Vanilla Ice, the Ninja Turtles, Tone-Loc... it was like the '90s had never died over at South Side Ballroom on Saturday night, with a crowd-funded party taking everyone back twenty years. Photographer Ed Steele was too busy watching Star Trek in the '90s, but he went to the party for us anyway....
We're not sure what RiFF RaFF, Dorrough, and Mike Jones were doing at Cowboys in Arlington, but they seemed happy enough, as did the ginormous crowd. Photographer Mike Brooks, who deserves at least three medals, braved the youths and the rap.
The steaming hot Dallas Burlesque Festival climaxed with the Saturday night performance that included the burlesque debut of Claire Sinclair, Playboy's 2011 Playmate of the Year. Danny Hurley was the man who got the not-terrible job of documenting the night.
Deep Ellum got a taste of Mardi Gras this weekend in the best possible way. In order to mark the occasion, Commerce Street's The Free Man Cajun Cafe organized a proper New Orleans second line horn parade that circled the neighborhood. RHOMBI SURVIVOR was on the scene.
Photographer Ed Steele spent the whole weekend outside, beautiful as it was, as the weather miraculously held out for a Denton festival. The Thin Line film and music festival held myriad delights, and his attempts to capture them all are documented here.
Denton's lovely little festival kicked off on Thursday to gorgeous weather and dozens of big-name locals, including the delectable Sam Lao. Photographer Ed Steele was so affected by the whole thing he's spent all of today speaking a different language.
Winter is over, we hope, and photographer Catherine Downes spent it traveling the frozen wastes of Dallas, photographing these cocktails for you. You should be very grateful to her. All of these cocktails are still available, though, despite this sudden mild weather.
