Do It

You: a gumshoe hunting a robber chick in a yellow coat. Them: Rockapella, the a cappella group that made the intro music so good. You remember them from Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (Who, by the way, was the O.G. of putting the Miss in misdemeanor.) But where are they now? Over the last 18 years, Rockapella has released 20 albums. They're huge in Japan. And Friday, they perform at Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Parkway. If you're an enrolled student or a teacher you're invited to a pre-show "Back to School Special" meet and greet, where you can ask them questions such as: "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?" (Someone please ask that.) The rock starts a-pella-ing at 8:30 p.m, with the meeting and greeting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $24 to $49. Call 214-373-8000, visit ticketmaster.com or filch tickets from Patty Larceny.
Fri., Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m.
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
