13 Awesome Things to Do in Dallas This Weekend: April 25 to 28
So ... this will be happening in a Waxahachie art gallery on Sunday.
But wait, there's more!!! An adorable Denton couple will open their home for an experimental theater festival, two big-name comedians grab the Majestic's stage, there's a course in kink at the Bondage Expo and a celebration of spook -- with a hearse parade -- at HauntCon. How can anyone be bored? In the span of four days Dallas can tie you up, make you laugh, fill your eyes and ears with off-kilter art and music and then scare the shit out of you.
Play nice and share this list with your gang, then click on the event titles for more information. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one Teen Wolf surfing on the hearse parade.)
Not Waiting for Permission - One thing Dallas' art circles do extremely well is talk about Dallas' art circles. We gotta. Otherwise we wind up with an unmowed art yard, so to speak. Tonight's "Not Waiting for Permission" focuses on how, and in what direction, we should grow this thing.
Bill Burr - He leaves his Breaking Bad persona at home to pop by the Majestic for a stand-up set.
Burlesque Hall of Fame - Rising to the top of the burlesque world takes guts. And if you hold those guts in your heaving bosom, all the better. See who's, in fact, owning it during this seductive night at the Kessler.

Lisa Lampanelli - She's bold. She's brassy. She'll roast you faster than a 3-year-old joint dipped in acetone. What can I say? The lady likes it raw.
Bondage Expo - Speaking of raw, this weekend marks Dallas' first ever Bondage Expo, and attending isn't cheap. (That's probably to reduce the lookie-loo, frat-boy element.) Still, if you've ever been curious about kink, mummification or how to achieve the perfect hogtie, this is where you should be.
Fly by Night - Just a short drive away from the bondage expo is Fly by Night, the charming and highly anticipated new musical about romance during a blackout. It's Tiger be Still playwright Kim Rosenstock's new one, and it takes over the Kalita Humphreys for the next few weeks.
