Thursday Morning Roundup

Today in the roundup: DMA extends Gaultier hours, SXSW announces film lineup and Fort Worth gets a recording studio.


PACKING ‘EM IN: When I visited the Dallas Museum of Art the other day for a lunch meeting, I saw something at the museum I’d never seen before in all my trips there: the very end of the parking garage. And this was at noon. On a Tuesday. The reason, of course, is that people are still turning out in droves for “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk.” The show closes this next weekend, so the crowds will probably only increase. But there is good news – the museum has extended the exhibition’s hours, keeping it open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. next Friday-Sunday (Feb. 10-12).

SXSW FILM: The complete lineup for the film portion of SXSW has been released. Predictably, the revamped 21 Jump Street will premiere there, as will documentaries about everyone from Jeffrey Dahmer to Ginger Baker. But I’m already lining up for America’s Parking Lot, which follows two die-hard Cowboys fans in the last year of Texas Stadium.

FORT WORTH’S NEW STUDIO: Downtown Fort Worth is getting a cool new addition – a recording studio. The space is the brainchild of Will Hunt, a producer who’s worked with everyone from Evanescence to Burning Hotels. Hunt tells fwweekly.com the decision was pretty simple – he and his wife have lived in the city since 2004, and this just another way of putting down deeper roots. The space should be open this summer.
