BEHIND THE STRINGS: Heard of Owen Pallet? As an orchestral collaborator, he's most notably tickled your ears as a co-writer of string arrangements on Arcade Fire's Funeral and Neon Bible. He's on tour behind his own charming chamber-infused electro-pop songs, and you can see Telegraph Canyon open for him at the Granada. Find tickets starting at $12 here. 7PM.
DRIVE LIKE AN EGYPTIAN: Ishi crowns the all-ages Indie Rock Dance Party at The Loft, which holds an exciting possibility for the electro-folk act: if tonight's Dallas event draws more partiers than any of the other events Ford is putting on to celebrate the U.S. debut of the Fiesta, then Ishi goes to Bonnaroo in June. RSVP here and you'll get in free. DJ Sober and Darktown Strutters open. 8PM.
PASSWORD IS 'BOOKWORM': The central branch of Dallas Public Library turns into a swing-era dance club tonight as the ACME Swing Company offers a floor show and a quick lesson after a wine and cheese reception. Find more info here. 6:30PM.
