Elvis Night

El Ranchito Cafe & Club : 7:30 p.m. August 20

Elvis Presley, God love him, was a man of excess. He was a glam rocker before glam rock — sporting eye shadow and plowing through mass inventories of rhinestones. He drank a case of soda a day, had shag carpet laid in his bathroom and required that his pantry be stocked with six cans of... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Food and Drink

Thumpers, Sun Club

Three Links : 8:00 p.m. August 20

In February Sub Pop put out London-based Thumpers’ third release, Galore continuing a string of attempts to find the next big thing for the label. You can see why they would bet on Thumpers. The duo’s mix of near-EDM and airy synth pop is having its moment, and you never know what... More >>

Fair Park Music

Panic! At the Disco

South Side Music Hall : 7:00 p.m. August 22

Man, Las Vegas is weird. Look at the list of bands from there: The Killers, Imagine Dragons and Friday night’s headliner at the South Side Music Hall, Panic! at the Disco. One was the only band to survive the nu-new wave boom of the mid-2000s, one is currently selling out arenas and one... More >>

RAW Dallas: Allure

Lizard Lounge : 7:00 p.m. August 22

In a city with as many artists as Dallas, getting your name out can be a struggle. Hell, getting your work shown can be a daunting task even for seasoned artists. Luckily for Dallas’ starving artistic masses, RAW Dallas is putting on another show, at 7 p.m. Friday at the Lizard Lounge... More >>

Social Sciences: Identity

Perot Museum of Nature and Science : 7:00 p.m. August 22

Have you ever wondered if beer makes you more fun to be around? Do you find yourself building an identity based on how other people treat you? Or is your job the most “you” thing about you? Identity is a tricky thing. Insecurities and egos are two of the biggest obstacles for... More >>

Uptown & Oak Lawn Parties and Receptions

Dark Side of the Rainbow

Texas Theatre : 9:00 p.m. August 22

Between concerts the entertainment options for ancient Dallas stoners were frequently limited to midnight movies and the occasional laser light show at the planetarium. Those nostalgic for simpler times -or curious about the ways of their ancestors- can dig out their jean jackets, scrape the... More >>

Design District Market

Dallas Contemporary : 12:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. August 23

As a species, we’ve made a lot of adaptations so we can deal with summer. Take the sno-cone, for example, and cut-off shorts and “Bachelorette in Paradise.” And while these things are all pretty fantastic (well, most of these things), they cannot ever equal the greatness of a... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Cultural Events

Somebody's Darling

Trees : 7:00 p.m. August 23

Led by the terrifically talented Amber Farris, Somebody’s Darling are out on tour in support the recently released Adult Roommates. Farris’ Janis Joplin-like vocals have always been the band’s focal point, but Roommates finds the band investigating all sorts of interesting... More >>

Gala of the Royal Horses

American Airlines Center : 7:30 p.m. August 23

Horses haven't had the best PR when it comes to maintaining status as an effective mode of transportation. We have so many infinitely better ways of getting from Point A to Point B: cars, bicycles, planes, trains, pogo sticks. Hell, we even have machines that can replace walking. This means... More >>

Uptown & Oak Lawn Family Events


Centraltrak : 8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. August 23

Art can't talk to you. But wouldn't that be one hell of a conversation? Just think of Mona Lisa's stories or the things Duchamp's Fountain has seen. This idea of one-sided dialogue has become bothersome to Liberian-born artist Christopher Blay – currently in residence at CentralTrak.... More >>

Art Deco Society: The Wizard of Oz

Texas Theatre : 8:30 p.m. August 23

1961 was a great year for wine. 1983 saw major advances in medical science, including the discovery of the AIDS virus. And 2013—well, it was a banner year for celebrity babies (North West, y’all!). Some years, the planets align and good things happen in clusters. Way back in 1939,... More >>

The Hottest Half

Community Beer Company : 7:30 a.m. August 24

Running outside in August is not recommended by doctors. If I remember right, it has something to do with ozone levels, allergens, and....oh,yeah... the heat. But if you feel setting common sense aside or need to punish yourself for something, then Community Beer Company's got your back. At... More >>

One Direction

AT&T Stadium : 7:00 p.m. August 24

After failed attempts at a solo career via the U.K.’s “The X Factor,” judge Simon Cowell decided these five young Brits (actually four; one is Irish) could be bigger and better as a group. And they are. Since One Direction’s inception, young girls -- probably some of... More >>

Arlington Music

Architect and Architectress

Dallas Center for Architecture : 6:00 p.m. August 25

I'll let you in on a bit of semantics. When you read the word “intimate,” the writer actually means really freaking small. When you read the word “high brow,” the writer means pedantic and probably boring. And when a calendar editor tells you the best thing to do on a... More >>

Uptown & Oak Lawn Activism

Fantasy Football Draft Party

Rahr & Sons Brewery : 6:30 p.m. August 26

What is it about fantasy football that inspires such manic fanaticism? Each year, when it’s time for our fantasy football draft we drop everything, gather in front of our computers, often in groups, naturally, and enter into the fantasy world of fantasy football. Right. Welcome to the... More >>

There was always a group of girls in the back of the school bus that sat together and sang Broadway tunes.

NorthPark Center : 10:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 9

I can think of no better place to exhibit an installation commenting on the socio-political experience of immigration than in the middle of NorthPark Center between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom near Gucci, TOD’S, Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace. Brooklyn-based Chilean artist Iván... 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 >>

RE Gallery : 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until September 6

Mark Floods loves him. He loves him so much he curated his work into a group show in New York called, Mark Flood Resents. If that’s not reason enough to get yourself to RE Gallery on Saturday for the opening of Alika Herreshoff’s first solo show in Dallas, then I don’t know... 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 >>

Kirk Hopper Fine Art : 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until September 13

Before computers gave us the ability to copy paste, it was happening in real life. This is how most technology comes to exist: expediting the human experience. But some artists resist the shortcuts, instead using their hands to copy paste things into collages. Kirk Hopper Fine Art is letting... More >>
