Through March 24| Throughout Oak Cliff
214Selena—a dayslong homage to the late Selena Quintanilla-Perez—is celebrating its ninth year, and Oak Cliff is its epicenter. The event began Wednesday and continues through Sunday and will include Loteria, an art show, a screening of the 1997 biopic Selena (“anything for Selenas”), a market, lookalike and talent contests, and a cumbia party with the artist’s nephew, Principe Q.

Amos Lee with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra

March 22, 7:30 p.m.| Meyerson Symphony Center
Philadelphia singer/songwriter Amos Lee will perform in collaboration with the Dallas Symphony, which will be conducted by Andrew Lipke. Lee has been busy touring with various artists this year and will release his latest album, Transmissions, this summer. His last two albums were tributes to Lucinda Williams and Chet Baker, respectively, and his last album of original music was 2022’s Dreamland. This Dallas show marks the beginning of his 2024 headline tour.

Descendents and Circle Jerks

March 23, 7 p.m.| House of Blues
Punk legends Descendents and Circle Jerks announced a joint U.S. tour a few months ago, and will make their way to the House of Blues in Dallas Saturday night. Prior to the tour, both covered each other’s classics for a now sold-out split 7-inch vinyl album and also produced an amusing commercial.

Paula Poundstone

March 23, 7:30 p.m.| Winspear Opera House
She started as a standup comic in the 1980s, and ever since, Paula Poundstone has made a name for herself with her brand of observational humor. She has starred in several HBO comedy specials, appeared in movies like Inside Out, written award-nominated books, and is a regular on NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” She also hosts a comedy podcast, “Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone.”

Patti LuPone

March 23, 8 p.m.| Eisemann Center, Richardson
Fresh off her Tony-winning stint as Joanne in the Broadway revival of Company, Patti LuPone will bring her new retrospective concert tour, A Life in Notes, to Richardson’s Eisemann Center Saturday night. LuPone has appeared in many movies and TV shows but is also known for her legendary work on Broadway, including bringing Eva Peron to life in Evita. The concert is directed by the Tony-winning Scott Wittman.


March 24 and 25| American Airlines Center
Madge will head to American Airlines Center for a two-night stay starting Sunday night as part of The Celebration Tour. It’s been more than a decade since the singer was in North Texas, but it looks like the Material Girl will make up for that with this tour—set lists from other shows indicate she’ll perform some of the best from her 14-album career, from “Like a Virgin” to more current hits. Bob the Drag Queen will open, but judging from other tour stops, there could be additional acts. Expect a late night; she’s known for her tardiness.


March 24, 8 p.m.| Majestic Theatre
Juanes, who hails from Colombia, has won 26 Latin Grammy awards and four Grammy awards during his career, and his latest tour supports his new studio album, Via Cotidiana. But fans are also appreciating that it includes his greatest hits—more than 17,000 fans in New York lined up in March to get tickets for his July show.
