FULL BEAKS: It's the third Friday of the month, so we'd be remiss not to remind you that the Dallas Museum of Art stays open until midnight. Tonight's installment is ideal for Internet separation anxiety sufferers: patrons will be sent on a Twitter Treasure Hunt, a live Twitter feed [@DallasMuseumArt] collected from the hashtag #iMuseum will be projected on an Atrium wall, participants will be encouraged to take 30-second guerilla video plugging the museum and an updated version of the telephone game replacing whispers with video will go down. These events are leaning more toward making art than experiencing it each time, and we have to say, we're digging the shift. Check out the full schedule here. $10. 6PM-midnight.
NEW NATIVE: Seen the Pan-Ector guys out screening shirts at events like last week's Modern 'til Midnight? The artists and workmen behind those tables also helm Meme Gallery in Denton, Rubber Gloves' neighbor of a few months. Tonight, local artist Brett Rees' rootsy geometric folk-art is the focus of an opening. Sample Rees' curious work and meet its unassuming creator at the Today in Denton blog. Music by Ian Bangs, Oh Lewis and God Mother. Rubber Gloves. $3; $5 for under 21. 9PM.
ONE PARTY CAN'T COVER IT: Recently, trombonist Vincent Gardner came into town amid final rehearsals for a debut of a multi-medium tribute to Langston Hughes' "Simple Stories." A celebration of the poet's later work called Langston Hughes' Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz is planned at Irving Arts Center with the Ron McCurdy Jazz Quartet and writer Catherine Whiteman as your creative tour guides through the tumult of the 1960s as they see Hughes saw it. Find tickets here. 8PM.
