Chillwave Out With Toro Y Moi.
You went pretty hard last weekend, didn't you? We don't blame you, there was a lot going on.
The good news is that, this weekend, your nights can be a little more laid back. Hell, the concerts in town this weekend were pretty much designed so you could take things easy. Plus, the Super Bowl is a nice excuse to not get off the couch on Sunday.
So sit back and relax. Then get right back up and embrace all that's going on.
Toro Y Moi at Trees
Chill-wave enthusiasts/Urban Outfitters employees will delighted to know that Toro y Moi will be performing a sold-out show tonight in Dallas. (The Urban employees, we should note, are mostly just happy that everyone is at the concert instead of shopping.)
What Made Milwaukee Famous Performance at Good Records
Before playing Dada later this evening, What Made Milwaukee Famous will perform on Good's AstroTurf. Perhaps they'll also share some other insights during this set, such as “What Made My Socks Turn Pink In The Wash” or “What Made Me Sleep Through My Alarm Clock This Morning.”
Grupo Fantasma at Live Oak Music Hall
Highly praised Latin 10-piece Grupo Fantasma plans on hauling in all of their instruments (there are a lot) tonight just to make you dance.
The Residents at Kessler Theater
The Residents are touring in celebration of their 40th year of being an anonymous band, and they'll be stopping by the Kessler tonight. You should stop by, too. Maybe for their impressive video art? Maybe for their innovative, experimental sounds? Your pick.
IAMDYNAMITE at Good Records
Didn't learn what made Milwaukee famous on Friday night? Maybe IAMDYNAMITE knows? With a name like that, you've got to figure they at least think they do.
Oliver's Army at Sundown at Granada
Oliver's Army happens to be an Elvis Costello cover band. And you just happen to love Elvis Costello. And this show is free. Things are looking up for you!
The Residents at The Kessler
A second chance to see The Residents.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Texas Theater
“Wait, I get to see this movie in 35mm and there is a glam rock dance party afterwards and there is a drag performance at intermission during the movie for only $12?!”
“Sir, do you want a ticket or not?”
Harlem Globetrotters at AAC
As much as you want to live your fantasies of solving mysteries with the Globetrotters, sadly only Scooby Doo and the gang can do that. While you wait for Don Knotts and Phyllis Diller to call you to solve the mystery of the haunted light house, why don't you check out the Harlem Globetrotters at the ACC and see what else makes them so world famous?
Mike Epps at Verizon Theater
Comedian Mike Epps decided that he would come by Dallas tonight and make everyone laugh. Don't turn down his kindness.
Sum 41 at Trees
Come on, you know you're curious.
Centro-matic and Air Review at Live Oak Music Hall
As you may remember, Air Review just put out a new album. If you're a fan, check out those new songs live. If that's not enough, then Centro-matic will make sure your night feels whole.
Skeleton Coast, Fungi Girls, Oil Boom and DJ Ronnie Heart at The Boiled Owl
The Fort's kinda killing it this weekend, huh? This bill, celebrating the one-year anniversary of Boiled Owl, which has quickly established itself as a favored watering hole out in Cowtown, features pretty much all of the best Fort Worth bands going these days. Expect a crowded show.
Cozy Hawks at Rubber Gloves
Denton power-poppers Cozy Hawks came from pretty much nowhere last year to become one of the more endearing bands in the region. Then they disappeared. On this bill, they return, with the promise of new material to be debuted, too.
The Super Browls at Dan's Silverleaf
So, instead of watching whatever superstar is performing at halftime of the Super Bowl (sorry, Beyonce), you can go to Dan's Silverleaf and watch The Super Browls drunkenly cover arena rock songs instead. Problem solved.
Stuperbowl Sunday Alley Cat-6 Bike Race at Public Trust
The Superbowl? Completely overrated. Instead, spend some time with family and friends. Come for the tiny bicycle race, stay because you hate football.
Chelsea Wolfe at House of Blues
Between Chelsea Wolfe's singing and Toro Y Moi's beats this weekend, you're going to feel pretty relaxed, you guys.
Super Bowl Watching Party at Bryan Street Tavern
Our friends at Bryan Street have a whole bunch of TVs, so it makes sense that they're throwing a watching party for the “Big Game.” They'll have team-inspired shot specials and pitcher deals, too. But here's the real cool thing: They'll also be using mobile technology to give drink specials to those who turn out based off which team a given patron is rooting for and how well that team is doing at a given point in the game. Should be interesting.
