Art&Seek Plans Your Week

by Nilufer Arsala 10 Oct 2011 11:17 AM

On the schedule this week: A rock icon, Chinese acrobats and one giant taco.


Happy Columbus Day! To celebrate, why not go see some Chinese acrobats at Bass Performance Hall? If that’s not your bag, then head to the South Dallas Cultural Center for a huge concert featuring hip–hop, blues, R&B and jazz acts. All of the proceeds will go towards refurbishing the cultural center’s Virtual Sound Lab. Celebrating for a good cause is one of my favorite things.

On the live music front, Plain White T’s perform at the House of Blues, its time again for The Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival and Roger Daltrey Performs The Who’s Tommy at the Verizon. I wonder if the Acid Queen will show up? At least we know a pinball wizard will.

There are some interesting things going on in theater this week also. TeCo Theatrical Productions performs Real Women Have Curves (we really do!), and you can catch Sense and Sensibility at Fort Worth Community Arts Center. We are getting closer to Halloween, though, which means that productions like Evil Dead: The Musical are coming out of hiding. Mwaaahahaha.

Last week, I told you to look forward to tacos (mmmm… tacos). This is why. The Canstruction Art Show and Competition is in full swing, so stop by North East Mall in Hurst to see what artists, engineers and architects have built out of canned and boxed food. Then vote for your favorite. I was pretty amazed that they built this:
