Hyena’s presents T.J. Miller
T.J. Miller has been diligently working to make people laugh for over 15 years, and is driven by the altruistic mission statement that life is fundamentally tragic and the best thing he can do is provide an ephemeral escapism from that tragedy which permeates everyday life by doing comedy. Miller, best known for starring in Silicon Valley, the Deadpool series, and the How to Train Your Dragon series, will perform three times through Friday at Hyena’s Fort Worth.
The Gatlin Brothers in concert
Billy Bob’s Texas will kick off their monthlong 40th anniversary celebration with a group that’s been around for as long as the venue itself, The Gatlin Brothers. Larry Gatlin and his brothers have a 42-year history of releasing music, from 1979’s Straight Ahead to 2015’s The Gospel According to Gatlin. They even released an album titled Live at Billy Bob’s Texas in 2004. They’ll play a special one-night-only concert.
