Never Give Up.

Striking while the iron is hot isn’t just an oft used idiom, it’s just good practical advice when you’re blacksmithing. We know this, because there is video of an actual blacksmith showing why it is so. Not to mention why it’s not good to have too many irons in your fire.

Too many events, however, is never a bad thing. So if hitting the town on a Wednesday night has a nice ring to it – hey, another blacksmith idiom! – we’ve got you covered below. — Cory Graves

Rick Astley at House of Blues
Rick Astley’s back with a brand new invention, a total image makeover, updated sound and a brand new hit single that’s won over the young folks, inexplicably propelling him back to the top of the charts. Crazy, right?! — CG

D.R.A.M. at The Loft
D.R.A.M brings a total party atmosphere to his stage time — something we’ve seen from him before. Sometimes he even gets help from Erykah Badu to perform their collab “WiFi” track. — Breanna Loose

Hudson Falcons 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, excusing brand of toughness that would make The Boss proud. Ten Can Riot and Lethal Dose open. — Roberto Aguilar

Dallas Bicycle Coalition Meeting at Dallas City Hall
I know, I know, there are lots of big, national issues with wide-reaching implications being fought hard over at the moment, but we can’t overlook the stuff in our own backyards, either. Often times, that stuff is the easiest to fix. — CG

Gabriel Iglesias at Majestic Theatre
The morbidly obese stand-up has been called a comic genius by a number of critics who are, no doubt, impressed with his wide array of material which includes jokes about his weight, food, his propensity to wear Hawaiian shirts and overuse the term “fluffy.” — CG

The First Action – Postcard Writing Happy Hour Party at Blue Mesa Grill (Fort Worth)
There’s been a different protest, march and/or vigil somewhere in DFW every single day since Trump’s grabbed power. Today is no different, though in lieu of pounding pavement, Fort Worthians have an opportunity to gather for Blue Mesa’s usual free quesadilla happy hour and write postcards to elected officials. Even if you can’t stay, they’ll be happy to take your postcards and send them off for you just the same. — CG
