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 >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Spoken Word

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 >>

Uptown & Oak Lawn Cabaret

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 >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Music


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 >>

Fort Worth Film - Art House

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 >>

Fair Park Music

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 >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Music

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 >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Music

The History of Future Folk

The Kessler Theater : 8:30 p.m. August 5

Blue Moon Men of Kentucky What do folk music and aliens have in common? Well, nothing. At least they didn’t until The History of Future Folk, the movie about two aliens who visit Earth and decide to save the planet because they’ve fallen in love with — among other things... More >>

Monty Python Live (Mostly)

Alamo Drafthouse : 7:25 p.m. August 6

At this point in the lives of the remaining members of Monty Python, you have to wonder: Is that a bit from the Ministry of Silly Walks he's doing, or does John Cleese have a touch of lumbago? Oh, it'll be hilarious either way; it's just nicer to laugh with a clear conscience. No such worries... More >>

Richardson & Vicinity Film - Events


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 >>

Grand Prairie Music

Big Thought, Big Night

Dear Clark, Hair Studio : 7:00 p.m. August 7

What’s that screwy motto for the City of Dallas? “Live Large, Think Big” or did they change it to “Big Things Happen Here?” It seems we’re hellbent on letting the outside world know that Dallas is a big city that does, well, big things. But big is such a... More >>

Uptown & Oak Lawn Arts, Activism


Ash Studios : 8:00 p.m. August 8

Like a fine wine and a good cheese, no one complains about pairing art and music. What could be better than wiling the hot summer hours away in an artist’s studio, listening to some jams, and sipping on a cold beer you picked up from the corner store. Sound like your kind of Friday night?... More >>

Lifetime Personal Fantasies, LLC

Beefhaus : 7:00 p.m. August 9

Sure, Dallas might be at a disadvantage without easy access to the coasts, but it’s smack dab between Los Angeles and New York, which for this weekend proves lucky. A two-part exhibition, Lifetime Personal Fantasies, LLC, features the work of LA-based artist Keith J. Varadi and NY-based... More >>

Summer Mockbusters: Armageddon

Granada Theater : 7:00 p.m. August 9

Armaggedon Michael Bay cannot be mocked enough. His films deserve to be taken down with an unrelenting spray of scorn and ridicule and not just because they are among some of the worst, highest-grossing movies to come out of Hollywood. They should be the only movies during which it's OK to talk... More >>

Fashion Arena

Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens : 2:00 p.m. August 10

The word arena might usually conjure images of tall men in brightly colored uniforms, dribbling an orange ball down a court. Trade the men for women, the uniforms for outfits, and just ditch the balls entirely, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of The Fashion Opera’s next event,... More >>

Latino Cultural Center : 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until August 30

For Ricardo Paniagua, the canvas is sculpture and his sculpture is a canvas. He uses vivid colors to reconfigure recognizable shapes, suggesting interests in geometry and psychedelia, and to talk to Paniagua is to talk to someone inspired. His self-taught artistry and varied creative outputs... More >>

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 >>

Red Arrow Contemporary : 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri. until August 31

The art world seems to be crazy about screen printing these days. From T­shirts to tote bags and now fine art, the once obscure practice of silk screening has had a major comeback in recent years, and of course, it's huge in Austin. Well guess what? Now you can enjoy the majesty of some... More >>

A few weeks ago, a lone scientist calculated that civilization as we know it is a mere 15 or so years from implosion. Thanks to our earth-destroyin’ ways, the end is fairly nigh according to him. If that’s the case, it’s a pretty sad showing for humanity, who will have lasted... 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 >>
