Everything's coming up drums at Oak Lawn's vegetarian mainstay the Cosmic Cup; Thursday night's West African drum circle is now led by Kweku Gregory Codrington, who will also have a free gallery display of the drums and musical instruments he designs and builds at the Eccentric Uncle (3615 Parry) on November 30. He will also give a solo concert...Amy "No Pagans Here" Martin--familiar to most through her association with the annual SolstiCelebration--is leading a Tuesday night circle at the Cup from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m. specifically for the smaller drums (like tabla) that are often drowned out by the more macho instruments; Martin also reports that the Pound on Lower Greenville has started a Wednesday night jam...
The Turtle Creek Chorale kicks off their holiday season December 1 with a series of evening Christmas concerts at the Meyerson; please bring an unwrapped toy to be donated to the Children's Medical Center Toy Drive...the Tokyo String Quartet will be performing a program of Haydn, Schubert, and Ravel at TCU's Ed Landreth Auditorium on December 3 as part of the ongoing Sun and Star celebration...The Deep Ellum Opera Theatre will stage Ahmal and the Night Visitors at the Theatre on Elm Street beginning December 6 and continuing through the month...In a less seasonal vein, come out to Club Clearview November 30 and check out ex-Straffer Dillion Silvers in his new role as a guitarist with Mess.
