Social butterflies, prepare to have your wings atwitter with entertainment options aplenty in store this week. Get your culture on with a trip to the museum, sip on a sugary sweet serenade from a “powerpop” boy band and make sure to leave room for your daily requirement of artsy circus acts too.
Art Into Rock
Thursday, November 8 (Tonight), 5 – 8 p.m.
How do we sum this up? Phil Collins (the artist, not the pop singer) has a video exhibition at the DMA called “the world won’t listen.” From what we can gather, it’s a bunch of tunes from 80s crooners The Smiths as performed karaoke-style by people from Columbia, Turkey and Indonesia. Remember, art is subjective. To kick it off there’s a DJ, cocktails and a lecture by British music critic Simon Reynolds. You feel fancy just reading about it, huh?
Dallas Museum of Art
1717 North Harwood
Hellogoodbye in Concert
Saturday, November 10, 6 p.m.
Any band that dresses like fruit and uses the word “radtastic” to describe their album gets gold stars in our book. Disheveled hair, check; boyish charm, check; bubblegum lyrics, check – we’re there.
1135 South Lamar
Voices of Change
Sunday, November 11, 7:30 p.m.
Chamber music can be so, hmm, dated. Voices of Change gives music a kick in the pop culture keister. Tonight’s offering is a jazz-fusion concert with composer Kevin Hanlon and others.
Contemporary Theater of Dallas
5601 Sears Street
Monday, November 12, 7:30 p.m.
Think of it as a date with Cirque Du Soleil’s quirky cousin. He may not have the same great looks, but he has a very sweet personality. And when you see how flexible he is, a repeat performance might be considered.
Irving Arts Center
3333 N. Macarthur Blvd.
Tickets $40 and up
Laser Spectacular Featuring the Music of Pink Floyd
Tickets are on sale now. Show is January 4.
Lasers, they aren’t just for hair removal anymore. It’s freedom rock and they’re turnin’ it up, man. You secretly know all the words to “The Wall” so you might as well find comfort in a room full of others with the same dirty little secret.
