SPAZMATICS: The 80’s are back in fashion from leggings to fishnets, so why not go for the whole flashback with a Spazmatics experience. The geek chic band doning “Revenge of the Nerds” attire are known for performing 80’s classics like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin.” Adding their own twist to the current pop crazed music scene, the Spazmatics are spaztastically original. Hear them tonight at The Loft in The Gilley’s Complex at 10 p.m. Tickets are $15.
And, in case you missed it the first time around on Halloween, the Lakewood Theater and Amber Does Dallas are serving up another double feature of the Rocky Horror Picture Show and REPO! The Genetic Opera. Catch one of the two shows tonight beginning at 9 p.m.
