Cinewilde: Priscilla Queen of the Desert

Texas Theatre : August 29

In 1994, a flamboyant little film out of Australia made serious waves in world cinema with a heartfelt and fabulous story of two drag queens and a trans woman driving a bus through the Outback. Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce and a brilliant Terrance Stamp take on the roles of our heroines, bopping... More >>

Psycho

The Modern Art Museum : August 29

I was 13-years-old before my parents would let me watch Psycho. Growing up on a steady diet of Alfred Hitchcock films (Rope was too boring; The Birds was too campy), I expected another suspenseful romantic black and white with a handsome devil like Cary Grant or Jimmy Stewart trying to solve...

Chimaira, The Plot in You, Upon This Dawning, Allegeaon, Silence the Messenger, Deathstar, Design of Destiny

Trees : 7:00 p.m. August 29

Due to numerous lineup changes over the course of 16 years, vocalist Mark Hunter is the only original member of Cleveland’s Chimaira. Incredibly, the heavy metal band’s sound hasn’t deviated that much from the 2001 debut Pass Out of Existence to last year’s Crown of... More >>

Bilal

Dada : 8:00 p.m. August 29

Fun fact about critically acclaimed neo-soul singer Bilal (born Bilal Sayeed Oliver): He was discovered in his teens by none other than the drummer of the Spin Doctors. Did you also know that the band that would become the Spin Doctors was also a side-project for John Popper? Be careful of the... More >>

Portugal. The Man, Grouplove, with Starfucker

South Side Music Hall : 7:00 p.m. August 30

I'm 99 percent sure that Portugal. the Man fans have formed some sort of cult around the band's music -- which is not to say “cult favorites,” but a literal cult with ceremonies, traditions, robes and chanting set to fuzzy indie rock. Such is the devotion to the Alaskan group that... More >>

Texas Burlesque Peep Show

Texas Theatre : 9:00 p.m. August 30

The '20s were a great decade for women. It gave us bobbed hair, trousers, and oh yeah, a tiny thing called women's suffrage. It would be a few decades before we mastered the art of second wave feminism, in which women began to reclaim their sexuality, but it's certainly the sound of woman in... More >>

Travis Tritt

Billy Bob's Texas : 10:30 p.m. August 30

Since the early '90s, Travis Tritt's characteristic long hair and southern-rock vocals have been a common fixture on the airwaves. You probably remember him from "T-R-O-U-B-L-E," the honky tonk hit that made him a country mainstay. In the later years of his career, Tritt earned a reputation as... More >>

Duck Soup

Alamo Drafthouse : 12:30 p.m. August 31

If you've never seen a Marx Brothers film, stop reading and download one right now. We'll wait. Too busy now? Then just make plans to head to the Alamo Drafthouse (100 S. Central Expressway in Richardson) at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, when the movie theater screens Duck Soup, which is often considered... More >>

Mad Decent Block Party

Zouk : 2:00 p.m. August 31

The summer is winding down and pretty soon it's going to get rainy and cold. Well, cool. Or at least cool-ish. Sure, you're sweltering now, but you're going to miss all the parties, concerts and other outdoor events you didn't take advantage of because you were inside, hugging an... More >>

Chicago & REO Speedwagon

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:30 p.m. August 31

What’s crazy about the REO Speedwagon’s 1980 hit machine/Trans-Am heavy-petting mood-setter High Infidelity is that the band was nine albums and 13 years into its career when it scored this millions-selling monster. The Beatles may have made more records in a shorter period of time,... More >>

Fair Park Music

Big Tex Choice Awards

Fair Park : 10:00 a.m. September 1

You say you just can't wait to get your greasy mitts on some of the fine State Fair of Texas fried food? Twelve months is just too long to wait between bouts of funnel cakes and corn dogs? Well, we have good news and bad news. The good news is that for the first time ever, the fair is letting... More >>

Pickin' for Preemies

Billy Bob's Texas : 3:30 p.m. September 1

One will be hard-pressed to point out an annual benefit show in the past decade that’s been as impactful as the annual Pickin’ for Preemies show has been. This year marks the ninth edition and it will again benefit the Cook Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This... More >>

