    Matthew Weiner speaks in Fort Worth tonight. Jon Hamm not included.

    MOBILE MADISON AVENUE.: The American Advertising Federation of Fort Worth is dripping with sexy, people, and Matthew Weiner has everything to do with that. Besides, you know, creating Mad Men and turning the time-honored "shady advertiser" into the "mysterious, stumbling genious advertiser" in the public psyche, Weiner is speaking to members of the group and others who have $75 to hand over for some drink-clinking and drama-developing action. Oh, and there's that bit about the AAF's history somewhere in there. Casa Manana, 6:30-9:30PM.

    NIGHT LIFER: Music critic Matt Weitz reviews performances by bands like KISS and Megadeth for the Dallas Morning News. The freelancer and former Dallas Observer music editor comes to the Allen Public Library to confrim his remaining abilities to hear and to share his thoughts on how technology has transformed everything about music, for Hungarian fly fishers and fellow music scribes alike. If you're planning on picking his brain for insight into Mario Tarradell's puzzling assessment of the vast sonic universe, take a number. Free to the public, 7PM.

    SQUARE STUDENT: The Geometric Madi Museum, among other things, is home to the sign that once marked Arcadia, the now-defunct Greenville Avenue venue. In the spirit of community, the sign inspired a contemporary art discussion series -- Arcadia -- and tonight's installment features Dallas artist Michael Tichansky. The topic: Post-modern Geometric Art - East Meets West. Come for wine and cheese at 5:30PM.
