Need weekend plans? We have you covered!
Happy birthday Bowie
David Bowie would have turned 72 years old on Jan. 8, and two Dallas theaters are throwing parties in the late singer's honor. Friday night, the Granada Theater hosts a Birthday Bash with cover band Thin White Dukes for concert chock full of classic Bowie tunes. The Smiths tribute band Panic open the show and tickets start at $12.
Also Friday, the Texas Theatre is screening Nicolas Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth, starring David Bowie, at 8 p.m. After the movie, there will be a party in the movie theater lobby bar, complete with Bowie karaoke. Tickets to that cost $10.75.
If you're looking at your wallet thinking, "new year, new budget," there are some free ways to have fun this weekend. Saturday, the Nasher Sculpture Center in downtown Dallas is offering free admission as part of its Free First Saturday series. Stop by between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. to check out the exhibit halls and garden, as well as partake in art and crafts, love music and an art chat, which starts at 11:30 a.m.
On Sunday, BrainDead Brewing in Deep Ellum is hosting Sunday Funny Funday, which is a stand-up comedy show. That kicks off at 8 p.m. and is also a series, so make a mental note: you can catch free comedy the first Sunday of every month here. The beers, though, will cost you.
If you're a fan of both the symphony and pop band Hanson, this next event is for you. The trio of melodic brothers comes to the Bass Performance Hall on Saturday for a special concert called Hanson String Theory. And it's just what it sounds like -- the group is expected to play their hits backed by the power of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. Tickets start at $75.
Tiney Ricciardi offers her weekend event picks every Thursday at 7:40 a.m. on KLIF-AM (570).
