. The concert starts at 3 p.m., but I'm sure it will go long into the late afternoon. Word is the concert is sold out. Too bad, so sad. —< em>RA

Risk! at The Prophet Bar
RISK! is a seven-year-old podcast that involves storytelling and secrets. Basically, celebrities and other creatives reveal their deepest, darkest secrets to an audience of millions. RISK! also incorporates live shows into the mix, which is what will be going on at The Prophet Bar. The stories are funny, unbelievable and often times emotional. It really just seems like a session with the shrink. We all need a little release. — RA

Enforcer, Warbringer at Trees
Never has so much hair and so much metal fit into a single bill. Unless, of course, this were the early '80s. Headlining is Enforcer that makes their name on screeching vocals. Next is Warbinger, that is a bit more punk with their approach to heavy metal. This is heavy metal being mentioned, not butt-rock. Cauldron is probably the best dressed and have the coolest mustaches. Opening the show is Exmortus that is the closest to death-metal out of the bill. You will need Icy Hot for your neck afterward, just fair warning. — RA

Cupcakes and Beer Pairing at LUCK
Is it possible to drool yourself into a coma? Give it a try. Here is the list of cupcakes, from Chef Annie West, and beers to be paired for this Valentine's soiree at Luck: red velvet with cream cheese paired with Bitter Sisters Knockout Red Ale, espresso mocha lava cake with peanut butter icing paired with Community Ascension Vanilla Coffee Porter, red wine and chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream paired with Cedar Creek Fisticuffs Barleywine, lemon curd filled Italian cream cake with vanilla buttercream paired with The Collective “Belwegain” Belgian Double. — RA

Denton For Bernie Rally at Greater Denton Arts Council
People across America have been feeling the Bern, and it's no surprise that Denton will be holding its own rally to honor presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. He recently won the popular vote in the New Hampshire primaries, but missed out on delegates that were snatched up by Secretary Hillary Clinton. More of the reason for Sanders supporters to rally. The event will be headlined by common-sense populist Jim Hightower — famous for his Hightower Report that highlights corporate scum — and the sensational local musician Jessie Frye. Let's do this togethah! — RA
