Things To Do In Dallas Tonight: Feb. 20

Have you read Peter’s dispatch on the possibility of affordable artist housing in the Arts District yet? You should. It’d be right next to Museum Tower. To quote How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days, drama, drama, drama.

Speaking of the Arts District, we have the ghost of John Denver at Dallas City Performance Hall tonight. The “Rocky Mountain High” crooner, though deceased, will be here in spirit during this massive tribute. Not as a hologram, fortunately. His estate put the concert together to honor the man’s legacy of music and activism, and the show features a combination of vintage video and performance from members of Denver’s original band and a live string section. I’m listening to “Take Me Home, Country Roads” right now in tribute. You can still snag balcony seats if you consider yourself a number one fan.

Also this evening, there’s the Dzine artist talk at the Dallas Contemporary. The Chicago artist’s work was the centerpiece of the museum’s Phenomenon fundraiser a couple weeks ago, and now he’ll talk about the world of “kustom kulture” car customization, which he translates to glittery, culturally relevant displays of vintage vehicles and abstract paintings. Afterward, drop by the Moth for zuccini chips and a beer, or Ascension Coffee for a nice glass of wine to wind down your Wednesday. It’ll open until 9 p.m.
