Phish frontman Trey Anastasio just keeps on jamming. He’ll be heading out on the road next week for a string of acoustic shows, before joining back up with the band for an arena tour that concludes with another New Year’s Eve of Phish at Madison Square Garden. In 2020, he’ll return to the road with the Trey Anastasio Band, starting on January 10 in Port Chester, New York, before heading to the West Coast and swinging down to the South, closing out the short tour on February 1 in New Orleans.

It’s that time of year for one of NCAA football’s greatest rivalries: The Red River Showdown. This Saturday, the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners and the No. 11 Texas Longhorns battle it out at their annual duel in Dallas. Tune in tomorrow at 11 a.m. central time for kickoff to see if Oklahoma can repeat their win from last year. 


3. Lana Del Rey Extends U.S. Tour

Lana Del Rey is closing out her short West Coast tour today in San Diego, but, thankfully, she’s just announced another set of dates in November for the Norman F-cking Rockwell! Tour in support of her latest acclaimed album of the same name. The singer-songwriter will head to Albuquerque on November 3, then trek around the Midwest and end in Nashville on November 19. We hope she continues to add surprise guests (like when Joan Baez joined her onstage in Berkeley, California, last Sunday). Tickets go on sale today.

The New York Yankees took no time in advancing to the American League Championship Series, quickly eliminating the Minnesota Twins in Game 3 with a full sweep earlier this week. They’ll be taking on the Houston Astros, who took home their own ALDS title last night after an intense five-game series.

It’s BABYMETAL’s galaxy — we’re all just living in it. The Japanese kawaii metal band are back with their third studio album, Metal Galaxy, now as just a duo. Su-metal and Moametal continue to unite the cute and the fun with some powerfully in-your-face heavy metal.
