Check Your Levels with Avicii at Lights All Night.
It's the last weekend of the year!
Who would have thought we'd make it to this point? I mean, 2012 has been a pretty weird year. We've had a Presidential election, faux apocalyptic freakouts, and some jerk even coined the phrase “Tumblr rap.”
If 2012 was good to you, now's the time to look back fondly on it. If it was terrible (shout out to my sadbros!), you can comfort yourself with the knowledge that it's almost over.
Who knows? 2013 might be the year your dreams come true! Probably not, though.
Show Me the Munny at Strangeways
If you're into designer toys (and, let's be real, who isn't), you're probably familiar with Atama, the local store that slings these things up at Mockingbird Station. Atama is turning two years old today, and in celebration they're having a party with prizes, a photo booth and music by DJ Sober.
Japanther at Double Wide
If you haven't seen Japanther before, you definitely don't want to miss this opportunity. The show will likely sell out, so you don't want to pass on the chance to get elbowed in the face by some raging dude. And I say that with 100 percent sincerity, because if you haven't been elbowed in the face, you haven't really lived.
Green Velvet at It'll Do
Green Velvet has been around for a while, first getting public praise in the early '90s for his club hits. That's probably why the venue will be packed tonight, because after a long streak of techno and house hits, Green Velvet really knows how to get people to dance.
Robert Earl Keen at House of Blues
Lifelong Texan and acclaimed country music guitarist Robert Earl Keen will be at the House of Blues tonight, returning after what is sure to have been one of his extensive tours.
Repo the Genetic Opera and Rocky Horror Double Feature at Lakewood Theater
Billed as a post-apocalyptic event (I must have slept through the apocalypse), this double-feature showcases two cult classics, Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Superfans can buy a prop pack for four bucks.
Self Defense for Runners at Krav Maga DFW East
I guess runners need to be defended, which is kind of surprising since you would think that they could just, y'know, run away.
The Phuss at Sundown
The Fort Worth garage rockers will be performing for free.
Playdough and DJ Sean P, Plain Jane Francis, Gallerycat, and The Tony Q Project at Club Dada
For a $10 cover, pack your night with local hip-hop talent, including Playdough and DJ Sean P, Plain Jane Francis, Gallerycat and the Tony Q Project.
The Warm up Party at It'll Do
It's not New Years yet, but you can still warm up for it with DJ Red Eye and DJ Sober. And if you wear a track suit, you get in for free. Who said that '90s-style windbreaker was a bad idea!
Night One of Lights All Night at Fair Park
It's going to be cold out, but maybe you can warm yourself up with the power of music and the shared body heat of strangers. For the first evening of Lights All Night, Tiesto and Flux Pavilion headline.
Lucy Loves Schroeder Reunion Show at Double Wide
Seven years ago, this Texas punk group Lucy Loves Schroeder called it quits. But, this weekend, they're back for a special reunion show tonight at the Double Wide.
Night Two of Lights All Night
Welp, it looks like we're leaving the lights on again. This time it's for Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, A-Trak and many more.
Rock n Roll Rummage Sale at Lola's
The coolest kind of rummage sale is music-related, and what better way to spend a Sunday than sifting through other peoples old records and band T-shirts?
