13 Awesome Things To Do in Dallas This Weekend, August 8 to 11
Is that a swim-up bar?! Swoon. Don't miss Dallas Contemporary's fashionable dumpster pool. (See Saturday)
Performance art Double-up at the DMA -- It's a great night to immerse yourself in performance art when two events happen simultaneously at the DMA. In one wing, PerformanceSW and Apophenia Underground bring a panel/performance combo. In another, local body mover/shaker Danielle Georgiou rips through I hate it when a book smells bad. Both go from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Men on the Verge of a His-Panic Breakdown -- It's a humorous collection of monologues that's managed to hold tough and relevant for 20 years. Sample that shelf life on opening night.
Polyester with "Odorama" and themed After Party at Texas Theatre -- Because John Waters loves gimmicks and Texas Theatre loves you, the little art house that could shows Polyester as it was meant to be smelled: with scratch-and-sniff "Odorama" cards. Catch it on Thursday and Friday nights. Of course, Friday's screening kicks out to a pencilstache-rich lobby for an afterparty tribute to the King of sleaze, John Waters.
Post Tenebras Lux at Texas Theatre -- I won't lie to you: this is one of the oddest, most divisive films of the year. It isn't a "safe programming bet," especially for a one-screen cinema. And still, Texas Theatre offers it on Friday and Sunday so that you won't be left out of the global argument Post Tenebras Lux has spurred. Thank 'em by buying a ticket and a beer.
Kathy Griffin -- She's sassy. She's brassy. She'll dish for days. Griffin gal pals around with you on Friday night at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie.
