Keep Going With The Revivalists At House Of Blues, Celebrate Superman’s 80th Birthday At Renner Frankford Library And Light A Trick Candle With Nina Diaz At Three Links.
A Deep Ellum fixture is at risk of losing its home.
As we wrote about yesterday, Dallas Comedy House is currently embroiled in a battle with an Austin-based ownership group called Black Market Investments. BMI, per DCH owner Amanda Austin, is trying to void the comedy house’s remaining two lease years by claiming that DCH defaulted on its lease.
It’s a developing situation, but for now, Austin says she and her crew are going to try and hold onto their home in Deep Ellum and keep putting on shows until they hear otherwise.
So yeah, DCH still has activities planned (including tonight), which you can find here. And if comedy isn’t what you’re feeling tonight, then luckily for you we have a whole bunch of cool stuff listed below that you can get up to tonight. –– Obed Manuel
