My Brightest Diamond is cooler than all of us and she's at Urban Lounge tonight

Dear GYA, It's not often that I'll admit when something, or someone is cool, *ties hair into a perfectly messy manbun* but there's something about My Brightest Diamond that makes me rethink the definition of "cool." You know what I mean?

Tuesdays are for jamming a microphone in your face and singing UB40.

Dear GYA, Everyday Tuesday it's the same thing, man— wake-up, go to work, sit at my desk and carefully comb through UB40 songs until I find the perfect show stopper to perform later on at karaoke night. Right now, I'm going over the extremely complicated rap verse in "Red Red Wine."

Is there any time of day you can safely feed a Mogwai? Find out at Brewvies tonight for free

Dear GYA, We all know that if you feed a Mogwai after midnight it turns into a Gremlin. But how long do I have to wait?

Celebrate Danksgiving tonight at The Royal

Dear GYA, Yo, Thanksgiving is cool and all, but for me, it's really all about Danksgiving. What is Danksgiving, you ask?

Learn all about mathcore at tonight's Seizures show

Dear GYA, Some will argue that mathcore's roots can be traced back to metalcore, which is true to some extent. However, for me, *brushes bangs away from face* the sub-genre has more in common with unusual time signatures of grindcore.

Chrissie Hynde is "special, so special" and she's at The Depot tonight

Dear GYA, Ever since Scarlett Johansson did a karaoke version of "Brass in Pocket" in Lost in Translation, it begs the question, who is more "special, so special," ScarJo or former Pretenders lead singer Chrissie Hynde? Though both are extremely, "special, so special," when it comes to down to it, personally, I think it's all about Hynde.

If you're into "running the trap," don't miss Flosstradamus at In The Venue tonight

Dear GYA, Last night my daughter looked me square in the eyes and said, "Turn down for what, dad?" and I said, "Turn down for calling your grandma on her birthday, Lauren." Served.

Get in the holiday spirit by head-banging to heavy Christmas rock tonight at Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Dear GYA, Every year around this time, Christmas rock fans have the same old, tired debate over who rocks Christmas the hardest, Manheim Steamroller or Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I'll be honest, when I go to a Manheim show, sure, my bells are certainly jingled.

There are a couple of insanely good hip-hop shows happening tonight, so how do you choose?

Dear GYA, Look, on one hand I'd love to see Run The Jewels tonight. They were great at Twilight last summer and their new album earned a 9 out of 10 on Pitchfork.

MartyParty is at Urban Lounge this weekend, exactly how much bass will be in your face?

Dear GYA, Hey, what can I say, I'm just a guy who loves bass...specifically in my facial area. Do you have any clue on exactly how much bass will be in my face at this weekend's MartyParty show?
