This weekend a cloud of good times will descend on Dallas! Brazileños CSS return in support of their fantastic new album La Liberacion bringing along with them MEN and EMA (it’s also a great day for caps lock). They’re playing at the House of Blues tomorrow night (Oct. 28th) and having seen CSS and MEN before it’s something you won’t want to miss. It’s also the one of the last nights of their joint tour so let’s send them home after a great show!

Tickets are $18, $20 the day of the show (so get ’em today!). Doors at 7 show starts at 8. On other shows this tour they’ve done a drag queen show at the beginning of the night so make sure to be there early to see a local queen lip sync for her life!

Also CSS and MEN have an exlusive 7″ wherein each band remixes the other. Here’s a preview of that!
