Make it Rain Diamonds with Marina at the Granada.
Ugh, is it Christmas yet? I don't know about you, but the nonstop greetings and well-wishes are making me want to bury myself in a hole with a novelty spoon and maybe a Harry Potter book (mostly for longevity).
Shout out, then, to all the people in Dallas who don't celebrate Christmas! Hopefully your season is going really well and with as little unwanted family contact as humanly possible.
Speaking of “unwanted contact,” there are some things going on that you may or may not want to go to! May I suggest Marina and the Diamonds? That girl can really sing.
Unsilent Night Dallas
This affair's not exactly the same thing as the other Unsilent Night, which happened a few weeks ago at Fair Park, but it's still for music lovers nonetheless. You bring a boombox or mp3 player and download the same holiday track to listen to — simultaneously — with other music fans. Don't feel like jamming alone? You don't have to here.
Marina and the Diamonds at Granada Theater
Marina and the Diamonds is probably one of the more interesting pop acts of the recent few years. Her recent album, The Family Jewels, is a fun romp through the trivialities of life (see: “Girls”) and also features more serious tracks like “I Am Not a Robot,” too. Either way, she's a fantastic performer and not to be missed by anyone who considers themselves a pop music fan.
Caviar Club Holiday Party
Hey, do you like caviar? Why are you so pretentious? What's wrong with crackers, you rich jerk? Anyways, Ritchie Ritch, The Dram is having specials on some scotch, plus debuting some new cocktails while you dance to some indie music tonight. Me, I'm going to down the most expensive drink I can afford (a Lone Star) and wonder about my life decisions.
Trillwave at Zubar
Come out and see the Los Angeles producer/DJ Mike G spin some tracks while you sip on $1 vodka wells all night. I mean, it's a Wednesday, so you should get trashed. Also, yay for drinks that I can afford!
Adult Crawl Night at Neiman Marcus
Are you barely an adult? Do you miss your infant days? Do you yearn to crawl on all fours, poop yourself and get spoon-fed by airplane-shaped spoons? That's really weird. You should go to a therapist! But, also, maybe you should go to the Adult Night Crawl at Neiman Marcus, where, for a $20 donation to the Food Bank, you can act like the the baby you always knew you were and crawl through the store's window display tunnels.
Free Hugs from Jeremy Hughes
If you can find him, Central Track's own Jeremy Hughes is legally required to hug you today. Not a high five or head nod, but a legitimate, full-on hug, lasting no more than four seconds. Are you lonely or sad? Jeremy's listening.
