Texas ratified the 19th amendment 99 years ago this June, granting women the right to vote. Melissa Prycer, the Executive Director of Dallas Heritage Village, explores how the Women’s Suffrage Movement manifested in Dallas and Texas as an adjacent pop-up exhibit teaches attendees nearby. It all happens at Fair Park’s Hall of State.

Helena Deland‘s dreamy songs blend ’60s Parisian pop with psych-leaning fuzz-rock in a way fans of Melody’s Echo Chamber, Gemma Hayes, or Jay Som will appreciate. The Montreal singer is at The Modern in Fort Worth.

Saturday Night Live co-head writer and Weekend Update anchor Michael Che comes to the Majestic behind his own stand-up.
