Hear The People Sing in Fort Worth Tonight.

While today might not be the most eventful day we've ever seen, it's a pretty good kickoff for the rest of the week to come. For instance? Well, the Dallas Video Fest doesn't start until tomorrow, but if you check out the Omani Hotel tomorrow night, you'll get to experience the level of innovation that this year's visual artists have. Plus, Les Miserables is still playing at Bass Performance Hall and the Texas Theater will be showing a very Texas-y documentary starring James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor and the town of Marfa, Texas.

Expanded Cinema at the Omni Dallas Hotel
Dallas Video Fest doesn't kick off untul tomorrow, but, for the opening celebration tonight, the artists are doing something really cool. They'll be taking control of the lighting at the Omni Hotel, while simultaneously broadcasting a soundtrack that they made on KXT for a mesh of visual and audio art.

Les Miserables at Bass Performance Hall
The famous epic (one of the few times this word actually applies) by Victor Hugo was has taken many form, but one of the most long-lasting ones has been the musical. Here, I would attempt to describe the plot of the play, but after spending about 10 minutes on Wikipedia I just got this: Everybody dies. It's a death play. Bring your hankies.

The Longshots, American Sharks and Spider Friends at Lola's
Also billed as the “Black and Blue Ball,” Lola's Saloon will tonight become the temporary home of garage heathens The Longshots, along with American Sharks and Spider Friends.

Return to Giant at Texas Theater
Hey, did you know that Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean and Rock Hudson lived in Marfa, Texas, for a few months while filming the 1955 movie, Giant? This documentary chronicles that event, as well as the perspective of the local residents while their town is being invaded by Hollywood. Stay after the documentary to participate in a Q&A held by the filmmaker, Kirby Warnock.
