Mississippi Goddamn

South Dallas Cultural Center : 8:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat. until March 8; 3:00 p.m. every Sun. until March 8

A classic and searing Nina Simone song from 1964 summed up the civil rights struggles in the Deep South pretty succinctly: “Alabama's got me so upset, Tennessee's made me lose my rest, and everybody knows about Mississippi, goddamn.” Local playwright Jonathan Norton riffs on... More >>

Fair Park Theater - Small, Theater


Kalita Humphreys Theater : 8:00 p.m. March 6; 7:30 p.m. March 8; 7:30 p.m. March 12; 8:00 p.m. March 13; 7:30 p.m. March 14; 7:30 p.m. March 18; 2:00 p.m. March 21; 7:30 p.m. March 24; 7:30 p.m. March 26; 7:30 p.m. March 29

There's no way to sugarcoat it: Medea ain’t pretty. The ancient Greek tale of domestic horror has never been for the faint of heart. It stunned playwright Euripides’ contemporaries when it was first produced in ancient Greece, and those people weren’t easy to shock. The... More >>

Sherlock Holmes at the Perot

Perot Museum of Nature and Science : 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 10

Are you one of those a-holes who cracks the case before the detectives on the show and then ruins it for everyone else by shouting, “Oh, come on, it’s clearly the shifty chimney sweep?” First of all, you’re an a-hole. We covered that. But second of all, your time has... More >>

Who’s Afraid of Chuck and George?

Centraltrak : 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Sat. until April 4

Think of Who’s Afraid of Chuck and George as a roast on canvas, where — rather than having insults hurled at them — two artists will be lovingly caricatured by friends and fellow artists. In fact, nearly a hundred contributions will line the walls of CentralTrak, the UT Dallas... More >>

Soundwaves at Sunset

Sunset Lounge : 8:00 p.m. every Tue.

There are plenty of ways for you to get the club going up on a Tuesday in North Texas. One of the many ways involves turning up with DJ Simon Phoenix, who is a venerable poet, and -topic, one of Dallas’ meanest MCs, taking turns on the ones and twos at Sunset Lounge. The musical stylings... More >>

Tornado Alley 3d

Perot Museum of Nature and Science : 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 21

Does the name TIV ring a bell? If it does, you’re probably a meteorology buff or at least a fan of Storm Chasers, the Discovery Channel show in which Sean Casey and his Tornado Intercept Vehicle hunt twisters in Tornado Alley. Casey is about to chase a little closer to home, as the Perot... More >>

Texas Hold 'em Tournament

Trinity Hall Irish Pub : 7:15 p.m. every Mon.

Someone once said that if you're playing “a friendly game of poker” then you're really not playing poker at all. Poker is a game of deception, psychological manipulation and occasional cruelty. It's about fleecing your fellow man. Well, let's just hope the Mr. Grumpy Poker Puss who... More >>

Family Friendly Comedy Show

Dallas Comedy House : 6:00 p.m. every Sat.

Now that the holidays are coming up, that means the little ones will actually be home and you’ll have to find stuff to do together if you don’t want them turning your furniture into jungle gyms or your new HD TV into a dry-erase board. Unfortunately, there aren’t many... More >>

Downtown & Deep Ellum Comedy

Lisa Lampanelli

Majestic Theatre : 8:00 p.m. March 7

No one who goes to a Lisa Lampanelli show has the right to complain that they were offended by her material. Her numerous TV specials offer plenty of warnings that her material isn’t for sensitive viewers or people who enjoy writing angry letters to PR people. That would be like Dorothy... More >>

For Real

Ro2 Art Downtown : 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until March 8

Your eyeballs are working hard. As you read this they are processing and interpreting symbols to send to your brain. But how often do you consider your own observational power? It's something that artists of all varieties dwell upon and then render into their work. For the next exhibition, Ro2... More >>

"This Land is Your Land"

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 >>

Lancaster/ Balch Springs Arts

Caroline Mousseau

Cydonia Gallery : 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. March 6; 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. from March 11 until April 3

A recent New Yorker review of a contemporary painting show at the MoMA posed the question, “Is There Anything Left to Paint?” In some ways rhetorical, in others sobering. A painter working today wrestles with a medium centuries old, struggling to say something new. Something that... More >>

Paul Slavens and Friends

Dan's Silverleaf : 10:00 p.m. every Mon.

