Things To Do In Dallas Tonight: Jan. 16

Tennis, Elvis, America.


Just a few things tonight.

First, there’s Tennis, playing Club Dada tonight. It seems like the married indie pop duo have a really nice thing going. They’ve discussed being influenced by The Shirelles, which I’m on board with. FrontRow’s Christopher Mosley has more on the band over on FrontRow, since this is one of his concert picks from the week. And since you’ll be in Deep Ellum, you’re set for good eating and drinking options before and after the show.

In the Arts District, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra begins performances of a weekend concert series centered on Antonin Dvorák’s New World Symphony, the Czech composer’s ninth. It’s so called because he was inspired during his time in New York as the director of the National Conservatory of Music in America, producing an ode to the land of opportunity that is at once full of promise and tinged with a longing for home. Guest pianist Hélène Grimaud rounds out the program with her interpretation of Brahams’ Piano Concerto No. 2.

Finally, the Bass Hall gets all shook up. Elvis Lives unites the four finalists from Elvis Presley Enterprises’ worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. Ostensibly, they’ve got the pipes, the threads, and the moves that would make the King himself wonder if he’s seeing double. Celebrate Presley’s life with a performance that takes audiences through each stage of his unforgettable career.
