Smothered in Cool
So you think you're cool, huh? Been going around hijacking scenes from everyone that's old and out of it? Well, Mr. Hipster, think about this: Ever get a live shout-out from Jimi Hendrix? Ever been censored and then kicked off the airwaves for your apolitical views? Been the subject of a documentary, had a successful career in show business for 50 years, introduce acts at the Monterrey Pop Festival, get a star on the Hollywood walk of fame or maybe own your own vineyard? Maybe you have a little something to learn then. Lemme tell ya, for all the above reasons, nobody is too cool to check out the Smothers Brothers. Perhaps most people know them as variety show hosts, but most tend to forget the Brothers rode the cutting edge well before it was necessary to wear black eyeliner to show how anti-establishment you are. Well here they are again, and the comedic duo will kick it around a little with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for a couple of nights. Show some brotherly love Friday and Saturday. Tickets range from $21 to $101. For more information, call 214-692-0203 or visit DallasSymphony.com.
