DAD ROCK: Wilco's in town on perhaps the first tour during which Jeff Tweedy's wardrobe has been noted consistently. Whether it's because the ditties on Wilco (The Album) are cheerful and classic enough for standard performance or because the guy's just growing into the eccentric jackets of a nutty poet while his support network is stabilizing, the band's show at The Palladium with Liam Finn should be a lot of fun. 8PM.

BIKE-IN MOVIE: If it isn't cool enough that the Belmont Hotel is lending Cyclesomatic its poolside "theater" for a bike-in viewing of Breaking Away, the hotel's new swanky barbeque joint Smoke is providing the dinner fare and beer. The showing starts at sundown or 7PM, whichever comes first.

JIVE AFTER FIVE: Fort Worth has more than its share of charming swing dance spots, and the Fort Worth Swing Dance Syndicate keeps 'em hoppin'. Bring an even-numbered group to First Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church for best results and learn some East Coast steps at 8PM before breaking away or watching the pros until 11:30PM.
