Her Voice Doesn't Lie

Watch out, Shakira: Kathryn Evans is in the house. And I hear she's got a mean set of pipes. Sure, you're great at shaking your hips in the desert, and you do a spot-on impression of Kermit the Frog. But Kathryn's renditions of those old-school 19th-century Spanish hits are off the chain. Plus, her guitarist is smokin' hot. At 5 p.m. this Thursday, see Music of the Spanish World (a part of the Spring Semester Faculty at Five series) in the Jonsson Performance Hall on the UTD campus at 800 W. Campbell Road (in Richardson). Kathryn Evans (associate dean for the arts in the School of Arts and Humanities) and Enric Madriguera (director of guitar studies) will perform. Tickets will cost you zilch. Nada. Cero. Call 972-883-2111 or visit ah.utdallas.edu.
Thu., Jan. 18, 5 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.