Tuesday Night Trash:Stunt Rock

Texas Theatre : 9:15 p.m. September 2

Some movies are just downright trashy. Not trashy in a sexy, tawdry way but trashy in a why-the-hell-can't-I-turn-this-POS-off way. When the acting is downright awful, the plot absurd and the production quality minimal, the filmmaker may not have a blockbuster, but it might have a late-night... More >>

Juicy J, T$

Trees : 7:00 p.m. September 3

Juicy J won an Academy Award before Martin Scorsese. Why? Because he is perhaps the most talented rapper-producer in the history of Southern hip-hop who's name is not DJ Screw nor a member of UGK. Ever since soloing on the first Three Six Mafia track, “Slob On My Nob,” J has been... More >>

Jewish Film Festival

Studio Movie Grill - Spring Valley : September 4

The Jewish Community Center of Dallas' annual film festival is one of the smaller jewels in the DFW's cinematic crown. It may not take up as much real estate as the USA Film Festival or the Dallas International Film Festival but it still sparkles when the light shines upon it. This year's... More >>

The Goss-Michael Foundation : 6:00 p.m. September 4

For much of its existence, the Goss Michael Foundation has been known as that George Michael art place. But in the past few years, it's beginning to prove that it can be so much more. With Kenny Goss at the helm, the space has introduced innovative educational and charitable initiatives like... More >>

Draped Up & Dripped Out: Party

Oak Cliff Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. September 5

What's that saying about tides and ships? As the arts scene in Texas swells, so does the opportunity for cross-city collaboration. Whether it be sending Dallas artists to Austin, or bringing Houston artists here, as is the case with Draped Up & Dripped Out, a two-part exhibition at the Oak... More >>

Naughty Bits

Lakewood Theater : 8:00 p.m. September 5

Tifa Tittlywinks, Kiki Maroon, Divertida Devotchka, Vivienne Vermuth, Layna D’Luna, and Lola LeStrange want to show you their naughty bits. Seriously. And, they are doing it all in the name of video games. A dream come true, right? You can thank Viva Dallas Burlesque for it; see,... More >>

Nancy Myers

The Sixth Floor Museum : 2:00 p.m. September 6

Having a personal insight into American history is something so few people can really boast. You may have been a part of a historic gathering in your time, but it’s likely nobody will ever ask you about that time you drank your way through the crowds at Cowboy’s Stadium... More >>

Casey Gray: Of Land and Sea

Circuit 12 Contemporary : 6:00 p.m. September 6

In much of Casey Gray's art, there's a humorous tension between message and medium. Imagine if the 17th century Flemish painters had worked in spray paint. Conversely, picture Peter Paul Rubens on a skateboard. See? Funny. This was the crux of much of San Francisco-based Gray's early work, some... More >>

Gilbert Gottfried

Hyena's Comedy Club Dallas : 8:00 p.m. September 6

The man with the most distinctive voice in comedy defines the concept of a "comic's comic." Gilbert Gottfried did more than just spend a lifetime doing comedy and spending a season or two on Saturday Night Live. He stuck to his comedy no matter where his career took him through roles in... More >>

Dallas Dance Fest

Dallas City Performance Hall : August 29; August 30

The fall dance season is starting off with “the best dance festival ever!” says arts patron and Dallas DanceFest producer Gayle Halperin. Back after nearly 10 years, the Dallas DanceFest will definitely give a lay of the Dallas dance land, but we’ll have to see if it’s... More >>

It’s difficult to know why Archibald John Motley Jr. never received the recognition he deserved during his lifetime. This modernist painter depicted African-American life in his native Chicago, exploring race, gender and sexuality with a voyeuristic perspective. His paintings cast light... More >>

As Americans — actually, just as literate creatures — we’re protective of those special treasure troves of words we call books. In fact, well before our military involvement in World War II, the United States became terribly disturbed by a certain form of censorship occurring... More >>

It doesn’t sound like there are a lot of perks to being First Lady: the President’s wife can only be passionate about what’s politically correct and has to deal with being called FLOTUS, which sounds an awful lot like some sort of menstrual malady. But one perk that the First... More >>
