Fort Worth’s first Veterans Day celebration was in 1919 when an armistice procession came through downtown in honor of those who had fought in World War I, and we’ve had an annual parade ever since. This year’s Tarrant County Veterans Day Parade is a salute to Buffalo Soldiers, African Americans who mainly served on the Western Front following the Civil War. At 11am, the parade will begin in the parking lot of Panther Island Pavilion (395 Purcey St, 817-698-0700) and proceed down North Forest Park Boulevard along the Clearfork of the Trinity River and back. There is no cost to attend. For more info, visit FW2022Parade.org.

If last night’s showcase left you wanting something harder than straight-up rock ’n’ roll, Rubber Gloves (411 E Sycamore St, Denton, 940-594-22007) has the show for you. Grindcore Monday starts at 7pm and features hardcore/thrash legends Napalm Death with labelmates Frozen Soul of North Texas (founded in Fort Worth, currently from Dallas), deathgrind outfit Brujeria from Mexico, and the notoriously left-leaning hardcore punk band MDC. (I’ll just let you google that acronym yourself.) Tickets are $25 at RubberGlovesDenton.com.
