Pop culture has groomed a generation that's awestruck with music videos.

Barry Whistler Gallery : 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until April 25

Primary colors might get a bad rap. The newest show at Barry Whistler Gallery was inspired by a piece at the National Galerie in Berlin and the viewing of Barnett Newman’s “Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Blue IV, 1969-70.” It makes a splendid argument for the continued... More >>

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.

Oral Fixation: Happy Camper

Texas Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 22

All My Sons

WaterTower Theatre : 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until May 10; 2:00 p.m. every Sun. until May 10; 7:30 p.m. April 23

I've always thought that Arthur Miller's All My Sons sounds like a soap opera. Certainly there is plenty of familial conflict in this post-World War II drama, but obviously the playwright brings a bit more sophistication to the dialogue than you'd find in your grandmother's... More >>

Addison Theater

Lone Star Portraits

Amon Carter Museum : 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 17

Is there something that makes a Texan unique? Something perhaps that can be drawn in the portrait? Is it a crooked smile fashioned from years of drawing out vowels? Or a bowed legs shaped by cowboy boots? What about a style of Texas portraiture? Perhaps the artists here all use similar light or... More >>

Earlie Hudnall, Jr.

Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery : 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 9

Once you’ve seen “Hip Hop, 1993” by Earlie Hudnall, Jr., it’s hard to clear it from your brain. Maybe you can forget the glowing, slight-but-strong frame bent in the most “Yeah, what” body language. It’s the hole-boring eyes that know way too much for... More >>

Justyna Gorowska: FWJG

Cydonia Gallery : 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 8

Big Gus & The Swampadelic

The Free Man : 7:00 p.m. every Mon.

In 2011, the Dallas Observer awarded "Big Gus" Samuelson the trophy for Best DJ. Samuelson does have an impeccable ear for great tunes and his low, Southern Barry White-ish speaking voice helps him excel in that realm on KHYI-FM 95.3. For years now, however, he has fronted one hell of a band,... More >>

This is the little show that can't be ignored.

RC & the Gritz, DJ Jay Clipp

The Prophet Bar : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.

Every week, RC & the Gritz hit the Prophet Bar for a jazz tinged jam session that daps, pounds, and nods to hip-hop, r&b, and funk. The band makes it look so effortless and easy every time, just as a pro should. But, it’s no wonder they’re so great, they’re Erykah Badu’s... More >>

Father John Misty

Granada Theater : 7:00 p.m. April 22

He's not J. Tillman anymore, but the dude behind the music will always be the same.

He has only released two albums -- Fear Fun and I Love You, Honeybear -- each... More >>

If you're having trouble nailing down exactly what local playwright Brigham Mosley’s Vultures is about, you’re not alone. But the SMU grad and prolific dramatist seemingly wants it that way; the play is touted as a mysterious surprise. And who doesn’t like surprises? There are... More >>
