Ladies and Gentlemen, Float In Space With Spiritualized.
Today is a great day to get a few things off your chest. It's OK to make a few potentially embarrassing revelations. We'll still like you just the same, we swear. Even if you're not taking part in that Oral Fixation show, it's still cool to go ahead and admit things like the fact that you know all the words to West Side Story, that you were maybe just too high to remember anything about that last Spiritualized show you went to or that you secretly go to Three Sheets every so often just hoping to see celebrities sleeping on their patio. Trust us, you'll feel a lot better.
Spiritualized at Granada Theater
Somehow, the band famous for “taking drugs to make music to take drugs to” never quite achieved the legacy that some of their contemporaries did, but in '97 the British music mag NME awarded Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space their Album of the Year award over albums like Radiohead's OK Computer and The Verve's Urban Hymns.
Tuesday Night Trash: The Killing of Satan at Texas Theatre
In this tale of Filipino horror/pseudo Christian gore (that's a genre, right?), one man is charged with the seemingly impossible task of assassinating the devil.

He's got magic.
Oral Fixation: An Obsession With True Life Tales at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary
Every now and then, we all get entangled in an embarrassing imbroglio that we'd just as soon erase from our memories. But, sometimes, like that tell-tale heart beating beneath the floor boards, keeping mum will drive you insane. So Oral Fixation show gives people a chance to tell their real-life stories to a live audience. With a theme like this month's “cooking with gas,” you'll hear at least one really good fart tale.
The Big Movie: West Side Story at The Magnolia
Got a rocket in your pocket? Keep coolly cool, boy. You don't want to end up with a disheveled mug shot on TV a la Paul Reubens. On the other hand, watching two street gangs dance-fight for two-and-a-half hours is about as erotic as a root canal.
Half-priced burgers at Three Sheets
If you haven't done so already, check out the half-priced food infographic we posted last week. Pro tip: It makes an awesome computer wallpaper/iPhone background. According to the chart, Three Sheets is serving up half-priced burgers tonight.
