HIGH CONCEPTS: Dallas Fashion and Art collects local designers and artists to produce a collection of high-art fashion for a show at 4 Dog Studio. Names we haven't heard before like Maristella Citelli and Chris Judy will tackle this year's theme, Reduce Reuse Recycle, as they freestyle other submissions. Rumor has it that Chef Blythe Beck might show up with grub, too. A suggested donation of $10 at the door is meant to benefit Family Gateway and the Whittmore Petereson Institute for Neuro Immune Disease. 7PM.
MART HOP: "Change is gonna come like age is gonna come." The bit of prophecy on Something to hold on to by Dem Southernfolkz could be applied to the Dallas hip-hop scene. And the can-do revolution is led by DS and their socially-conscious, sophisticated style, a cool rest for ears ringing from violence. Their show at The Cavern with They Were Stars and Ell Laporte is not to be missed. 10PM. $5.
LIVE EVAL: The latest installment of the State of the Arts series at the Dallas Museum of Art consults Kim J. Campbell, founder of the Dallas Wind Symphony and world-hopping trombonist, and two artists featured in the DMA's Performance/Art exhibit, Frances Bagley and Tom Orr. Why should you care? Well, these panel members are currently or have been freelance artists working in Dallas and elsewhere, and they know how accomodating this area is for susbisting on the fine arts as opposed to other regions. Reserve your free seat to hear their takes on working as an artist in Dallas during this pivotal era at 7PM in the Horchow Auditorium.
