Carmen Boullosa’s Texas: The Great Theft

The Wild Detectives : 7:00 p.m. October 22

A coworker recently pointed out to me that without fail, iPhones will autocorrect “Deep Ellum” into “Deep Vellum.” Now, we’re not saying that this was the impetus for the new Dallas-based translation company’s name. But it could’ve been. After all,... More >>

of Montreal

Trees : 7:00 p.m. October 22

Kevin Barnes gives zero fucks about what you think about his almost two-decades-long project Of Montreal. If he had a dime for every time a critical missive about his work bothered him he'd have zero dimes. Case in point: The final lyric uttered on last year's Lousy with Sylvianbriar is,... More >>

Jim Gaffigan

Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie : 7:30 p.m. October 22

Comedian Jim Gaffigan has made a living talk about his love of food but unlike some snooty Food Network talking head who treats sustenance as some kind of sexual valhalla, Gaffigan treats like a long, enduring marriage. He clearly loves such an important part of his life, even if it's slowly... More >>

Grand Prairie Comedy

TTNG (This Town Needs Guns)

Dada : 7:30 p.m. October 23

Don't be fooled by the name. This isn't a grassroots 2nd Amendment movement. TTNG (This Town Needs Guns) is a math rock band from Oxford, United Kingdom. A.k.a. the place with arguably the greatest university in the world. So, it makes sense that the band relishes smart and complex guitar work... More >>

Fire & Ice

Latino Cultural Center : 8:00 p.m. October 23

Fire and ice and sugar and spice, and all those other things that are so very nice, will be on display Thursday, October 23 at the Latino Cultural Center during Contemporary Ballet Dallas’ season opener, Fire & Ice. Director Valerie Tabor, who was one of our 100 Creatives, will premiere... More >>

East Dallas & Lakewood Dance

Laurie Anderson

The Kessler Theater : 8:00 p.m. October 23

If you know the name, Laurie Anderson, but don't fancy yourself an post modernist art music aficianado, it's probably because of her breakout hit in the 1980's “O Superman” - a pulsating synth piece that sounds like an amalgam of Phillip Glass and Imogen Heap. If you haven't heard... More >>

Self Published

Cohn Drennan Contemporary : 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. October 24

Everybody has that friend who self published their novel and is begging you to stop by the Amazon page and give it a sparkling review. The idea of self publishing can earn sneers from the people who believe in the value of the backing of a publishing house. But to present your work to the world... More >>

Ziggy Marley

Granada Theater : 7:00 p.m. October 24

Much like Sean Lennon, Ziggy Marley is music royalty. His dad was ridiculously successful at spreading Rastafari around the globe and created some of the greatest music ever recorded. Ziggy Marley has been making music since 1979 when he performed with his siblings and father in the Melody... More >>

The Marriage of Figaro

The Winspear Opera House : 8:00 p.m. October 24

Downtown & Deep Ellum Opera

Lynyrd Skynyrd

WinStar Casino : 9:00 p.m. October 24

Yes, this is rock 'n' roll. The swagger, the riffs, the whole lot of it. But, it's technically pop, as in popular music, as well. You don't generally have this type of longevity in pop, especially when only one original member of the band is still in the band. Lynyrd Skynyrd has had a revolving... More >>

Dismember the Alamo

Alamo Drafthouse : 12:00 p.m. October 25

If you don't have kids or live on a block where the neighborhood kids don't throw eggs at the houses that don't give out candy on Halloween, then the best way to enjoy Halloween is by going to a theater for a good, old fashioned horror movie. The Alamo Drafthouse (501 W. Belt Line Rd.) knows... More >>

Second Thought State of Mind

Bridge Bistro : 7:00 p.m. October 25

There’s got to be something so sweet about coming home after you hit the big time—and not in a “nyah nyah”, rub-it-in-their-face kinda way. Rather, there’s probably some special feels a person gets after seeing the places where they built themselves up and put in... More >>

Jason Aldean: 2014 Burn It Down Tour

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 7:30 p.m. October 25

Bro-country is the scourge of all music. It's the worst thing on the radio. It's the worst thing in the history of all music, and that history includes metal singer Vanilla Ice, Rapper Rodney Dangerfield, Billy Bob Thorton and the “All About That Bass” girl. It has turned one of the... More >>

Fair Park Music

Tiny Thumbs

Centraltrak : 8:00 p.m. October 25

When you think of video games, you probably think of overweight guys sitting in their basement den as they spray blood across their TV screen. You probably think of massive guns that not even a body builder could carry and aim with effectively at the same time. The indie game movement has shown... More >>

Joey Bada$$

South Side Ballroom : 8:30 p.m. October 25

There's an undeniable thirst for nostalgia that pervades hip hop, a longing for the golden age of the 1990s when so much care was placed on lyrics and funk and jazz and soul samples. It all comes full circle when you take into consideration that the a large piece of the time period in... More >>

Texas Rap Festival Featuring Geto Boys, Bun B, Slim Thug, And More

Gexa Energy Pavilion : 1:00 p.m. October 26

Since the 1990s Southern rap has become one of the most influential sub-genres of American hip hop. It was around this era that the chopped and screwed ontology emerged from the Houston scene, creating a new wave of crossfading sounds. But the slowed tempo, skipped beats, record scratching and...

Alton Brown Live!

Majestic Theatre : 7:30 p.m. October 26

If you took a pinch of Gallagher, mixed it with a cup of Ira Glass, and then added a dash or so of Paula Deen’s more polite southern sensibilities (while making sure there is absolutely no Guy Fieri cross-contamination, thank you very much), you’d whip up a pretty decent version of... More >>

Authors Live!: Jodi Picoult

SMU Hughes-Trigg Student Center : 7:00 p.m. October 27

Some readers are gluttons for a good cry, which might be one of the reasons Jodi Picoult has earned such a large fan base. She's written 22 novels, including My Sister's Keeper, which is harder on your tear ducts than a freshly peeled onion. She'll be on the SMU campus in the student center to... More >>

Park Cities Literary Events


Trees : 7:00 p.m. October 27

Drake is the best rap blogger in the world.

Ann Hamilton

The Nasher Sculpture Center : 7:00 p.m. October 28

East Dallas & Lakewood Sports - Spectator


Trees : 7:00 p.m. October 28

Calling the Melvins a heavy metal band is a disservice to both the band and the genre. The colossal, droning, earsplitting sludge of doom produced by Buzz Osborne and crew is often referred to as heavy metal simply by default. The Melvins are also a lot weirder and quite a bit more intense than... More >>

America's Test Kitchen Live

Majestic Theatre : 7:30 p.m. October 29

You know that broccoli and cheese soup recipe your grandmother passed down to you that you make every chance you get? Yeah, Christopher Kimball thinks you’re cooking it all wrong and his mission in life is to teach you the right way. Everyone’s favorite PBS cooking show,... More >>
