Dance With the Stars at Decks in the Park, Make an Impression With Frank Caliendo or Squanch Your Friends at Twilite Fort Worth.
According to new research out of the University of Toronto, people with “thick, well-groomed” eyebrows are seen by others as “rather narcissistic.” And the thicker and more distinct the brows, the more self-centered the person, say these experts.
So, depending on how you want to be seen tonight, you might want to do a little grooming before heading out tonight.
In an unrelated study that never actually took place, imaginary science persons determined that consulting Central Track before making one’s evening plans makes a person seem “smart, good-looking and extremely cool.” — Cory Graves

Modern Music: Helena Deland at The Modern
After throwing its second-annual Fortress Festival in May, and then the June 6 pre-opening party for the Takashi Murakami exhibit at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (which, at $150 a head, gave attendees an early look at the show, early access to the gift shop and a party featuring DJ sets from A-Trak and Sober, as well as a dance show from the acclaimed Jabbawockeez), the team at Fortress Presents says it’s now going to make a concerted effort toward bringing events to Fort Worth — and eventually across all of North Texas — throughout the calendar year. In addition to already confirming a 2019 version of Fortress Festival, this effort is initially manifesting itself in the form of a new music series going down this summer at The Modern called, rather simply, Modern Music. The monthly series kicks off today with a set from Helena Deland, followed by a July 19 date from Gingger Shankar and an August 16 showcase with Zhang Hungtai. — Pete Freedman

Shakespeare in the Park: The Taming of the Shrew at Samuell Grand Park
Tucked away off of I-30, there’s a park with a small amphitheater, the Samuel Grand Amphitheater. During the summer months, Shakespeare Dallas puts on two shows in the park. This year, they take on the classic, The Comedy of Errors, and The Taming of the Shrew. A recent show we attended began at 8:15, as the sun was setting behind the trees. The amphitheater allows for food and adult beverages (no liquor) to be brought in, so it’s the perfect date night or gathering with a group of friends. Just bring a blanket or your lawn chairs, or you can even rent chairs there, and you can feast on finger foods and beverages before the show. — Angela Jones
