KICKING THE BALL AROUND AT MOCKINGBIRD STATION: Today starts the World Cup, and for fans that need someone to sing, yell and drink with, Trinity Hall Irish Pub, located in Mockingbird Station, will once again be screening all World Cup games as they have done in years past. While there is no cover to get in, the pub won’t be taking reservations as many of the chairs and tables will be moved to allow guests to move more freely. For full information on the World Cup screenings at Trinity Hall, visit http://www.trinityhall.tv/wc2010.htm. Vapiano will also be screening World Cup games in their ultra-sleek lounge throughout the summer. The Angelika Film Center will also serve as overflow for the more popular games such as USA vs. England on June 12 and USA vs. Algeria on June 23. Admission will be free and there will be bars inside the theaters. Check their website - http://www.angelikafilmcenter.com - for full details.

SAVING MUSIC FROM ITSELF: No matter what side of the contemplative coin you fall on, there is one thing that everyone can agree on about the music of Doug Burr. It is deeply personal yet has the capacity to reach it’s listener at their individual need. With 2009’s The Shawl, Burr proved that the ancient and sacred texts of the Psalms are as relevant on the stages of smoky clubs as in King David’s court. Tonight at the Hydrant in Denton Mr. Burr will perform the The Shawl in it's entirety, closing this musical chapter as he prepares to usher in his newest work O Ye Devastator. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of Denton’s finest artists playing a seminal work. Glen Farris opens.
DIP INTO A MOVIE: Have you been thinking what we're thinking? It's getting hot out there! You walk by a broken water main and you want to roll around in it, right there on the street. You walk past the Trinity and you want to dive in. Things are getting bad, but they're about to get better. Say goodbye to the week and usher in the weekend with a movie under the stars and by the pool at the Fairmont Dallas. Lounge poolside or grab a float and take a dip while you enjoy the flick. Free and open to the Dallas community.
