CEO Barclay Berdan had been on the job for less than a month when the deadly virus struck Presbyterian hospital.
November saw the reissue of Cursive’s 2003 album, The Ugly Organ, a landmark recording released on Omaha, Nebraska’s influential imprint Saddle Creek Records. The LP served as a candid discourse on the emotional landscape of an empty and meandering sexual relationship. While akin to the self-loathing material of their peers, Cursive expressed more realized and mature episodes of melodrama. The Ugly Organ will be performed here in its entirety, which is sure to please longtime fans.
This joint venture between the Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture ponders the state of the city along thematic parameters that sound like they’re lifted straight from The Wire: education, politics, innovation, culture, and the physical city. Past events have hosted media superstars such as Jim Lehrer and David Brooks. This time it’s Columbia University’s Vishaan Chakrabarti, the award-winning architect responsible for such enormous projects as the reconstruction of post-9/11 Manhattan, as well as New York’s beloved High Line park. Needless to say, he probably has some advice for Dallas.
