Tuna & The Rock Cats. Heard of them? Tuna and her band of rock ’n’ roll kitties are kind of a big deal.

At 8pm Wed, Thu, and today, you can see her perform — excuse me, purrform — in person at The Amazing Acro-Cats Frolic at Stage West (821 W Vickery Blvd, 817-784-9378). Tickets are $35-$45 at BrownPaperTickets.com.

Supposedly, pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America. But what is it? According to the Google machine, it is a paddleball sport that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and regular ol’ tennis that can be played with two or four players. News to me. If you want to check it out, a new indoor/outdoor venue/restaurant in Grand Prairie called Chicken N Pickle (2965 S Hwy 161, @ChickenNPickleGPTX) has Newbie Night from 5:30pm to 7pm. The cost is $5 per person. Reserve your spot for tonight or a future Newbie Night at ReserveCNP.com/Grand-Prairie/Event/Newbie-Night.
