Even in yesterday's beast of a Good Friday post, I somehow still managed to miss two more shows worth putting on your radar.

First up: Maybe you're a fan of The Real World: Cancun? Or maybe you just like that one song by LMFAO? The one that goes "I'm in Miami, bitch!" but has been changed by the local radio stations, oh so cleverly, to say, "I'm in Dallas, bitch!" instead? Maybe? Yeah? Well, if so, you're in luck--the California-based electro-hop duo that was pretty much the centerpiece of an entire Real World episode earlier this year will be in town tonight at the Palladium alongside Dallas' own DJ supremes Play-N-Skillz and the rap-rockin' locals in Big Red Rooster, who've got a new disc to promote.

Not your flavor? Well, this show at the Double Wide could be: Tonight, The House Harkonnen, known for melting faces, known for rocking socks and known for imitating Weezer each year, will stop by the Double Wide and mimic another set of rock gods, Nirvana. Don't know how well they'll be able to pull this off, but, at the very least, it could be a pretty interesting event.

So, there you go. You're all caught up.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