Paul Slavens is a local legend. He was the frontman of the late 80s and early 90s outfit, Ten Hands. He’s a renowned radio host at KXT 91.7 FM as well. He also does this kooky little thing at Dan’s Silver Leaf in Denton every Monday. He takes song title suggestions from people and... More >>

The Wartime Escape

The Dallas Holocaust Musuem and Center for Education and Tolerance : 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri. until June 20; 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Sat., Sun. until June 20

Curious George is a frequent bedtime player in my house, where the little ones love his tales of marginally acceptable monkey behavior. But behind the hijinks is an even more fascinating backstory, which begins in a place without many happy endings. His creators, Margaret and H.A. Rey, were... More >>

Dallas Arts District Spring break

Downtown Dallas Arts District : 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. March 7

For kids, spring break is a time of possibility: a week respite from the drudgery of homework and bedtime routines. It's a rallying cry for those whose spirits have been dampened by the cold days of February — a harbinger of fun that doesn't concern itself with layers of puffy, immovable... More >>

John Mellencamp

McFarlin Auditorium : 7:30 p.m. March 7

I was at a large event in Indianapolis a few years ago and my brother suggested that we were in the “most white trash crowd” we had ever been in. It seemed plausible, but I was skeptical. Then suddenly, John Mellencamp came up on the big screen in that Indianapolis auditorium. No,... More >>

Park Cities Music

Jeff Gibbons & Jesse Morgan Barnett

The Goss-Michael Foundation : 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri. until March 6

It's a rare opportunity to see two of the smartest artists working in Dallas in the same venue. Which is why you'll want to head to the Goss Michael Foundation's exhibition openings from 6-8 p.m. Friday. Jesse Morgan Barnett mines his own life to create abstract sculptural installations. He...

Bo Burnham

Majestic Theatre : 8:00 p.m. March 6

Bo Burnham taped his first of two Comedy Central specials four days after his 18th birthday. Four days after turning 18. That made him the youngest performer to tape a Comedy Central special and therefore public enemy number one to my former high school self. Then I watched his stand-up and... More >>

Master Pancake: 50 Shades of Gray

Alamo Drafthouse : 5:00 p.m. March 8

Any book-turned-movie that originated as Twilight fanfiction has got to be laughable. And probably not intentionally. Fifty Shades of Grey has done way more than give middle-aged women something to obsess over. It’s inspired a string of celebrity readings, plenty of parodies and a ton of... More >>

Richardson & Vicinity Film - Picks, Film

Pub Quiz At Ten Bells Tavern

Ten Bells Tavern : 8:00 p.m. every Wed.

You’ve never laughed this much during a round of trivia. Trust. Bookended by stand-up sets from local comedians, Trivia at Ten Bells Tavern is run by two hosts, who keep a lively banter throughout the evening, riffing on the questions, the contestants, and anything else that strikes their...

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Games

Mavis Staples

The Kessler Theater : 7:00 p.m. March 8

Go see Mavis Staples play. Go. See. Mavis. Staples. Play. GO SEE MAVIS STAPLES PLAY. I’ll say it a fourth time if you didn’t get the point. You should gather up all of your friends and family and go to The Kessler Theater to see Mavis Staples perform. I’m not going to sit here... More >>

Oak Cliff & South Dallas Music


1919 Hemphill : 7:00 p.m. March 9

This is an anomaly of sorts. 1919 Hemphill in Fort Worth is known for putting on shows with rowdy punk and hardcore bands. Biographies is a bit more plush in sounds and sensibilities. You most likely won’t catch a knee to the throat for the hell of it here. Out of Denton, Biographies is a... More >>

Fort Worth Music

Kinky Boots

Music Hall at Fair Park : 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until March 7; 1:30 p.m. every Sat., Sun. until March 8

Kinky Boots is a Tony-winning Broadway musical with book by Harvey Fierstein, that raspy-voiced effer whose writing in all gold, baby, gold, and score by Cyndi Lauper, which is like double gold. Top it off with the story of the unlikely friendship between Charlie Price, a struggling shoe... More >>

Wine Walk

Kettle Art Gallery : 5:00 p.m. every third week Thu.

The businesses located on Main Street in Deep Ellum open their doors every third Thursday evening for Wine Walk. It’s the perfect event for the art lover whose resveratrol levels could use a little pick-me-up. For $5 you get a specially designed wine glass which will be topped off as you... More >>
