Du Chau's The Color of My Memory at Kirk Hopper -- We've been waiting a solid year for this show by local sculpture and ceramic arts educator Du Chau. And we got even more excited when we heard that he's dipping away from his more malleable medium to do silkscreened images for this center stage show at Hopper. Du Chau's subjects are his own shattered memories of the Vietnam War, and he'll present them as they exist still, right down to the hue.

WHO IS BOZO TEXINO? A Film by Bill Daniel
-- You'll want to scoot over to Fort Worth to hop on this party train, which features poetry by local artistic madman Bruce Lee Webb, music by Shiny Around the Edges and Night Game Cult and most importantly, a documentary about hobo train graffiti, shot by filmmaker Bill Daniel. He'll be in attendance, so you can ask him everything you've ever wanted to know about canned beans, harmonicas and high stakes graffiti.

Ash Saturdays
-- Those Green Bandana kids have been helping Dallas have loads of fun during the New Year transition, and Saturday's bash closes out the good times series. This BYOB rager goes until 4 a.m. with music by Spencer Kenney, Paramecium, Light Horse Harry and Zorah's Taylor Effin Cleveland, as well as loads of art and the artists who birthed it. But you would have gone anyway, because Green Bandana promised us three magic words "Projections! Lasers! Bonfire!" Um, yes -- I want all of that.

First Saturday at the Nasher -- You love free. You love art. You must really be crushing on First Saturday at the Nasher, which gives everyone complimentary access to this amazing space as well as hands-on activities and loads of educational programming. Go enjoy the best of what we have and make art a part of your afternoon.

Sunday 1.6

Girls of the Church 2013 Calendar Release Party
-- Smokin' hot ladies? Check. Goth clothes? Check. Collectable calendar so that enjoyment can be prolonged throughout 2013? Yes, it's got that too. See the sexiest vinyl vixens able to be conjured in Dallas at the Girls of the Church 2013 Calendar release party Sunday night. You're welcome.
North Texas Comic Book Show -- Hulk SMASH poses politely with you in photos at this celebration of the nerdly arts, which runs all weekend long. You can browse for your "need it" stack in the comic crates, dig for lost memorabilia and resist the urge to tickle Lou Ferrigno.
