Things to Do

Things To Do In Dallas This Weekend: July 6-9

Frida Fest, Neil Gaiman, and more.

Thursday (07/06)

One of the biggest draws of the Dallas Museum of Art’s wonderful Mexico 1900-1950 exhibition has perhaps been the work of Frida Kahlo, whose distinctive look is fairly easy to replicate with a unibrow and shawl. And now here we are: Frida Fest, which will try to set the Guinness world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as the famous artist.

At Stage West in Fort Worth, the steamy play Sex With Strangers seems guaranteed to titillate or scandalize. Or both.

Friday (07/07)

In a tribute to the five officers slain last year in downtown Dallas, a gathering at City Hall will include a memorial ceremony, a commemorative walk, and speeches by local leaders. Please register ahead of time if you plan on attending.

Sandman and American Gods author Neil Gaiman reads, speaks, and hobnobs at the Winspear.

Leon Bridges, the most successful singer to come out of North Texas in years, is a remarkable artist and, by all accounts, a very nice guy. All good reason to celebrate his birthday with DJ Sober at It’ll Do.

Saturday (07/08)

Honoring the five officers killed at a downtown rally this week last year, CrossFit Heat is hosting a memorial event that will benefit a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the families of fallen officers.

Second Thought Theatre premieres The Necessitiesa new play set in a small East Texas town where every family is unhappy in its own way.

An exhibition of woodblock prints and paintings from Japan’s Edo period is on display in Styled With Poiseopening at the Crow Collection.

Sunday (07/09)

The Fine Arts Chamber Players’ Basically Beethoven Festival is a free show loaded with great classical music at Moody Performance Hall.
