Curious George is a frequent bedtime player in my house, where the little ones love his tales of marginally acceptable monkey behavior.

Matt Sadler

Hyena's Comedy Club Dallas : 8:30 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until April 4; 10:30 p.m. April 3

Road comics have the best stories. When they start out, they have to play pretty much anywhere with a microphone and a stage that’s willing to barter jokes for actual money, food or a night of sleep in the barn. Austin’s Matt Sadler has a ton of those stories. He once heard the... More >>

Jungle

South Side Music Hall : 8:00 p.m. April 8

Jungle updates the very familiar genres of soul and funk.

Who’s Afraid of Chuck and George?

The iconic ending of The Breakfast Club has been paid homage many times, lately in teen movies like Easy A and Pitch Perfect.

The Free Man : 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. every Tue.

The Free Loaders have earned their praise in this city. They haven’t been sitting around on their asses all these years. It was show after show, no matter if it was in a club, at a party, or some boogie event where the music isn’t meant to be appreciated, yet it is there for the... More >>

Once you’ve seen “Hip Hop, 1993” by Earlie Hudnall, Jr., it’s hard to clear it from your brain. Maybe you can forget the glowing, slight-but-strong frame bent in the most “Yeah, what” body language. It’s the hole-boring eyes that know way too much for... More >>

If you’re like me, it’s very easy to window-shop for a new life. I do it at NorthPark all the time. I walk through Pirch or some other store I can’t afford and imagine a life that’s fancier. More fashionable. I’m guessing it’s a struggle I share with many... More >>

Skizzy Mars

Trees : 7:00 p.m. April 7

It seems like almost every rapper under the age of 30 that doesn’t make it a point to let you in on the fact that they sell a lot of drugs and kill people sometimes is a son of Kid Cudi. Skizzy Mars undoubtedly comes from the lineage of the Man On the Moon. He’s a liaison between... More >>

AIR Time: Amadeus

Alamo Drafthouse : 7:00 p.m. April 8

There’s a push these days in the arts to be multi-genre, or to be experimental in venue, at the very least. Which is to say that concert venues host art exhibitions, and sometimes movie theaters host classical music events. Sometimes this doesn’t make sense; sometimes it’s... More >>
