Face the Firing Squad.
TV weather guys and gals always seem to act like they’re the bigshots of the newsroom. So it’s fun every now and then to watch blooper reels of them fucking up live on air.
It’s fun to be able to laugh a little bit!
And now for our one-day forecast, where we predict much merriment will be had at each of the following places. It’s all rainbows and unicorns ahead.
Willie Nelson at Granada Theater (Sold Out)
The greatest Texas musician of them all performs around these parts all the time, but never in a venue quite this small. Hence why tickets sold out so quickly, and why folks are spending up to $500 on StubHub on the secondary market.
Power Trip at RBC
Nearly four years after its debut on Southern Lord, the Dallas thrash metal crossover act will finally release its sophomore effort on February 22. But enthusiasm for the raucous outfit hasn’t really waned, and the band recently wrapped a tour with Napalm Death and The Black Dahlia Murder. Another thing that’s never waned? The band’s immediacy, which is more than apparent on its first new single in quite some time, “Firing Squad.” It’s a track NPR described as possessing “a certain monolithic quality Lemmy would admire: a massive rawness and a sludgy, heavy hopelessness that thrashes with punk immediacy and metal intricacy…it’s a track preparing for war.” Face the firing squad in Deep Ellum tonight.
North Texas Roller Derby Open House at Lone Star Indoor Sports and Events Center
Always thought you’d be good at derby? Hit this open house to meet girls currently in training and see if you’ve got what it takes. No skating experience even required.
Magnolia at Alamo Drafthouse (Cedars)
And so sayeth the lord, “And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs.” And director Paul Thomas Anderson and Tom Cruise playing the role of a horndog hath made it so.
