It's an even-numbered year, which means that 311 will once again celebrate this March 11th, aka 311 Day, with an epic two-night concert in New Orleans that will see the band will perform more than 80 songs. Depending on what time it is when you're reading this, you can probably still make one or both shows.

If not, no worries. There's plenty of places to get stoned and do stuff around North Texas the next few days, too. And if we've learned anything from our alt rap-rock heroes it's not to stay home this time. You don't have to, you don't want to. So don't stay home this time, no, don't say no. — Cory Graves

Future at South Side Ballroom (Sold Out)
This is pretty much the hip-hop show to be at this weekend. Future has been blowing up a lot lately, He was on SNL this past weekend, has released two albums in the past two years and has been collaborating with everyone from Kanye West to Drake to the Weeknd.

35 Denton
Really, this is the best you could do, Denton? Oaktopia was at least able to get Edward Sharpe and Minus the Bear to headline their fest this year — no offense to Charles Bradley, Biz Markie or Tacocat. Kinda. Other than that, the majority of the bands are from Denton or Dallas, bands I can pretty much see at least a few times a year anyway without having to front $65. But if you are planning on heading here at any point this weekend, here some facts about 35 Denton to know. — PW

Texas Furry Convention 2016 at InterContinental Dallas
The Dallas Regional Anthropomorphic Meeting Association (D.R.A.M.A.) is holding a convention for furries. For those unfamiliar, they're people that like to dress up like animals. Basically, they really liked those Disney cartoons from the late '80s/early '90s. Other than that, it's not much different from a normal comic book convention — there's cosplaying and artist alleys and dancing and videogame rooms. It's just a lot more, um, fetishized. — PW

Davis' style is more of a contemporary, easy listening as compared to James, but her voice is so angelic and soothing it's incredibly captivating. — RA

Oliver Heldens at The Bomb Factory

The Room with Tommy Wiseau at Inwood Theatre
Every final Friday of the month, the Inwood Theatre in Highland Park presents The Room, a film that's widely considered to be one of the worst (if not straight up the worst) movie ever made. The theater allows for audience participation during the film's showing, which usually means that a bunch of patrons cackle and yelling at the film and throwing objects at the screen when it's shown. It's a pretty good time. This upcoming weekend, however, should be an even grander time. Not only will the Inwood be playing the film at midnight, but they'll also be welcoming in a special guest.

Mike & the Moonpies at The Rustic
Austin's Mike & The Moonpies like to refer to their sound as “outlaw country,” but it's far less dangerous than it sounds.

It's a sad state of affairs, indeed. — CG

Open Carry Guitar Rally III: Bowie On The Bridge at Continental Avenue Bridge
You know those assholes that walk around outside with assault rifles trying to make a point that it should be OK to carry around automatic weapons wherever they want?

Then you have an indie-folk band in Moonlight Native that has mastered the camping-under-the-stars sound. And then there's Coolzey, a Midwest rapper who is a bit corny but only the best sense of the word. You know, that early '90s kind of corny like De La Soul or L.L. Cool J? Either way, this will be a fun, if rather diverse, show. — RA

Metalachi at Trees
Metalachi is not your typical mariachi band. Metalachi, as its name implies, is a mariachi band that covers metal songs — the first of such group of its kind, or so the band's press materials insinuate. They do more than just that, of course. Over the course of one of their numerous previous stops through town in the past year or so, the band sprinkled in its takes on such traditional mariachi standards as “Volver Volver,” “Mariachi Loco” and “La Bamba” among its expected covers of Guns N' Roses' “Sweet Child O' Mine” and Bon Jovi's “Livin' on a Prayer.” It was an infectious offering, for sure. As always, Mad Mexicans opens. — Erika Lambreton

Aaron Gonzalez + Sarah Ruth = Love4ever, Haunter, Sleep Colony at Pariah Arts
Aaron Gonzales and Sarah Ruth are coming together to create an emphasis on vocal intimacy, which sounds like something you should sit cross-legged on the floor to enjoy.

Sleep Colony is a solo project from Sean Connolly who's played music forever from the East Coast to Texas. Sleep Colony sounds like a corrupted file of music from Splatterhouse ran through a filter of crushed rocks and iron bars reconfigured by aliens. — RA

Mind Spiders (Album Release) at Double Wide
