It’s looking a little gloomy, but it’s also not murderously hot. I’ll take it, because that means it’s a perfect night to do something out of doors, for once.
The Dallas Arboretum has been selling out most of their Tuesday/Thursday evening concerts, but tonight, there’s still space for you to spread your blanket. Moving Colors is the featured band, and while at first I thought they had some sort on-stage painting routine while playing music, this doesn’t seem to be the case. Regardless, their repertoire seems to include everything from Vanilla Ice to Stevie Ray Vaughn. Also, a friendly tip–the prizes for the costume contests are pretty great. Tonight’s contest is “most colorful wig or hairdo” and the prize is a $100 gift card to Tootsie’s. You can take the wig off, people, so why not go for it?
Also this evening, Jersey Boys has the stage at the Winspear, and it’s just as entertaining as it was back when the touring production visited in 2008. As our FrontRow critic Lindsey Wilson said in her review,Â we really can’t seem to get enough of the blue-collar Garden State boys. The docu-musical follows ’60s legends the Four Seasons on their meteoric rise to fame–as well as the band’s eventual fall. Of course songs such as “Working My Way Back To You,” “Let’s Hang On,” and “Sherry” find their way into the plot. You can still get tickets.
