Shake Your Fist with Telegraph Canyon Tonight.
So, turns out we didn't prove too good at the whole sticking-to-that-New-Year's-gym-routine thing. Maybe a new resolution would prove easier to stick to — like a moratorium on the phrase “hump day,” perhaps?
Besides, Wednesdays in this town are always so jam-packed with events on the reg, Wednesdays have become less the hump we're trying to get over to coast into the weekend's parties, and more one of the days we look forward to seeing.
Don't believe us? See below for just a few examples of what we're talking about.
Deb Doing Dallas' birthday celebration at The Dram
You know and love her. Well, you know of her at least. The Observer's Overserved columnist and the co-host of The Ladies Room on The Indieverse celebrates another year of semi-secretly surveying Dallas' nightlife scene and dishing out the low-down on the city's best parties tonight — and, y'know, getting a year older in real life, too. Tonight's throwdown at The Dram will feature champagne specials and guest visits in Blake Ward's DJ booth from the likes of Sarah Jaffe, Zhora's Taylor Rea, and even Ms. Deb herself.
Telegraph Canyon, Glossary and Daniel Markham at Dan's Silverleaf
Telegraph Canyon hasn't put out a record since 2009's long-adored The Tide and the Current, but that fact has done little to deter area fans, who still tend to pack their shows out regularly. They band's currently on tour with Tennessee's Glossary, who are supporting their 2011 album Long Live All of Us. On the other hand, Daniel Markham seems to be perpetually recording something new. His latest effort, currently being produced by RTB2's Grady Don Sandlin, will be one to watch out for in the coming months.
Partyfest at Dallas Market Hall
We were going to resolve to do a lot of different things this New Year, but we ended up scratching most of our ideas — smoking and drinking less, eating better, losing weight, going to bed earlier, etc. — to just keep sticking to partying. So we're definitely hitting up Partyfest tonight to learn about all the latest party innovations and new techniques for taking our parties to the next level.
imPRESS art exhibit at Frisco Art Gallery
Whether folks realize it, they experience the work of fine printmakers every day. From T-shirts to concert posters to more recognized forms of art, it's everywhere we turn. Tonight in Frisco, the opening exhibition to this juried printmaking exhibit of aquatints, monotypes, lithographs, etchings, woodcuts, linocuts, engravings and screenprints will also feature a talk by Amy Carter-Ishmael.
