What’s Cookin’ in The Cliff This Weekend?
“Last night, I was bent on, gettin’ my drink on, all night long,” sings Dallas-based Country-Rock singer Miles Penhall. Go watch him perform at Bar Belmont tonight at 7 p.m., and get your drink on too.
Glen Phillips, the former frontman of Toad the Wet Sprocket and Grant-Lee Phillips of Grant Lee Buffalo have joined forces on tour. Although they’re not actually related, they’ve got a lot in common, from both fronting 90′s alternative bands, to penning some seriously thoughtful lyrics. They present solo sets tonight at the Kessler Theater at 8 p.m. Tickets here.
Although I’m not a fan of country music, I’d be interested to go see Junior Brown play just to see the instrument he invented, the “guit-steel,” a double-necked guitar, in action. He’ll be at the Kessler Theater at 8 p.m. on Saturday with a surprise guest opener, so if you’re a country fan or just plain curious, you can get your tickets here.
Head on over to the Bishop Arts District around noon on Sunday for the fourth-annual Cliff Fest. The afternoon will celebrate everything that makes Oak Cliff diverse – its talented residents, delicious homemade cooking and crafts, its vibrant art scene – the list goes on. There will even be a chili cook-off, and it looks like you can still register here (it’s free!) if you’re interested in participating. I’d like to put my order in now for a vegan chili that’s light on the beans – who’s up to the challenge?
