Things To Do on Wednesday, August 29.
Behold, the Tallest Man on Earth!

The week is half-over, so congratulations! You're halfway there! You should celebrate with some music. Completely and totally coincidentally, a large amount of things to do tonight are music related. First off, Kristian Matsson, also known as The Tallest Man on Earth, will be singing in a nasally voice at the House of Blues. Other than that, the stoner-punks in Colleen Green will light up Bryan Street Tavern (figuratively), and the Indigo Girls will team up with that Dallas Symphony Orchestra at the Meyerson.
The Tallest Man on Earth at House of Blues
Behold Kristian Matsson, the sixteen-foot-tall man who travels the world with his guitar, singing heart-wrenching tunes about how hard it is to fit through a door. You'll cry bucket loads of tears during touching numbers like "I Have to Order My Shoes Online,"and "I Stepped on My Dog (And Now He's Dead)."
Indigo Girls with the DSO at Meyerson
For those of you that weren't at the recent Ted Nugent show, the Indigo Girls can meet you on the opposite end of the political spectrum. The folk duo has recently spent a bit of time apart while Amy Ray worked on her solo album, but now they're back in touring form.
Colleen Green at Bryan Street Tavern
Colleen Green is coming to Bryan Street to advance her deadly, pot-smoking agenda. She even changed her name to "Green," and not because it's her favorite color, but because it's part of her propaganda mission (otherwise known as "Operation Smoke Weed Everyday"). Ms. Green will try to promote her 420 lifestyle with catchy pop tunes, but don't be fooled by this public menace.
Second City at Wyly Theater
Tonight is the opening night of Second City Does Dallas, where members of the famed Chicago improv troupe team up with the Brierley Resident Acting Company to put on a sure-to-be-hilarious performance. Second City has been known to have members who would go on to have well-established comedy careers, such as John Candy, Tina Fey and Bill Murray, so perhaps you'll be able to say about the performers "I saw them before they were famous."
