11 Awesome Things To Do In Dallas This Weekend, January 10 to 12

This amazing rap montage is just a swig from the found bottle. Suck the rest down on Saturday when Found Magazine the Found Footage Festival and A/V Geeks unite to battle for scavenger bragging rights at Texas Theatre.

This weekend the city activates, flowing with new energy. Gallery and art openings spark throughout Dallas. Nerdism erupts when the first North Texas Comic Book Comic Con toasts subculture figureheads and the Dallas Symphony plays the music of Pixar. Colin Quinn materializes from his Twitter alterpersona for Unconstitutional at the Wyly. And all of your favorite artifact scavengers -- Found Magazine, the Found Footage Festival and A/V Geeks -- battle for bragging rights and peer group affection at Texas Theatre.

Oh, there's more: Avenue Q dirties up a new street, the Dallas Safari Club dusts off the taxidermy and Buster Keaton gets a silent film resurrection. And it's all happening in closer proximity than your latest Tinder match, so no excuses.

Click the links for more details and share this list with your crew. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one getting bounced off Avenue Q.)

Friday, 1.10
