Should the kids in the clubs be worried about the potential rise of N-Bomb?

For anyone with even a minor amount of tact, much less a grasp of what it means to be a respectable human being in 2015, an "N-Bomb" is something to be avoided. Needless to say, it can cause an explosion of sorts in certain social settings. Now it seems as though we should get acquainted with another type of N-Bomb. An increasingly popular drug known as N-Bomb (or smiles or 2CI-NBOMe) is a form of synthetic LSD, which comes in the form of a powder, tiny paper or liquid. It's also increasingly relevant to Dallas nightlife thanks to a series of overdoses in the past couple years, including another one that happened just last month.

His dress is timeless, but Larry g(EE)'s video tastes are strictly turn of the millennium
For people of a certain age -- namely millennials -- MTV's Total Request Live was a fixture of their after-school routine. The Carson Daly-hosted video countdown show was the biggest musical tastemaker for teens and twentysomethings of the era, helping build the careers of the 2000s biggest pop stars, like Destiny's Child, Christina Aguilera and the ubiquitous boy bands of the time. Now, thanks to local R&B singer Larry g(EE), we can bask in the glory of TRL nostalgia this Thursday night at Three Links.

Will you remember me?

People of a certain age, the millennial bunch, will always remember Sarah McLachlan for her contribution to Myspace. She was the one who made "Angel," the sad-as-shit song that played during all of the videos about animal abuse. Well, she's at Winstar World Casino this weekend, which means you can relive that experience. Also playing shows this week, Key!, a charismatic rapper from Atlanta; the one with that "bass," Meghan Trainor; the band with the macabre name, A Place to Bury Strangers; and much more.

All about that zzzz

Have no fear, Dallas; as soon as this dreaded icepocalypse ends, we'll have plenty of concerts to revive our flagging social lives.

Diana Ross, who gave us Tracee Ellis Ross as well as, you know, her music, plays the Verizon Theatre. Key! plays a nondescript Deep Ellum locale. There's plenty more too.

I'm Terrified of Seeing Trash Talk at Club Dada Tonight

Trash Talk kind of frightens me. And by kind of I mean definitely.

Trash Talk, the hardcore punk band from Sacramento, California, has a reputation. Like, a walk around, always screaming reputation. A leave a fan bloodied reputation. A start a mosh pit, rad reputation. Since their inception in 2005, they've been putting on shows that ought to require fans to sign a waiver like the contracts the lab rats on The Real World have to sign: We're not exactly responsible for things of minor consequence like loss of limbs, mental illness or, you know, death. Okay, maybe I'm being a bit hyperbolic here, but you get the gist. If that sounds like music to your ears, then Club Dada is the place to be tonight.

Seryn come home from Nashville for the Thin Line Fest in Denton this week

When it comes to concerts in North Texas this week the biggest single event of the week may not be in Dallas, but rather in Denton. The Thin Line Film Fest has a wonderful music bill that includes Devin the Dude, Joe Ely, Blue, the Misfit and local expats Seryn. But of course there are plenty of great shows in Dallas, as well. Maroon 5 is doing the American Airlines Center, Trash Talk's at Club Dada and the Coathangers are at Trees. And, well, there's a ton more too.

Party with these folks on Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day is on Saturday. If you're solo and lonely, there's a quick fix. You can pay money for someone to pretend to be your girlfriend or boyfriend for $30. If that prospect doesn't scare you enough, then remember this: Tonight is also Friday the 13th. But never fear, there are plenty of concerts to put you at ease this weekend. Sarah Jaffe, Blue, the Misfit, Sam Lao, and S1 have a collaborative show at Trees. Party Static has an EP release party at Three Links. Animal Collective is doing a DJ set at Club Dada. Just do whatever your anatomically correct heart desires.

Let Animal Collective make your Valentine's Day get trippy, in DJ form.

Valentine's Day is coming up. It's a holiday that celebrates love and puts an immense amount on both single and coupled people. I feel dirty using the word "coupled." There's so much stuff to consider. Why am I single? Will she marry me? Why am I not getting any Tinder matches right now, it must be broken? When are we gonna stop the riff raff and get to the bumping and the grinding? So much stress. So much pressure. In order to ease your mind about the St. Valentine's Massacre Day, we've got a list of lovely concerts for you to attend.
