Guinness International Champion Cup

Cotton Bowl : 8:15 p.m. July 29

What the …?! Oh, come on. More? Geez. OK, fine. But only because the Rangers are done, preseason real football isn't here yet and the Guinness International Champion Cup tournament has the word “Guinness” in its name. That always gets attention. Anyway, it's AS Roma vs. Real... More >>

The World is a Carpet

The Wild Detectives : 7:00 p.m. July 30

Dallas journalists have it easy. Our First World problems range from a crappy cup of coffee to an unreturned phone call, while halfway across the world, writers like Anna Badkhen write about life in war zones or impoverishment. Badhken has covered wars in Asia, Africa and Europe, chronicling... More >>

One Man Show: Rated (R)awlins

The Kessler Theater : 8:00 p.m. July 31

Think about this night at the theater like you would any other one night stand. Except perhaps this time you'll have wiled away the hours with a lively, charming man you won't regret in the morning. For years, Rawlins Gilliland was a welcome voice on public radio, telling stories with poetic... More >>

Cabernet & Cabaret

Sammons Center for the Arts : August 1

In need of a holiday? Lucky you—because, as the old song goes, life is a cabaret, old chum--and nothing will take you away faster than a singer with a songbook of showstoppers. Also, wine helps. Such is the allure of Cabaret and Cabernet, a decadent escape that doubles as a fundraiser for... More >>

Ben Kweller

Granada Theater : 8:00 p.m. August 1

Ben Kweller has a long and storied past in North Texas. As one of the founding members of Radish, a Greenville band that sat just on the cusp of buzz­band status before fading into oblivion, Kweller and his bandmates did plenty of rocking around Dallas and greater North Texas. As a solo... More >>

The Modern Art Museum : August 2

It’s not very often that an artist gets something right on first try. But Hayao Miyazaki may be the exception. Many critics regard his debut film, Nausicaa, to be his masterwork. Certainly, it redefined the possibilities of storytelling in animated films, creating a landscape that was... More >>

Ray LaMontagne, Belle Brigade

Music Hall at Fair Park : 7:30 p.m. August 2

Although he’s often compared to such heavyweights as Otis Redding and Van Morrison, singer- songwriter Ray LaMontagne is much more akin to folks like Steven Stills and Tim Buckley. Such a distinction is crucial. Where Redding and Morrison made transcendent music that crossed genre lines... More >>

Da Mafia 6ix The Outfit, TX, TUNK., Word Life

Dada : 8:00 p.m. August 2

It’s been an eventful year for the former members of prescient hip­hop crew Three 6 Mafia. Juicy J made it big with the dance­hop album Stay Trippy. Co­founder Lord Infamous passed away with a heart attack. And, triumphantly, DJ Paul reunited most of the group, renamed them... More >>

Sarah McLachlan

The Winspear Opera House : 8:00 p.m. August 3

Listen, you're going to see Sarah McLachan at the Winspear Opera House because you love puppies, '90s movies with Nicholas Cage, the Cinder Calhoun character from Weekend Update, and the 2010 Winter Olympics. All joking aside, McLachlan is a 26­-year veteran of the music business and has... More >>

Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie : 8:00 p.m. August 6

Here's what I want to know about people who hate Yes: Is it because you don't like the music, or is it because the band replaced, Steel Dragon's style, singer and founding member Jon Anderson with the singer of a Yes tribute band? If you hate Yes for the latter reason, does it bother you even... More >>

Ewing Night

Dallas Comedy House : 9:30 p.m. every Thu.

Texas may not have left as big of a mark on the art of comedy as places like the Borscht Belt scene in the Catskills or Chicago’s storied Second City theater, but at least we’re trying. And for once we’re not referring to the fact that Rick Perry gave Jon Stewart’s The... More >>

Fun House Theatre and Film : 7:30 p.m. every Fri., Sat. from August 1 until August 9

Stiff Who killed Mickey Blake? That’s exactly what Jeff Swearingen is trying to figure out in his newest play, Stiff.

There aren't many artists with the balls to install a set of neon Playboy bunny ears on the side of the road. That's exactly what Richard Phillips did out in the wild West Texas town of Marfa. Of course, it encouraged the rest of the world the to debate the fine line between advertisement and... More >>

The Boy From Oz

Kalita Humphreys Theater : 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until August 10; 2:00 p.m. every Sun. until August 10

The Boy From Oz might be most well known as the sexy Hugh Jackman musical that overtook Broadway a few years ago.

You can’t slow time down; you can’t speed through life. You have to take it as it comes, repeating mantras like “It is what it is” or “C’est La Vie.” Resisting time is futile, but that won’t stop Melissa Dickenson from wrestling with it in her... More >>

The statistics are stunning: according to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, almost 240,000 Americans age 12 and older are sexually assaulted each year. This means that someone you know has probably survived such an attack—and has had to pick up the pieces and keep going after... More >>

Two things we’ll never be able to understand no matter how hard we try: how charming Anne Hathaway became such a polarizing figure in show business, and how a man’s life can be crippled by a loaf of bread. Sure, one is significantly less “life important” (say which one... 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 >>
