So let's say you find yourself tooling around this weekend thinking, "Man, I could really go for scantily clad people bound and gagged in various bondage getups." Pinebox Productions hears ya, you deviant. Today, fans of the BDSM, dungeon, goth and fetish lifestyles will converge for "Dark Desires." Show up in your fetish attire (or your boring old spandex) and check out sexy -- if twisted -- displays of mummification, Japanese rope bondage, role play, hardcore punishment, extreme body piercing, humiliation, suspension (you know, where people hang from hooks) and maybe even a "pony play." Hmm. There's even a dungeon for people who've been naughty and need to be punished. If your freshly spanked ass needs a break, check out electronic/industrial band Axis. This troupe from Oklahoma really packs the attractive and devious crowd in -- and slaps 'em around, too, apparently. Show up on time or you'll get a well, you get the idea. 9 p.m. For tickets, call 713-629-3700 or visit www.ticketmaster.com. $10 to $15.
