Get Your Kicks Pumped Up For Foster The People At Verizon Theatre.
If we learned anything from Garfield and/or Bob Geldof, it is that we really shouldn't like Mondays. Hey, after playing hard all weekend and spending a long Sunday at the F.O.E., who could blame us for wanting to shoot the whole day down?
Fortunately, there are a couple reasons not to totally hate on this particular Monday, including Foster the People at the Verizon Theater, Cough at La Grange and Fancy Mondays at The Libertine.
Foster the People at Verizon Theatre
A decade ago, the thought of the Columbine High School massacre still made people pretty upset. A few years later, you could make an artistic statement by invoking the name in your anti-gun documentary. These days, pairing lyrics about a school shooting with a nice dance beat will score you one of the biggest pop hits of recent memory.
Fancy Monday at The Libertine
Oh, you fancy? Drag your blazer out from the depths of your closet for The Libertine's Fancy Mondays. Drink discounts are offered up to those in clothes deemed sufficiently fancy.
Open Stage at House of Poets
A fun, new game idea: Gather up some friends, throw $10 into a pot and, after a contest of your choosing, the winner gets the cash and the loser has to do a five-minute routine at this event.
Cough at La Grange
Richmond, Virginia, sludge metal outfit Cough perform songs with such brutal titles as “Crippled Wizard” and “Ritual Abuse.” Their tour rider boasts their sound as “terminally slow and loud as fuck.” In other words: If you decide to head out to La Grange tonight, you know exactly what you'll be getting yourself into.
Grand Prairie AirHogs vs Laradeo Lemurs at QuikTrip Park
QuikTrip Park schedules their promotions by alliteration, and, lucky for us, margarita and Monday both happen to start with the same letter. Also, there will also be some baseball.
