    SOMERSET, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 5: A Drinker relaxes in Tucker's Grave, a traditional cider pub, February 5, 2005, Faulkland, Somerset, England. Regulars in the pub known for its stong rough cider say changes in the licensing law will make no differnce to them. This weekend was the last one before pubs and clubs can apply for extended licences. From February 7, venues can begin applying for 24-hour licences, however, the licences will not become effective until the Government puts an order before Parliament in November. Critics fear this will lead to increased binge-drinking, crime, disorder and city centres becoming no-go areas. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)

    ON VIEW: The Dead Photographers Society's opening at the Belmont Hotel is just another reason to check out the hip space if you haven't. It's the only place in Dallas where you can bask in the hilly topography of Oak Cliff and gaze at the downtown skyline, as BarBelmont bridges the two experiences. An opening reception for the broad exhibit, which will prove useful for aspiring photogs wanting to compare techniques, is at the bar tonight from 6-9PM.

    BAR BRIGHT: The Beaten Sea plays crackly sundown folk that breaks into full choruses with lush vocals. Catch acoustic sets by the band and the energetic Here, in Arms at City Tavern. 9PM.

    SPACE AND TIME: Brainy and unafraid, Astronautilus makes indie hip-hop with elements of European folk, blues, and, dark pop. From the bar at Rubber Gloves, you'll be given a history lesson and a kick in the ears that will likely send you into the main room. $8. 9PM.
