What’s Cookin’ In The Cliff This Weekend?
Tonight is the ultimate “Cover” night at the Kessler Theater — “Homage Nation: Local Artists Cover Their Influences.” A handful of some of OC’s fave local artists are getting together tonight for an evening of thoughtful covers. Each artist has chosen a legacy that influenced him at some point in his career. On the docket: Christ Holt of Sorta and Chad Stockslager of The King Bucks will cover Simon and Garfunkel; Brent Best of Slobberstone will do a set of Paul Westerberg songs; Ryan Thomas Becker of RTB2 will do a tribute to Sparklehorse; and Nicholas Altobelli is taking on Ryan Adams. This show is sure to be a blast of past, present, and future!
OK, so we know it’s likely to be over 100 degrees tomorrow, but com’ on and pretend it’s December for the day. Kessler Park United Methodist Church is holding its annual Christmas Bazaar tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Vendors will be selling everything from homemade holiday goods to vintage jewelry to books and CDs. Not to mention, there will be plenty of Christmas decorations, carols, and, er, hot dogs? OK. Sounds good for July.
Lookin’ for a furry friend? Paws In the City and 303 Bar & Grill in the BAD are hosting a dog adoption tomorrow from 4 to 7 p.m. Relax with an ice-cold brewsky or a delish house martini, maybe grab a burger, and make a pup’s dream come true.
Been trying to get to the Kimbell all summer, but it just has come to fruition. Oak Cliff’s Christ Episcopal Church is hosting a trip to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth tomorrow via the Trinity Railway Express. Discover the ancient Japanese festival tradition in which children record their wishes on beautiful paper decorations during the seventh-month celebration of Tanabata. Along with children’s films and enchanting folktales, activities will highlight artworks in the Kimbell’s Asian art collection.
