Miyavi performs at House of Blues this weekend. And if the Internet videos are anything close to what the Dallas show's going to be like, bring your fangirl-scream-canceling headphones. Miyavi is a J-rock (Japanese rock) artist participating in the Visual Kei movement (which basically means he looks like Gwen Stefani and her harajuku girls had a glam baby). No promises on the music being any good, but it'll definitely be a "What the H just happened here?" YouTube-able performance. At 8 p.m. Saturday, see the visual spectacle that is Miyavi: Neo Tokyo Samurai on 2010 Black World Tour at the House of Blues, 2200 N. Lamar St. Tickets are $22.50 to $45 depending on how close you want to be to his much-better-than-Bret-Michaels' extensions. Call 214-978-BLUE or visit

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
