SHARK ATTACK: Surfer Blood put a Great White on the cover of their latest album, "Astro Coast," spurring us to think, "Did they name their band after a shark attack?" If so, maybe they're the anti-Fonzie, firmly embracing the shark instead of jumping it. Well, whatever the story behind the name, the band mixes a good portion of Weezer with some Arcade Fire. That's good chum. Catch them at the Granada Theater tonight at 8 p.m.
SUMMER BREEZE: It won't get hot enough today to make Six Flags Over Texas unbearable, though since it is the start of Spring Break, the park might fill up with school kids looking to get a thrill. Folks who want to be sure of a good time should catch Summer Ames' set during the "Live and Local" concert series in the park from 6 to 9 p.m. We'd previously described Ames' music like Dallas' very own Apple commercial soundtrack and we're sticking to it -- Ames is perfect for your Spring playlist.
RIGHT AT THE REGENCY: Love him or hate him, it's hard to deny Karl Rove has some serious political expertise helping former President George W. Bush win Texas Governor twice and then take the White House. His new memoir, "Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight," pretty much spells out what today's speaking engagement at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas will be all about. Trust us, if you don't agree with his politics, you'll still be able to appreciate the strategy. Lecture begins at 11:15 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m.
