Things to Do

Things To Do In Dallas This Week: March 20-23

Duran Duran, the Dallas Comedy Festival, Louie Anderson, and so much more.

Monday (03/20)

The Grammy-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth performs at SMU’s Caruth Auditorium.

The swaggering rock trio Cherry Glazerr plays Three Links.

Tuesday (03/21)

Duran Duran, the MTV idols behind “Rio” and “Hungry Like The Wolf,” prove they still know how to play — and look good doing it — at the Music Hall at Fair Park.

Enjoy the final spasms of St. Patrick’s Day at House of Blues with a performance by Flogging Molly, the Celtic rock band whose “Shipping Up To Boston” is inescapable at times like these.

Wednesday (03/22)

The very funny James Adomian headlines the Dallas Comedy Festival, which gets underway Wednesday night at the Dallas Comedy House and commences four days of stand-up, improv, and sketch from local yuck monkeys and visiting comedians.

Now that spring break is over, maybe the lines at the DMA’s blockbuster Mexico 1900-1950 exhibition will be more manageable, and you can spend a little more time with your favorite Frida Kahlo painting.

Thursday (03/23)

Linda Gray and Patrick Murray, of Dallas TV fame, are in Dallas (the Winspear, specifically) to reminisce about Dallas and more.

The Turtle Creek Chorale flips your favorite songs on their heads, as the men’s chorus interpolates everything from “Britney Spears to Mumford and Sons.”

Louie Anderson, longtime stand-up comic, one-time Family Feud host, present Emmy winner for his role on FX’s Baskets, performs at the Granada.
