    INDIE ROCK RALLY: It’s going to be a night of smooth style and seriously cool songs from Interpol – no, not the international police organization, but the indie rock band hailing from the Big Apple. The band is credited for encompassing the sound of the indie music scene in New York City and emerging out of the post-punk revival in the early millennium. The original foursome that started it all is now a trio (bassist Carlos Dengler left to pursue other projects) with a few back-up key players lending hands on the current tour. The band’s fourth self-titled album was just released this past September and is the last album by all four original members.  See the indie rock band that pulled a Destiny’s Child (only no one was actually kicked out) tonight at The Palladium Ballroom with White Rabbits at 8 p.m.

    GO RANGERS: All of North Texas is experiencing "Ranger Mania" and witnessing history as the Texas Rangers appear in their first World Series. The American League champions play the San Francisco Giants in game one of the World Series at 6:30 p.m. Since tickets to San Francisco cost an arm and a leg, watch the game on the big screen at the Granada Theater. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with $3 wells and beer specials – enjoy a good beer without paying skyrocket ballpark prices. The Granada may not be broadcasting all World Series games because of performance conflicts, but for game one, they made an exception. Get there early to secure a good seat!

    BONES IN THE HOUSE: Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are making a comeback on the music scene – yes, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. The hip hop group released “Uni-5: The World’s Enemy” in May, but their last album was in 2007 “Strength & Loyalty,” and their music hasn’t made an impact on charts since the late ‘90s. Known for rapping to the beat about anything from violence to politics and religion, the band has transitioned in subject matter since their creation. Tonight the resurrection begins again as they perform at the House of Blues Dallas with Johnny Ringo at 8:30 p.m. .
